Personal Description:

I am a friendly and enthusiastic PHD student and lecturer at UCL with a great passion for teaching and education. I specialise in essay writing skills and won the prize for best dissertation in history at Manchester University in 2014. I hold a first class honours degree in History from the University of Manchester and a Masters (Distinction) from UCL. My specialist areas are A level history and English. My hobbies including cricket, travelling and reading.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught three semesters as a PGTA at UCL. I have a great deal of experience both as a teacher of secondary school students and University students. In the past two years I have tutored an average of five hours a week in the following subjects:
A and AS level : English Literature/Language, History, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation; GCSE English and History; Entrance exams for year 9 entry. I have given university level seminars and lectured in the following courses at UCL: Science and religion in the global community, Introduction to Jewish philosophy and mysticism (which I helped develop and run with my supervisor). I also have experience marking university-level coursework.
I spent three years as an informal educator in King David High school during my time in Manchester University (2011-2014). This included several weekly one-on-one voluntary study sessions for secondary school students as well as conducting group study sessions. Additionally, I have organised, led and administrated seven educational camps for primary and secondary school students aged 9-18 (2008-2013).

Tutoring Approach:

My approach towards tutoring focuses on simplifying essay questions and breaking them down into understandable segments, clarifying what is required at each stage to succeed under examination conditions. In particular, I place a great emphasis on structure and believe that the crucial aspect of all essay writings, from GCSE to Degree level, is combining a student's intuitive style with a clear structure and effective use of language.
