About me

Hi! I am an 19 year old first year university student, currently enrolled in a Politics and International Relations degree. I have been interested in Politics and current affairs since around the time of my GCSEs, and I enjoy it due to the potential that political change has to promote a positive effect on the world. Global affairs at the moment, from Trump to Brexit, make the study of Politics all the more enjoyable and I consider myself privileged that I have the opportunity to study it at...

Hi! I am an 19 year old first year university student, currently enrolled in a Politics and International Relations degree. I have been interested in Politics and current affairs since around the time of my GCSEs, and I enjoy it due to the potential that political change has to promote a positive effect on the world. Global affairs at the moment, from Trump to Brexit, make the study of Politics all the more enjoyable and I consider myself privileged that I have the opportunity to study it at a higher level.


But it wasn't the easiest of roads getting here! I found teachers often rushing ahead onto complicated ideas before I was able to grasp the underlying concepts. Instead, I was left to my own devices to develop this basic knowledge and this has given me the ability to help others with those concepts. However, I still thoroughly enjoyed my studies all the way from GCSEs to A Levels, and I am very grateful for what they have helped me achieve, and I am to provide an equally rewarding experience to my students.


Alongside my university studies, I participate in the Politics society and Geography society, as well as a number of sports clubs, so my experience goes beyond that of the humanities classrooms. I am also able to offer advice about essay writing and communication skills, Geography coursework, and the university application process.

About my sessions

I can help my students to improve every facet of their work. From concepts, to statistical knowledge, to the quality of written communication, as well as coursework and university advice, I offer a well-rounded teaching experience. I understand that every student learns at their own pace and it is important to not rush ahead- that is what I wish my teachers had said! My lessons will begin with a basic idea, as according to the syllabus or as requested by the student, and will only move on to...

I can help my students to improve every facet of their work. From concepts, to statistical knowledge, to the quality of written communication, as well as coursework and university advice, I offer a well-rounded teaching experience. I understand that every student learns at their own pace and it is important to not rush ahead- that is what I wish my teachers had said! My lessons will begin with a basic idea, as according to the syllabus or as requested by the student, and will only move on to more complex concepts once the founding knowledge is firmly in place. This is an essential part of teaching conceptual subjects like Politics and Geography. My sessions will be relaxed, to make these subjects, which can be quite dense, as enjoyable and digestible as possible. I will use diagrams, mind maps and models as much as possible to help students to visualise ideas.

My sessions will be based on my own experience, but if a student has a particular request then I will immediately take it on board and be flexible to their needs. I will be open to questions and will always check that a student understands the content. I will not judge a student for what they do or not know or understand: At school I often found myself staring blankly back at a teacher who asked me a question I was not prepared for, and I won't put students in this position; if there is anything not understood then I'll be happy go back and help them through it, as I wish someone had done with me!
