I am a professional educator, qualified in the United States, with over 10 years of teaching experience. I specialize in one-to-one bespoke tuition, professional/working children, and homeschooling. The majority of my students live in Kensington and Chelsea or Westminster and attend competative independent (day or boarding) schools. My experience ranges from test prep to homework assistance and independent coursework. I tutor Entrance Exams (11+, 13+, interviews and applications), GCSE, IB and A-level courses. Additionally, I work with dozens of students every year who need assistance with exam prep, marked coursework or dissertations (Undergraduate and MA/MSc).
As a PhD student, I currently teach undergraduate courses and I was an adjunct professor in New York City before moving to London. Additionally, I have worked as a Classroom Teacher, Supply Teacher, SEN Tutor, Curriculum Designer, Tutor Manager, and managed numerous museum education departments.
My teaching approach is very unique as it stems from a combination of different teaching experiences and education theory. With younger students, I make learning fun and focus on building core concepts which will help them be better students for life. For older students, I focus on becoming independent learners and utilize the Socratic Method.
Outside of the classroom, I have worked for museums and educational companies including giving a number of professional development workshops for history and science teachers. I have also worked with standards to create curriculum as a consultant on projects including documentaries and online education.
