Information about Helena
I am an English, French, Spanish, Italian, entrance examination and Oxbridge teacher. An examiner of the aforementioned subjects, I am able to help students achieve the best possible marks in their exams. I am also a PGCE qualified teacher.
I studied modern foreign languages at Oxford University. Since graduating from university in 2017, I have not only taught languages, but have also taught English across a range of exam boards and ages. My students results have consistently been exemplary (e.g. student achieved A* having had a predicted grade C).
I initially tutored alongside a corporate role in financial sales. Passionate about teaching, I now teach full-time.
I have extensive experience teaching children from as early as 3 years of age, both online and in-person. I find that my patient, encouraging approach is well-suited to teaching younger students, in addition to adults.
