I have a first class honours degrees from the University of Cambridge in Land Economy, a Masters in Political Sociology from the LSE and I am a PhD student in the Geography department at UCL.

Tutoring Experience

I am an accredited Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy with a book on teaching due to be released at the end of the year as part of a UCL project (R = T).
I have been tutoring GCSE, A-Level, entrance exams and university students for 4 years and I have taught at university level (Sociology and Geography) at UCL for 3 years.
In the entrance year 2015/2016 8 of my 9 students received offers from Cambridge or Oxford.
All my A-Level students received at least an A in their respective subjects in summer 2015 (results pending for summer 2016) and my IB student this year got 42.

Tutoring Approach

My tutoring has always been about engaging with the students in a way they find interesting, finding examples from their everyday lives or from their favourite book/TV show- illustrating how their subjects come through in so many ways.

For university applications I focus on making sure the student has a well structured plan for meeting all the deadlines and being prepared- especially if they are looking at interviews.

At university level my tutoring is about stretching students- finding the bits of the course they have most engaged with and maximising this!
