About me

Hello! I'm a first year student at the University of Oxford and I'm reading Geography. I really love my subject for its interdisciplinary nature; I am exposed to so many different forms of knowledge and various topics for example my lectures from this term ranged from The Ethics of Drone Warfare to Geomorphology of non-Earth Planets.


I am really passionate about findings ways to learn and study that work for you individually and am well equipped to tutor a range of subjects including English, Geography, Spanish and Biology. We can track progress by assessing how comfortable you personally feel about specific topics as all quantitatively through marking your answers to practice questions. Whatever you need to help you learn and improve, I will do my best to provide.

About my sessions

Initially I'd like to establish which areas within the subject need the most attention so that the sessions can be structured in such a way that they are most effective to my students.


After picking out key areas, I would like to for the technical aspects of different subjects such as Spanish Grammar and Biological processes to go over explanations of these in a way that makes sense to the student and in a way that they will be able to retain this knowledge going forward.


However, once all the underpinning knowledge is secure in the various areas of concern, the main way in which the lessons will be structured is through the framework of practice exam-style questions as I feel that learning proper exam technique and how to apply knowledge is a crucial part of achieving high exam success.


In order to measure progress, I would like to qualitatively assess this through conversations with the student about what they are most and least confident in (and tracking how this changes over the course of the sessions) as well as quantitatively assess progress through marking answers to practice questions.

Questions Sarina has answered

Describe and Explain Debt Relief with an example of a debt relief initiative.

Debt relief is the partial or total remission of debt by the lending body. Debt relief reduces economic disparity by decreasing vulnerability to shocks and promoting development as there is more money, that no longer needs to be repaid as debt, to go to key socio-economic initiatives such as those that improve education, women's rights and health. However it is important to note that re-accumulation of debt is a significant issue and therefore, in the long term the process of lending should be scrutinised and re-evaluated in order to make it more financially responsible and less exploitative. A key example of a debt relief initiative is the World Bank and the IMF's 'Heavily Indebted Poor Countries' (HIPC) initiative in which partial or total relief and reduction was offered to countries that met specific criteria. These criteria included having an unsustainable debt burden and evidence of the previous establishment of IMF/WB programmes.Debt relief is the partial or total remission of debt by the lending body.
