About me

I am a second year history student at the University of Cambridge.

I did Maths, Spanish and History A Level, and Chemistry AS Level, and achieved all A* Grades at GCSE. 

I absolutely love teaching and spending time with children. I enjoyed volunteering for two years as a teaching assistant at Springfield's, a school for children with severe learning difficulties. I also volunteered as a primary and secondary school English and Maths teacher in Nepal for 5 weeks this summer.

Whilst I have usually taught large groups of children, I would love the opportunity to focus on the development and learning of one child. I approach any challenge in my academic and personal life with passion and vigour, and would love to be able to direct this energy towards a student's academic success.

About my sessions

I am a great believer that children will only ever effectively learn if they enjoy what they are studying. With this in mind, I use a wide range of exciting teaching methods, introducing interactive games and an element of competition wherever possible.

I have great experience in lesson planning, and believe careful and thorough preparation is absolutely vital. I carefully adapt my lessons to every child's ability, paying close attention to their weaknesses and strengths, and keeping track of their progress by making careful notes. I am excited to start working with a new student soon!

Questions Yasmin has answered

To what extent did opposition pose a problem for the tsarist autocracy in the period 1894-1917?

The most important thing for this question (as with all history essays) is a careful PLAN!General styles of plan: thematic (here: type of problem/social group), chronological.Below is an example of a plan for the chronological question, but it would be useful for the student to go over different possible structures and figure out which one suited their specific knowledge and essay style. INTROBreak down key terms in question eg 'problem'Set out structure and overall argument1st PARAGRAPH (1894-1904)Detail the extent of opposition amongst a variety of social groups (eg peasant riots, worker strikes, disillusionment of the nobility). However, extent of 'problem' limited by a lack of cooperation amongst social groups, lack of development of a revolutionary mindset and continued support of the army for the Tsar.2nd PARAGRAPH (1905)Highlight the significance of the events of Bloody Sunday in the seriousness of opposition to the Tsar- eg development of a general strike with cooperation amongst distinct social and national groups across Russia. Highlight great significance of opposition further in that it forced the Tsar to make concessions (eg DUMA parliament). However, lack of higher organisation and continuation of a key block of troops loyal to the Tsar prevented his overthrow.3rd PARAGRAPH 1906-1917Detail events of the 'Age of the Dumas', and highlight how the Tsar's manipulation of constitutional concessions limited his ability to overcome the criticisms of the opposition. Consideration of how the events of World War One affected his autocracy- low standards of living and morale. Key difference following the war- the loss of the support of the army! Opposition (now united in short-term aims) were able to pose a significant problem to the tsarist autocracy, to the extent that it collapsed.CONCLUSIONDetail argument- summing up extent of problem for each chronological period. Tie together key themes - eg support of army, revolutionary mindset of opposition, extent of unity amongst opposition. Am happy to discuss this further in interview tomorrow (the 9th)!The most important thing for this question (as with all history essays) is a careful PLAN!General styles of plan: thematic (here: type of problem/social group), chronological.Below is an example of a plan for the chronological question, but it would be useful for the student to go over different possible structures and figure out which one suited their specific knowledge and essay style.
