LUDUS Tuition

Based in Cardiff, U.K., LUDUS provides quality private tuition in English and Art, from Primary to Undergraduate level. The core principles are demonstrable progress and enriched learning. This means that students' achievements must be apparent, and that they should be able to relate their knowledge to a wider context.

I believe that the role of the tutor is to ensure those aims are met and to provide evidence of this process.  Furthermore, the tutor must guide the student to learn as independently as possible, so they can continue their learning journey with confidence, enthusiasm and curiosity.


My name is Lucy Mebarki. I started tutoring after I left university, alongside my full time jobs in galleries and museums in London. I gradually realised that teaching is where my true competencies lie; it just comes naturally to me to help others and to share the enjoyment of learning. Tutoring is now my main occupation, and I love all the interesting challenges it brings.


Teaching English and Art is compatible with my work as an artist and my cultural and intellectual interests. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, and I love to draw and make sculpture. I also enjoy looking at art, visiting museums and reading. 

Working with students from all backgrounds and levels is honestly the most rewarding thing I have done professionally. Each family, student, and tuition session is different, and I really enjoy adapting to different needs and objectives. The greatest job satisfaction for me is to see a student produce quality work to the best of their ability, and under their own initiative.

About LUDUS Tuition

The word ludus comes from Latin, which was one of my favourite subjects at school. It means 'play, game, sport, training'. In Ancient Rome, the ludus could be an elementary school, athletic training camp or a game. I chose this name because all these things are important to the tuition process: the organised learning of school, the discipline of the gymnasium and the enjoyment of a game.
