These include Westminster School, St. Paul’s School, Eton, and Merchant Taylors’ School. Trausti helps students to think about how they can communicate their knowledge and opinions, passions and interests, so that their personality is not obscured by prepared answers in their interview and platitudes in their personal statement.

As a Mathematics tutor, Trausti uses tried and tested self-reflection sheets highlighting errors and areas for improvement and approaches GCSE preparation in a meticulous way. This has helped numerous students achieve their target grade or higher at GCSE.
