Personal Description:

Based in West London, I have a BA in English from the University of Cambridge, St John's College. I am patient, fun, and empathetic and perhaps due to my youthful appearance, get on incredibly well with my students.

I am able to assist with UCAS Applications and Personal Statements, as well as Oxbridge and Russell Group exam and interview techniques for English and the Humanities. I can teach Entrance Exams, having attended Grammar School.

I will only take on a handful of students, in order to ensure that I can give each student the individual attention they need to excel.

GCSE Grades: 9 A* and 5 A
A Level: A*AAA

Tutoring Experience:

As well as teaching in an out-of-hours school, I have privately tutored students from the ages of 6 to 25 in English, Maths, Science and Entrance Exams. I have taught both those who need help and those who want a challenge, but the aim is always a comfortable understanding of the subject to ensure success.

Tutoring Approach:

No one student is the same! Everyone learns in different ways, with different interests and skills and different personalities. It is impossible for a teacher to provide individual attention to a class of 25+ students in just one hour at school. I believe it is important to get to know my students personally; that way I can teach my subjects in a way that makes sense to them, and the sessions are much more fun! One-to-one teaching can be intimidating, so I always start with a relaxed and friendly environment.

It's also important to begin with any problem areas and resolve them. Fixing the big problems first provides a sturdy foundation for further education, making it easier to understand and remember everything later on. This is often neglected in a school environment, and I believe it is the cause of low grades or even apathy in the crucial exam years.

I had a chronic fear of Maths as an adolescent, but thanks to one patient and friendly tutor, I excelled and achieved three A* grades in Maths, Additional Maths and Statistics. I know the power of a good tutor!

It's also useful for students to have a sounding board or fresh set of eyes for coursework, dissertations and revision notes; I have a keen eye and a sharp mind, creating discussing and provoking textual and theoretical exploration in sessions. I am meticulous when it comes to spelling and grammar, so a good proof-reader!
