Information about Evie

I`m a Cambridge Philosophy graduate with great experience preparing students for Oxbridge interviews and the tests for London`s top private schools. Having attended St Paul`s and Westminster, I know the process inside out!

I`ve tutored extensively in several different countries, including being flown out to Mumbai to prepare a student for her 13+ exams, and teaching skiing prodigies for a winter in the French Alps. I have experience teaching children and teenagers of all ages, through play, conversation and collaboration.

Alongside Philosophy, English is a speciality. I`m a published author, having ghost-written a book about poetry that reached number one in the Amazon poetry lists, and which was serialised in a major broadsheet newspaper. I`m currently working on my first novel.

When choosing a tutor, I think creativity and fun are the most important factors. Of course the academic side matters, but everyone you`re considering already has that in spades. My forte lies in making things interesting and engaging, and in being sure to make the tutoring sessions more exciting than the lessons students resent in school. I get on very well with kids and teenagers, and I believe it`s far easier to learn when you can also laugh.

Note: I`ve left my availability grid blank as I`d rather schedule things over the site`s messenger. The time slots they offer don`t have enough precision.

Experience: April - June 2018

University-level philosophy tuition 7 days a week for a student at SOAS university, in the months leading up to her 2nd-year exams. The student was dyslexic, dyspraxic and had ADHD, so considerable SEN support was necessary. Her exam results vastly exceeded her and her parents’ expectations.

2017 - Spring 2018
Six months’ residential tuition in a French ski resort, providing a full education for five prodigy skiers aged 12 and 13. The role involved teaching a full syllabus to children of two different year groups and from four different schools. A great deal of flexibility was required, in order to accommodate their training schedule and changing weather conditions. There was also a strong pastoral element, as I lived with them full-time and took a lot of responsibility within the chalet.
On my return, daily tuition in the humanities for a Chinese 13+ student over the Easter holidays, and English GCSE teaching for another Chinese student every other day.

2017
Two weeks’ intensive full-time work with a gap year student on his Oxford application, followed by many hours’ interview preparation. I’m proud to say he achieved his place!

Two weeks’ full-time teaching at a Philosophy summer school, for which I received some of the best feedback on the programme.

One week’s full-time teaching at a Young Writers’ summer school, teaching students aged 11 - 13 about poetry, journalism and story writing.

50+ hours’ Philosophy and Theology A level tuition for several students

50+ hours’ 11+, 13+ and GCSE tuition

50+ hours’ intensive English tuition for Chinese GCSE students, including both Skype and in-person school-equivalent sessions

2016

Three weeks’ full-time 13+ and 11+ tuition for two students in Mumbai. I was flown out to give intensive training in the run up to their exams and entry to the English public school system. I bonded with the children, joined the family for meals and even attended the children’s Christmas play. Both got into all their favoured schools, and the family and I are still in contact

150+ hours’ governessing for a French 4 and 6 year old. Taught English and general school skills, in addition to learning through play and taking the children on educational outings.

50+ hours’ Philosophy and Theology A-level tuition

50+ hours’ Oxbridge entrance tuition

30+ hours’ 11+ and 13+ tuition

20+ hours’ pre-school tuition for a Russian 3-year-old

2015

Informal and formal tutoring work, including English, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Oxbridge entrance and writing skills.

2014

Selected for high-intensity internship with Ashinaga, Japan’s foremost educational NGO. Lived and worked with disadvantaged students, mentoring, teaching English skills and philosophy, and raising aspirations.
