Oxford grad student and highly resourceful tutor with 12 years of experience.

I’m a sought-after tutor with twelve years of teaching and tutoring experience in Canada, the United Kingdom, Jamaica, Czech Republic, Bahrain, and Ghana. I taught at a private school in Bahrain for six years, and for four of those years I was an IBDP Literature/IBDP Language and Literature teacher whose students not only achieved some of the best results in the school, but achieved results that often exceeded IB world averages. With my experience as an IB teacher, tutor, and examiner, I’m highly attuned to the requirements and expectations of the IB programme; I have a well-rounded understanding from the vantage points of teacher and assessor. I’m in possession of excellent IB materials, resources, and exemplars. Many students have earned 6s and 7s under my tutelage. I can transfer this knowledge and expertise to A-level and GCSE tutoring as well. I’m familiar with 11+ entrance exams and have extensive experience preparing students of all ages for different standardised tests. I instil lifelong study skills in my students. As a certified SAT Associate Supervisor who has administered and invigilated over ten sessions, I have expert knowledge on SAT preparedness, content, time management, and essay writing. I've helped numerous students with their UCAS applications, university interview preparation, and personal statements. For those who are English language learners, I have considerable experience teaching English as a second/foreign language. I’ve prepared students for the IELTS and I’ve helped numerous students in Canada and Czech Republic (of varying levels of English proficiency) with conversational English, grammar instruction, and speaking/listening/writing/reading activities. I’m committed to my pupils’ academic excellence by encouraging their intellectual curiosity. My teaching style fosters independent inquiry, and I pride myself on my passionate, engaging, student-led lessons that empower pupils to take ownership of their learning. I encourage my students to analyse and think critically, and my ultimate goal is to provide students with the analytical tools to continue their studies independently with confidence and conviction.

Experienced tutor and postgraduate at Paris Lodron University of Salzburg

I am a historian and art historian who recently completed two master’s programmes with distinction at the University of Salzburg in Austria and have been working as a tutor for 5 years both in a university setting with adults at the age of 17 to 70 and in an informal environment with children at the age of 4 to 15. As I am also trained as a classical guitarist and singer after having completed a 15-years education at an Austrian musical school and an experienced stage musician, I have been teaching classical guitar, singing and music theory as well as art history with a special emphasis on iconography and academic writing since 2015. Although I am a native German speaker, I also give one-to-one Italian and English lessons in a marketing company whereas I teach all of these subjects both face-to-face and via online learning structures such as Skype, Whatsapp and Microsoft teams. All my lessons are tailor-made regarding every individual student's wishes about contents, methodical and theoretical basics in order to make every lesson fun, enjoyable and the most useful for my students! If you are looking for an enthusiastic, passionate and patient guitar, singing, music theory, Italian, English, history or art history teacher who has lots of experience and loves to help you, your child or partner succeed in their chosen subject, I would love to offer my service.
