What kind of experience do you have?
I started tutoring in 2005 under the umbrella of a two year contract with The Guardian and a three year contract with Oliver Wyman to offer in-company training. Others contracts followed with WPP Group Plc, Gaucho, Momentum Pictures, Gefco, Freggo, MTS Group Italy, Hudsons Properties, etc. The lessons were delivered in different formats: intensive and extensive courses, full day study sessions, small groups and one on one lessons.

In terms of primary, secondary and university levels, my experience includes preparing students attending: Imperial College, Westminster University, University College London, Highbury School, Wimbledon High School, Wimbledon College, City of London School for Girls, Putney High School, Wycombe Abbey School, St Bede's School, Queen Ethelburga's College, and many others.

In total, I have been a tutor for 7 years plus two at university level teaching Theories of Communication in the faculty of Social Sciences and two at secondary school level (this was a class of 25 students who were 17 years old when I was 18).
How much do you charge?
One to one: £50 per hour in Russell Square. If in another location minimum class time is 1.5 hours.
Groups or in-company training: full day courses are £50 per hour plus £12 per delegate per lesson.

I'll send you an invoice before the first lesson that you can pay in advance by bank transfer. After that, I'll send a monthly invoice for you to pay in the same way.
Tell me about some of your current students.
My clients include web designers improving their web development skills, undergraduate students on web development degrees, entrepreneurs developing their websites, digital marketers learning to code emails or assessing their websites and kids from Australia having a full day learning session in London while their parents are in a conference in Europe during a holiday trip. I have had students of all ages, from all over the world from Japan and Russia to Turkey and the US and I always meet very interesting, friendly and motivated people.
Do you have a personal message for students?
The learning experience is very visual, practical, topic and project based. Every subject has its methods and in the case of Computer Science, the emphasis is on problem solving and algorithm design in an unplugged context, to then translate this almost literally into code and gradually recreate it to offer more advanced solutions. It’s not about the grammar of the programming language - that's easy-, it's learning to think to design functions in a programme that flow like a story.

All the courses make use of innovative methods that enormously facilitate learning, to guarantee optimum progress at the same time that makes the lessons very enjoyable, using materials that are meaningful, relevant and connect to you personally.

I can empathise very well with students at all levels and lessons are always fine tuned to their motivations and goals. I love working with people and I’ve found this work very enriching.
