Information about Natasha

I am a full time private tutor in English, Literature, Modern Foreign Languages, Classics and Academic Skills; I work hard with every student on a personal and individual basis to make sure that they can achieve their potential and attain the highest grades possible. My students often boost their grades dramatically within a few months, or achieve fluency in a language within a year.

I have over 8 years experience in 1-1 tutoring, so I am comfortable teaching a variety of exam boards (CIE, AQA, Edexcel, OCR) and also helping more casual learners or adult learners with specific goals. I regularly tutor at Degree, Masters and PHD level, with a particular focus on essay and academic writing. I am an approved AQA examiner; qualified to mark exam papers in both English Literature and Language GCSE and A Level.

I love learning of all kinds and I hope to pass on this enthusiasm to my students. I provide a professional, yet friendly and welcoming environment where students are encouraged to learn and also to enjoy their subjects.

Each person learns best in his or her own particular way, so I provide personalised lesson plans to meet the individual needs of my students.

Availability: I currently have limited availability.

I offer intensive lessons for University and A Level, where we sit together and go over an essay or exam paper until you are fully happy with it.

Monday- Friday, 9am-10pm - weekend lessons are available for students with imminent deadlines.

I have a been teaching online for over 5 years. I`m available to teach via Skype if students are not able to travel.

ALL STUDENTS ARE ENTITLED TO A FREE TRIAL LESSON.

LESSONS MAY BE CANCELLED OR CHANGED FREE OF CHARGE WITH 24HRS NOTICE.

Experience: PRIVATE TUITION
I have been a tutor for 8 years, teaching a variety of students of all ages and levels in a number of different subjects. I teach a wide range of subjects to high proficiency because I love learning - Literature, Languages and Classics are particular passions of mine which I`ve studied to a high degree of proficiency over the years.

TEACHING / EXAMINER POSITIONS
I spent 2 years as Head of English for CHS (Cambridge Home School. I constructed syllabuses for and taught lower school, iGCSE and A Level English Language and English Literature, though our exam board is CIE, I`m also familiar with other exam boards, AQA and Edexcel in particular. I have been an examiner for AQA English for the past two years.

OXBRIDGE APPLICATIONS / UNIVERSITY ENTRANCE
I regularly help students with their Personal Statements, entrance exams and interview technique for top universities, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Durham and UCL. I can help in this regard with any chosen subject, recently I have helped students with Psychology entrance exams for Oxford and Cambridge, as well as writing personal statements for Business Management and History.

ENTRANCE EXAMS / INTERVIEWS
I assist students regularly with entrance exams and interview technique for top level schools, especially the 11+. 13+ and 16+ English and Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning skills.

TEFL
I am a fully qualified TEFL teacher (English Language - Distinction Grade with TEFL Cambridge Intensive Course, Business English, Academic English), having worked with five online teaching companies (in the UK, China, Russia and Japan).

DEGREE
In 2012 I graduated from the University of Bristol with a First Class degree in English. I am confident in tutoring both English Language and English Literature, as well as general research and essay writing skills.

OTHER QUALIFICATIONS
I have an A Level in French, and I attained full marks in my speaking exam and my coursework. I love to read in French, cook French food and I visit friends in France regularly. I am happy to teach French to students of all levels and ages I am very familiar with the AQA and CIE exam specifications.

In 2012 I lived in Florence, Italy, where I attended a language school and picked up Italian. Having learnt through total immersion, I achieved a high rate of fluency in a short period of time. I love Italian culture as much as the language, and have spent time managing an Italian restaurant in the past. I currently teach CIE Italian but am also familiar with AQA.

Natasha was excellent and a great help on the run up to my daughters English Lit A Level. We really appreciated her fitting us in very last minute and cramming in so much in such a short amount of time. Thank you!

Tutors Response :

Thanks so much for your lovely feedback, I really loved tutoring Sophie - she`s a bright girl and she works hard. I hope she`s having a well deserved rest over the Summer and that she enjoys uni next year. All the best, Natasha

Although having just stated Spanish lessons with Natasha, I find her an extremely pleasant and capable tutor,and I feel confident that she will help me achieve my goal.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Natasha, whether you are a complete beginner as myself, or you require a much more advanced level.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Roger! Looking forward to helping you build your confidence in Spanish.

I found Natasha to be very quick to help and a very good teacher. One of the benefits With being taught by Natasha is that she can teach several languages, is adaptable and patient. I certainly feel Iv made the right choice and will definately be asking her to teach me more in the future. Thanks again Natasha!

Natasha has been tutoring my son in preparation for his upcoming SATS. He instantly felt at ease with her as she has such a calming understanding nature (with great knowledge too)
He comes out after every session and says `I really enjoyed that` and as English has never been his most favourite subject I can only thank Natasha so much for giving my son the confidence he needs at this important stage in his schooling.
