Personal Description:

I am an experienced tutor and Cambridge graduate offering both in school and private tuition tailored to pupils' interests and strengths. My specialist subjects are German, History and Maths.

For A Level I studied Maths (A), History (A), German (A) and French (A). At university I studied German and Russian (specializing in German and spending my year abroad in Berlin), as well as taking papers in intellectual and political History from the History faculty for my finals. I have also very much been involved in competitive debating: I have won or been a finalist in numerous national competitions and currently run a debating society at a local school. Since leaving university I have taught myself Further Maths A Level.

I have strong academic interests, particularly in German literature, modern history, philosophy and the history of ideas. On the lighter side of things, I am an avid fan of comedy and all things to do with cookery.

Alongside tutoring, I also work as a freelance translator.

Tutoring Experience:

My teaching experience includes:

- Tuition for 3 students taking GCSE German, for one of whom as their sole teacher. Results were A*, A*, A.
- GCSE Maths revision classes in a local school
- Working as a teacher at the Global Young Leaders summer school. This course was aimed at teenagers interested in politics and debating.
- Tuition for over a dozen students taking maths GCSE
- Tuition for 6 students taking Maths A Level, and group revision sessions for Maths A Level
- Lessons with three younger pupils, one working towards their 7+, the other two working towards 11+ exams
- Beginner's Russian lessons for a student in year 9
- Two students taking A Level History
- Lessons for a student studying GCSE History
- Setting up and running a debating society in a local school
- EFL tutoring in German, where tutees included a student who successfully applied to study for postgraduate study at Oxford and a professional interpreter
- Running debate workshops for the Cambridge Union

Tutoring Approach:

Alongside thoroughly covering syllabus material, I believe it is important to focus on key skills: for History communication, argument construction and analysis, in the case of language tuition, confidence and fluency as well as a solid grasp of the basic grammar and vocabulary and for Maths extensive applied practice of the material and, where possible developing an understanding of the underlying mathematical principles at play.I aim to offer lessons which provide solid, structured exam preparation which are nonetheless stimulating and intellectually rewarding for a wide range of students. I believe that the best way to do this is in a considerate way, which encourages rather than demotivates students, with a sensitivity to a lack of confidence students may have in a given subject.
