« I highly recommend Nina as a tutor to anyone who’s interested in the humanities and social sciences. Not only does Nina have an excellent academic background in her own right, but she is able to communicate this knowledge in a clear and accessible way. Having known and worked alongside Nina for the last three years, I can confidently say that she would make an excellent tutor - she is incredible supportive, and always willing to find new ways to explain difficult concepts. »

University of Oxford History graduate with A* in English literature at A Level offering English Literature & Language tuition.

Methodology

I can teach students of all ages and tailor lessons to students interests and level.

I can teach students at secondary school age (including GCSE & A-Levels). These lessons would be structured around a student's syllabus; we would analyse passages, discuss wider themes, and talk about structuring answers clearly with a focus on critical and different thinking (qualities needed to achieve top grades).
For university admissions I can support students' writing of their personal statements and develop their critical skills in advance of potential university interviews.
For students younger than secondary school we can read shorter works and poetry together and engage with them through games and activities. This also involves working on creative writing projects.

I care most about engaging students and building their confidence so all of my lessons will focus around discussions and creative exercises to push students to think differently. Each lesson would involve getting in touch before to exchange resources we would cover in the lesson.

Experience

I am a History graduate from the University of Oxford, with A-Levels in English Literature, History, and Maths (A*, A*, A respectively).
During sixth form I tutored students in Maths and English Literature to GCSE level achieving pass rates. During university I gained experience working with students ages 12-18 through directing at multiple Model United Nations Conferences where I helped students to learn about and discuss global issues.

Nina is a passionate and enthusiastic individual whose love and knowledge of history and patience in outlook stand her in good stead to be a great tutor on Superprof. She provided lots of help during the “History of Science” module of my Bachelor’s, and has often explained complex concepts (inc. non-history related) to me calmly but informatively. I cannot recommend her more highly!

S
Sebastian

Nina is a knowledgeable and charismatic tutor. She combines deep insight of the subject matter she teaches with an approachable personality, fostering confidence in her students. As such she has helped me immensely throughout various academic endeavours. I would recommend her to students of all ages!
