About me

Hello! I am a current LLB student at UCL, having already completed a Bachelor of Arts at the Paris Institute of Political Science, where I specialised in Comparative Politics. I chose to study Law, in the end, because I think it truly is an amalgamation of the subjects I love most: literature, economics, and history.


Although I eventually passed through both GCSE and IB with extremely high grades (all A*'s at GCSE, and a 42 at IB), I nevertheless experienced my own healthy share of academic failures. Thus, I believe I can not only help students with the nitty gritty of essay-writing and exam preparation, but also provide them with personal guidance as they complete their GCSE's and IB exams.

About my sessions

I will structure each session by tailoring it to the student's needs. I have each course's syllabus and textbook, which I will use to come up with possible exam questions to test the student with. At the end of each session, I will review what we have learnt or practiced with the student, as well as create a to-do list for both the student and myself, which will help in creating an outline for the next session.


I think every week needs to have something new to add to the student's knowledge or journey as they prepare for their exams: although constant past papers and mock essays are a surefire way of exam preparation, I believe the student's complete understanding of what the syllabus is asking of them to be much more important than their essay-writing skills. They should understand the in's and out's of the grading criteria, and understand the content they are studying before they ever put pen to paper.


My sessions will initially cover the syllabus and the relevant grading rubrics, and then will pass on to patching up any gaps in the student's knowledge or understanding of the content itself, before then delving straight into exam preparation and essay-writing/oral exams.

Questions Matilde has answered

How should I write a grade 7 essay?

The most stressful parts of the IB exams (especially HL) are Papers 2 and (if HL) 3. Seeing as how you will only have about 30-40 minutes to write each essay, your 5 minutes of preparation time at the beginning of each exam should relate mostly to content, not format. A grade 7 essay is structured, concise, relevant, and nuanced. If you hit each of these points, you are guaranteed to write an excellent essay.What makes an essay structured? The PEEL method, which stands for:Point - a topic sentence to open up your paragraph,Evidence - a relevant fact that supports your point,an Explanation of your point's relevance and importance in the grander scheme of things (this depends on the question), anda Link to your thesis statement and your next body paragraph (or conclusion).Each paragraph should have a specific purpose to it, given in your topic sentence, which will either further or oppose your argument - meaning every fact or piece of historiography you include should be both concise and relevant. The complete structure of your essay depends on the question given (be it a 'To What Extent' or 'In What Ways' question), though you should at all times nuance your take on that question by keeping into account not only what different historians thought, bu also what you think. This will lend itself to a more personalised and standout essay.The most stressful parts of the IB exams (especially HL) are Papers 2 and (if HL) 3.
