I hold an MSc in Development Studies at the London School of Economics and currently work to in the development sector, specialising in education. As part of my work, I hold a TEFL qualification and develop programmes in Education and teach up to 150 students each day. Previously, I studied at Oxford University reading Philosophy and Theology. Prior to this, I completed A-levels in English Literature (A), Art and Design (A*) and Religious Studies (A*). As well as this I completed an EPQ for which I gained A* and 100%.
At GCSE I achieved 7 A*s and 2 As at GCSE level, with 100% in Art and Design and Philosophy and Ethics. At A-level I achieved 2 A*'s and an A in Philosophy and Ethics, Art and Design and English Literature respectively.
I have approximately seven years of experience, tutoring up to ten students within one week. Given this experience, I am very familiar with teaching using a variety of learning techniques. From this experience I have enjoyed a host of top grades from my students. My most recent Biology student went from an E grade to their final result being a B. My Religious Studies student had previously been working around a D grade in class, and also went up to a B grade in her final exams.
Alongside my tutoring experience, I have also volunteered to teach. At university I taught Religious Studies and English at a nearby school, whilst at college I regularly attended year 7 and 8 classes (age 11-13) to help improve their reading. In my current profession I teach to local women in Cambodia on issues surrounding women's rights.
Tutoring both the arts and the sciences, I feel that any subject has the potential to be a favourite among students if an exciting and encouraging environment is present. Therefore, my approach is to maintain a positive attitude at all points, so as to create a stimulating environment where students are able to enjoy the subject they may once have been struggling with. As well as this, an environment needs to be created in which the student feels that they can ask for clarification or a further explanation on a topic at any point. For this, I employ a friendly, energetic and comforting approach that allows students to say when they do not understand something.
