LUDUS Tuition

ludus (plural ludi)- play, game, sport, training

ludi in Ancient Rome were elementary schools, athletic training camps or games. This name encompasses my three key values: education, discipline and enjoyment.

Based in Cardiff, U.K., LUDUS provides quality private tuition in English and Art, from KS1 to Undergraduate level. The core principles are demonstrable progress and enriched learning. In essence, this means we will achieve your aims and hopefully enjoy the process too!


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.
