Cambridge adjustment candidate looking to help others with UCAS and personal statements.

Methodology

- Oxbridge/Russel Group candidates
- I will be mainly working on personal statements but can also help when dealing with extenuating circumstances.
-My teaching style is a hybrid of teacher and student-run. I will prompt a candidate with prompts and proofread personal statements but do not want to be writing one from scratch. Only the candidate knows themselves best and I do not want to impede on that.

Background

I am a Cambridge adjustment candidate for 2019 entry (with a firm place at the University of York) looking to help other Oxbridge candidates with their personal statements and potentially other aspects of their application as well. I am also more than happy to assist candidates who are applying to university with extenuating circumstances/ severe disruptions to their education as I have personal experience in this area.

I have recently sat A-levels in English Literature and Sociology, as well as an AS in psychology. I have already achieved an A in English Language.

On top of personal experience, I am DBS checked and receiving UCAS training on the 6th of July 2019. I am also a study advisor on a national student forum.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h

Details

I am happy to tutor the following students at reduced (negotiable) rates:

-Those with extenuating circumstances
-Students who have had a severe disruption to their education.

Catherine's CV


I am a nineteen-year-old enthusiastic worker driven by my goal to inform and help people to the greatest extent that I can. As a result of this, I am always ready and willing to seize new opportunities. The main reason I would like to be your tutor is to bring what I can to help while learning from the unique experiences provided in this particular role to constantly improve myself as not only a teacher but as a learner.

Core skills

Experience in tutoring in a school environment
Developed customer service and communication skills
I.T. skills with some experience in using HTML

Education

I have finished year 11 with nine GCSEs, including seven B grades in essential subjects such as English, mathematics and science.
I have an A in my English Language A-level, with A*A predictions in English Literature and Sociology respectively. I hope to begin studying Literature and Linguistics at the University of York in 2019.

Past work experience/notable experiences

In 2015, I was employed as an arena marshal at Laser Quest Bournemouth, which included reinforcing safety standards and maintaining customer care.

In August 2016 I completed my NCS course, a government-run experience which aims to teach young people around the country key life skills. I learned key skills and how to communicate with others, as well has how to adapt to new working environments and step out of my comfort zone.

For the past year, I have been working at Paperchase, which has included working on the shop floor, communicating with/selling to customers and having a vast amount of product knowledge.

I volunteer at conventions in Bournemouth and London (Olympia) experiencing jobs ranging from scanning tickets to being a guest assistant to celebrities. This allows me to work various roles under a lot of pressure from organisers and the public, as well as guests and their representatives.

Within school, I held 3 prefect roles in English Language, English Literature, and student wellbeing. I was also a library prefect in previous years.
Writing- I have had work published on the NCS blog (a platform for young people), as well as on The Student Room on Mental Health Awareness Week. I have also written numerous articles for my school newsletter.
I have worked in a school theatre both on and off stage
In the past, I have tutored English to a non-native speaker and read with a year 7 class.
I have voluntarily proofread people’s university applications/ CVs.

Hobbies/ interests

Trampolining – I have a level 10 British Gymnastics certification in trampolining and hope to take up coaching in the future.
Karate- I am a yellow belt in Shotokan Karate.
Reading- In preparation for university, I have read James Joyce’s Ulysses and George Orwell’s 1984 among others.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I am happy to provide university feedback upon request.
Kind regards,
Catherine
