Academic Tutor in London
Carolina Sawney MSc
I am a professional academic tutor with 8,000 hours teaching in one on one and small group settings offering courses in different formats at different levels to students from two years old onwards, including professional and in-company classes for employees sponsored by their companies, including The Guardian.
Recently one of my students studying Bioinformatics at Imperial College said: “It’s not easy to find someone who is multi-talented who is prepared to teach what they know and so well”, after completing an intensive three day course on web development.
I aim to motivate students to broaden their curiosity and critical thinking in classes planned to enable them to solve problems, explore, experiment, dialogue, reflect, practice and apply skills creatively for deep learning.
The materials are developed according to the latest research in what works best and also advances in Educational Psychology and Neuroscience to greatly enhance the learning experience in a blend that allows students to progress at their optimum pace.
My interests combine communication, education, philosophy and astronomy and I consider that this gives me a rich perspective that allows me to ask the right questions to motivate students in their learning and encourage their sense of wonder and curiosity required for a true education.
Communication, education and writing as well as working face to face with people to engage them and inspire them to discover and develop potentials have always been paramount to my vocation. Teaching is one of my natural talents, as I spontaneously began to explain my classmates Maths for A Level exams.
The classes I offer are student centered, task and topic based and use a variety of innovative learning methods, that make the sessions motivating, to maximise practise and guarantee optimum progress, that is faster than in other classrooms.
I hold an enhanced DBS which is updated every year.
