About me

Passionate and patient, I want to help YOU achieve the best result you possibly can in your exams.

About Me

I am a Durham University graduate and I studied for a BA (Hons) degree in Politics. The aim of my tutorials is to help you gain a greater level of understanding in your subjects, and hopefully come to love them as much as I do.

I consider myself a friendly and approachable person. I have a lot of experience in this area – I have previously coached swimming, acted as a peer mentor and have tutored both my peers and younger years through their GCSEs and A-Levels. I also have a certificate noting my enhanced DBS/CRB check.

The Sessions

During the sessions, YOU will help to decide what areas we cover. Only you know what you understand and what you need more in-depth help with, so never feel shy about asking me to go back over a certain topic, or even explain it in a different way. I know from personal experience that everyone learns differently, so if you need me to use another approach, I will.

In both of the subjects I am available to tutor (Politics and Psychology), essay writing is key. However, before you can answer exam questions or write an essay, basic understanding is crucial – so this is what we will focus on first.

The goal is for you to become confident enough to explain the theories to me. Then I will guide you through how to apply these concepts to an argument, and we will structure essay plans and mock exam answers until you feel you have mastered the subject.

I also want the sessions to be FUN. Learning can be a really enjoyable experience, and hopefully I will be able to prove that to you after our tutorials!

"Do you offer help for the Extended Project Qualification?" 

Yes! I researched and wrote an EPQ on American Politics at the same time as my A-Levels. Since then I have written many similar assignments…especially my dissertation. I know exactly how daunting it can be, so I hope I can pass on my knowledge and experience.

So – whether you want help with structure, understanding or referencing – just get in contact.

What now?

Hopefully my profile has answered most queries you might have. However if you have any other questions at all, please do book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’ through the website. Let me know how I can help you, that’s what I’m here for!
