TutorCity recommended Ms Kristen Zuriel who taught me for 1.5 years for the final lap of my IB (International Baccalaureate) journey. We focused on Eng Lang & Lit, & ToK (Theory of Knowledge). In addition, she assisted me even in Internal Assessments for subjects like Business Management. She taught me concepts & strategies which pulled my grades up. Her plethora of different study techniques would work for any student resistant to studying, or, to the subject. She makes difficult concepts easy-to-understand. Her dedication meant turning up at wee hours & sitting through gruelling hours for consecutive days to achieve my personal goals. Beyond academics, she taught me valuable life lessons & inspired through personal example to make my mark in society.
