Educator and Tutor in London
Carolina Sawney MSc D Psych Astrol
I am an educator and tutor with 12,000 hours of experience who aims to motivate students to broaden their curiosity and critical thinking in classes planned to enable them to solve problems, explore, dialogue and apply skills creatively for deep and meaningful learning.
The materials are developed according to best practices and the latest advances including those in educational psychology and neuroscience to greatly enhance the learning experience in a blend that allows students to progress at their optimum pace.
This approach led me to discover good teaching principles grouped in what is called “Singapore Maths”, applied in countries where students perform very well in international rankings. I have prepared students to gain entrance to top tier schools and to participate in invitation-only after-school clubs and the Maths Olympiads.
I have offered intensive six hour a day courses, extensive academic programmes, small group intensive evening sessions and one on one lessons, some of them sponsored by companies of which the first was The Guardian, others in collaboration with Ivy Education, as an "elite diamond tutor".
It has been very satisfying to teach students with Special Educational Needs and in this capacity collaborate with The Parent Infant Clinic in Hampstead. I have offered homeschooling to children with Dyslexia, ADHD and Autism. I have developed a unique approach to teaching literacy that has worked when previously nothing had.
I am an archetypal cosmologist, with diplomas in psychological astrology and communication sciences and this understanding gives me invaluable insights to understand how to best foster the potential in every student or delegate. I aim to engage and inspire all students to expand their horizons.
Archetypal cosmology combines astronomy with social and new sciences and I bring this innovative and creative approach to my understanding of the subjects I teach, that include maths, languages and literature.
I aim to create rich environments of experiences through tasks that engage students to learn with understanding and enthusiasm.
I hold an enhanced DBS which is updated every year.
