Personal Description:

I hold a BA (Hons) in Geography from Cambridge University and have A Levels at grade A in Geography, History and Psychology and grade B in English Language and Literature. I taught overseas for several years and have been tutoring in London and Surrey for over three years whilst working full time for an educational charity. My job means I have a good understanding of the current educational landscape and policies, such as the recent reforms to GCSEs.

In my spare time I enjoy watching Formula 1, going to the cinema and visiting London’s many museums and eating in its great restaurants!

Please note - I live in Surrey but work in central London. Therefore I am available for tutoring during evenings and weekends in both these locations. I also offer lessons via Skpe.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring Geography and History in London and Surrry for over three years. I have experience of a wide variety of exam boards including OCR, Edexcel and the iGCSE. I have tutored students both short and long term and have seen an improvement in their exam results and their confidence.

After graduating Cambridge I spent a total of four years in Thailand. This included six months teaching English in government schools and over two years with a Burmese NGO where I taught Social Studies and Environment Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a genuine passion for both History and, especially, Geography. I try to share and spread this enthusiasm in my tutor sessions as students learn more when the subject is made both interesting and relevant. Whilst I focus on exam technique and how to breakdown and answer the questions, I also want students to gain a real understanding of the subject. My lessons are always well planned and tailored to the individual needs of the student.

With many students increasing their confidence and self-belief is as vital to their success as furthering their subject knowledge. Therefore I like to take time to get to know the student and understand their specific issues and barriers. I like my first tutor session with a new student to be a chance for us to get to know each other and establish their goals so that we can make a plan together to achieve these.
