BIOGRAPHY & INTERESTS
In my spare time, I enjoy making the most of London’s cultural scene. Whether it by visiting the city’s world-class museums and art exhibitions, going to the theatre, trying new cuisines or visiting different boroughs. I also spend time reading 20th Century classics, researching the latest sustainable social businesses around the world and listening to live music.
I have lived on three continents and four countries (the UK, Canada, Argentina and Switzerland) and I sustain an interest for travelling and learning languages. I am currently learning Portuguese at the LSE and hope to travel back to Brazil to research the expansion of their informal settlements.
EXPERIENCE & APPROACH
As a mentor, what I value the most is partaking in students’ development. I have witnessed my students’ achievements, not only in terms of grades, but also in self-confidence, communication skills and improved critical thinking. Through personalised lesson planning, I tailor the mentoring sessions to students’ requirements to ensure they follow an achievable academic timeline, in line with their curriculum and goals. I try to make classes as enjoyable as possible by offering varied teaching styles, through games, debate and challenges.
I believe that academic success works best when coupled with a sustained desire to learn. As such, as a mentor I aim to illustrate the competences and skills students aspire to, such as leadership, commitment, organisation, analytical and critical thinking, curiosity and personal growth. I wish to provide a friendly and valuable service to my students by inspiring confidence and friendship.
