About me

Hi, I'm Vicki, a French and Russian student at the University of Bath. I choose Bath as unlike other institutions it focused more on the socio-political climate, and thus was less old fashioned.

In my Alevels, I received A*A*A, as well as an A in the EPQ. Throughout my Alevels, I took part in a mentoring scheme for English language/ literature, with underacheiving year 7/8 students. Also, I have given tuition for French with students in my local area, which was independent from scho...

Hi, I'm Vicki, a French and Russian student at the University of Bath. I choose Bath as unlike other institutions it focused more on the socio-political climate, and thus was less old fashioned.

In my Alevels, I received A*A*A, as well as an A in the EPQ. Throughout my Alevels, I took part in a mentoring scheme for English language/ literature, with underacheiving year 7/8 students. Also, I have given tuition for French with students in my local area, which was independent from school.

In addition, I have volunteered at a local guide unit for nearly 6 years, which has given me a lot of experiencee working with individuals on areas of concern, encouraging them in such times. Not only did I volunteer at Guides, but also St. John's Ambulance, for 3 years. Therefore I have a lot of experience with a variety of situations, whereby patient guidance is important.

Personally, I believe I have a very good approach to learning.I like to use a variety of techniques and often involve interactive activities and colourful revision, which I use in my tutorials to provide an easy way for tutees to memorise important information. With regards to how I will run the sessions, please see below, it will of course vary according to your learning techniques and the content etc which you would like to cover. Do not hesitate to be in touch, I am always happy to arrange free meetings.

About my sessions

I will look at subjects prior to the lesson and prepare task sheets and information sheets to go through. Often I will get up previous past papers to work through activities, especially for French tuition and also skills papers for Geography. With French I will put an emphasis on grammar and translation when doing reading activities, so as to consolidate. With Religious Studies, I will focus on relevant content, key words and examples and then plan essays, where necessary we will look at exam...

I will look at subjects prior to the lesson and prepare task sheets and information sheets to go through. Often I will get up previous past papers to work through activities, especially for French tuition and also skills papers for Geography. With French I will put an emphasis on grammar and translation when doing reading activities, so as to consolidate. With Religious Studies, I will focus on relevant content, key words and examples and then plan essays, where necessary we will look at exam technique, in all cases, to produce perfect answers. This is something which is underrated in tuition experience, but can really make the difference between grades. In addition I often provide powerpoints which are useful revision tools which we can work through together, some of these will include activities to make the session more engaging. I will always send you the sources and tools I use after the lesson in order to aid your revision. Again, any questions just drop me a mail!

Victoria has been a wonderful support to my son in his a levels for RS and History and nothing was too much trouble. Victoria went over and above what was asked of her and we could not have been without her. Victoria’s knowledge and patience has been superb, she also worked with me as a parent to plan our lessons, explain and reassure me. She also was very good at working alongside my son as he is bright but has dyslexia, her use of learning styles and imaginative approach was so appreciated. I can’t recommend her enough.
