About me

Hello! I’m a music undergraduate at Oxford, keen to tutor both music students and a range of other subjects. My first instrument is singing, a love which developed at school, where I was lucky enough to be surrounded by other people who get as excited as I do about choral singing and musicals! As well as peer-to-peer maths tutoring at school, I have taught piano to a variety of ages, and firmly believe that studying for any qualification can be a constructive and rewarding experience.

Hello! I’m a music undergraduate at Oxford, keen to tutor both music students and a range of other subjects. My first instrument is singing, a love which developed at school, where I was lucky enough to be surrounded by other people who get as excited as I do about choral singing and musicals! As well as peer-to-peer maths tutoring at school, I have taught piano to a variety of ages, and firmly believe that studying for any qualification can be a constructive and rewarding experience.

As part of the first cohort to do the new A-Levels, I really understand the challenges that current students are facing. I was lucky enough to have a network of people who inspired and supported my studies, and I would love to pass that on through tutoring.

About my sessions

I like to focus my teaching on the individual, tailored to the specific needs of each subject area. My sessions would start off focusing on subject content, before moving onto essay and exam technique, to help build up confidence and familiarity with example papers.

Studying music, one of the main challenges is balancing the need to excel at multiple components, and write essays without losing sight of the original musical content. When looking at a set work, I initially focus on context, before moving onto analysis and musical content, and then combining the two within an exam essay framework.

With GCSE subjects, practice papers are the most effective way to build students’ ability to respond in a pressurised exam situation. Sessions would focus on particular topics or skills that students want to improve or extend, beginning with general content and shorter questions, before moving onto discussion of how to tackle longer-style answers.
