We believe that every woman should have access to stunning jewellery but at affordable prices. That is the vision of our business – to offer breath-taking jewellery that will not break the bank. Our jewellery is inspired by stunning fine jewellery, especially diamonds – different types and colours of diamonds. So our product range features Russian man-made diamonds aka cubic zirconia and other high-grade crystals in a variety of different colours.  The products are plated either Rhodium, Gold or Rose-gold for a beautiful and anti-tarnish finish.

The University provided the funding to design our website and advertisement through social media.

berMuzik is literally translated to as “musicking“, which stands for making, listening, and interacting with oneself and others via music. The term musicking was popularised by the late ethnomusicologist, Christopher Small, as a way to understand the nature of the music act and its function in human life (Small, 1999).

At berMuzik, we believe that music connects with people through many ways. That is why we come out with ways to make your music making experiences a special one. Our unique approaches are based on current research findings linked to psychology, music, and education. Be it an event to improve team cohesion or a new journey to the world of music, berMuzik will make it a positive and unforgettable one.

Let’s make music together, let’s berMuzik!

Our Motivation
We aim to help people with disabilities express themselves through user-centered design. We believe that if somebody relies upon a product for their everyday life, it should be a joy to use.

Our Name
exyo, is short for express yourself, because our designs aim to empower the user, with the freedom to be themselves, when using the device they rely upon.

Our Story
We are 3 mechanical engineering graduates from The University of Sheffield who want to invest our skills in helping people.

We started out by helping 2 individuals called Louis and Callum, whom we had the opportunity to design medical devices for, during our time at university. This inspired us to set about addressing problems faced by people with disabilities around the world.

exyo is the birth of an opportunity: To have a real impact on the lives of others; by reaching out to improve physical circumstance and alleviate the stresses and stigmatization that arise through having to deal with cumbersome devices.

Welcome to Knowledge Seekers. We specialise in providing bespoke private tuition for children from reception class to A-level, throughout London.

We believe that one to one and small group tuition delivered by passionate, inspiring and creative professionals is the most effective way of building a child’s self-confidence, passion for learning, and independence of thinking and we pride ourselves on our warm, personal approach to education.

Our dedicated team of experienced, professional tutors have been hand-selected through our thorough screening, interview and teaching observation process, and are then trained in our unique, holistic approach, which is designed to allow your child to reconnect with their innate curiosity and natural love of learning.

I believe that success with any student is not just a case of how well you know your subject, but also how well you can engage with that student. Tuition should be stress-free and as relaxed as possible to promote a positive learning experience. As such, my approach to tutoring is designed to be calming and engaging, as well as knowledgeable. With an extensive background of teaching anxious and unconfident students on a one-to-one basis, I seek to establish an immediate rapport through welcoming discussion, positivity and reassurance.

My services include GCSE/A-Level English and History tuition, as well as general computing, Microsoft Office and ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence).

I take a welcoming and friendly approach to sessions where I value my student’s input for session goals. My tuition covers a wide range including general teaching, revision techniques, essay writing and understanding specifications. My teaching involves a mixture of discussion, demonstration and instruction to suit each student’s preference. For English, I also specialise in presentation planning and delivery for Speaking and Listening modules. Through a combination of calm discussion and practice, it is my aspiration to build my students’ skills by building a passion for the subject based on their own interests and goals. This approach has proved highly effective with my students and I have a strong satisfaction and success rate within my work history.
