About me

Any student looking for tutoring has a desire to learn better and understand more, I’m the same. I studied English (language and literature) and Economics, among other things, at A-level and absolutely loved them. As an English student at the University of Nottingham I’ve realised how impactful the enthusiasm of my teachers was.

I was encouraged to puzzle out the reasons for things, the logical thinking and processing – understanding rather than simply learning – meant I went into exams...

Any student looking for tutoring has a desire to learn better and understand more, I’m the same. I studied English (language and literature) and Economics, among other things, at A-level and absolutely loved them. As an English student at the University of Nottingham I’ve realised how impactful the enthusiasm of my teachers was.

I was encouraged to puzzle out the reasons for things, the logical thinking and processing – understanding rather than simply learning – meant I went into exams and assignments with a confident grasp on the topic. Taking the time with students to develop this comprehensive knowledge of the content, I hope to instil the same confidence and, dare I say it, enjoyment of the subject.

Economics isn’t just ‘maths with people’; an English lesson doesn’t have to ruin your favourite book. By working with students to build confidence and understanding, I will help them develop the skills they need to both succeed in and enjoy their subjects.

About my sessions

I know how important it is for students to get teaching that fits their learning style and requirements, and no matter how skilled a school teacher, providing a personally tailored lesson is virtually impossible when working with a class full of students. With this in mind, my Online Lessons will be guided by the needs and goals of the student. An open conversation with the student in the lead up to the lesson will allow me to get an understanding of what would be most effective and beneficia...

I know how important it is for students to get teaching that fits their learning style and requirements, and no matter how skilled a school teacher, providing a personally tailored lesson is virtually impossible when working with a class full of students. With this in mind, my Online Lessons will be guided by the needs and goals of the student. An open conversation with the student in the lead up to the lesson will allow me to get an understanding of what would be most effective and beneficial, both in terms of topics and styles, and I’ll use this to structure the lesson.

As a base template; lessons will cover any course material the student feels they would benefit from reviewing, followed by a discussion of how to structure answers to related exam questions and a supported practice answer. This of course is only a suggestion of a lesson structure. If the student would benefit more from an in-depth exploration of a topic, troubleshooting a recent assessment, a guided tour of a past paper or anything else specific, the lesson will reflect this.

I'm also happy to read through personal statements for university applications, practice essays and the like and providing formative feedback!

My main aim is to create a calm and non-judgemental learning environment, in which the student will feel able to explore their subject and gain confidence in their own skills.
