I have recently achieved a DPhil in Anthropology at the University of Oxford. The research I conducted was interdisciplinary in nature and involved the application of a wide degree of knowledge and skills, which I love to employ in pedagogical settings. My desire to tutor is driven first and foremost by a drive to share my knowledge, and to generate a passion for learning in others.

Tutoring Experience

My academic success at world leading institutions - including the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge - spans across many disciplines; from philosophy and history, to the social sciences - including anthropology, sociology, politics, and cultural geography. I have tutored GCSE and A-Level history, A-Level politics, and undergraduate philosophy and religious studies, as well as receiving tutor training at the University of Oxford for social and human sciences. As well as teaching, I am happy to advise on university applications and personal statements.

Given my tutor training at Oxford, my post-graduate studies in a range of social science subjects, and my undergraduate degree in philosophy, I am well-placed to teach in anthropology, sociology, philosophy, and religious studies in addition to history and politics. Equally, I would look forward to teaching English literature or language at GCSE level. Finally, having attended both Oxford and Cambridge, I am able to offer support in Oxbridge admissions.

Tutoring Approach

My aim is to work to enrich the relevant tutee's experience of the subject as a whole, as well as offering a good understanding of the particular assessment in question. I do this through a multimedia approach, curated to suit the learning style of each student. I aim to continuously reassess the student’s needs and to adapt based on their interests and way of learning. My lessons are designed to maintain attention through diverse exercises, tasks, allowing for conversation to flow where it is clear the student’s interest is piqued and the engagement is productive and valuable. I ask students to complete homework prior to each lesson in order to ensure I can understand where and how to direct my assistance.
