About me

I have recently graduated with a 'Double-First' in History and Economics from Oxford, where I tutored part-time. And I'm now studying towards an MPhil in History at the University of Cambridge.


I scored the A* in all of my 11 GCSEs and 4 A-Levels (in History, German, Maths and Russian). At University I was top of my year in first year and averaged one percent below the top mark in finals. With my expertise I can guide students through difficult problems and expl...

I have recently graduated with a 'Double-First' in History and Economics from Oxford, where I tutored part-time. And I'm now studying towards an MPhil in History at the University of Cambridge.


I scored the A* in all of my 11 GCSEs and 4 A-Levels (in History, German, Maths and Russian). At University I was top of my year in first year and averaged one percent below the top mark in finals. With my expertise I can guide students through difficult problems and explain them all from multiple angles.


I didn't always enjoy academia, though, and it wasn't until quite late that I began to find it so rewarding. So I know how challenging school can be and love seeing students progress. And having tutored since school, channeling students' interests and efforts so they are well used is something I find hugely rewarding.

About my sessions

Or, when they are ready, I will often taken students through sample questions - fine-tuning exam technique and making them familiar with harder sorts of problems.

In the early stages progress comes by seeing an increasing familiarity with a topic and ease of responding to questions (sometimes given as small exercises between lessons). And, at a more advanced level, this can be gauged with past-papers.


My ideal lesson is when a student gives sends me the topics and questions they are having most difficulty with. And by the time of the lesson, I can think of the best way to explain them - making sure the student gets what he/she needs
