About me

Hi, I'm Antonia! In July 2018, I graduated with a 2:1 in BA Geography and I am currently reading for my Masters degree at the University of Birmingham, specialising in Human Geography. During my time at university, I have written for my student newspaper and was a student rep for all second year Geography students. In addition, I actively write for my personal blog.


When it came to picking my options for GCSE and A Level, I knew that essay based, humanity subjects were the best pick for me. I love being given the unique chance to think for myself and to reach my own conclusion, in ways which other subjects can't. At GCSE level, on top of my compulsory subjects, I took History, Geography, Spanish and Textiles.

For A Level study, I opted for English Literature, English Language, Geography and History. My interest in History provided me with the all-important context I needed to analyse texts in English Literature, while Geography was all encompassing of many of my interests and my love of writing. I worked hard to refine a critical and analytical writing style at school and a range of highly transferable skills, which prepared me well for university.

About my sessions

I think it’s so important for students to set themselves a series of immediate goals, such as achieving a certain grade in a subject, and long-term goals, whether that’s further education or employment in an increasingly competitive labour market. My sessions would be tailored to the individual student and will allow them to see how developing skills to pass a subject in the immediate future, could be of crucial importance to their long-term career.


My online sessions emphasise the importance of planning essays and writing them under exam conditions, as sitting an exam is a skill in itself. Any concerns the students have with content are initially addressed, before going on to exam technique, practising writing succinct and useful essay plans in 5-10 minutes (the time frame which most exams allow for, I’m afraid!) and to encourage students to critically reflect upon the strengths and weaknesses of the written work they produce. These analytical and critical thinking skill sets are highly transferable and highly sought after by employers. In addition, students regularly write up exam questions outside of our sessions for me to mark. I provide detailed written and verbal feedback.

Today we went through some practice questions for my mock coming up soon. She really helped me develop the content into exam answers with extra information on the topic for revision! :)

Prepared revision sheets and notes based on a large topic I struggled with, very helpful and communicates the topic well in a way easy to digest and dedicates a lot of time and preparation toward her sessions! Would highly recommended to other students that struggle or that are aiming for a top band marks / high grades in History, Geography, English Language or English Literature!

Questions Antonia has answered

Explain the socio-economic consequences of population movements for source countries across Europe.

An adverse socio-economic consequence of population movements for source countries across Europe is the brain drain. The brain drain is a geographical term which is used to explain the socio-economic phenomenon, where highly trained, qualified people emigrate from a source country to a host country. Highly trained professionals from Poland frequently join the brain drain to Western European countries, such as the UK. Here, as a result of the lack of highly trained professionals, the source country of Poland is likely to experience a significant change in the types of employment sectors which characterise the country's economy, including a shift from primary sector jobs to tertiary industries such as hospitality and tourism for example. However, it is important to be aware of the ways in which population movements can positively affect the source country in question. While the brain drain certainly symbolises a significant immediate depletion of the country's workforce, socio-cultural reasons for migration often result in remittances being sent home to the workers' families. But in the longer term, emigration allows source countries to benefit from the new skills which the workers have acquired during their time overseas. These can be skills particular to a certain trade, which can help to boost the source country's economy by injecting better skilled individuals into key sectors of the economy, or they can refer to language skills which can have positive externalities on the worker's community, by passing on these language skills to their local community back home.An adverse socio-economic consequence of population movements for source countries across Europe is the brain drain.
