Personal Description:

I graduated from Oxford University with a 2.i BA in History and Politics, and am currently studying a Master's in World History at King's College London. Before this, I achieved A* grades at A-level in History and Religious Studies, an A at A-level in Politics, and an A at AS-level in English. I tutored 2015-16 to help offset some of the costs of my Master's, and am looking to continue doing so in London. I benefited greatly from some inspiring teachers myself, and I have a passion for educating and inspiring others.

I am able to teach English, History, Politics and Philosophy/Religious Studies to A-level, GSCE-level and below.

I am able to tutor in History and Politics at degree-level.

I can offer assistance with university applications, including crafting personal statements, selecting courses, and coaching for interviews. Having very recently passed through the university application process myself, including interviewing at Oxford, any assistance I provide will be up-to-date.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience as an academic mentor at university, assisting fellow students in comprehension and (especially) essay-writing. I have also taken paid jobs in the past proofreading and editing work up to dissertation-level.

Tutoring Approach:

I approach tutoring as an exercise in making a connection: whether or not a student wants to be tutored (and many may not), progress can only be made if and when the tutor connects to the student, providing them with a reason to learn and to want to learn. Accordingly, I seek to make my tutoring interesting.

Furthermore, as someone who remembers vividly recent struggles and frustrations in learning, I believe it is crucial to provide students with the means to grasp the frameworks of what they are learning and to deal levelheadedly with new and novel problems. I believe that this can be achieved through additional provision of study tips (eg. revision strategies, essay-writing).
