« Victoria has been a good friend of mine for approximately 10 years. We studied throughout secondary school together, through to studying our A-Levels at the same sixth form school and remained good friends after our time studying together and still remain good friends now. Victoria has always been somebody I can rely on in times of need and will go out of her way to help others even if it does not benefit her personally. She is a kind, approachable and knowledgeable young woman who thrives to achieve and aid others in the process. Victoria has brilliant time management and has balanced her university requirements, personal study time, social life, and personal life brilliantly throughout her university degree to which I am confident she will continue these skills through to her tutoring career and will be a trustworthy and reliable tutor for students to utilise. »

Geography third year student at the University of Birmingham offering AS or A-level georgraphy tutoring and essential revision tips

Methodology

Soon to graduate from the University of Birmingham after studying Geography and Urban Planning, I aim to tutor and guide Geography students at AS or A-level. I believe my tutoring methods of useful revision techniques help to not only aid the understanding of topics but also help form a distinctive method for exam preparation. This technique has proven successful for myself at A-level studies after receiving a grade A. I believe my 3 year degree has also deepend my understanding of the subject meaning my research skills may be used to help A-level students reach higher marks.

Background

I began tutoring a family friend at the begining of 2017 due to the student struggling particularly with Geography out of the three A-level subjects chosen. My initial response was to try and simplify the topics through the use of bullet points, diagrams and revision notes. This worked tremendously and after three months the student now feels confident in re-sitting an AS exam, as well as taking the A2 exams.
A-levels can be extremely daughnting but when the content is broken down and simplified, the correct revision techniques can guarantee great marks.

Victoria has always been a friendly and supportive person and this coupled with her strong academic ability makes her the ideal candidate for tutoring. She's organised, patient and believes in working hard to achieve your goals. Victoria would help with both academic content which she's excelled at both in school and at university and also break-down study techniques that will help make exams seem far less daunting. Her advice to me about mind-mapping and revision notes have been something I've used many times throughout my own degree and she'd definitely put her all into helping anybody feel more confident with their work.

Geography was my worst subject at a-level, vicky really helped simplify the things I couldn't understand and helped me think of fun creative ways to revise. I ended up getting a B which I don't think I'd of gotten without her help! I wouldn't definitely recommend her to others.
