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.

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.

The session I had with Antonia was mindblowing! Consulted her on university level geography concepts, and she helped enlighten me to how intriguing and stimulating geography as a subject is. She came incredibly prepared with useful materials, and was so helpful :)
