Sibylla is a passionate and enthusiastic tutor, who believes strongly in helping students to build their confidence and learn how to think critically for themselves. She looks for a student’s connection to a subject to help structure lessons that the student is able to engage with and enjoy.
She has tutored maths, English and history from KS1 to GCSE, including towards the 11+. She therefore has a robust understanding of the syllabus, but also works hard to tailor material for lessons towards the individual student, for example by focussing on text excerpts that they are likely to find interesting, and engaging them through their interests. Sibylla also has experience tutoring young people with SEN, including autism, and is currently carrying out a TQUK-endorsed course on teaching children with SEN. She also has experience of tutoring online, and enjoys using online resources to make this as interactive and constructive as in-person lessons.
Sibylla has the ability to engage and strike a rapport with young people of all ages, and she is a patient and interested mentor. She spent two months as an English teacher at a summer camp in China, and has experience working as a Facilitator in arts education contexts with children aged between 6 and 18.
Sibylla gained a First Class degree in English Literature from the University of Edinburgh in 2016, before gaining an MA in Directing from LAMDA. She studied Art (AS), Psychology, History and English Literature for A-Level, and retains a strong interest in these subjects. Outside of teaching and directing, she is a keen artist, writer and traveller, with a particular interest in Russia.
