About me

Hey guys! I’m Chloe, a second year Philosophy undergraduate at Durham University, with a love for all things books. Although Philosophy is my main field of study, I also tutor English, after achieving A*s in GCSE and A Level, and winning ‘Most Outstanding English Student’ in my city, so am well-equipped to deliver this knowledge in its best form: clear, concise and accessible. Studying Philosophy as a degree facilitates my tutoring as I have developed the critical thinking skills studying English alone would not provide, therefore I am more prone to offer logical, yet a deeper and detailed analysis. Philosophy is known for being ‘to the point’ and I have experienced explaining things in their simplest form during my time as a tour guide in an aquarium. Being from a state school myself, my passion for education has come from within. State schools throw hurdles at you which in some cases make you a better student if you tackle them well. Something notable is that I did not have an English teacher during my A Levels, which has meant that my success has been a result of independent work, finding and creating my own resources with self-motivation. I wish to assist students in the best way I can.

About my sessions

First of all, I recognise that each student is individual and therefore prior to our first session, I encourage the student to provide as much information as possible about what they would like to achieve and collaboratively come up with a schedule for upcoming sessions because I believe preparation is key.

First of all, I recognise that each student is individual and therefore prior to our first session, I encourage the student to provide as much information as possible about what they would like to achieve and collaboratively come up with a schedule for upcoming sessions because I believe preparation is key. Unlike other tutors, I believe tutoring is not just within the hour scheduled, but is about getting an overall picture of the student and their abilities. To achieve this, I will also provide constructive and detailed feedback if the student wishes to send in any work, and I will mark according to the exam board. Additionally, I provide my own resources in the style of the exam board: detailed lesson notes on which we can collaboratively edit on Google Docs, practice essay questions, unseen passages for my English students, as resources from exam boards are often limited due to the new specification. These can be used as an aid for revision, or to look over during the sessions. If you have any questions regarding myself or my sessions, please do not hesitate to contact me, I am very friendly and I aim to respond within a few hours. I look forward to meeting you and discussing my favourite subjects!
