Polly (Tutor in Purley)
Information about Polly
I have more than 30 years experience in education. I used to be a university lecturer, teaching electronic engineering and computer science. I have successfully sent a lot of my students to top schools and universities, such as Eton College, Oxford, Cambridge, and Yale and Princeton in the US. I click with the students very quickly and understand very well what they need from the first couple of lessons. I have a very broad experience in primary, secondary and higher education. I have the ability to make a complex subject much simpler. I have helped numerous students achieve their goals and get into their dream schools and universities.
Availability: I am available at any time. I am currently living in Malaysia on a temporary basis. I can only offer lessons via Skype at the momen until I relocate back to Surrey. I charge half price for lessons offered via Skype. The best way to contact me is through email.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have been doing private tuition for nearly two decade. I have a lot of experience on tutoring 11+ (Maths, English, Reasoning), 13+ Maths, GCSE Maths, A level Maths, scholarship Maths exams. I have a lot of successful stories of sending children to top schools (Eton College, King`s College London, Tiffin School, Sutton Grammar School, Nonsuch High School for Girls, etc), and as well as top universities in the country and world-wide. My students have received offers from Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, LSE, Edinburgh, Yale and Princeton in the US. I am very good at boosting children`s confidence, knowing what they need and developing their analytical skills. I often have a good rapport with my students. They enjoy my lessons and think I give them the best explanation on subjects and concepts . I make maths fun for them, especially for younger children.
I also provide consultations on university applications for both UK and US universities, such as UCAS applications, writing personal statements, common app essays, scholarship/financial aid applications, etc.
I am a native Chinese speaker, speaking very good English. I teach Mandarin as well. I currently offer Chinese translation and business communication service and as well as Chinese copywriting to financial organisations and commercial companies.
