Personal Description:

My name is Holly and I am an undergraduate reading English Literature at Cambridge University, about to go into her second year. I live in Durham City Centre and completed my GCSEs (ten A*s) and A Levels (3A*s) at Durham High School for Girls, where I graduated in 2014. During 2015, I took a gap year where I studied at UC Berkeley in California, and lived in Paris for 6 months. I have a lot of experience with children, having au paired for three families whilst in Paris and travelled on holiday with two families as both a babysitter and tutor. I am passionate about English and the arts and hope to get into the publishing industry. I am extremely warm, gentle and conscientious and my passion for my subject would make me endeavour to help your children do their absolute best.

Tutoring Experience:

Before embarking on my studies at Cambridge, I took a gap year, during which I spent six months living in Paris, teaching English to children and adults with proficiency levels varying from beginner to mere accent practise and complex grammar. During my time at Cambridge, I have regularly taught children English, Philosophy and History up to GCSE level, as well as personal statement writing, on the online tutoring website, MyTutorWeb. During August 2016, I travelled as a tutor for an English family, helping their daughter prepare for her 11+ exam and their 13 year old son with his pre-GCSE preparation.

Tutoring Approach:

I am available to tutor your children in English, History, Philosophy and Religious Studies. My approach would be to firstly gauge what it is the child needs particular help in, whether this is preparation for an exam or in targeting more specific areas. A lot of children struggle with structuring answers or essays and I would plan one with them and then go through it with them, targeting areas of struggle or formulating a structure for future essays. I am happy to tutor in analysing literature or non-fiction, as well as in language itself.

For Philosophy, History and RS tutoring I can tutor content, as well as structure of answers.

For teaching English as a foreign language, I can adapt to any level of proficiency and target all areas, whether reading, writing, language/grammar, speaking and vocabulary.
