Personal Description:

I am originally from Buckinghamshire, England, but I have lived in Edinburgh for the last four years. I graduated in July 2018 from The University of Edinburgh in MA (Hons) Philosophy and am continuing studying in a postgraduate course MSc Psychology of Mental Health this year.

Tutoring Experience:

In addition to my experience with FirstTutors, I started tutoring early while I was in Sixth Form. I tutored two students in GCSE English and Biology and one in AS Biology, all of whom achieved A-A* grades, and I still continue to help my younger sister with her GCSE and A Level studies. I have a qualification in teaching a foreign language to primary school children, which was assessed on the organisation and delivery of lessons over a week. I also used to childmind for two boys after school, twice a week, and occasionally on weekends so was responsible for going through their reading and spelling with them, as well as completing weekend homework tasks. Aside from academics, I also spent two years teaching beginners how to row at Edinburgh University Boat Club.

Tutoring Approach:

I very much avoid providing the answers. I believe it is much more helpful in the long-term to take things slowly and ensure a real understanding, so that rather than simply memorising a volume of information, you have a useful set of knowledge applicable to situations in the future. I also feel that all learning and revision can be worked in a way that suits an individual. I often struggled with the standard methods shown to me and had to figure out how it was best to approach it from my own point of view, so I can appreciate that different techniques work for different people and have the patience to find them.
