Hi! My name's Hayley, and I'm in my second year of studying Linguistics at Homerton College, Cambridge.


As well as knowing first-hand what the experience of applying to Oxbridge is like, I have previous experience mentoring sixth-form students with their Oxbridge applications and personal statements. I am part of Cambridge's selective CAMbassador scheme, where I help lead talks and workshops, and run open days and interviews. Through this, I have lots of experience informing and advising students on all aspects of the application process, including course choice, college choice, interviews, personal statements and admission tests. I also volunteer with my sixth form to offer individual advice to students applying to Oxbridge and other top tier universities for a wide range of subjects.


I'm TEFL-certified, for which I had to complete a course on teaching methods and techniques. I also spent 4 weeks this summer working as a full-time teacher in China, teaching English as a second language. This has given me lots of experience on preparing effective, tailored and engaging lessons.

About my sessions

The best part about tutoring is that I'm able to individualise sessions to really meet the needs of the student. This means that we can establish and work on the specific skills or aspects of the course which the student might be struggling with, and that I can provide the student with detailed, individual feedback.


In my sessions, I will aim to:

-Design a clear timeline and schedule for the student's progress, so they know what they need to do to achieve what...

In my sessions, I will aim to:

-Design a clear timeline and schedule for the student's progress, so they know what they need to do to achieve what they want.

-Tailor my teaching style to the individual needs of the student, and the way in which they learn most effectively.

-Track the student's progress, so that they can recognise areas which they are struggling with. This will be really helpful during revision, as they will be able to focus on these areas.

-Create a relaxed learning environment, where the student feels comfortable asking questions and making contributions.

-Provide individualised and helpful feedback on the student's work.

-Prepare a range of example questions, which will allow the student to practice their skills and go into the exam feeling confident.

-Improve exam technique by working on aspects like essay/answer structuring and timings.
