I am from London and originally Vietnam. I attended James Allen`s Girls` School in East Dulwich, studied Art, History of Art, Geography, Maths and Critical Thinking at A Level (A*, A, A, B, B).
I applied for Cambridge and got into Trinity College, the most prestigious college at Cambridge University and there is only 1 or 2 spaces for Architecture students. I then went on to study Architecture at The University of Nottingham and graduated last year.
I was 1 of 10 adults worldwide to be awarded the Engage scholarship from Google`s Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute for Advanced Emotional Intelligence, Mindfulness and Neuroscience. I am trained to teach an 8 week beginners/advanced course for mindfulness and I combine my knowledge about well-being into my style of tutoring.
I have over 2,500 hours of teaching under my belt.
My approach is rigorous and supportive. Depending on how lenient you want my tutoring style to be, it is up to you! I am keen on getting the results that you want.
I have always had to rely on myself to achieve the grades that I want, to understand each subject intimately and what the exam boards and tears are asking of you - this is also thanks to some amazing tears I have had in the past. I understand the challenges that comes with learning, the stress, the ins and outs of each subject and all the short cuts in between.
I believe it is important to connect with a student, understand them, empathise and teach some emotional resilience - key in achieving the grades you want. My knowledge in mindfulness is an advantage, as I have learnt tools that has been proven scientifically to increase focus, productivity, deeper awareness, calm and reduced stress. This is how you can reach a flow state, where it is enjoyable to be challenged in what you are learning, as well as being able to become more internally motivated.
