I have undertaken a range of teaching roles over the past four years, having tutored extensively on an individual basis and having worked as a classroom teacher both in the UK and in France. I specialise in tutoring Latin, English Literature, English Language, French, and Law.
Over the past 3 years I have tutored multiple students for 11+ and 13+. I have prepared students for entry into such schools as Dulwich College, Bedford School, Godolphin, and St Paul's.
I studied at Bedford School from 2007-2012, obtaining 1 A* and 3 As at A Level in Latin, English, French and Classical Civilisation respectively. I then studied at University College London. I graduated with a BA Classics (First Class Honours), winning the Otto Skutsch Prize for Latin. I then obtained a Graduate Diploma in Law (Distinction) from City Law School. I have just completed the Bar Professional Training Course and will commence training as a barrister in September 2018.
While studying for my undergraduate degree I qualified as an English as a Foreign Language Teacher, obtaining a CertTESOL (Distinction) from Trinity College London.
Having studied French at A Level, I continue to speak to a near-fluent level.
I have a dynamic approach to tutoring that caters to the needs of each student. I begin by discussing and setting clear goals. Then I establish what the most efficient method of achieving those goals are and what style of teaching will benefit the student most.
Though some tutors lecture their students, my lessons tend to be highly interactive - the more active a student's mind, the better they retain the material. I often use questions to check the student's understanding and to encourage him or her to think creatively about the material.
A consistent feature of my lessons is my use of past papers and examiners' reports. These often neglected resources are gold dust in preparing students for relevant exams.
What I do when I am not tutoring
In 2017-2018 I will be studying for an LLM. This allows me a flexible timetable. I am typically free on weekday afternoons and all day on weekends.
In my spare time I take part in debating and play tennis.
''Just wanted to say [X] has done very well in French considering. Last term he got 39% in his results. This term he got 65% so amazing progress...his French teacher is very impressed.'' (Mother of 13+ French student after 3 lessons)
''Ravi is an excellent law tutor, he has a really positive and engaging attitude and is comfortable explaining hard to grasp concepts in a clear manner. He is lovely to work with and highly academic so I have the utmost confidence recommending him.'' (GDL student)
