Second year philosophy undergraduate student looking to offer English tuition anywhere from 11+ to A level standard to students in London.

Methodology

Personally, I believe it is very important for tutors to be relatable and, being 19 years old, this is something I would consider myself to be.
Discovering and becoming comfortable with an essay style and structure that both works for the individual and will show off your skills and knowledge to teachers and/or examiners is essential and one of the first things I would wish to tackle with any tutee. Once this has been achieved, more advanced skills such as interpretation and comparison of texts should be approached. The first thing I would do, however, would be to look at the relevant mark scheme as well as the student’s current standard of work in order to see which areas require a stronger focus.

Experience

I am currently studying for my philosophy BA at King’s College London, having achieved AAB grades at A level (Religious Studies, English literature and History respectively) as well as all A and A* grades at GCSE. Taking three essay subjects at A level has made me very proficient in essay writing, a skill which has only improved with my study of philosophy.
With regards to previous experience, I have done some independent tutoring at primary school level. While I appreciate that this isn’t very much, my mother is an R.S. teacher and current head of department and, since starting university, I have helped her analyse and mark GCSE and A level essays, showing that I know what makes a good essay.
