About me

Hi there! I’m Maya, a third year history student at the University of Oxford.

I am captivated by history’s lack of absolute truth, and I think that by looking at it less as a study of the past, and more as an exploration into the development of its interpretation, it is a fascinating lens through which we can study the bizarre mess that is the human story. While I hugely enjoyed my IB History course and currently have a wonderful time with my studies at Oxford, history has leaked out in...

Hi there! I’m Maya, a third year history student at the University of Oxford.

I am captivated by history’s lack of absolute truth, and I think that by looking at it less as a study of the past, and more as an exploration into the development of its interpretation, it is a fascinating lens through which we can study the bizarre mess that is the human story. While I hugely enjoyed my IB History course and currently have a wonderful time with my studies at Oxford, history has leaked out into my extracurricular life as well, leading to my positions as President of the Oxford University History Society and Student Ambassador to the Gale archives company. 


Having graduated in 2017, the stress of IB and university applications is still very fresh in my mind, so I am keen not only to give you constructive academic guidance, but to support you through the general pressures of work as well. My 5 years of tutoring experience have taught me that a good tutor is patient, supportive, flexible and above all, personally invested in the success of their tutee. As your tutor I am committed to doing everything I can to help you achieve the results you want. After all, I see your success as something that is just as rewarding to me as it is to you.

About my sessions

History

Historical enthusiasm is important, but I am well aware of the practical aspects of achieving a high grade in IB History. Sessions are focused around the effective construction of essays and the persuasive use of historiography. We'll do this primarily by writing essay plans based on past paper questions and going over my own HL7 work. While during my IB course I preferred this method, if you need help understanding chronology, developing research skills for an IA/EE, or any...

Oxbridge

The admissions process is an exciting chance to abandon all humility and show the admissions officers why you deserve a place at Oxbridge! Fitting your entire life story into 47 lines for your Personal Statement can seem daunting, but in our sessions I’ll help you select and develop the most important ideas you want to include. I will read your drafts and give feedback on content as well as your statement’s linguistic persuasiveness. HAT sessions will combine working through past paper questions together, comparing your timed papers to university mark schemes and going over the most effective exam techniques. Finally, while the Oxbridge interview has a scary reputation, practise interviews will help you get the confidence and skill to voice your thoughts in the most persuasive way. For all aspects of the admissions process, I am very keen to share my personal experience and informal tips as well!
