Personal Description:

I am 31 years old and I am a full time economics tutor. Having graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2007 I am now putting much of what I have learnt to help people get through their A-levels. I am passionate about economics and I get a lot of satisfaction from passing on my enthusiasm to my pupils.

Tutoring Experience:

Private tuition
I have tutored over 150 tutees mainly between the ages of 16 and 20 from a variety of backgrounds. Among them were tutees that suffered some form of learning difficulty including dyslexia and dyspraxia, or for whom English is a second language. Through this experience I have learned many techniques for overcoming these barriers. Most have achieved an A/B grade.

Essay-Writing tuition
I have assisted a number of university-level students in preparing assignments, ensuring that essays are written to a high standard that reflects as fully as possible the effort that the student has put into researching the essay. This has involved assisting with structuring, choice of content, phrasing and referencing.

Institutional tuition
I am currently working for two private colleges that mainly cater for high school students from Korea. As such I have gained much experience helping students who may have language-based difficulties.

Residential tuition
Switzerland (2013): ten days of intensive tuition helping two girls prepare for their final International Baccalaureate exams
Scotland (2013): one week spent with a boy preparing for his final A-level exams

Oxbridge interview preparation
I have helped a few people prepare for university interviews. I have provided guidance on what to read, support on what materials to use, and I have conducted mock interviews. As a result of my assistance, two students won conditional offers from the University of Cambridge, and one gained an unconditional offer from the University of Oxford.

Voluntary work
In the last two years I have participated in Teach First’s HEAPS Oxbridge Program which involved giving mock interviews to applicants from disadvantaged backgrounds that were applying to the top universities in the country.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure that the pupil is always engaged by adopting a question and answer approach to begin with. When I find where the weak areas of understanding are, I always try to explain in a non-technical way. At the end of the lesson and at the beginning of the next lesson I review what was learnt, again through asking questions. The process is repeated until I am happy that the material has been absorbed and understood.

In addition to the standard one-to-one tutorial experience most tutors offer, I am willing to go the extra mile to help my tutees to reach their potential by providing:

A really targeted approach. Bespoke session notes detailing each student’s weaknesses are completed each lesson to help maximise the benefit to my tutees continuously throughout the year.

Intensive study skills sessions. The emphasis is on learning techniques specific to Economics

Focus on streamlined study. Students nowadays are bombarded with print-outs and end up with enormous folders. I endeavour to reduce my tutees’ workload as far as possible so they can avoid becoming overburdened.
