About me

I recently graduated from Durham University (June 2018) with a BSc (Hons) in Geography, where I achieved a First Class Honours and developed a strong passion for the study of the discipline. In particular, I have developed interests in climate change, environmental governance, natural hazards and glacier/ice sheet development, due to their interdisciplinarity and relevance in understanding challenges facing contemporary society.

I recently graduated from Durham University (June 2018) with a BSc (Hons) in Geography, where I achieved a First Class Honours and developed a strong passion for the study of the discipline. In particular, I have developed interests in climate change, environmental governance, natural hazards and glacier/ice sheet development, due to their interdisciplinarity and relevance in understanding challenges facing contemporary society. I am excited at the opportunity to use my interests in such topics to promote the development and interests of other aspiring geographers. 


I believe my passion for the discipline, as well as my patient and encouraging nature, enables me to be a successful tutor. I have demonstrated successful tutoring abilities through my role as Peer Mentor during Sixth Form, where I conducted one-to-one sessions with students on various subjects. Furthermore, I have developed transferrable teaching skills through my roles of a Community Sports Leader and Swimming Teacher, which have enabled me to articulate approaches to different people. I will apply these skills to ensure all my students improve through enjoyable and engaging lessons.


I can conduct sessions on improving subject knowledge/understanding, exam technique, essay writing and university admissions (however, this list is not exclusive!).


I look forward to hearing from you.

About my sessions

My lessons will be structured entirely around your needs. I appreciate that every study learns at a different pace and has a different response to teaching styles, therefore I will articulate my approach to fit the needs of every student.

I will initially gather an understanding of what the student hopes to achieve from the lessons and their knowledge of the subject. This will enable me to conduct personalised lessons that are time efficient and targeted at areas the student feels needs...

My lessons will be structured entirely around your needs. I appreciate that every study learns at a different pace and has a different response to teaching styles, therefore I will articulate my approach to fit the needs of every student.

I will initially gather an understanding of what the student hopes to achieve from the lessons and their knowledge of the subject. This will enable me to conduct personalised lessons that are time efficient and targeted at areas the student feels needs improving. The following lessons will then build upon these objectives through targeted lessons to ensure the student is progressing well.


Each targeted lesson will begin by having a brief recap of the previous lesson, which will be followed by an introduction of the lesson’s intended aims and outcomes. The content of the lessons will consist of verbal material, assisted by diagrams and other supporting material (including games, timed tests, past papers, worksheets etc.), to ensure all topics are covered in detail. They will also consist of practice questions, which will be aimed at improving understanding of the topic and developing exam technique.


The lessons will conclude by outlining the topic of the following lesson and providing advice on useful additional materials. This will be essential in providing context to the lesson and in enabling the student to establish links between topics, which will help the students’ wider development.
