Geography and prospective MSc GIS student offering Geography and other relevant support within Tamworth, Lichfield and Rugeley, Staffordshire.

Methodology

I have a competent understanding of how to deliver tutoring as during my A level studies I was homeschooled for part of my course. My study style is student-led by which I can help to fill knowledge gaps in areas that the student most struggles with. Moreover, during my own time, I am willing to mark past papers ready for the next session as by learning from the mark scheme the student can identify what the examiner is looking for.
Furthermore, my expertise in GIS and remote sensing is most beneficial as this is a new area within the field of geography and most importantly the school curriculum. I have the software downloaded onto my laptop and therefore can physically show how software's work rather than to just learn from a textbook.

Experience

I am a current Geography Student at Aberystwyth University, who will be graduating in May 2018. I relevant knowledge of Geography and Environmental Earth Sciences from GCSE to Degree Level. While undertaking my degree I have tailored my studies towards physical geography, completing relevant modules in GIS and remote sensing, rivers, glaciers, geomorphology, geology, as well as, undertaking a months fieldwork in New Zealand. While I am a specialised physical geographer, I have a competent understanding of human geographies such as economic development, social studies, politics and urban risk.
