About me

   Hiya!     I am Beth and I am currently studying Human, Social, and Political Sciences at the University of Cambridge at Trinity College. My background is mainly in the arts, where I managed to gain 100% in Philosophy and Ethics at A.S and A.2, 100% in English Literature coursework, and 100% in Art&Design.   I have experience in tutoring students from the ages of 13 to 18. I was usually given the 'naughty' pupils because of my determination and focused nature and the students i worked with managed to reach, or excel, their target grades. I am also on Trinity College's Access Team, helping students from less-privileged backgrounds gain an experience of Cambridge life.    If you are struggling with anything related to the humanities, the arts, personal statements, or C.Vs, I can help! There are a variety of methods we can try, and we will definitely find one which suits you best. As you are on Mytutorweb to learn, we will be concentrating mainly on improvements and critique within a conversational approach and framework. I will try to give you interesting, extra-curricular, 'things' to have a look at which will give you an edge to the content of you work. These could be such things as a youtube video, a website, or an article.   At university, I have been editor of my college's magazine, a writer for the university's student newspaper, designed two websites, have been Women's Officer, also known as equalities officer, for my college, and worked at the WHO for two months last Summer. I am excited to help others learn and advance their capability in a variety of subjects!    I look forward to meeting and tutoring you,      Beth.

Questions Beth has answered

What should I do if I re-read my last paragraph and realise I have moved 'off topic' from the original question?

This is a very common occurence, one which can be rectified relatively easily as long as you realise before the end of the paper. In such cases re-reading the paragraph you have just written can actually trigger your memory into understanding why you wrote what you did - it may be relevant but...

This is a very common occurence, one which can be rectified relatively easily as long as you realise before the end of the paper. In such cases re-reading the paragraph you have just written can actually trigger your memory into understanding why you wrote what you did - it may be relevant but confused - in this case a clear, concise ending sentence to draw the material back to the question can be enough.

If you read back the paragraph however, and it doesn't make much sense to put it in the essay you can solve this in multiple ways; one such way would be to cross it out. Examiners do not want to waste time trying to understand why you wrote said paragraph, nor do they want to try to link it to the question. Another option could be to use connective words that give the illusion of a structured and coherent argument, such as "this therefore gives the..." or "thus" or "in light of the aforementioned point".

As a more pre-planned approach, doing lots of past papers and practising essay plans in 5 minutes and 10 minute time scales will really help to battle the "oh no, i didn't effectively plan and now i have gone off topic with only five minutes left" sounds!
