After graduating with honours from the Research Master’s Media Studies (With Honours, 2013) I gained work experience as a lecturer in Film Studies, Philosophy of Science and Academic Writing at the University of Amsterdam. Alongside my work for the university I worked as a tutor, helping undergraduates reach their academic potential.
I have ten years of experience working with a wide range of students, including students with learning difficulties like dyslexia, ADHD and autism. Furthermore, having previously worked as an academic and motivational trainer for GCSE students, I bring a lot of knowledge and enthusiasm to the table.

APPROACH TO TUITION
I am an enthusiastic tutor with a great skill for helping students to prepare for exams and deadlines in a fun and efficient way. I design results-based lessons that focus on boosting confidence and balancing academic progress with learning enjoyment. Central to my lessons are assignments that demand active engagement with a subject and help students grow into confident learners. The aim of a lesson is hence always twofold: by studying a certain subject in preparation of an exam, the student also acquires study skills that will prove useful in further education.
"Aletta has been a great support to our son in his preparation for the City of London admissions test (11+). After weekly tutor sessions, he scored excellently in his test."
"Aletta is currently tutoring 2 young primary students through our tutoring agency. One is a young boy who has ADHD, and one who is a young girl. Both students are preparing for 11+ exams in the future. I believe both students are expecting to and hoping to obtain placements to leading independent schools in London. Both parents have been delighted with Aletta's work so far. She is covering Maths, English, verbal and non verbal reasoning with them.
In our experience, Aletta has been a pleasure to work with - very professional, accommodating and patient."
"Our son is really happy and really enjoys his lessons with Aletta - he'd prefer to have lessons every day!" (Mother of 10+ student)
