I base my classes concretely around the individual student by primarily identifying their key areas of interest in either English Literature, Art History, History and/or Politics. I then assess the student's knowledge of the subject area i.e. a particular genre, theme or historical event, in order to ascertain areas of improvement, looking to develop their conceptual understanding of the subject and written ability. I will adopt a kinaesthetic, auditory and/or visual approach to cater best to my students' needs and maximise their potential, in exams and otherwise.
The lessons themselves, whilst having an incisive, academic edge, will be the product of a dialogue between the student and myself; fundamentally, I am looking to cultivate my students' strengths whilst pandering to their interests, in order to create a tailored, interactive and stimulating learning experience that will both be intellectually rigorous and enjoyable.
I am currently studying History and Politics at the University of Cambridge. I also have a keen interest in English Literature (for which I attained an A* for A-Level) and am a qualified TEFL teacher, having taught individuals across a broad range of ages, backgrounds and language abilities pro bono at UCL. Further, I am fluent in Russian and speak French to an advanced level.
GCSEs: 11 A*s, 1 A.
A-Levels: 3 A*s, 1 A (with 100% attainment in English Literature and Russian, and 98% in French).
Tariffs vary based on the level of the student and are outlined below:
Primary school student: £15
Secondary school student (up to and including GCSE-level): £20
A-Level student: £25
Reduced tariffs for groups (2+ students) are also available:
Primary school students: £10 each

Obtained/ongoing degrees: I am currently studying History and Politics at the University of Cambridge.
Awards: I won the university-wide Latin Reading Competition (2018) and my thesis on the manifestations of the 'os impurum' (impure mouth) came Highly Commended in The Undergraduate Awards (2017). I have also received the Headmaster's Award for English, French and History of Art in Years 12 and 13 at Alleyn's school, won the Governors' Research Essay Prize at Alleyn's school and the 'Lessons from Auschwitz' Essay Competition, obtained a silver medal in the 2015 Mathematical Olympiad and received Best Questioner in the 2014 ESU Public Speaking Competition.
Teaching-related work experience: I completed a CELTA certificate that entailed teaching English to adults across an array of backgrounds and abilities. This provided me with experience of working in a demanding professional environment, improved my understanding of language assimilation/usage and honed organisational skills and efficiency. Additionally, I learned how to maintain interest over prolonged periods of time – particularly with challenging content – and foster a sensitive and targeted approach that catered to the individual needs of students.
