About me

About Me:

I am a student studing Combined Honours in Social Sciences at Durham University, specifically Anthropology, Psychology and Politics. Having studied the IB at school, I have an interest in a wide variety of subjects, and would like to be able to help people in as many areas as possible.

I have also worked with my local Rainbows and Brownies Groups for 4 years, so I have had a lot of experience working with children. 

Tutorials:

I want the sessions to be enjoyable and relaxed, and I'm happy to go over anything you feel uncertain about. 

Past exam questions tests your knowledge and understanding of the topic and your ability to answer the question, so I feel that these are an important way to check we have made progress at the end of a session. My aim is to make you feel confident enough to be able to explain what we covered to someone else.  

If you have any questions, please message me or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'!
