Personal Description:

I have 2 degrees from Oxford (undergraduate in PPE - first class, and a masters in philosophy) and I'm now a PhD student (philosophy) at Cambridge. I have extensive tutoring experience and can tutor students in the following:

- at GCSE level: English, Hstory, Politics, Religious Studies
- at A-Level: Politics, History, Philosophy/Ethics and Critical Thinking
- at university level: Politics, Philosophy

I am also able to help with university applications and interview preparation. I have worked as an Oxford interviewer so have some insight into the Oxbridge interview process.

I am able to tutor in central Cambridge.

Tutoring Experience:

I started professionally tutoring in 2015 and additionally have over the years assisted siblings, friends and family with school work and exam preparation (school entrance exams, GCSEs and A-level). I have taught intensive courses at summer schools for students between 16 and 24 and I have run several philosophy workshops. I also worked as an undergraduate admissions interviewer for philosophy candidates at Oxford. I have experience with students with learning disabilities/special needs, and would be happy to discuss this with you in more detail. My most recent DBS check was July 2017.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe success in exams is as much about revision technique and exam technique as it is about actually learning and understanding the material, thus I think it's important to help students with essay-writing, structuring their revision well and approaching exam questions creatively.
