Personal Description:

I am a first class graduate in English Literature from The University of St Andrews. I am currently a postgraduate studying Authorial Practice at Falmouth University. I have significant experience tutoring pupils one-on-one for exams and coursework. I specialize in essay writing and exam performance. English, History, Geography and Languages are my primary subjects for tuition.

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored GCSE and A-Level pupils of all-abilities in English, History, Geography, Languages, Art and Design. My approach is predominantly one-on-one, however I have taught popular essay-writing clinics, and I run language cafes for pupils in the run up to oral exams and controlled assessments. I have worked for schools, marking the English section of entrance papers, and I have used this experience to tutor pupils for similar exams.

Tutoring Approach:

Understanding the frustrations of getting to grips with a subject is absolutely essential to successful tutoring. I do not agree that being either 'artsy' or 'science-y', can inhibit pupils from achieving top grades in both disciplines. The key to this success is not in the child's predisposition, but the manner in which they learn. I am confident in working with pupils to create their own unique study strategies: be it based on memory, application, aural learning, or kinesthetic learning. Having tutored pupils for many years, I understand that there is no single 'right' way to take on board information; whether it is achieving that C grade, or going for the A*, I am able to offer pupils encouragement, patience, and the self-understanding required to tackle their subject with positivity.
