My Tutoring & Teaching Experience
Since graduating I have become a full time tutor, working with several agencies, and consequentially am both experienced and confident in my ability to help my students achieve their goals. I additionally have extensive experience working with young persons with learning difficulties and various disorders from volunteering in Sri Lanka for 3 months and working at a psychiatric rehabilitation unit in Hertfordshire. While volunteering in Sri Lanka I was a Peer Mentor, meaning I was responsible for the pastoral care of a rotating group of volunteers. I have loved each of these roles and working with people at many different levels.
My Approach to Tutoring
My past tutoring experience and highly academic background mean that I am very assured in my capabilities to tutor at all levels. I pride myself on my professionalism and take time to prepare lessons that are both stimulating and thorough. Focusing first on any weak spots, I work with my students to fill any gaps in their knowledge and deepen their understanding. I believe my building confidence I can help each of my students to realise their unique potential and flair.
Working directly from the syllabus, I ensure that a thorough grasp of the curriculum is achieved while also improving exam technique using past papers and mark scheme prep. Through the tutorial systemat Oxford University, I have experienced first-hand the progress achieved by working one-on-one with a tutor. By learning to discuss a topic in depth, rather than memorise information, I help my students feel confident tackling the same material presented in different ways.
I love working with my students and watching them become more self-assured over time. This progression gives me immense satisfaction and I am committed to always being approachable, flexible and ready to listen to any concerns. I am dedicated not only to preparing my students for their examinations but to ensure they enjoy it too, as I believe this is instrumental to their success
Fun Facts About Me
I am very motivated to pursue a career in helping others. While tutoring offers a brilliant way for me to do this, I additionally have extensive volunteering experience in other areas.
I have previously worked with Age Concern UK for 9 months, Help Refugees in Calais for 1 month and SLV.Global in Sri Lanka for 3 months. I also love music and play the piano, guitar and completed by Grade 8 Music Theatre in singing while at school.
My favourite thing to do is spend time outdoors and I have trekked across the Dolomites in Italy with my best friend and sailed competitively on a J109 yacht for the past 5 years.

Camille Goodman – Private Tutor in Central London
I graduated from Oriel College, Oxford in July 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature. Throughout my school career I have balanced academic life with competitive tennis as a government funded, semi-professional player. This required huge drive and efficiency, for which I was rewarded with a stellar set of results at both GCSE and A-Level and a place at Oxford. Before starting my degree, I began tutoring part-time and have since helped children of a range of ages and abilities achieve similar academic excellence. I specialise in entrance to the UK's top schools, and have tutored students towards 7+, 8+, 11+ and Common Entrance to Westminster, St. Paul's and King's College to name a few. I am also interested in preparing students for Oxbridge entrance, and look to develop a student's passion for subjects beyond the syllabus not only immediately preceding their application, but in the years prior. I wish to help as many students as possible reach their desired academic goals and hugely enjoy transferring my own knowledge to my young protégées. ...

I have a particular interest in entrance into the UK's top schools and Universities, teaching 11 plus, Common Entrance, and preparing students for Oxbridge. I am aided by a detailed understanding of UK independent schools as well as experience preparing for the American education system at ISEE and SSAT level in particular. I have delivered private tuition to children between 5 and 20 years. I find tutoring immensely rewarding and particularly enjoy the focused nature of assisting an individual with their academic goals. ...
Isabel Ruthven – Professional Teacher in South London
I graduated from Durham University in 2012 with a degree in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biology and Psychology. Shortly after graduating, I moved to London to begin work as a Medical Writer. This involved writing a variety of medical papers for the pharmaceutical industry for new, or developing, medical drugs.
In 2015 I made the change into teaching. I undertook my teaching degree at Goldsmith's University and specialised in Secondary Science. I am now a professional Science teacher based in South East London, teaching pupils aged 11-18 Chemistry, Biology and Physics to GCSE and Biology A-level. I am an enthusiastic and committed teacher and am passionate about helping young people to understand and enjoy science. I encourage pupils to think on their own, scaffolding their learning and slowly taking away training wheels so they have the confidence and self-belief to make progress on their own. Tutoring allows me to have for the 1-1 teaching contact that young people so often need in order to reach their potential. ...
Helena Wells – Private Tutor in London
Prior to studying a degree in Anthropology at Cambridge (BA Hons 2:1), I went to Oakham School where I studied an eclectic mix of A-levels (History, Geography, Biology and Fine Art), and achieved top grades in all four subjects. This range of subjects, and the degree that followed, reflect my interest in people and why we behave as we do. Indeed I am continuing to pursue this interest, and am currently studying an MSc in Psychology at the University of Surrey.
Before studying at Surrey, I worked in the advertising industry (J Walter Thompson) and for a behavioural consultancy as a Project Manager. Whilst on the graduate scheme at J Walter Thompson, I won the Chrissie Barker award for Top Graduate in my year, achieved a Distinction in my IPA (Institute for Practitioners of Advertising) Foundation Award, and completed the IPA Effectiveness, and Legislation and Regulation awards. I also spent a month working and travelling in Japan, which was utterly fascinating.
Throughout my professional career I built a reputation as someone people turned to for support and I enjoyed helping develop new starters. I also have a wealth of insight when it comes to CV’s, personal statements and interview techniques – all of which are front of mind for me having just applied to university again myself. ...
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. ...

Throughout the years, I have worked with students on a wide range of curriculums to hone their skills and expand not only their knowledge, but also their interest and love for the subject. Having won a bursary to attend Wellington College in 2011, I studied the IB, and was one of the very few students in the world to achieve a maximum of 45 points. Some of the distinctions I was awarded for my academic performances include the Gavin Ewart Poetry Prize, the Verrall English Prize, the Music Essay Prize, and the Lady Emma Talbot Special Prize. I went on to earn a place at Oxford University where I read BA Honours in English Language and Literature. Following my Distinction in Prelims, I was awarded the Casberd Scholarship for outstanding results. ...

Fenella Chesterfield – Professional Teacher in London and Cambridge
I am a home-schooling specialist and trained teacher, with a Cambridge first-class degree and experience working at a top UK boarding school. Having taught classes of students of wide-ranging abilities, I am aware of the importance of catering for the specific needs of individuals; this is what primarily draws me to tutoring. There is nothing more satisfying than having the time to sit and work through the challenges that a particular student is facing, one-to-one. As a teacher, I know the value that this can add to both their achievement and also their enjoyment of schoolwork. So often seemingly overwhelming problems are born of a simple misunderstanding which can be quickly ironed out within individual tutor time, and I thoroughly enjoy getting to know the individual learning styles and interests of my students. ...
