Personal Description:

Having completed a BA 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 'real life geographer’ as a Senior Economic Development and Regeneration consultant 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 prize for the best dissertation for my MSc in Sustainable Development
* I scored a high 2.i for my BA 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) 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 University 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 believe that effective tutoring requires a long-term, progressive approach to learning so tend to seek regular work (e.g. weekly) with sessions lasting between 2 and 3 hours.

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.
