About me

I'm studying English and European Law in London, and I decided to study law because I have a drive to defend people and help those that need it. It is that same drive that lead me to tutoring, to want to help students improve and succeed in the IB. My success in the IB made it so that studying law is not as daunting or difficult. When you succeed in IB, university is a lot easier, and I want to help students succeed so that they too can enter university confidently.

I'm passionate about history and english, which is why I'm excited to be tutoring these subjects. I believe a good tutor has to truly enjoy the subjects they're teaching, and this is definitely the case. When I was an IB student I found that advice from students who had done the IB was often very helpful, and sometimes even more than from a teacher. This is because they could relate to what I was going through, and provided specific insight into studying the IB. I aim to help students both in the course content and also strategies and approaches to examinations and written assignments (IA's).

In regards to my experience and qualifications, I tutored at my old school - a 1st year IB student in English Literature when I was a second year and I tutored Portuguese to elementary students. I scored a total of 42 points with 3 extra points for TOK and EE - and I am happy to tutor for TOK as well. I know how challenging and stressful the IB is, and I want to help make it easier for students to succeed.

About my sessions

I want to deliver my tutoring lessons according to each student's personal needs. At the outset of tutoring someone new, I will ask what areas of content or strategy the student needs help with, and create a clear goal - understood by both the student and me - on what will be achieved by the tutoring lessons. Once this is established, I will aim to prepare lessons that are a mix of theory and practice, in order to keep the student focused and apply the knowledge. It is really important to apply the theory under the supervision of the tutor so that the student can see the progress they are making - it is often uplifting and motivating for the student to see progress happening. Therefore, for each lesson there will be a goal established at its outset, which by the end of the session the student will see has been achieved and progress has been made.

Questions Matilde has answered

How do I create a thesis statement for a poem analysis for the IOC?

For the IOC, it is critical that you create a consistent and coherent argument based on a point you make about the poem - something that you identify is being commented on or criticized in the poem. This will be the subject of your thesis statement. For the IOC your thesis is important because the stronger your thesis is, the stronger your IOC analysis will be. In order to create a thesis statement, you must first analyze the poem. For the IOC, you will be given time to annotate and prepare for the oral commentary. During this time, you should identify common themes and ideas in the poem - patterns - and how language and literary devices are used to create these patterns. Once you identify a theme, or main idea that you see in the poem, you can build your thesis statement. For instance, if the theme of the poem is death, you can make it your main point that the poem is depicting the tragedy of death. However, in order to complete your thesis statement, you will need to identify how the poet uses language and literary devices to establish this idea of tragedy in death, such as by the creation of tone and mood, or the employment of personification or metaphor, etc... Once you have the instruments that prove your main point, you can build a strong thesis. For instance - The poem depicts the tragedy of death via the tone, the extended metaphor and the employment of personification. This way of creating a thesis statement makes it easier for you to structure your oral commentary and ensure that it is focused and not just an analysis of everything that is being said in the poem. Examiners value theme based structures, and it is a way to avoid getting lost and losing the flow while orally delivering your analysis.For the IOC, it is critical that you create a consistent and coherent argument based on a point you make about the poem - something that you identify is being commented on or criticized in the poem.
