Personal Description:

I am a graduate from the University of St Andrews with an MA in Ancient History. My tutoring experience is primarily focused on one-on-one personalised learning, however I also have experience of group tutoring. In my free time I self publish books on various topics.

I am able to tutor from my home in Hampstead Garden Suburb or can travel to students in neighbouring areas including Hampstead, Highgate, Muswell Hill, Finchley, Hendon, Golders Green etc.

For students further afield travel can be considered based on distance and my schedule at the time. I also offer online tutoring.

I believe that my excellent communication skills and solid academic background enable me to be an effective tutor within my subject fields. I am currently tutoring students in History, Government and Politics, Classical Civilisation and English Literature.

My hourly rate is very competitive based on my experience, success rate with students and what I bring to the equation.

I consider myself classically cultured through my various trips to both Greece and Italy where I have spent much time in Galleries and Museums as well as visiting Architectural landmarks from both the Classical and Renaissance periods. I am also an avid attendee at various Ballets and Operas.

I like to allow my students to flourish through a range of techniques outlined below.

Tutoring Experience:

I have clocked up hundreds of hours of tutoring students each year since 2013 coupled with part-time experience prior to that.

I have previously worked as a tutor for the Kumon Mathematics programme where I tutored both Primary and Secondary School pupils.

I have worked for the Iris Project as a visiting Latin tutor to Primary Schools within the Fife area of Scotland whilst reading for my degree where my fellow colleagues and I helped to improve Literacy through basic Latin.

I have also worked at an English Language School in Bournemouth.

I have been tutoring for three years on a part-time basis and since the 2012-13 academic year full-time.

I have a proven track record with my previous students who have achieved A*/A grades primarily, and with none achieving lower than a B grade. These grades have been attained by students who were predicted grades as low as D/E by their schools.

Alongside this I have worked with students who suffer from concentration issues, students with Aspergers Syndrome, Autism, Dyslexia and Dysphraxia.

Finally as a successful interviewee for the University of Oxford I am able to provide experience of UCAS applications and University interviews for Oxbridge and other top-tier establishments.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is adapted to suit the needs and requirements of the individual. Many of the students I currently work with are very adept at retaining knowledge but require help with exam technique, essay writing skills, revision etc. I tend to set my students homework between sessions.

Ideally tutoring should form part of a well-rounded curriculum which incorporates many elements such as sports/recreational activities, museum trips, reading around the subject etc.

Tutoring sessions are varied and include learning, note taking, revision, discussion, exam technique and test questions. These are tailored to the individual student.

I often get my students to write answers and then show them ways in which the question could be answered or interpreted differently. This allows for increased dexterity therefore building confidence both for class work and examinations.

My reviews on this platform attest to the rapport I have established with my students which is vital in helping students to achieve their full-potential.
