I generally run sessions in the traditional manner of an Oxbridge tutorial.
Unless we agree otherwise, I'll set work (usually short essays) to be sent to me in advance of a tutorial session. We discuss how you've approached the task and whether there are any issues you haven't touched upon. I'll also talk you through how you could improve your essay, making specific recommendations.
Sometimes these pieces of work will be short tasks, focussing on source-analysis or a particular area of linguistics. Sometimes, one task will take place over a longer period, requiring more thought and research. If this is the case, we'll get in contact before the deadline to talk over how things are going and how you've decided to approach the task.
Each task will come back to you fully marked.
I'm an experienced tutor with happy students at secondary and university level.
I primarily focus on gifted students who want to give themselves the best chance of success in examinations and university applications, as well as those who want to improve their academic skills more generally.
I can help students with history, ancient languages, classical civilisation, academic English, and 'general studies'. Please feel free to contact me if there's a particular thing that you'd like me to help with; I'll either be able to help you personally or point you in the direction of an expert in the field!
After our first session, I'm also able to discuss university applications, especially where questions relate to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities; and I'm happy to look over UCAS forms.
Prices vary according to the level of tutoring -- please contact me to discuss.
I'm flexible with booking in sessions and also moving sessions if necessary. Tutorials cancelled outright will have to be paid for if I've spent time preparing.
