About Me: Hello students, hello parents, My name's Stella. I'm a Psychology student at the University of Edinburgh. I am truly passionate about my field of study and the other humanities subjects that I tutor - namely English, French and Philosophy. I hope to share that passion with you! I am a great believer in each individual's personal capacity for improvement. No matter what your starting level, with the right guidance and a certain amount of effort on your part, you can achieve your academic goals. I am really interested in studies about how our mindset can affect our academic achievements - particularly the work of Dr. Carol Dweck from Stanford University, which you can read more about here: https://www.mindsetworks.com/webnav/whatismindset.aspx. I am patient and friendly. I have over ten years experience teaching children and teenagers English as a second language. Having lived in France for seven years, I am a fluent French speaker (Level C1 or "advanced" on the TEF Certification - see level guide here: http://swissfrenchschool.ch/wp-content/assets/images/scale.gif). I am committed to delivering the very best tutoring possible.

About my sessions

During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. I will use as many different ways (diagrams, words, analogies) as possible to explain a psychological or philosophical concept, until you are confident enough that you can explain it to me. For those of you who are studying English or French, I am able to help with whatever domain of your studies that you need help with - be it speaking, comprehension or writing. I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in 55mins especially if i...

During the sessions, you will guide what we cover. I will use as many different ways (diagrams, words, analogies) as possible to explain a psychological or philosophical concept, until you are confident enough that you can explain it to me. For those of you who are studying English or French, I am able to help with whatever domain of your studies that you need help with - be it speaking, comprehension or writing. I hope the sessions will be fun! A lot can be achieved in 55mins especially if it is made enjoyable. I also like to make online flashcards for my students, to make their revision process that little bit easier (don't hesitate to message me if you would like to see a sample set of online flashcards). I'm applying for university admission.. Can you help me?! Yes! I have been through the admissions process and am aware that it can be quite stressful. It is important that the university admissions department(s) sense your passion, ability and drive through your words. I can help you with both the content and structure of your personal statement through brainstorming, planning, writing and revising. What next? If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you're struggling with. I look forward to meeting you!

Very patient and structured. She varied the pace just right for my 13-year-old son. She is passionate about her subject. Her dedication to making a real difference to her tutee's learning comes through in her sincerity. Would come to her again and certainly would recommend!
