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.
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.
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!
