Personal Description:

Cambridge Educated tutor with 7 years experience.

I am well acquainted with the UK educational system, and with the challenges that students seeking to achieve within it can face.

I am an active, engaging and enthusiastic teacher who seeks to create a love and enjoyment of the subjects alongside the hard-skills necessary for success, and focus especially on bringing a subject to life in a way that encourages the student to take ownership of his/her own development.

My academic training was completed at Cambridge University King's College, University of London. My professional career has covered 13 years as a political advisor, and several years in business and consultancy. This experience, combined with more recent intensive training in Method Acting has equipped me with a unique 'tool box' of methods and techniques to release students into their full potential, as well as a useful array of real world experience that allows me to help students understand the ultimate point and potential of academic study.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring students for 7 years now, from GCSE to Postgraduate level, with essays, exams, long essays and dissertations, and university applications. As such I can adapt the principles of my methodology to a wide array of subjects, topics and contexts to help you whoever you are in succeeding in your chosen field.

Further to this I have also been involved in the mentoring of young people for the same period of time, coaching and encouraging young people in order to help them achieve in life. This experience influences my approach to tutoring considerably as it is my experience that a confident and happy student is a successful one.

Please read the feedback and reviews below to see the track record of success that my methods have achieved for students from a wide range of backgrounds. The process has been proven to work for students whose studies have lost direction as well as for those already succeeding and looking for that extra boost.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is focussed on essay-writing techniques, content-coverage and revision strategies, and wider intellectual development.

The first priority is always to establish a clear diagnosis of a student's individual needs, and then to create a strategy for success with them so they have a strong sense of ownership of the process.

Rigour and hard work are a critical part of the process, but I also firmly believe in bringing a subject to life by teaching it through the world of the tutee so as to ensure its relevance. While firmly committed to achieving the curriculum's requirement, I am also a strong enthusiast for supplementing the learning process with non-curricular matierials such as private reading, films, excursions, and personal research. Helping the student find the joy in the subject and the process is the surest route to success, so it is central to my approach that learning should be relevant, fun, stimulating and productive.

In addition to academic tutoring, I am also available for mentoring or coaching sessions for students struggling in matters beyond mere technique. This can be done instead of academic work, or in addition to it, and the two often feed into one another - confidence, clarity and contentment are a vital part of academic success.
