Karina is a creative and friendly tutor with over eight years of teaching experience.
She has a PhD in 20th century literature from UCL, and a masters degree from Clare College Cambridge. She did her undergraduate degree in Ireland at Trinity College Dublin. Before she did her undergraduate degree in English, she studied Art at Central St Martin’s College of Art and Design. She is currently turning her thesis into her first book.
She has helped dozens of students pass their 10+, 11+ and 13+, and her previous pupils have gained entry into Haberdasher’s, Emanuel School and Cheltenham Ladies College. She has also successfully tutored students in GCSE English Literature and Language, and A Level English Literature. She has also taught at undergraduate and post-graduate level. She can offer proofreading, interview preparation and assistance with personal statements.
Karina enjoys teaching students of all ages and abilities, and is happy to adapt her style and approach to suit her students’ needs. She always builds her lessons around the demands of a particular exam or board, and never relies on a generic formula.
Her hobbies are painting, reading and writing.
