Biography & Interests
Born in Northumberland, I’ve lived most of my life either in Paris or London, with an Italian mother. Thanks to this I can speak three languages and know the cultures of the UK, France and Italy well. I’m a keen actor, having acted in and directed several plays at Oxford. Though I don’t play anymore, I can read music and have basic piano skills. Visual art – especially painting – is one of my passions; fortunately, since moving to London, I’ve been able to spend a significant amount of time in the city’s museums. Sports-wise, I love anything with a racquet involved (squash, tennis, badminton) and also run quite a bit (cross-country and road).
Experience & Approach
I have tutored as a freelance mentor and tutor for the past two years. Most of my tutees have been Oxbridge candidates or A Level/GCSE students but I have also taught maths and English to children from six years old up to 11+. I have experience teaching pre-tests at 11+, with particular emphasis on the Harrow Test. I always try to approach tutees as affably as possible. This means getting to know their interests and stories, likes and dislikes. Making the work as hassle-free as possible is also important. To this end, I always make sure tutees have easy access to any material they might need to read in their own time, and present work in a clear and concise manner.
