I specialise in a breadth of humanity and essay writing subjects up to A Level and beyond in some cases. I provide a tailored 1:1 service with students to develop a personal essay technique and help build their confidence with the English language across a range of humanities subjects such as English, History, and Geography. Where necessary, I will also work with the student to fill in any gaps in their knowledge in these areas.
I offer an additional free 15 minute introduction before the first hour session to assess the student’s style of learning and required content to be covered. This will help to tailor future sessions to ensure maximum student engagement and increase the efficiency of our time together.

Having recently come out the other end of the education system, I am very proficient with essay writing, revision techniques, and exam preparation. I am a patient teacher and a firm believer in guided learning, helping the student to understand, research and critically analyse the topic themselves.
As individuals, we all have our own preferred way of learning but this may not necessarily be the way things are taught at school. As a result of this discrepancy, we often see students that 'love' science based subjects but 'hate' writing essays. A lack of connection with a subject can quickly lead to a vicious circle of them falling behind, losing their confidence, and resenting the subject further. Whatever the case may be, this discrepancy in teaching styles is easily rectified with tailored 1:1 sessions that help build a more positive learning attitude.
I offer a range of different learning and essay writing techniques to help students gather and assess the correct information, quickly and efficiently make a draft, and produce an essay answer that is succinct and relevant to the question. I also offer a number of revision techniques and good study practices according to the individual’s specific needs. These may include revision flash cards, crib sheets, written practice questions, or simply talking through the subject to give the student a chance to formulate their answers out loud, fill in the gaps where necessary, and build their own confidence. Inspiring the student and creating an enthusiasm for the subject is half the battle. The other half is a combination of technique and knowledge retention.
I am also able to offer help to students with specific learning difficulties such as Dyslexia and ADD. I am not officially qualified in these areas but instead teach from my own personal experiences and advice given to me by trained specialist throughout my higher education.
I have been fortunate to have carried out part of my education in the private school system and am therefore able to offer some informal preparation for the entry interviews required by private/public schools.
