Cambridge graduate and tutor offering lessons in humanities subjects (based in central London)

Methodology

I am able to tailor lessons to the students’ individual needs whether it be building confidence, communicating concepts and content, or providing advice and assistance with essay writing, exam technique and coursework. After benefiting from one on one tuition myself, and the rigorous teaching methods at Cambridge, I feel I can use this experience to help and support students to progress.

Experience

My name is Ella and I'm a Cambridge graduate taking a year out before beginning my Master’s degree. I can tutor History, Classical Civilisation, History of Art, Religious Studies and Philosophy and Ethics up to A level standard.

My degree at Cambridge, History of Art, was a multi-disciplinary subject and this meant I continued my A Level subjects further (History, Classical Civilisation and Religious Studies including Philosophy and Ethics).
During my A-Levels, I missed half of an academic year with glandular fever. I learnt how to self-teach and kept my education on track, which has also informed my approach to learning. Having been one of a few to achieve a first in my dissertation in my year at university, and full marks at A-level in my History coursework, I have a strong aptitude for research and independent study which I am able to share. I have done work experience at my former school as a teaching assistant as well having experience tutoring History, History of Art and helping with Personal Statement preparation.
