Watford Tutor

I have been tutoring for two years and taught part time at St Albans College for a year. I have always enjoyed studying and hope to encourage others to excel through being patient and supportive. I hold an MSc in Environment, Politics and Development from SOAS, University of London. Prior to that, I graduated from the University of Bristol in July 2016 with an upper 2.1 (hons) in History and a 1st in my dissertation.

Tutoring Experience

September 2017 - Present:
After graduating from my MSc in September 2017 I worked as a researcher for an NGO and tutored history privately at A level and GCSE level.

Between March and July 2018 I took four months out to travel in Paris, the USA, Ecuador and Colombia. I am now working as an assistant librarian and archivist and have returned to tutoring, with a focus on history.

September 2016 - July 2017
A Level Geography teacher, St Albans College.
I held a part-time teaching position at St Albans College for one school year whilst I was studying for my MSc. I taught A level Human geography to a small class of 6 students.

I also privately tutored covering various subjects including GCSE history, English as a foreign language and an adult learner studying for their Maths GCSE, who succeeded in passing after six months!

June-July 2015
I taught English as a foreign language to Italian children in a fully immersive English language camp in Italy. I was the sole tutor for a class of 12 children aged 7-9 in San Severo and a class of 10 children aged 5-6 in Bologna.

Tutoring Approach

I will encourage the student to guide the content of the sessions towards where they are struggling and to apply methods that appeal to that particular learner, whether this is writing practice answers that I mark and feedback or talking through concepts and case studies.

I will focus on techniques for memory and understanding. The focus will be writing skills and structuring answers as this is often vital to allowing your knowledge to to be applied in the way that will gain you the marks you deserve.
