As a Cambridge University graduate I have personal experience in passing exams at the very highest levels. I am passionate about the subjects I teach and thoroughly enjoy my work as a tutor. As a mum myself, I understand the desire to want your child to achieve their full potential, but I am also young enough to remember what it felt like to sit these exams, so can empathise with the challenges that my tutees face. I am a friendly, approachable, individual and am happy to fit tutorials around my clients' lifestyles.
I have eight years experience of tutoring at home as well as in schools. I am currently tutoring KS3 and GCSE English Literature and Language as well as A level History (Modern Britain, Cold War, Germany and Russia), A Level English Literature, A Level Philosophy and Government and Politics. At degree level I have students for both Philosophy and International Relations. I also home school students in GCSE English and GCSE History as well as A Level Politics and Philosophy. In recent years I have helped students complete their personal statements as well prepare for University interviews, including Oxford and Cambridge.
I firmly believe that the best way to succeed in exams is to do lots of past papers as practice. This gives my tutees greater confidence in approaching exams as well as enabling them to practice getting their knowledge out in the required format. I try to give my tutees as much confidence as possible in their own abilities and offer suggested improvements in a calm and constructive way. I am very dedicated to my job and often provide extra support to my tutees in between tutorials at no extra cost.
