Personal Description:

I am an Oxford graduate with a 2.1 in Theology and Philosophy. I also have a GDL in Law (Commendation) from College of Law.

Currently I am studying the Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School, and am looking to tutor while I do so. Teaching was a role I seriously considered before deciding to do law, and I feel that I could bring energy and enthusiasm to any tutoring I take on.

When I'm not working, I really enjoy playing guitar (I've just moved to London and am looking for a new band… ), and martial arts - I am a black belt in Judo and a brown belt in Jujitsu. I also love both playing and watching football.

Tutoring Experience:

My tutoring experience is many and varied and includes, but is not limited to:-

-M, 19, who had been rejected from Oxford last year without an interview and had poor grades, but wanted to reapply. We worked carefully on her Personal Statement and essays, and spent time honing her interview skills and ability to present her views clearly and concisely. I am delighted to report that she has been offered a place at Keble College.

-J, 12, who wanted help preparing for Common Entrance Mocks in a variety of subjects. I assessed his strengths and weaknesses and then focused on bringing those weaknesses up to scratch with a programme of past paper questions and constant evaluation. He scored much higher in his subsequent mocks than ever before.

-T and I, 8 and 9, who I am working with on an ongoing basis to improve numeracy and literacy. Each is progressing well.

-O, 9, who I am also working with on an ongoing basis. His parents note that not only has his english improved dramatically, but he has also become more outgoing and happy.

-V, 13, who I helped with her GCSEs; she achieved 7 A* grades.

Tutoring Approach:

I do not have any pre-determined mindset about how to teach; each pupil is an individual and therefore requires a carefully tailored individual approach. At the same time, I do try to ensure a relaxed atmosphere, focusing on sparking the pupil's interest in the subject rather than simply going through the motions. I find that often, confidence is as much an issue as ability, and I think that a relaxed approach to tuition helps in this regard.

I recognize that there is often a lot of material to cover, so my lessons, while informal in tone, are nontheless organized and thouroughly prepared beforehand in order to get the maximum from every session. I draw on materials such as past papers, textbooks etc, but also on my own experience.

Studying for exams or interviews can be very daunting and stressful, and my highest priority is to make sure that pupils have a good understanding of the material. This gives them the confidence that is needed to produce the best exam answers.
