My Tutoring & Teaching Experience
I began teaching when I was 15 where I started a drama club at my local Persian language school. I would write plays in both English and Farsi and create games and ice-breakers for the younger students to become comfortable performing on stage. Since graduating from University, I have helped friends who are studying the ACCA and CFA with their basic mathematics knowledge, and have over 200 hours of secondary school maths tuition experience.
My Approach to Tutoring
My approach to tutoring has always been to focus on improving confidence. I have worked with students who struggle with a subject, and I have found that the majority of the time this is due to lack of self confidence rather than ability. I believe that only if you have the right level of self belief are you able to achieve your best and truly enjoy learning the subject you are studying.
I always have a good rapport with my students in order to understand their strengths, weaknesses and interests in order to teach them in the most effective way. Our lessons are always fun, productive and efficient.
Fun Facts About Me
I am writing a comedy-drama screenplay and pre-lockdown I was an improvisation and stand up comedian. My favourite gig was at The Comedy Pub in Central London - people actually laughed! I also had a podcast and radio show at Northwick Park Hospital for 3 years.
Aside from this, I am learning Spanish and read at least one novel a week.
My Client Testimonials
"I have known Ladan since August 2019. She started tutoring my daughter who is in year 10. Since, Ladan started teaching her, my daughter’s confidence in maths have grown leaps and bounds and she is doing very well in her class. Ladan is very professional and personable. My daughter really likes her and has a very good rapport with her. She makes learning easy and fun. After every lesson, Ladan sends me a feedback which is very constructive and helpful. She is a wonderful teacher, who has a real ability of dealing with children. We have had to sometimes reschedule lessons and Ladan has been very flexible and most of the time, she has accommodated our requests. I highly recommend her to anyone."
"Ladan Sadjadi has been my daughter’s GCSE maths tutor in throughout Year 11. My daughter has always struggled with maths and we had used tutors before, without really making any difference to her confidence or her results. Ladan immediately established a rapport with my daughter and very quickly her belief in her own ability began to improve, and consequently her test results were much better than they ever had been. Ladan taught my daughter on line via Skype twice a week, kept her engaged and interested and was always very reliable, giving us plenty of notice if lessons needed to be re scheduled and being flexible when we had other commitments. I highly recommend Ladan and she made a real difference to my daughter in her study of Maths."

I was educated at Millfield School, where I received an academic scholarship. I achieved an A* in my Economics A Level, obtaining full marks in my exams in the second year. I became passionate about Economics and Politics at school and subsequently attended Newcastle University where I studied these subjects. I am from a family of teachers and tutors and have wide range of teaching experiences. I started teaching when I was selected to support low level GCSE Maths when I was studying for my A-Levels at school. It was from watching these pupils progress that my passion for teaching and tutoring was ignited.

I am a positive and energetic person and I like to inspire and enthuse my students with positive praise. ...
Lily Burnand – Private Tutor in North London
I've been tutoring and working with children part time since I finished school in 2014, and have graduated from Oxford University, where I studied English literature. Before that, I took IB at Wellington College, in which I scored 43 out of a possible 45 points. I've tutored in London, Oxford and Hong Kong, worked as a nanny, and set up and continue to run a school sponsorship program in Nepal, which provides disadvantaged children with the opportunity to be educated in Kathmandu. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects of tutoring is helping students gain confidence in something they thought they would never understand, or felt they weren't good at, turning a daunting task into something enjoyable. I've worked with children who range from 3 to 23 years old, but have most experience with Common Entrance at 11+ and 13+. The breath of the IB course means that I'm able to teach a range of subjects to a high standard, and have great experience balancing academic work with other areas of life, as well as finding important overlaps between diverse subjects and interests. ...

Emily Hennah – Private Tutor in Central London
I’m a postgraduate medical student at King’s College London and Bristol University graduate with a passion for a wide range of subjects.

I'm an enthusiastic tutor; effective tutoring raises children’s confidence and gives them skills which they can take far beyond our sessions, which is my favourite aspect of the job. ...
