Nathan

I am a professional, enthusiastic and inspirational Cambridge graduate. I believe in teaching learning techniques which give students the confidence to achieve high grades for life. I also look to make the teaching experience personalised to a student’s abilities and interests so they can develop significantly faster than in a standard classroom.

EXPERIENCE

Private Tutor — 2018-Present
I provide in-depth tuition on a variety of subjects and am confident across different exam boards and curriculums.

MATHS AND SCIENCE
I value clarity in understanding, so that students have the tools to get the right answer every time.

POLITICS, ENGLISH
I will look to improve your critical thinking, essay writing skills and exam technique.

PERSONAL STATEMENTS AND INTERVIEWS
I will help you write an Oxbridge level personal statement. I have successfully helped pupils get onto the Human, Social and Political Sciences subject at Cambridge.

"Nathan is a patient, understanding teacher. He has a knack for breaking down complex topics into digestible pieces. I found myself quickly improving and gaining in confidence thanks to his guidance." Sam Keen

"An exceptional tutor. I felt much more positive and relaxed about my subject material after just a few weeks. Nathan is very professional and efficient with his teaching. His learning techniques really helped me achieve higher proficiency." Rupert Sparling

Horizons, Mentor - 2021-Present
As part of the Horizons charity, I provide mentoring for sixth form students from underprivileged backgrounds. This includes helping with university applications and preparing for interviews.

"Such a wonderful mentor... each session had a very clear and precise purpose." Hannah Donelon, Horizons Senior Supervisor

VOLUNTARY EXPERIENCE

The Mix — 2019-Present
I volunteer once a week for The Mix’s young person’s helpline, for 16-25yr olds. I have been trained to provide emotional support and to help signpost onto other organisations.

Projects Abroad — 2018
I spent 2 months in South Africa helping run a summer camp for disadvantaged children from townships.

Tutoring Approach

I am most interested in teaching skills that will allow you to achieve high grades for life. I think there is a methodical approach one can take for exams to ensure success. It requires hard work and discipline, but there are a series of techniques which can rewire how you think about working hard. This will ensure you are most efficient with your time and focus your energies towards the right areas.

I will always look to prioritise student welfare, and have a CPD qualification in Safeguarding Children alongside my Enhanced DBS Certificate. My voluntary work for The Mix Young Person's Helpline has also provided me with additional training in emotional support and signposting.
