I am an International Private Tutor and English and Common Entrance Specialist. I have been tutoring for 10 years and has helped students in Russia, Monaco, Dubai, Hong Kong and Great Britain. I specialise in English, Sociology and Common Entrance and my students have gained prestigious places at schools such as Harrow, Cheltenham ladies college, Wykeham Abbey, and Kings College School. Older students have achieved their target Universities or have simply had their grades significantly boosted by my teaching, (see testimonials below.)
I recently wrote and launched my own highly successful and bespoke 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance programme at Arch, Hong Kong, where I was a full-time Common Entrance specialist and Educational Consultant. I am now living in London where offer online tutoring.
I have a CELTA certificate from Cambridge University, a Bsc (Hons) degree from the London School of Economics, and an MA from the University of the Arts, London. I have recently completed a teaching course at the prestigious DCL (Central St Martins, London) in order to teach Acting and the Yat-Malmgren method practiced by the likes of Sir Anthony Hopkins. I therefore offer acting and drama coaching, LAMDA exams preparation, as well as Interview and audition technique.
