About me

Hi! My name is Sofia and I currently study Economics and Maths at the University of Edinburgh. I just recently graduated from the International Baccalaureate in May 2018 with a total of 40 points and a 7 in both Economics and Math, the subjects I am looking to tutor.

Hi! My name is Sofia and I currently study Economics and Maths at the University of Edinburgh. I just recently graduated from the International Baccalaureate in May 2018 with a total of 40 points and a 7 in both Economics and Math, the subjects I am looking to tutor. 


During my IB career I was actually using My Tutor myself in order to improve in one of my subjects. I therefore completely understand what it is like to feel confused and I am ready to help you overcome those doubts and feel comfortable in a subject you might be struggling in or simply would like to improve in! 


Looking forward to hearing from you!

About my sessions

When it comes to tutoring I believe that individuality is important. What works for me might not work for you, therefore, I think scheduling a Free Meeting before starting with any of our lessons will be super important to make sure we are on the same page and can work together.


When studying in IB it is important to value theory just as much as practice. The first step is to make sure that the student is comfortable with each strand of the syllabus, a tool that I will use...

When it comes to tutoring I believe that individuality is important. What works for me might not work for you, therefore, I think scheduling a Free Meeting before starting with any of our lessons will be super important to make sure we are on the same page and can work together.


When studying in IB it is important to value theory just as much as practice. The first step is to make sure that the student is comfortable with each strand of the syllabus, a tool that I will use extensively. In order to achieve this, I will use whatever method tends to be more beneficial for the student, including diagrams, worked examples, explanations as well as summaries. I also have a variety of resources such as notes and flash cards produced by myself that I am willing to share with the student if needed. Once the theory is in place, it's important to be comfortable around how to use that knowledge in an exam situation. I will make extensive use of past papers and question banks to create understanding over the correct way to answer a question in IB, how to apply the knowledge from the syllabus and how to be time effective in exam situations. 


Something I also greatly value in my lessons is the participation of the student, therefore my lessons will never consist of me just talking but you will always have the chance to ask any questions as well as participate to make sure you fully understand the concept discussed!

Sofia was really helpful and organized! She was fully prepared and was able to answer my questions honestly and clearly. She let me tell her if she was going too fast/slow/if anything didn't make sense. I also like how she gives exam/study tips and gives me specifics on how to answer questions in exam-style.

Sofia is a great tutor and is very knowledgeable about what she teaches. She takes her time to make sure that her student understands the concepts before she moves on. She has helped my daughter grasp the material and understand her concepts. Sence she has taken the IB herself, she is fully aware of how to aproach and teach information.
