About me

Hi! I’m Izzy, and I am a graduate from Oxford, where I studied Geography and received a First. I'm currently taking a gap year from education before I start my Masters in International Development at Cambridge, and while I'm not focusing on my own academic career I'd love to help with yours!

Hi! I’m Izzy, and I am a graduate from Oxford, where I studied Geography and received a First. I'm currently taking a gap year from education before I start my Masters in International Development at Cambridge, and while I'm not focusing on my own academic career I'd love to help with yours!

I like learning about what makes the world work the way it does socially, environmentally, economically and politically. During my degree, I specialised in culture, nature and the environment (especially natural disasters), and economics. These built on my A-level knowledge of politics, and world history.

I first considered Oxford when I went on a school trip to the college I ended up attending in Year 12. During my time there, I helped the admissions team with Q&A sessions and tours. I've gained a lot of insight into the admissions process from both ends: both what it’s like to be an applicant, and how it is all handled by admissions team. Now I have also been through the Cambridge admissions process as a graduate, I would love to help you start your Oxbridge journey by working together on your personal statement, TSA preparations, and interview preparations.

I can't wait to meet you!

About my sessions

Once I receive an tutoring request, especially a topic specific one, I immediately begin searching through my notes and past papers for any reference to this topic to refresh myself on the overarching themes and the finer points of the topic in question. Following this review, I will begin structuring a proposed lesson as follows: first, background and definitions, second, a breakdown of the major points of the topic, third, an explanation of this topic's major interactions with other top...

Once I receive an tutoring request, especially a topic specific one, I immediately begin searching through my notes and past papers for any reference to this topic to refresh myself on the overarching themes and the finer points of the topic in question. Following this review, I will begin structuring a proposed lesson as follows: first, background and definitions, second, a breakdown of the major points of the topic, third, an explanation of this topic's major interactions with other topics, and finally a critical breakdown of the topic - engaging with other points of view and criticisms. This comprehensive lesson plan would be my primary starting point. However, during the actual lesson, this functions more as a general structure: the actual lesson would be more fluid, following your interests, questions, and shoring up difficulties. I will help students achieve your goals by focusing on letting you define the amounts of time spent on each topic and to learn more about your weak points, while still covering the entire topic. This process seeing improvements in your weaker areas is the primary way I, and you, will measure progress. It also encourages learning by showing that even the most difficult topics can be learned with a bit of extra focus. Oxbridge related sessions will be approached similarly, taking into account your specific concerns as outlined before our session, and focused particularly on improving your level of confidence during the admissions process.
