Chris B

Experienced Enthusiastic Tutor

£40.00-60.00Academic tutor

I know that engaging a tutor can be nerve-wracking. From embarking on a search, to the first session, to exam dates, it can be a fraught experience. But I have the experience and the sensitivity to make this experience smooth, engaging and even enjoyable. I have a wealth of experience, tutoring for almost 5 years, since leaving Cambridge University with a degree in History of Art. My greatest skill lies in being able to put both students and parents at ease, through a combination of engaging activities, pitched at a comfortably challenging level, and delivered with confidence. This is partly helped by the fact that I act and direct alongside my tutoring. I can transform your framework of learning to make objectives manageable and tailored, and to find ways of helping you shape and realise your own ambitions. Using a combination of tested methods of increasing engagement and a constant process of adapting my style to each student, I have achieved remarkable successes with my students. This success includes academic achievements, but I am most proud of the consistency with which I have fostered passion and confidence in the subjects we study together. I love new people, new perspectives and new ways of working, and I look forward to meeting you!

Rute C

Experienced Online English, Drama & Portuguese Tutor

£25.00-40.00Academic tutor

I'm an experienced and enthusiastic English and Drama tutor, with a great passion for helping my students thrive. I graduated with an English degree from the University of Cambridge, and I have just completed Masters in Advanced Theatre Practice at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I have expert knowledge in both subjects and I'm extremely enthusiastic about sharing it. I began tutoring prior to my graduation from Cambridge, and since then I have encountered a variety of students with diverse needs and backgrounds. I go to great lengths to ensure I tailor each tutorial to the student's needs and that adequate study materials are shared in advance of every lesson. I am a believer that lessons should be engaging and fun, as well as rigorous. I work to both challenge my tutees and help them feel more confident in their abilities. I guide them towards being able to achieve top quality in their independent work. Complementary to tutoring, I have experience as a house manager and activities organiser in summer schools that teach English as a foreign language. I am an accomplished drama workshop leader and enjoy teaching performing arts. I am a writer and theatre director.
