I am a highly experienced private tutor, and have been tutoring part time since graduating with a First-Class honours degree in 2010 and full time since completing my PGCE in Economics and Business Studies at UCL. Prior to commencing my Economics degree, I attended Old Palace School of John Whitgift where I completed my GCSE’s and A levels. I achieved 3 A’s in Government and Politics, French and Economics A level. I have accumulated a wealth of experience, having taught in China for one year, worked in three London schools, been a senior tutor at a tuition centre, home-schooled students with complex needs and delivered Skype tuition to students across the globe, I am adept at working with a wide range of pupils of different abilities.
I am passionate about empowering young people to take ownership of their studies and get excited about the doors education can open, whether that’s getting into a particular school, mapping the path for a future vocation or just exploring a fascinating new topic. I believe that one-on-one tuition gives students the perfect opportunity to ask questions which would perhaps not be thoroughly answered in a class environment. I often find that through this process my students develop a real passion for subjects, which they previously didn’t necessarily enjoy. After an initial session to assess a student, I will tailor lesson plans based on ability and the school or result they want to achieve.
My qualifications include:
A levels in Government and Politics, Mathematics, French and Economics.
BSc in Economics.
PGCE in Business Studies and Economics.

Experience: I have a particular interest in teaching KS1 and KS2 Mathematics and English, with special experience teaching for the 7+, 11+ and Common Entrance examinations. I have successfully tutored students for entrance into Dulwich College, Wallington County Grammar School, Cumnor House, St.Dunstans, among others, as well as Oxbridge applications. I am fascinated by the application of Economics and Business Studies, I strive to instil my passion for my subjects within my students. Having achieved a first class honours in Economics and teaching both Business Studies and Economics in an outstanding grammar school, I am equipped to teach at a high standard. At present, I am an examiner for both AQA and Edexcel Business Studies and Economics A level examinations, this experience has enabled me to mark an abundance of students scri pts, who have been taught using various methods and in differing environments, this has enhanced my understanding and given me a deeper insight into how to teach various examination techniques. I have extensive experience with working with students who have found Mathematics challenging and mathematically able students aiming for the highest results. I believe that everyone can understand Mathematics, if it is explained in the right way. I pride myself on making even the densest topics interesting and accessible.Contact this Tutor

A good tutor, who works well with my daughter
My son really enjoys his lessons with Rebecca. She is patient and explains things meticulously so that he understands the topics and they revise topics afterwards to ensure they are embedded.
I would definitely recommend her!
