About Laina

I am a former teaching, who still heavily involved in the education sector. I love Geography and am well-travelled, so love to bring my personal experience into learning.

 I am passionate about inspiring young people to see their true potential, and as a Youth Coach, I am committed to raising confidence and aspirations of the people that I work with. 

I have been selected to be part of a fellowship this summer to train teachers in Nepal that are working in schools with limited resources. 

My creativity and flexible approach have meant that I have a range of adaptable teaching techniques, which is one of the reasons I was selected for the fellowship. I have a love of learning and believe that learning should not just be able meeting the syllabus requirements for the exam board. I am patient with all my pupils and will adapt tutor sessions to meet the needs of the learner.

 I am flexible regarding the content that the learner would like to go through, and I can bring resources to each session. 

An A-level student I tutored last academic year went from a B grade to achieving 100% on one her papers!

Availability: I am now freelance so I am flexible on days and times.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Name of the person who provided this testimonial: Jean
My daughter felt she needed extra assistance with her A2 Geography. As soon as we met Laina we knew she was the one to help her. Laina’s knowledge and professionalism are absolutely first rate only surpassed, possibly, by her enthusiasm and her desire for her pupil to succeed. Not only does she know her subject inside out but she is kind, encouraging and listens to the pupil, identifying weaknesses and suggesting ways to improve. I cannot speak highly enough of Laina - you will not find a better teacher. Thank you for all your help Laina.
