About me

I would love the opportunity to help others to achieve the results they desire, as my teachers did so for me, in an educational and welcoming environment.


I am currently studying History at the University of Birmingham. For me, History is a multi-dimensional subject, capable of eliciting numerous interpretations from a single event.

I am currently studying History at the University of Birmingham. For me, History is a multi-dimensional subject, capable of eliciting numerous interpretations from a single event. With each historical work derives a different perspective, which in itself is open to deeper analysis, and it is this interpretive nature that initially attracted me to the study of History. 


As well as studying History at A-Level, I have also acquired essential transferable skills from my other A-Level subjects, which I consider to compliment my study of History. Psychology requires a critical mind as well as evaluative skills, and for Mathematics it is important to have the confidence and flexibility to solve a problem with a variety of approaches and methods.


Along with my studies, I love playing sports, specifically netball and rounders, and have essential skills to enhance my tutoring sessions. In 2013, for example, I won the school’s public speaking competition as the main speaker in a team of three, using this as a chance to develop my communicative and teamwork skills, through presenting to my peers a topic that I am passionate about.

About my sessions

I strongly believe that improving a student's exam technique is fundamental, hence I recommend answering countless practice questions and essays from previous exams. To do this, I help students in structuring their answers, and ensuring they include enough detail to achieve the higher grades.

I strongly believe that improving a student's exam technique is fundamental, hence I recommend answering countless practice questions and essays from previous exams. To do this, I help students in structuring their answers, and ensuring they include enough detail to achieve the higher grades.


When I was preparing for my school exams, I wrote detailed notes taken from various textbooks, as well as the information given by my teachers in lessons. I then condensed these notes, and applied the content to a range of practice questions and essays, so that I would feel prepared if a similar question appeared in the actual exam. Fortunately, I have kept these notes, and so will use them in my tutoring sessions.


I will set achievable goals with my students, and endeavor to encourage and help my students to accomplish them.
