Degree: BA Geography (Bachelors) - Exeter University
I am a geography student at the University of Exeter. I have always enjoyed geography, and I hope that my tutorials prove helpful and enjoyable to you. I am a friendly and enthusiastic tutor who is committed to giving you the best help I can offer.
I understand just how daunting exams can be and so am committed to helping you with all the topics you are struggling with so that when the exams come you are prepared and confident, getting the high marks you deserve!
The tutorials will be guided by you, anything that you have found difficult or want to go over again we can do during our sessions.
During the sessions I will use a variety of methods (such as diagrams) to help you understand a topic.
Knowing what the examiner is looking for in an answer is difficult but by practicing exam answers, I will teach you what is needed for a top mark answer, the exam you have the confidence to ace it!
I hope to make these sessions fun because it is a lot easier to learn something if you are engaged and enjoying yourself.
If you would like to try out a taster session or have any questions about what I offer all you need to do is book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’. You just need to tell me your exam board and what you are struggling with.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Albedo is the reflectivity of a surface. A surface that has a high albedo reflects a lot of solar radiation from the sun back into the atmosphere, whilst a surface that has a low albedo reflects little solar radiation, absorbing it instead.
White surfaces (such as ice) have high albedos, whilst black, dark surfaces (such as rocks) have low albedos. This is important in terms of climate change because ice has a high albedo, and so reflects most solar radiation back into the atmosphere, meaning the ice remains cold. However, due to increased sea surface temperatures, sea ice in areas such as the Arctic is melting. The removal of the sea ice results in further sea warming due to the fact that the sea has a lower albedo, and so absorbs more solar radiation from the sun, heating it. This positive feedback mechanism results in further sea ice loss, accelerating climate change.see more
