**NOW ACCEPTING STUDENTS FOR ONLINE TUITION IN ENGLISH, LITERATURE, CREATIVE WRITING, FRENCH, ITALIAN, LATIN AND CLASSICS***
Is coronavirus disrupting your education? I`m here to help! I`ve been a professional online private tutor for over 8 years, and I teach a range of subjects and levels. As well as providing lessons and resources, I can set you weekly tasks to complete, create and mark mock exams and give essay / academic writing help and feedback. Feel free to get in touch for more info.
Here`s an example of some of the students I`m currently helping:
- Y9 / Y10 and AS Level students preparing for GCSEs and A2s next year
- Y11/ A2 students whose predicted grades are lower than needed to get into higher education (in this case I can help with appeals or prep for the November and next year resits)
- International students, particularly those taking CIE / Edexcel and IBO
- Common Entrance exam prep
- Students who are doing retakes / resits and need to prepare a body of work to submit to teachers, or plan to take the exam at a later date
- Adult learners of Modern foreign languages
For more information, read my full Bio below:
I tutor in English Language and Literature, Classics and Modern Foreign Languages. I love learning of all kinds, and I strive 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. My students often boost their grades dramatically within a few months, or achieve fluency in a language within a year.
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. We can work at your own pace, and target your specific problem areas.
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 with specific goals.
I regularly tutor at degree level (Masters / PhD), I also spent 2 years as Head of English for CHS, where I was in charge of creating a syllabus based around the Cambridge Exam Board, for IGCSE and A Level. I am also an approved AQA examiner, qualified to mark exam papers in both English Literature and Language GCSE and A Level.
I`ve been passionate about Languages and Literature since a very young age, and I`m an aspiring writer, having had several essays and poems published over the years. I also offer Creative Writing lessons, where I can teach students how to perfect their writing techniques and develop a personal, unique style.
Availability: Monday- Friday, 9am-10pm - weekend lessons are available for students with imminent deadlines.
I have a been teaching online for over 8 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.
Willing to travel: Home Only
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.
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).
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.
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.

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.

Thanks Julian, I look forward to working with you more on your French when you get back :)
I would recommend Natasha without any hesitation. My daughters confidence is returning and her work is greatly improved. Thank you 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.
Natasha is a natural teacher and has a very calm and patient approach with me
Natasha has been teaching me Italian from October 2014. She has a calm influence, approach in our lesson which benefits learning. Thank you Natasha.
