Anthropology graduate with 2 years experience tutoring GCSE-level English, based in Brighton

Methodology

My teaching method is based on pedagogical research, and as such I believe in building a rapport with my tutees to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable asking questions and giving answers they might be unsure of. I teach with interactive methods to keep tutees engaged, beginning classes with warm up games before moving towards exam-style questions. I strive to ensure students are confident in their abilities first and foremost, and in their understanding of the format of exams they will undertake.

Experience

I am a recent graduate of Anthropology and International Development who has tutored for 2 years with Action Tutoring doing one-on-one lessons as well as teaching up to three students at once, working with tutees towards their English GCSE (with great results!).

Ottilie's CV

Recent Anthropology and International Development graduate with a strong work ethic, excellent communication, research, and organizational skills, and a drive to work for organizations that have a positive impact in the world.

Key modules include:

My degree involved extensive processing of information to be synthesized into various formats such as extended essays, reports, and blog posts.

I have also learnt to analyse and interpret various sources to decipher narratives and their positionality.
