About me

Hi! I’m a current BSc Geography Student from Durham University. My passion for Geography and Biology has stemmed from when I was very young, having always had an interest in Climate Change and its effect on society and the environment. I understand what it is like to be afraid to ask questions in the fear that they may be stupid. One of my goals is to help you overcome that, by creating a relaxed & welcoming environment outside school that encourages you to become more inquisitive and ga...

Hi! I’m a current BSc Geography Student from Durham University. My passion for Geography and Biology has stemmed from when I was very young, having always had an interest in Climate Change and its effect on society and the environment. I understand what it is like to be afraid to ask questions in the fear that they may be stupid. One of my goals is to help you overcome that, by creating a relaxed & welcoming environment outside school that encourages you to become more inquisitive and gain confidence, so you develop the level of understanding you need to do well.

Outside of studying, I like engaging with the community, having volunteered for my library’s Maths & Literacy Homework groups, as well as previously tutoring GCSE Maths, 11+ and Piano. I have also achieved Grade 8 Piano & Violin, which taught me how crucial the skills of perseverance and practicing are if we ever want to develop our own knowledge.

Having attained 100% UMS in A-Level Geography, I believe I can help advance the techniques and knowledge required for acing those stressful exams, in addition to assisting with coursework. Hence, my principle focus as a tutor is to help you feel more at ease when approaching exams so you can reach your full potential. I also received all university 5 offers, so I am very happy to aid with the Geography Uni Admissions process (e.g- personal statements & EPQs).

About my sessions

Learning can be stimulating if you can understand topics and relate them to the real world. This is why I will tailor my tutorials to what you want to learn, based on your current level of knowledge. I am very happy to start from basic definitions, or from past paper or essay questions that you are struggling with. Either way, to make each session more enjoyable, I will relate all concepts to articles that you may enjoy or to unusual yet intriguing case studies, which you can then use to impr...

Learning can be stimulating if you can understand topics and relate them to the real world. This is why I will tailor my tutorials to what you want to learn, based on your current level of knowledge. I am very happy to start from basic definitions, or from past paper or essay questions that you are struggling with. Either way, to make each session more enjoyable, I will relate all concepts to articles that you may enjoy or to unusual yet intriguing case studies, which you can then use to impress examiners. It is also key to know the syllabus of the course you are studying. Therefore our sessions will link what is taught with different parts of the syllabus so that an all-round understanding of a subject can be developed (which is becoming so crucial in today’s exams).  

It is vital that you get what you need out of the sessions, so I will carry out thorough research ready to answer any questions you have. At the end of each session I will also ask you to prepare and discuss a short summary of what you have learnt and where you would like to go next, so I can assess your progress. Personally, I found that teaching topics to someone else really helps to consolidate your understanding and helps you to gain confidence.

Past paper practice is also crucial in exam preparation so sessions will incorporate example questions related to topics covered in the tutorial so you understand what an examiner is looking for in an answer.
