About me

 As an avid reader and enthusiast of critical analysis, english was the perfect subject for me to pursue in my studies. I also study film theory and comparative literature, which has proved useful for developping my critical analysis further; this proves to be the most useful skill to teach when tutoring for essay subjects such as english and history.

 As an avid reader and enthusiast of critical analysis, english was the perfect subject for me to pursue in my studies. I also study film theory and comparative literature, which has proved useful for developping my critical analysis further; this proves to be the most useful skill to teach when tutoring for essay subjects such as english and history. 

Exams are a stressful time for everyone regardless of level and preparedness; I chose to be a tutor as tutoring helped me in both my GCSEs and IB exams; I hope to be able to help students on the platform as much as it helped me. 

My aim in tutoring is to provide an approach that is best suited to the individual; there are various ways to study and memorise content but as each mind operates differently it's important to find the best method for each student - it's time to move past the usual 'taking notes'! 

In attempts to better and improve my own methods of studying, I've attended various talks on the different techniques and ways that can be used to better the studying process and one that I personally found particularly useful was turning key facts into a story or song, as information is easier to retain in more trivial forms that we are exposed to everyday.

About my sessions

My aim is to really cater for the individual needs of each student. Prior to the session I will research the given topic that the student needs tutoring in, in order to be able to provide adequate context as well as the exam techniques. 

I hope to help my students acheiving their goals, by establishing what they want to improve and breakdown how to get there in a series of smaller steps to make the journey there less daunting.

I hope to help my students acheiving their goals, by establishing what they want to improve and breakdown how to get there in a series of smaller steps to make the journey there less daunting. 

At the start of each lesson I would encourage the student to tell me their strength and weaknesses; after the session I would see if what they have previously considered a weakness was turned into a strength. This, along with general measure of my pupil's increase in confidence towards their work would be my measure of success.
