I'd like to offer the knowledge and experience I gained from completing the IB, as well as my past 3 years of being a tutor, to provide the best service I can. Everything from subject content to prioritising study time, refining IA topics and practising language oral responses, I want to help my students improve and develop their skills. The IB definitely can be stressful and challenging, so providing support in addition to working on the academic side of things is also something I think is invaluable in helping students to reach their goals.

I try to teach in a concise and clear way - I find making detailed notes, along with other study techniques which I discuss individually with each student, is where students will work out their most effective and individualised approaches to learning and studying. Whilst IB is my area of speciality, I also offer tutoring for all high school aged students, particularly in English and the humanities, with a similar focus on skill development and time management.
