Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Amy and I am an enthusiastic tutor, determined to help you reach your academic potential. I graduated in 2010 from Bristol in Law with a 2.1, and then proceeded to do a masters at the University of Cambridge in Building History, where I gained a distinction. I have now finished my Ph.D at Cambridge researching the involvement of elite women in eighteenth century architecture.

In my spare time I love to cycle, visit country houses and museums.

Tutoring Experience:

I have experience of tutoring students in English and the Humanities at primary, secondary and adult-learner level, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I have experience of coaching students through exams in English, History and Geography. Most recently I have been employed by Cambridge University to conduct supervisions with third year university students in the history of architecture. I have also lectured masters students on the Building History degree.

I worked for Edexcel (an examination board) for two years during which I was involved with the preparation of examination papers in History. This has given me a unique insight into how exams are created to test students knowledge, understanding and examination technique.

I am currently tutoring via Skype and have found this to be very successful as it offers greater flexibility.

I am very happy to teach via skype.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that learning should be fun and approachable.

Within the first session I believe it is paramount in understanding what the student wishes to gain from the sessions. Is it their understanding that needs improving or their knowledge? Are they working towards a specific goal/exam? How much time does the student have to reach this goal?

I will then devise a strategy by consulting the relevant specifications/past exam papers to ensure that the necessary areas are covered.

During our sessions I will seek to use a range of materials to make the subject as accessible as possible, whilst ensuring that the 'meat' of the subject is understood.
