About me

I am an archaeology student studying at Cardiff university. I love the range of cultures and view points you come across in studying past peoples and their cultures. It really encourages an open mind!

I adore the intersection of sciences and humanities, with specialisations available in osteology, geophysical survey or excavation. The human aspect of archaeology and connection you can feel with a past individual is very interesting.

I am an archaeology student studying at Cardiff university. I love the range of cultures and view points you come across in studying past peoples and their cultures. It really encourages an open mind!

I adore the intersection of sciences and humanities, with specialisations available in osteology, geophysical survey or excavation. The human aspect of archaeology and connection you can feel with a past individual is very interesting.


In applying to university I had to write a personal statement, which I am able to help with.

Across A-levels and University life I have experienced a wide range of examination techniques, under the WJEC (one of the hardest exam boards) and AQA, in addition to practical bone identification exams, presentations and 'court case' style exams requiring on the spot thinking, essay exams, coursework, reports and independent study style work.


I have experience as a student mentor teaching English so can provide as simple explanation as needed in literary and linguistic study.

About my sessions

We will also look at and complete practice questions to get used to writing in the required manner and to implement learned knowledge in a useful manner.

In my own experience of being tutored, what I needed was someone to slowly and clearly breakdown the work and simplify it in a fun way, This is what I aim to do. We will go through at the pace required, and simplify the work so its easy to understand.


We will also look at and complete practice questions to get used to writing in the required manner and to implement learned knowledge in a useful manner.


In historical and classical based studies, sources can be analysed with my help, to help a critical reading technique form.


In geographical studies, much of exam technique is remembering and relevantly applying case studies, which I will create fun quizzes to memorise case studies and complete essay questions to help learn how to implement them.


English language/literature will also include quizzes to help memorise quotes or literary and linguistic techniques required in exam and course work. Additionally, We can read through and analyse together parts of the book or poetry required, helping create a critical stance and showing the tutee what to look for in poetry and novels.
