I am looking to to tutor A-Level and GCSE level students who require help with their essay style in any humanity they are studying, including history, philosophy and English literature or language.
Lessons will be interactive and involve a flowing dialogue between myself and the student. I will take into account the learning style and preferences of the individual student.
I believe that learning is an accumulative process, which is why each of my lessons will build on the last.
Students will be exposed to exam style texts, questions and answers to learn skills truly valuable in an exam context which will be discussed, analysed and explained in each session.
I have spent the last three years studying Philosophy at the University of Bristol where I achieved a 2:1. I am going on to study an MA in International Relations at Durham University. I have experience mentoring students in both academic and personal ventures. I have also taught English to French students at the primary level.

Work and volunteering related to the role of an academic tutor
Voluntary Work and Placements
• At University I mentored younger students for personal and academic development. My focus was on successful essay writing, including style and techniques, for all essay writing subjects including history, philosophy and literature. I have also mentored students specifically in the field of English Literature, mostly at GCSE level.
• I volunteered as a teaching assistant in a French primary school. My central responsibility was to help the children to develop their English language skills. This role required strong communication skills, the ability to adapt to different learning styles and crucially- patience.
• I was a steward at the Ilkley Literature Festival where I organised and helped run literary events.
• In my final year of university, I was a course rep. As part of the role I sat on the student council. The role required conferring between the student body and staff in order to implement changes such as changes to examination methods in light of criticism from the student body.
• I have undertaken journalism internships at both B24/7 and the Bristol Post. For both placements I was required to interview business owners and the public for journalistic research. I also wrote my own articles and conducted an interview for the promo video of a start-up restaurant.
• I was in the North Yorkshire Youth Dance Company where I performed at national dance events such as Fresh 2013. At University, I have been a member of the dance society and involved in the 2018 and 2019 annual dance shows. As part of my involvement in the dance society I led classes for younger children.
• I was a member the university’s debating society. Here, I developed my analytical skills, oratory skills and awareness of global issues and contexts.
• Last year I began a blog that critically discusses topical, ethical issues and current affairs.
