Hello!


I am a History PhD student at the University of Oxford. Alongside my research I am involved in outreach projects for the University and have an intricate knowledge of the admissions process. Before starting my PhD in 2016, I tutored for a year, helping students of all ages realise their potential in a wide range of subjects. I can help you do the same: we will concentrate on what you struggle with, as well as making sure you are comfortable in applying knowledge in efficient and appropriate ways.


Let's meet to discuss how we can work together to get you to where you want to be!

About my sessions

First, we'll meet to discuss how we can move forward before getting stuck in. Lessons will be divided into three parts: improvement of problem areas and making sure appropriate knowledge is prioritised when tested. The third part is homework; whether that is reading or revising or practicing, working outside of school and these lessons is just as important as the work done in them. Whatever the subject, whatever the level, this broad lesson plan offers you the best way to improve quickly....

I remember being at school and tackling tricky topics. Although I could handle some of them in class, I sometimes pretended to understand how to go about it on my own. My lessons are an environment where your understanding is key to build up your confidence to be independent in solving hard problems or discussing difficult topics.
