About Me

*Currently, due to the pandemic, I am only conducting online tutoring sessions*

I am a highly experienced academic tutor with numerous years of active experience tutoring children, teenagers and university students. Over the course of several years, I have tutored over 60 students one-to-one with each of them showing significant progress, as well as, thoroughly enjoying the lessons.

I’m an American student studying Psychology at University in London. Being a Psychology student, has enabled me to gain an understanding of children's varying learning styles, and how to mould my teaching strategies to best suit each individual child's strengths and style. Throughout my educational career I have obtained top A+ grades, and plan to attend medical school in the future. I am very academic-orientated, and hold education as a top priority.

Hence, why I am an official Maths and Writing tutor for University students, but I have also tutored countless students at primary, middle and high school level. I am extremely familiar with KS1, KS2, and KS3 curriculum/syllabus. Whether you require assistance alongside homeschooling, "target tutoring" to strengthen your child's weaker areas or someone to work through your child's schoolwork with them, I can definitely help! I specialise in Maths, English, Reading and Writing tutoring, however, provided the appropriate materials and syllabus I can successfully tutor in any subject. Through Childcare.co.uk I hope to find more amazing students to tutor and academically advance! Please get in touch ASAP if you're interested or have any further questions!

My Experience

With over four years experience, I have privately tutored numerous students in the past. I am currently online tutoring (via Zoom) over 20 students aged 3 to 15 years old. My tutees have shown significant improvement in their grades. One of my most recent tutees, went from achieving F grades to B+ grades within a matter of weeks. Although, online tutoring is deemed an 'untraditional' method of tutoring, I personally think it renders much, if not more, academic improvement than face-to-face sessions! It also eliminates the hassle associated with travel time and costs, and allows your child to learn in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. It is also safer for both parties, as you are not allowing a stranger into your home and I do not have enter strange homes. All subjects can be taught via online tutoring, including handwriting and speech! I aim to make my tutoring sessions as interactive and enjoyable as possible, to ensure my tutees are engaged the entire time; this includes, the use of various colours when illustrating on my online whiteboard, playing relevant educational games at the end of every session and incorporating creative aspects into the sessions (art projects, journaling, fictional writing, posters, etc...).

In terms of lesson plan, I create individual, personalised schedules for each of my tutees. I do much preparation/planning prior to each session, which requires great time and effort. This ensures they are progressing in the "target areas" and are on track. Therefore, my lesson plans are all completely unique and geared towards each individual student; this allows for maximum success. You can provide me with schoolwork to work through with your child, or I can find/create Year-appropriate curriculum (worksheets, activities). Either way, your child will further their learnings.

I also have extensive experience with Special Needs (SEN) children; these include, Autism, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and Fragile-X.

Prior to the Coronavirus situation, I was an after-school tutor for four children aged 4 to 12 for almost seven months; I would help them complete their homework, explain concepts to them and do additional practice problems to solidify their learnings. I have the most tutoring experience with primary-aged children and middle school students. However, I have also privately tutored 16 students at University level, with each of them achieving at least a B+ in their final exams.

In terms of non-academic tutoring, I have undertaken a Chefs course at West London University and run an online baking business/social media account. Having taken numerous courses, I am very experienced in baking and possess many "tricks of the trade", therefore, I am confident in providing baking and cooking lessons.

Serena was taking my 6 year old twice a week during the summer. I was concerned about online/ virtual teaching but she is amazing and goes through a wide range of activities to keep him engaged and interested. His handwriting which was our main focus has improved. She was nice and calm but firm.

Even as school resumes, I look forward to working with her going forward and would recommend her for any parent looking for a tutor for their kid(s)

Serena was teaching our two children (Year 1 and Year 3) via Zoom while they were not in school due to the lockdown. Serena was always well prepared for the lessons with a range of activities tailored to each child. She was happy to follow the school programme and concentrate on what I thought was important for each child. Serena is very professional, calm and friendly. She engages well with children and has a positive attitude. I would definitely recommend her and would use her services again in the future.
Thank you for your great work, Serena!
