Personal Description:

I am 20, and in my first year at Bristol University studying Archaeology & Anthropology and I'm really enjoying it.
I have a very strong academic record; I finished my A-Levels in 2014 with 2A*'s (History and English) and 1A (Politics), and an A in AS level Maths from Wycombe Abbey School. At GCSE, 10A*'s (Maths, English Language, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geography, History, Religious Studies, French, Italian) and 1A (English Literature). I was awarded a 13+ entry scholarship to Wycombe Abbey, and an internal 11+ scholarship at my prep school, Godstowe.

I took a gap year after my A-levels and travelled to Australia for 4 months, and then spent 2 months at the British Institute in Florence to further improve my Italian, as I took an advanced Italian course whilst I was there. One of my biggest passions is scuba diving; I am a qualified Advanced Nitrox PADI diver, and during my gap year I spent a month working for a dive school in the Maldives.

I am a very outgoing, fun person and I thrive in social situations. I believe there is no substitute for hard work, and am very motivated in myself to achieve my own personal goals, which is perhaps why I excelled at school. I am very patient and am not easily flustered. I love watching other people succeed, and helping others to achieve what they thought they could never achieve; tutoring is the best way to help children and young adults achieve the best grades, and get into the best schools that they can.

Tutoring Experience:

I don't have any formal teaching experience, but I have have tutored my sister in the run up to her GCSEs which she will take this summer.

Tutoring Approach:

My revision techniques are very specific and I believe that practising exam questions is one of the best methods to success. Once the information has been learned, it is a matter of practising the questions; for essays, planning the question and actually answering what the question is asking you is crucial. For science and maths subjects, it is vital to have practised the style of questions so many times that it almost becomes second nature.

I think it's very important to be patient with your tutee, and not to get angry or frustrated when they don't understand something, but instead to calmly work it through with them.
