I hold an undergraduate degree from Downing College, University of Cambridge, where I achieved a strong 2.i in English. I am now working as a New Business and Marketing Executive in a large London advertising agency, and am offering tuition during the evenings and at weekends. I am friendly, approachable, and have previous experience of tuition both as a tutor and a tutee, which means I am perfectly placed to offer a sympathetic understanding of my tutees' needs.
My wide-ranging experience covers subject specific tuition, particularly in English and Maths, as well as assistance with exam and essay technique. I am also highly experienced in assisting with entrance exams, University applications, and interview practice.
I have wide teaching experience, in both one-to-one and group settings. I was a peer mentor throughout my High School education, and also offered instrumental music tuition to primary school students whilst I was completing my A Levels.
For two years whilst at University I was employed by the Cambridge University Admissions Office as a CAMbassador. My role involved representing the University at access events including national University fairs, and explaining the admissions process to prospective students. This experience gave me invaluable knowledge of the Oxbridge admissions process which leaves me perfectly suited to advise students on their University applications and prepare them for interview.
I then spent my gap year as a volunteer youth worker at a residential retreat centre, where I lead groups of up to 52 young people (aged 8-18) in retreats aimed to help them explore issues of personal development and social responsibility. I also lead outreach programmes in schools, and individually managed classes of up to 30 young people.
After my first year of University, I worked as a volunteer teacher for 6 weeks at HVP School in Kathmandu, Nepal. I taught English and other required areas of the curriculum to children of both Primary and Secondary school age.
I am an attentive and enthusiastic tutor, who creates a relaxed environment in which tutees feel comfortable and encouraged. I am always keen to understand a tutee's individual needs and to tailor my approach accordingly. Whether preparing to take a formal qualification, or working for general academic improvement, my tutees will feel engaged and supported in their work.
