About me

Hello! My name is Olivia and I am currently studying at the University of Oxford.


I have found the diversity of Geography as a multidisciplinary subject very stimulating as it bridges Science with Humanities.

I have particularly enjoyed tutoring Maths, Economics, Geography and helping Oxbridge applicants. Sharing ideas with tutees, watching their weekly improvements and developing a conducive and friendly relationship has brought me great pleasure and excitement.

Hello! My name is Olivia and I am currently studying at the University of Oxford.

Whilst taking exams at school, I often found the sheer volume of knowledge overwhelming. Whilst teachers were extremely considerate at trying to break down the information, the most valuable help came from my peers and older years. I truly believe that those who can recall and have overcome that sense of vastness and confusion are the ones best equipped to help the next generation of students taking similar exams.

About my sessions

My tutorials will help students think about their work differently, to help make it more enjoyable and gain higher grades quickly.


Tutorials are structured by a short quiz testing the knowledge of the previous week. I understand that the tutee will have many other subjects and events during the week so this is not meant to scare them. Simply going over previous knowledge in a friendly test format can increase the speed of progress.

My tutorials will help students think about their work differently, to help make it more enjoyable and gain higher grades quickly.


Tutorials are structured by a short quiz testing the knowledge of the previous week. I understand that the tutee will have many other subjects and events during the week so this is not meant to scare them. Simply going over previous knowledge in a friendly test format can increase the speed of progress.


After covering the chosen topic in a format specialised to the particular topic, the session will end with a quick-fire round of everything learnt in the session so far. This will make sure the tutee can recall new knowledge without prompts and will outline weaknesses to follow up on in upcoming weeks.


In between sessions, the tutee is given the option to be e-mailed or texted current affairs articles and wider interest reading around the topic. In my experience, this has helped the tutee develop a greater passion for the subject and made upcoming sessions more enjoyable as well as making way for extra-curricular discussions.
