Hi All! I am Sonia and I have been passionate about foreign languages since I was a kid. Polish is my mother tongue, but I was always interested in other cultures & languages. As a result, I attended an International IB School in Poland where all of the subjects were taught in English by highly qualified tutors. And this is where I started my educational career with Spanish, which I continued to study at The University of Manchester together with Arabic. I obtained my diploma in languages with distinction in spoken Arabic. After that, I didn’t give up my education and I studied MA programme in Translation and Interpreting Studies at the same institution.
While my year abroad, I was teaching English to Spanish speakers; mostly conversational English. Additionally, I used to teach English to Polish speakers who needed the language for work purposes and also helped the kids from primary school to learn English in a more interactive and not so overwhelming way. At the moment, I am teaching English (KS2, KS3 & GCSE), Maths (Primary, KS3 & GCSE), Spanish and Arabic for Adults.
My approach to tutoring is very simple; to listen carefully. I want to meet my students' needs. I want them to improve and excel. I want them to be more interested in a subject they are struggling with. My students can always rely on me and seek help anytime they require it.
Sonia is really friendly and is helping my daughter who is 10 with her maths. My daughter looks forward to the lesson with Sonia who helps her feel at ease. We tried Kip McGrath at first but she wasn't comfortable and likes it that Sonia visits our home.
We are very happy with sonia. She is always punctual, and willing to be flexible with timings and dates if I need to adjust last minute.
As a tutor, she is very patient and listens to my sons needs. She sets homework that he finds manageable, and when he doesn't understand something he feels comfortable enough to ask her questions.
I would reccommend her to anyone looking for a maths tutor.
She is a very good teacher very patient! She really teaches me a lot!
My daughter, who is very reluctant to do any work, is very happy to see Sonia and looks forward to her tutor sessions.
She is warm and funny and gets the best of my daughter! Thank you
