Currently working in PR, I spent nearly three years working in journalism after graduating from university. Studying in Portsmouth, I specialised in journalism and english literature, receiving a first (above 70%) in each of my journalism subjects. I have extensive experience, both academic and vocational, in working with the written word.
My mother is a college teacher and I have assisted with her private tuition in the past. Additionally, while working as a journalist, I would regularly work with the students on work experience, and assist them in improving their articles for publication.
I aim, as a tutor, to focus on helping students approach their exams with confidence and understanding. I would focus on exam-style questions and past papers. As part of this, I would show them the skills needed to write an essay in this way, which would prove vital for further study.
