Personal Description:

I am a recent graduate of Oxford University where I attained a First Class degree in English Language and Literature, with a score that put me in the top five students (out of around 230) in my subject across the university. I also achieved 43 out of a possible 45 points in the IB, and 8 A*s and 4 As at GCSE.

I have learned many strategies and techniques over the years to tailor my approach to the task at hand, whether an exam, a piece of coursework, or tasks outside of academic work, and am able to help students both with ways to tackle subjects they find difficult, and with subjects they feel they aren't being pushed enough at by their teachers. I have been on both sides of this beam, and my steady academic improvement from GCSEs to university attests to my ability to adapt and refine suitable approaches to academic study.

Tutoring Experience:

During my time at university I helped prepare students for the Common Entrance exam as well as for GCSEs in a variety of subjects including history, maths and English.

I am also able to offer help with coursework, having achieved an exceptionally high mark in my dissertation, and with personal statements, proofreading and practice interviews.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach centres on assessing the student's ability to each subject and formulating with them a personal strategy that suits their learning strengths and helps to iron out their weaknesses. Everyone learns differently and establishing how you do this best is the first step towards doing well in any subject.

I have tutored a variety of ages and abilities but have found that an approach that consistently encourages independent thinking without a fear of making mistakes works best whether a student is striving for the top grade or trying to pass a subject they find difficult. In this vein I am not afraid to go beyond the syllabus, which tutees often find stimulating and rewarding, in order to help a student gain a deeper understanding of the subject.

I also try to keep up a friendly rapport with my students as this helps maintain an enjoyable learning environment distinct from school, and encourages freer ways of thinking.
