Cambridge Graduate and Professional English and History tutor with extensive experience in supporting students to exceed their goals

Methodology

I have extensive experience tutoring ONLINE. I am well equipped to deliver high quality sessions throughout the current Covid 19 crisis. I work with students of all ages, and can tutor both GCSE and A level curriculum.

I have had a number of successes, helping a range of students achieve their first ever A grades in subjects which they have previously struggled with!

The structure of one to one supervision in Cambridge has instilled in me a firm belief that a personal approach to education is key, and I am excited to practice this in my own tutoring. Having overcome my own struggles with dyslexia I am particularly well placed to offer personally tailored advice on study technique, essay structuring, and exam preparation, as well as boosting individuals’ confidence in their own ability to thrive and succeed.

The college system at Cambridge encourages close supportive relationships between year groups. One of my favourite experiences whilst studying there has been to successfully assist younger students with coursework and weekly supervision essays.

The key to success is confidence and enjoyment. Every student is unique, and my approach is highly personal, catered to individual needs and requirements. Achieving highly at any level in exams is as much a matter of hard work and understanding the system as it is personal ability. Equipping my students with the necessary knowledge of the exam system, whilst also helping them to enjoy their work, will be the key to our joint success.

There are, nonetheless, certain core continuities in my tutoring style. I am a strong believer that achieving success is as much a matter of knowing how to improve, as it is academic ability and hard work. My teaching methods thus centre around making sure my students have a clear understanding of what is required of them. We will work together on making sure that you can effectively display all the skills and content that the examiner will be looking for in order to ensure that you attain your optimum result. In order to do this, we will discuss the syllabus thoroughly to ensure that you have a full understanding of the course content. We will also focus on essay planning and technique to guarantee that you are able to translate this knowledge effectively onto paper. In addition to this, we will discuss tactics for revising in a time efficient and effective manner.

Experience

History graduate from the University of Cambridge, currently studying an MA at UCL in Legal and Political Theory. I have extensive experience as a professional tutor having taught 20+ students a week over the last academic year, all of whom have excelled in their chosen subjects.
