I have 10+ years of experience in 4 different countries tutoring both children and adults from all walks of life, at all levels, with and without disabilities.
My specialist subjects are English and History. I also teach French, Maths, Philosophy and exam preparation technique.
I am a French/English bilingual graduate with an upper class degree from the Courtauld Institute of Art, international exposure and extensive teaching/tutoring experience. I enjoy traveling the world, mentoring and inspiring young and more mature minds and the pursuit of my own further education during my spare time via targeted reading and online courses.
I thrive in cultural exposure, discovering new countries and the ability to reach out and find common ground with individuals from all walks of life in the most unexpected circumstances. I am well presented and impeccably mannered with a very calm demeanor during teaching sessions. Outside the classroom, I love a good laugh and lead a rich and active life-style. I enjoy taking my tutees on cultural trips, sharing sporting activities and providing sensible personal and career advice where needed.
I believe in both the practice of discipline (yet creative in its exercises) inside the classroom and taking the subject outside the classroom to show how school lessons relate to the real world. My aim as a teacher is to impart, nurture and grow a passion for learning and the desire to strive for excellence. I believe that, no matter the age, those are the two keys to building a well-rounded, successful and independent person.

Hobbies and Interests
I am very curious by nature and explore as much as possible. I love traveling, trekking, fashion, fine wine and dining and enjoy nothing more than wrapping up all of the above by getting completely lost in a random city or country - so far, Iceland, Bangladesh, Ghana and Transylvania - Preferably with a book on game theory or behavioral economics. If I stay home, I might read the papers, write, go swimming or practice a little martial arts. I should also definitely get back into chess.
