Having completed a MA in Geography at the University of Cambridge and an MSc in Sustainable Development at Royal Holloway, University of London, I am now working as a Senior Economic Development and Regeneration Consultant at a global multi-disciplinary professional services firm in London. I am a passionate tutor and have had much success with students working towards their GCSEs, A-Levels and university degrees.

  • I know how to achieve exam success, attaining 8 A*s and 2 As at GCSE level and 3 A*s and 1 A at A-Level
  • I achieved a distinction for my MSc in Sustainable Development and received the highest mark of my cohort
  • I was awarded a starred distinction and a prize for the best dissertation for my MSc in Sustainable Development
  • I scored a high 2.i for my MA in Geography and was awarded a number of travel awards to undertake my dissertation

My specialisms are tutoring and providing support for those writing dissertations, coursework and essays (including proofreading).

Tutoring Experience

  • I have tutored GCSE and A-Level students from Latymer Upper School (Hammersmith), the French Lycée (South Kensington), Ilford County High (Ilford) and Bennett Memorial Diocesan School (Tunbridge Wells) - on average my students grades have increased by two levels (e.g. from a C to an A)
  • I have supported students from Newcastle University, Reading University, Durham University and Sheffield University with improving their essays and dissertations
  • I have undertaken extensive proofreading of essays and projects for students from the University of Cambridge, Royal Holloway and Sheffield University
  • I have fully supported a student with their Extended Project dissertation and presentation (they attained an A*)
  • I have been tutoring an elderly friend how to use their iPad and iPhone

Tutoring Approach

I take a structured and organised approach to tutoring. This involves the provision of high quality, self made workbooks for students to complete alongside my teaching - I take a 'learning by doing' approach and do not lecture. This is followed up by the creation of mind maps and the completion of exam questions. I often co-teach with my close friend and PhD student Daniel Casey.

I live in Crystal Palace and work in Farringdon. At the moment I only have very limited capacity and can help on a topic by topic basis or with essay/dissertation support.
