Hi, I'm Sarah

I have tutored more than 30 GCSE, A level and 11+ students all over London, in home and online. This has accumulated to successive years of tuition, with students proudly obtaining fantastic grades. My tutelage has spanned to students from London, Private schools (e.g. Eton), Grammar schools (applicants particularly) and even international students (IGCSE). I study Masters of Pharmaceutics at UCL and have achieved 7 A* GCSE grades.
