About me

I am currently in the second year of my undergraduate degree studying English and History at York University.

Unlike most university students, I wanted to do a joint honours degree because I enjoy such a wide range of disciplines, and given that my degree has helped me to develop skills in many areas, I am very confident in teaching a range of topics within these subjects.

My degree has also given me a lot of experience with essay-writing - something that I put particular emphasis...

I am currently in the second year of my undergraduate degree studying English and History at York University.

Unlike most university students, I wanted to do a joint honours degree because I enjoy such a wide range of disciplines, and given that my degree has helped me to develop skills in many areas, I am very confident in teaching a range of topics within these subjects.

My degree has also given me a lot of experience with essay-writing - something that I put particular emphasis on in my lessons, as with all the subjects I tutor, essay technique is absolutely key.

Not only do I help make these subjects easier for my students, but I hope to encourage them to share in my enthusiasm!

About my sessions

Primarily, I ensure my sessions are centred around the needs of my student, so my preparation is focused on explaining and discussing content or techniques they are struggling with. Given the importance of essay-technique in achieving highly in these subjects, I make essays a big focus of my sessions, often encouraging the student to draft an answer to an essay question during the lesson. I also offer help with revision techniques, as how to revise can be particularly challenging.

Primarily, I ensure my sessions are centred around the needs of my student, so my preparation is focused on explaining and discussing content or techniques they are struggling with. Given the importance of essay-technique in achieving highly in these subjects, I make essays a big focus of my sessions, often encouraging the student to draft an answer to an essay question during the lesson. I also offer help with revision techniques, as how to revise can be particularly challenging.

I think communication is central in ensuring the success of these sessions, and the best way to measure progress is through the student's own confidence in explaining a concept or writing an essay - if they feel confident when before they did not, that is the best sign of progress!

Crucially, I think support and encouragement are key to learning. Reminding a student of their achievements in that area (e.g. the things they have done well in a particular task) is so important, because overcoming barriers is all about confidence! If they feel they have the capacity to improve, then they will.
