Personal Description:

I am an Oxford University graduate with a Doctorate and a Masters degree, and I am a trained teacher. I am an experienced full-time tutor offering a dedicated tutoring and education service.

In both 2015 and 2016 my students had 100% pass rate at grade C or above and several students achieved A grades in both English and History. Some recent tutees have seen their grades rise from C to A, from D to B and in one case, from E to B.

I frequently work with home-educated students and am very aware that they need a different tutoring approach to those at school or college. I teach complete GCSE and A-LEVEL courses or I can support you if you are distance learning with another institution. I am very experienced with CIE History and English.

I offer one-to-one tuition in my home and online lessons. I also offer a Study Buddy programme where you can combine lessons with a friend and get a discount.

Often students know the syllabus but are unclear how to answer questions in the analytical, structured format that gets good grades. I teach with a focus on restructuring answers in the style that examiners prefer and to develop your own original ideas into an effective argument. Confidence is also key to success, so I work with you to promote understanding, learn academic technique and build confidence in your own abilities.

Tutoring Experience:

13 years
CIE, AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a professional, bespoke tutoring service that tailors lessons to the pace and ability of each individual student. There is no `one size fits all` approach. Every student is different and that is reflected in my tutoring style - my job is to find something that works for you and helps you to achieve your goals.
