Hello! I am Olivia, and I have just finished a degree in Human, Social and Political Sciences at Queens' College, Cambridge University, specialising in Politics and International Relations. Next year I will be taking a Masters in International Relations at the LSE, before pursuing a career in this field (NGOs, think tanks, diplomacy etc.). I am originally from Belgium but grew up in the UK so am fluent in English and French. 


I took the International Baccalaureate (IB) in 2015, and have been an IB tutor, and tutor and mentor more broadly, since 2016. I have worked for IB tutoring companies, tutoring in English, History and more general coursework/essay writing both one-to-one online and for revision course classes, including courses in Stockholm and London. Additionally, I have helped multiple students prepare university and Erasmus applications, including most recently helping a student with her Cambridge application and interview. Beyond work with teens and young adults, I have tutored younger children (between the ages of 7 and 10) in both French and English, and have done professional editing/proof-reading work for several companies and individuals.

Olivia has been incredibly efficient and extremely professional, and super friendly at the same time. She gave me really helpful and detailed advice on my written work. She is flexible with timings and responds quickly every time I contacted her. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
