Tutoring experience:

For the past year I have been working as a live-in private tutor for a lovely 15 year old girl in Moscow. I have been covering science, history, maths, drama, French and of course, English and have helped her to prepare for UK schoolentrance exams – she has now accepted a place and is looking forward to a new chapter of her life in England. I have a great relationship with both theI have also tutored Russian students (11 – 19) at an elite summer school in the UK.

What makes your teaching style unique?

My teaching style is dynamic and creative – I firmly believe that if a student is interested and engaged in the material then of course they will gain more from their studies and will be motivated to do their own research around topics. I aim to encourage self-confidence and an enquiring mind-set in mystudent, developing skills for life as well as skills for the classroom. I love the scope that tutoring allows for creativity and enjoy the privilege of watching my students’ progress.

What do you do apart from tutoring?

I love reading and constantly have a book on the go. I am passionate about the arts, particularly theatre and try to see as much as possible, whilst also being very keen on acting myself. I am a competent horse rider and a talented cook and am passionate about good food and travelling (particularly around France). My other main interests are writing and music – I play the oboe to grade 8 standard and have travelled around the UK and abroad with various orchestras.
