Biography & Interests
I work as a journalist at the Financial Times, and do freelance work for other publications such as the Economist and the TLS.
My main loves are reading and writing, which I do voraciously non-stop! I also play sport, and exercise regularly through yoga, running and swimming. I love attending the theatre, art galleries, going to concerts and talks, and have a particular passion for just wandering around London, which still amazes me with its secret delights, even after living here for 23 years!
Experience & Approach
I have been mentoring formally since I was 18, and informally to family friends and relatives many years beforehand. Unlike in a classroom (I have previously taught English through TEFL qualifications), I am able to develop a personal relationship with clients and use this to teach and mentor them with the utmost efficacy that is suited exactly to their needs. Mentoring can do wonders for a child as they feel that they have specialist knowledge in their chosen subjects - whether this be from homework help to intensive groundwork filling gaps in their learning history.
"Antonia was a joy. Personable, passionate and dedicated to helping A with her invaluable expertise. I am sure she has given him the best shot at the pretests and we would love to have her back ahead of his interviews" Parent of 11-year-old boy, October 2018
