    Cambridge BA 2022UCL MSc 2024Offer from CambridgeOffer from ImperialOffer from DurhamOffer from UCLA*A*A*A* at A-Level11 A*s at GCSE

    Hi, I’m Fran! I am a postgraduate student at UCL, studying for MSc Science Technology and Society, which I hope to finish in 2024. In 2022, I graduated with a BA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, where I specialised in Materials Science in my final year. I’m super passionate about science, and love science communication and policy-making. In my spare time, I enjoy rock-climbing, reading, board games, and music.
    I have been tutoring privately for around 4 years now, and I love it! I enjoy spreading my passion for science and love discussing new and interesting topics and issues in science with my students. I think it’s really important to engage children and young people with science, to encourage the next generation of medics, mathematicians, scientists, and engineers.

    Hello, my name is Ariana Rubio. I am a recent graduate of the University of Oxford (2023), where I achieved a high 2:1 in English Language & Literature. I scored in the top 10% (55/60) on the ELAT (admissions test for English) and performed well at interview to win a place at Oxford. I am currently teaching English abroad and applying for master’s degrees in English.

    At secondary school, I got 11 A*s at GCSE, including English Literature, English Language, Maths, and Additional Maths. I got an A* in English Literature A-level and D1’s (above the A* equivalent) in History and Philosophy Pre-U’s. I won the Prize for Outstanding Academic Achievement, which is awarded to the top scholar in the year, in Years 11, 12, and 13.

    Alongside maintaining my high academic standards, I have tutored for a number of years. I volunteered as a homework tutor at my local library from 2015-2019, helping students in years 1-11. As an academic mentor at my school, I tutored younger students in English and History from 2017 to 2019.

    I am eager to tutor students in English, History, and Religious Studies/Philosophy at GCSE and A-level. I would especially like to assist aspiring Oxbridge applicants with personal statement, ELAT and interview preparation.

    Hello future students and parents!

    I’m excited to introduce myself as your potential tutor and guide in the world of natural sciences, particularly in the fascinating realm of physics. My name is Arla, and I am a dedicated graduate student who holds both a Master of Science and Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree in Physics from the University of Cambridge, Trinity College. I have a strong academic foundation that I’m eager to share with you.

    My journey in the field of physics began at the prestigious City of London School for Girls, where I achieved 4 A*s in Physics, Mathematics, Further mathematics, and Chemistry. Before this, I completed an Accelerated GCSE course which took place within a year at Ashbourne College in London, securing three 9s and four A* grades, solidifying my commitment to academic excellence.

    But it’s not just about my academic achievements; it’s about my passion for the subject matter. I am deeply enthusiastic about the natural sciences and thrive on exploring complex ideas in depth. My personal journey through academia has allowed me to appreciate the beauty of physics and its role in understanding the world around us. I genuinely believe that science is not just a subject but a way of thinking and problem-solving that can be immensely rewarding.

    One of the key reasons I love teaching is my desire to simplify challenging concepts for other students. I understand that complex ideas can be intimidating, and I am committed to breaking them down into digestible pieces, making them accessible and exciting. My teaching philosophy centers on fostering a deep understanding of the material, rather than rote memorization, so you can grasp the core principles and apply them effectively.

    Learning should be an exhilarating experience, and I am dedicated to making it as engaging and enjoyable as possible. Whether you’re struggling to grasp certain physics concepts or simply looking to deepen your understanding, I am here to guide you on your educational journey. Together, we can unlock the wonders of the natural sciences and help you achieve your academic goals.

    I look forward to the opportunity to work with you or your child and ignite a passion for the sciences that will last a lifetime. Let’s embark on this exciting learning adventure together!

      Straight A*s at GCSE and A-LevelTop 10% in Oxford Preliminary examsFirst Class in final university examsHertford College scholar's award

      Hi there, I’m Caleb! I recently graduated with a First Class in Biology from the University of Oxford, and I have five years of experience in both tutoring and mentoring in various subjects. I’ve tutored both independently and for international agencies, so I’ve worked with students from a wide variety of nationalities, age groups, and educational backgrounds.

      As a results-driven tutor, I work with my students to identify their specific goals and create a personalised teaching plan to achieve them. I ensure that my lessons are both interactive and engaging for the student by tailoring my teaching style to best suit their specific needs. In all lessons, I place a strong focus on encouraging lateral thinking and guiding students to improve their analytical capabilities through problem-based learning.

      My approach produces excellent results, with most of my students improving by at least one grade boundary (GCSE, A-Level), and I’ve helped many to achieve university offers for Medicine and Oxbridge universities. Alongside tutoring, I provide mentoring for competitive university applications, including support with writing personal statements and studying for entrance tests.

      Hi, I’m Alessandro! I studied PPE at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, where I graduated with a 2.1 in July 2022 and achieved the highest mark in the PPE cohort in the Econometrics finals paper. I was also awarded an Open Scholarship for academic excellence in my first year (2020). I recently completed a master’s degree in Econometrics and Mathematical Economics at LSE, graduating with a Distinction and ranking 2nd in my cohort, for which I was jointly awarded the Ely Devons Prize. Prior to university, I was one of 275 out of 86,826 students worldwide to achieve a score of 45 in the International Baccalaureate (HL Maths, Latin and Ancient Greek). I have provided end-to-end support to students applying to Oxford PPE, helping them write their personal statement and prepare for the TSA and interviews, so I am keenly aware of how intimidating the process can be and how it can be simplified. 2 of my students achieved offers to study PPE at Oxford in the latest admissions cycle. I have also worked with students taking IB Maths and participated in teaching community projects for 4 years. In my spare time, I enjoy running and ran the Brighton Marathon in 2022; I am also currently learning Spanish. I am very excited to share my passion for PPE and Maths with students and help them develop their self-confidence, subject knowledge and critical thinking skills so that they can achieve their academic goals. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your academic journey!

          Frequently Asked Questions

          If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for in the FAQs, feel free to contact us!

          What are the Common Entrance Exams?

          Common Entrance is a series of exams often taken by students in Year 6 (age 11) or Year 8 (age 13) in order to obtain admission to selective grammar or independent schools.

          How do I register my child for the Common Entrance?

          For pupils applying to grammar schools, the 11-plus exam is normally free. All private schools require you to fill out a registration form and may charge you a non-refundable registration fee (between £100 and £300). Once you accept the position, they may want a deposit, which will be repaid at the end of your child's first term.

          Registration can begin up to 18 months before your child is scheduled to take the examinations, so it's important to apply early to ensure that registration spots are available.

          How often should you tutor a child?

          We recommend scheduling at least two tutoring sessions per week, with each session lasting between one to two hours, to ensure your child receives the support they need. Our experienced common entrance exams tutors can function as teachers and can work with your child to teach their curriculum and reinforce learning.

          💻Where do the sessions take place?

          You will be able to access all the material, including the live lessons, from the comfort of your own home as the lessons are held virtually.

          💰Do I have to pay for all of the lessons upfront?

          We strive to make our courses as accessible as possible. During your FREE one-off consultation with our experienced common entrance exam tutors, you can discuss individual payment plans with our team.
