About me

I study geography at university because I love both people and the environment and geography gives me the ability to study both. Due to the variety of geography as a degree I end up studying everything from politics and economics to rocks, rivers and other physical landforms, giving me extensive knowledge in a wide range of fields.


What sets me apart from other tutors may be my experiences. I understand exam stress very well as I was one of the first years to go through the new A Level syllabus blind (without the use of past papers or past grade boundaries) – meaning I can help students with their studies and beyond, giving them advice on how to revise for exams in each subject. Haven taken geography, biology and psychology at A Level I believe I have extensive knowledge on revision techniques as I used completely different techniques to revise for each one, from flash cards to PowerPoints to extensive video playlists I can recommend what I think might work best based on how each student learns best.


I also understand that applying for university can be very stressful, therefore I aim my tutoring to alleviate both exam stress and the stress of applying to university and thus I can offer help on how to write a personal statement and general advice on the process of University applications.

About my sessions

In terms of tutoring style, I base my lessons on what my student specifically needs. I like to plan out lessons beforehand based on what my student is struggling with so we both enter the session with an aim of what we want to get out of it and so we have direction, though I am also flexible in that I will spend longer on a topic my student is struggling with to make sure they fully understand it or am capable of changing my lesson plan if my student comes up with a question during the study session.


Based off my own experiences of learning through school and university I like to use a range of media such as text, diagrams and video animations to help get my message across – especially when it gets to the more complicated concepts in sciences.


I personally like to measure progress based on how the student is feeling about a subject. If they come in feeling overwhelmed and that they can’t do it I aim to have them leaving a session with a changed attitude, feeling like they do understand the topic so that they can walk into exams confidently and enjoy the process of learning as a whole. I therefore aim to encourage learning by giving students confidence and enthusiasm in their subject base.

Questions Hannah has answered

Describe the MSM (Multi-Store Model) of memory.

The multi-store model of memory, or MSM for short, was first created in 1968 by Atkinson and Shiffrin in an attempt to understand memory. It is a linear model with three main stores: the sensory store, short term memory store and long term memory store. The sensory memory store takes in information from the five senses and has an unlimited capacity, meaning it can store an unlimited amount of information at one time. The stores duration is less than 0.5s, after which the sensory information will decay and be forgotten. The short term memory store has a capacity of 7 + or - 2 items, meaning at any one time an average of 7 items can be stored for a duration of up to 30s. The long term memory has an unknown capacity and unlimited duration - meaning it is currently unknown how much information can be stored, though many academics believe it to also be unlimited, but that once stored the memory has the capability to last a life time.Beyond the three main stores the model describes the recording of memory like a computer system, with inputs (from senses) and outputs (through memory decay). It also describes transfer of memory between the stores. For memory information to be transferred from the sensory memory store to the short term memory store the information must be seen as relevant and paid attention to. For the transfer between short term memory store and long term memory store there must be consolidation, and for it to remain in the short term memory there must me maintenance (maintenance rehearsal). This can all be shown in the diagram below.The multi-store model of memory, or MSM for short, was first created in 1968 by Atkinson and Shiffrin in an attempt to understand memory.
