Elizabeth Bamber - Private Tutor in London
I have always been dedicated to success. In 2015, I graduated from the University of Cambridge with first-class honours in Natural Sciences, and was awarded a number of prestigious prizes for my performance. I then went on to study Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, and was awarded a Distinction for my MSc. More recently, I have moved to London to study law, and will begin my training to be a solicitor in 2018.
During my law studies, I am hoping to fill my free time with tutoring, a pursuit that I really enjoy. Over the past few years I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring, and have loved seeing my pupils become more confident and learn to enjoy their studies. I have also taken part in pro bono tutoring, helping to give less privileged students the same opportunities as those who are more fortunate, and acting as a mentor through their school careers.

I have a broad experience of tutoring acquired over the past five years, with my pupils ranging from primary school age to university applicants. I have taught individuals and small groups of students in subjects including Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, English, and Oxbridge applications. All of my students have demonstrated strong improvements in their academic performance. In addition to the UK system, I have a strong understanding of US applications and have completed a number of courses on the SAT, ACT, ISEE and SSAT to enhance my tutoring skills.
My Approach to Tutoring
I strongly believe that building the enjoyment of a subject is the best way to foster motivation and interest within all students, regardless of ability. This then leads to an organic, long-term improvement in performance. Reducing a seemingly impossible problem to simple steps is one way to do this - the student realises that they have the ability to solve the problem, and the confidence boost from this realisation is invaluable.
With strong students, I would challenge them to question what they learn and go beyond the syllabus, so that they are able to gain those top few marks in their examinations. With weaker students, I would focus on building a solid foundation of skills and logical thinking, moving on to more technical elements once their confidence in their abilities has increased. However, despite my approach differing to suit individuals, the dedication with which I teach remains the same for all of my students.
