Cambridge MPhil graduate with experience tutoring history up to degree level. Can tutor a range of humanities and French up to A Level/IB Higher Level.

Methodology

My approach to tutoring is shaped by my experience working with young people both inside and outside academia. Getting to know the young person behind the student is key to understanding how best to engage their interest in the material - especially for SEN students. From the outset I create a friendly atmosphere that emphasises the importance of dialogue to the teaching process. I encourage the student to actively ask questions and not be afraid to make mistakes. This develops their confidence, as well as nurturing their intellectual curiosity and passion for the subject.

Rather than lecturing them (and quickly losing their attention!), I try as far as possible to guide their understanding from what they already know to more challenging material - encouraging them to share their own thoughts and ideas. I challenge them to explain what they think and why they think it, offering constructive feedback throughout this learning process. This Oxbridge-style tutorial format, leads to deeper understanding of assessed material, as well as developing the crucial ability to think critically. This approach lays important foundations for students to be proactive, independent thinkers in academia and in later life.

These advantages are complemented by a rigorous focus on results. Lessons are thoroughly prepared in advance and tailor-made to the academic needs of the individual student. These include regular verbal and written exercises that hone in on particular areas of weakness. This allows us to quickly identify, talk through and rectify misunderstandings together. This not only develops a watertight foundation for future learning, but leads to fast progress. This provides the student with a sense of achievement and pride - which in turn motivates them to strive towards even greater success!

Background

I have offered tuition services for the past 4 years mainly in History, French and Latin.

Having also worked with SEN students for a number of years in summer schools and as a tennis coach, I have developed a well-rounded sense of how to maximise and sustain a student’s progress. As I remember from my schooldays, the classroom can be a daunting place - and a student’s voice is often drowned out in a sea of others. Confidence-building through a patient and empathetic engagement with a student’s individuality is therefore central to my approach to mentoring and tutoring.
