Personal Description:

I'm a motivated and passionate undergraduate at Oxford, reading Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Worcester College. I'd love to be able offer my help in a range of subjects, and am keen to enable bright students to fulfil their potential, be it for entrance exams, national exams or university application. I live between London and Oxford, and am flexible with regards to travelling around these two cities.

Tutoring Experience:

Over vacations, I've worked as a private tutor in my neighbourhood, teaching Maths for the entrance exam to Latymer Upper School. I've given an introductory course to PPE to a prospective Oxford applicant, have given classes to prepare for the ACT test and have tutored Economics as part of freelance work for Allen and Jain, an education concierge. I've had some similar work guiding students through their History coursework for A-Level.

Tutoring Approach:

When taking on a new student, the first thing to establish is a particular goal that the student would like to work towards. From this, a functional plan can be developed to make sure that this goal is realised.

My approach to tutoring differs between the various subjects I offer; for example, it'd be hard to conduct fully-spoken Maths lessons when investigating calculus, and likewise a Spanish lesson would be useless without some element of oral practice. However, a principle that joins the way I teach these subjects is that rigorous and profound understanding is essential for any meaningful study. In class, ideas need to be taught with energy and clarity of communication, and these then require consistent reinforcement, usually in the form of homework exercises. First time round, I was accepted at Oxford to study English Language and Literature, and as a linguist, I'm interested in optimising communication for the purpose of succinctness in dialogue when teaching. Depending on the end goal (an exam, for instance), structured practice of exam technique, as well as help with developing an effective revision strategy prove immeasurably valuable for students, and I believe I can offer this.
