Information about Gurdep

I am a graduate from the London School of Economics, with a BSc in Economics and Philosophy. I have extensive professional experience of teaching and working closely with young people. I have been employed as a Debate Mate Mentor (CRB checked), teaching debate in underprivileged schools as a means of enhancing social mobility. I have also worked as a Lead Coach for Yes Futures, coaching young people through a mentorship programme to develop emotional intelligence, resilience and communication skills. I have also been employed as a Senior Mentor for National Citizen Service (NCS) coaching young people and supporting the delivery of community projects. I have also worked for Little Star Writing, delivering creative writing sessions for primary school children. I have extensive experience of engaging, motivating and working closely with children and young people of all ages and from all backgrounds.

I have over a decade of experience in tutoring, having worked as a private tutor since the beginning of my A-levels. I am capable of catering lessons to specific examining criteria and am familiar with teaching new content. I completed both my Economics and Maths A-Levels privately (scoring 100% in Economics), which required me to be a a good independent learner as well as highly organised and dedicated. These are all qualities I adopt when teaching any of my students. This has placed me in good stead for helping students achieve more, not only through my teaching assistance but through encouraging good study skills/tactics and enhancing an individuals` ability to learn independently and effectively.

Alongside independently completing two A-Levels I have also completed an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification - which consists of a 10000 word essay after private study and research. My EPQ on the work and life of Sylvia Plath, I was awarded a score of 100%. I also scored 100% in my final English Literature A-Level exam. I took Literature and Society as an outside module at University, scoring a high 2.1.

I have a wide array of experience of teaching/working with others, ranging from running Debating and Economics Society in high school to organising various fundraising and charity events. As is evidenced by my charity commitments to youth clubs for several years and through volunteering and as a peer mentor, I really enjoy helping others, and am motivated to help people fulfill their potential.

I am extremely passionate about the subjects I tutor and am committed to working with individuals to help them strive for the best. I am organised and punctual. I will be a patient and approachable tutor.

I am also the founder of London Ballet Classes (www.londonballetclasses) and have completed ballet grades (Royal Academy of Dance) to Grade 8 and Vocational Exams to Advanced Foundation. I am available for private ballet tuition across West London. My regular drop in classes are also available to book online. I have worked as a Community Producer for DanceWest and Teaching Assistant for both SLIDE (South London Inclusive Dance Experience) and Icandance. I have over five years of experience of assisting ballet classes in a school in West London

Availability: I am flexible (most weekday evenings and weekends)

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have experience teaching GCSE and A Level Mathematics and English. I have taught Economics at a GCSE, A Level and undergraduate level. Having sat my Economics and Mathematics A levels privately I feel comfortable in my ability to help students not only with their academic work but to help them develop the skills they need to become independent learners.

Working as a Debate Mate Mentor I have also received training to make me as effective a teacher as possible. Though this is particularly targeted to ages 11 - 16, a lot of what I have learnt has been widely applicable to all my students.

As well as teaching for exams I have worked with multiple students on their personal statements for University applications and I have worked with adults who want to improve their conversational English skills/ interview preparation.

Gurdep helped me to clearly understand Economics (basic theory and how to analyse and answer the questions) in my first year degree exam preparation within a very short period. By taking her tuition once a week only for 2 months, I achieved my required results and gained the knowledge needed for me to carry on to the next year.
Thank you so much Gurdep for helping me. I really appreciate it.

Gurdeep is a fantastic tutor. She took the time and effort to pinpoint my weaker and stronger areas in the subject and was quick to make a plan in order to help me achieve my target. Whilst I did not have too long with her she made sure to push me every lesson and keep me up to date with any marking etc. She is really easy to get along with and made Economics more interesting for me. She helped me achieve my target and get into the university of my choice. I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for an Economics Tutor.

Miss Gurdep is a lovely person. She is teaching my son, she is very patient and, as my son says, she has a very good method of teaching. I will give more feedback once the tutoring will be over and the exam taken!
