I am a music scholar at Oxford University and musical director of the Oxford Belles - Oxford's original all female a capella group. The music course at Oxford offers a wide range of subjects to study from composition to Global Hip Hop and I love studying all areas of the music world, whilst exploring different ways of approach and analysis. To understand and enjoy history of music you have to look to other areas - my love of the visual arts informs my own understanding and I enjoy bringing these worlds together. I am an active member of the college music society, am the gender equality officer and love working with and talking to other people. Communicative skills are important to me and I know that I can enthuse and encourage younger students especially in their music and history of art studies. At school I found that having one-to-one tutorials in my music studies was incredibly helpful in deepening my musical knowledge and my ability to communicate my ideas - I would work to help school students to develop their own confidence in this way and further deepen their understanding of their subject. This would inevitably help them in their own academic study, schoolwork and hopefully exams!

About my sessions

The aim is to help my students develop understanding, knowledge and confidence in their own subject, and to work on specific areas where the student is in need of extra support. I will create a structure that allows consistent learning and progress, and in studying a specific area I will often begin my lessons with discussing the contexts and essential information around the subject, for example the period in which a painting (in history of art) or musical work was composed. I will then go in...

The aim is to help my students develop understanding, knowledge and confidence in their own subject, and to work on specific areas where the student is in need of extra support. I will create a structure that allows consistent learning and progress, and in studying a specific area I will often begin my lessons with discussing the contexts and essential information around the subject, for example the period in which a painting (in history of art) or musical work was composed. I will then go into further study where my student needs focus, and my lessons will always be open to the questions and queries of the student. I will set manageable homework when complementary to their schoolwork, and measuring progress might include tests and quizzes. Keeping a positive student-tutor relationship is very important to me, and I will ensure that my students feel that they can ask any questions, and explore all areas of their study.
