|Why have you chosen to be a tutor?|
|I enjoy the experience of working with students at their personal level of achievement, rather than teaching to the average within a mixed-ability class which, in my professional opinion, is a huge disservice to all involved.|
The position of “tutor” allows me to be a true educator.
|What are your hobbies?|
|All forms of dance, but most especially ballet. (I am a trained ballet teacher and would love to have been a professional dancer.) Reading. (I regularly miss my stop on the Underground as my nose is stuck in a book.) Art galleries. Travelling. (Travel broadens your mind and opens up new, exciting experiences).|
|To date, what has been your biggest achievement?||The ability to make people happy and to laugh.|
