I look forward to teaching anyone, regardless of their academic level, and I hope that my lessons will help my students not only achieve their goals but also stimulate their intellectual curiosity. I believe that learning should, above all, be interactive and inclusive: my lessons are very much a back-and-forth. This is particularly true of A-level and university admissions, where individual opinion and an ability to consider a question from multiple different angles is crucial for success.
I have just completed my first year at Downing College, Cambridge, studying for the History tripos. In my preliminary examinations, I achieved a starred first, coming joint-top in my year group of c. 170 students. I received 3 A* grades in History, English [full marks] and Mathematics as well as one A grade in French at A2 level. I have 10 A* at GCSE and an A in OCR FSMQ Additional Mathematics.
I have extensive tutoring experience running over 2 years in History, English, and Mathematics from 11-plus to A2 level. I have also taught Pre-U History. Students I have tutored at 11-plus have received offers from top independent schools such as Alleyn's and Dulwich College. Others have received interviews from Westminster and King's College.
Having recently completed my A-levels and the Oxbridge admissions process, I am in a unique position to offer tailor-made advice about how to succeed in both exams and academic interviews. I am very much aware of the style of writing and essay structures which are required of candidates in order to achieve top marks. This includes an appreciation of changes made to the GCSE and IGCSE syllabuses, as well as of the shift from modular to linear A-levels.
Beyond this, I would feel comfortable helping with personal statements and university admissions for History, having obtained offers from Cambridge, Durham, St Andrews, UCL and Exeter.
I am willing to travel about 45 minutes via public transport to tutor. Ideally, if distances are longer than this I would prefer to use online tuition. I am of course flexible on this!
