About me

I'm intellectually curious and like to challenge myself to think even more deeply and to examine my beliefs. This is what drew me to Philosophy and the analytical and evaluative skills that come along with it can also be found in English and Politics. All my subjects require a mixture of specific knowledge and evaluation which I hope to help others discover how to master.

I'm intellectually curious and like to challenge myself to think even more deeply and to examine my beliefs. This is what drew me to Philosophy and the analytical and evaluative skills that come along with it can also be found in English and Politics. All my subjects require a mixture of specific knowledge and evaluation which I hope to help others discover how to master. I am hard-working and always try my best which is reflected in my three A*s at A Level and the volunteering I have done in my own time. The love for learning I feel I hope to inspire in others so that students will not only understand what is required of them for examination but also find an interest in their subjects.

About my sessions

All of my subjects are technically specific and the knowledge can also be tricky to grip and so it id important for me that the way I teach is catered to each individual pupil. Nevertheless, there are important over-arching principles for each subject. For RS and Philosophy essays are usually examined on a basis of knowledge and evaluation. Thus, with colour coordinated notes and clear explanation, I can help to understand the complicated ideas. For evaluation, tables of strengths and weaknes...

All of my subjects are technically specific and the knowledge can also be tricky to grip and so it id important for me that the way I teach is catered to each individual pupil. Nevertheless, there are important over-arching principles for each subject. For RS and Philosophy essays are usually examined on a basis of knowledge and evaluation. Thus, with colour coordinated notes and clear explanation, I can help to understand the complicated ideas. For evaluation, tables of strengths and weaknesses can help students to visualise the structure of an essay. For English, if a student is studying a set text I have studies I can obviously help them with the specifics of the text but even if not, language analysis is the most important thing to work on and that can be done by giving students sentences that are filled with description and imagery for them to 'unpack'. Politics is more about learning key ideas which can be done with organised notes, tables and mind-maps. I can measure progress with questions, topic by topic. Again, with essay subjects I think it is most important that I consider students' particular concerns.
