This is how 2 referees rated Robert:
I am an experienced and enthusiastic tutor with classroom teaching experience. I graduated from Brasenose College, Oxford in 2017 after having studied History. Between 2017-19, I worked at the prestigious Eton College in the History department and as the College's Filmmaker-in-Residence.
At Eton, I was part of a 3 person team working with History Oxbridge applicants three times a week, advising on every step of the admissions process. This has included advice on personal statements, marking History Aptitude Tests, and carrying out mock-Oxbridge interviews for both the Eton students and applicants from other schools. In the year 2017/18, we received more Oxbridge offers than any other department in the school. I have also worked on the Eton Universities Summer School for the last four years running, teaching history and working as a tutor.
I have tutored extensively for UK and US school exams at a variety of levels for a number of years. On top of my normal teaching commitments at Eton, I ran a weekly series of essay clinics for exam students, advising them on structure and content. I have worked closely with History Oxbridge applicants at Eton, advising on every step of the admissions process. This has included advice on personal statements, marking History Aptitude Tests, and carrying out mock-Oxbridge interviews.
My tutoring method gives emphasis to independent thought & critical thinking rather than the ability to learn and regurgitate facts. I believe this is incredibly important as this distinction often is the crucial differentiation between a good student and great one. I am happy to tutor specifically for exams or otherwise, but my focus is always on giving the student the tools to engage with the work critically.
