Personal Description:

I am a current third year undergraduate studying English and History at Queen Mary, a part of The University of London. Prior to this I studied Philosophy at the University of Southampton. I left Westcliff High School for Girls in 2012 with As in English Literature, History, Religious Studies and Extended Project at A Level. I have worked at The Royal Bank of Scotland Group since May 2010, just before my GCSEs commenced, where I worked 5PM -9PM each weekday evening. Despite this I still achieved A*s in English Language, Religious Studies and I.T as well as As in History, Maths, Biology and Textiles and Bs in Chemistry, Physics, Art, English Literature and P.E… I have continued to work at RBS throughout my studies and find the balance of my work and studies effectively demanding yet satisfying and I think it is important to instil this work ethic in other students. While studying in my final year of my degree I have been promoted to a team manager at RBS, whilst also being successful in obtaining a place at University College London (UCL) to study an MA in The History of Political Thought and Intellectual History.

Tutoring Experience:

My prior teaching experience includes working at local primary schools as well as a London secondary school, helping with marking students work and invigilating examinations. I have tutored through this site and through word of mouth for the last 2 years and have had a number of different students across age ranges. I tutored a football team of boys in year 11 (individual tuition and spread through word of mouth) for GCSE English all of whom passed with A*-C grades some of which were predicted and receiving Us and Es prior to my tuition. I have also done a lot of A Level tutoring for English, Religious Studies and History where all students have received A*-B grades. A particular student had received a C and a D in AS Level Religious Studies and English respectively, but after seeking my tuition and doing resits, which I supported the student with, came out with all As at A Level and went on to study English and Film at the University of Leeds.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to take it away from the classroom, to explore subjects in a way that relate to children and teenagers more personally and therefore effectively whilst still adhering to and meeting the Curriculum and assessment criteria. My aim is to inspire students, and to invigorate them with the desire to achieve anything. I understand that education is sometimes not the primary focus of an individual, and I am more than aware of the pressures children and teenagers are under in order to achieve their own aspirations, such as attending university or learning to drive, and this is why I provide a compassionate and understanding service, ensuring that I work to the needs of the student.
