Hello!

My name is Raquel Costa and I am offering tutoring in Psychology, English Lit/Lang and Languages, namely Portuguese, French and Spanish.

I have recently graduated BSc Psychology with a 2:1 and am currently working as a Learning Support Assistant at a secondary school. I achieved excellent grades in my IB and GCSE courses and I am confident that I can help other students do the same. I am Portuguese by nationality and have also studied French and Spanish at length, participating in several international exchanges, mock UN in Geneva and ultimately 6 months on the ERASMUS programme in Paris.

I have a naturally patient and friendly personality, combined with experience of helping students of all levels and abilities at my current job. Being freshly graduated and working with secondary school students on a daily basis, I feel that I am familiar with the curriculum of the subjects that I tutor for. Nevertheless, given an idea of the current areas being studied by a specific pupil I will be happy to do some reading in order to offer more personalised help.

I look forward to hearing from you and can't wait to support you in conquering those exams, assignments or just in feeling more confident in general. See you soon!

About my sessions

Firstly, I love to get a sense of what the student is currently covering in the chosen subject. This allows me to gather any resources I have available and prepare myself to explain concepts in a couple of different ways.

Secondly, I have a chat with the student or parent about the main goals we are aiming to achieve ie. refresh concepts learned in class, prepare for GCSEs, etc. Then, I draw up a rough plan along with the student of the topics we would like to cover in upcoming sessions...

Firstly, I love to get a sense of what the student is currently covering in the chosen subject. This allows me to gather any resources I have available and prepare myself to explain concepts in a couple of different ways.

Secondly, I have a chat with the student or parent about the main goals we are aiming to achieve ie. refresh concepts learned in class, prepare for GCSEs, etc. Then, I draw up a rough plan along with the student of the topics we would like to cover in upcoming sessions. If priorities change, I am happy to alter this plan at any time but having an initial structure to work from will be highly beneficial both for me as a tutor and for the student as we can stay on track, easily identify difficult areas and get a sense of achievement.

In order to ensure progress, we will revisit any topics previously studied, particularly any that have been identified as difficult and test for understanding wither through short questions or having the student explain what they have learned. Revisiting concepts in more than one way is vital for learning and naturally, the teaching will be adapted to the style of learning that is most suited to the student. The ultimate goal is that the student feels confident and happy in their learning and feels comfortable asking any questions that come up throughout.
