About me

Hi, I am Adam. I believe art in all its forms is among the greatest human accomplishments, which is why I study English and Art History. I am particularly enthusiastic about poetry, for example the work of Lorca, Bishop, Hughes, and Hayes, to name a few.


Stressing over IB is a fairly recent memory. The programme can get very difficult, but completing it is equally rewarding. Even in my second year of university, I still find skills I developed in IB useful. I promise that a...

Hi, I am Adam. I believe art in all its forms is among the greatest human accomplishments, which is why I study English and Art History. I am particularly enthusiastic about poetry, for example the work of Lorca, Bishop, Hughes, and Hayes, to name a few.


Stressing over IB is a fairly recent memory. The programme can get very difficult, but completing it is equally rewarding. Even in my second year of university, I still find skills I developed in IB useful. I promise that all the work that goes into it pays off.  


When not reading and writing, I am usually with friends in St Andrews, Edinburgh, Prague, or Mumbai. I am the vice team captain of Ballroom and Latin Dance Society and a social representative of Amnesty International St Andrews. My other interests include politics and the music and life of David Bowie.

About my sessions

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” 

I know this quote by G. B. Shaw from my favorite class in high school. It was there I realised I want to study literature at university, and that no matter one’s background or grades, there always comes a possibility to (re)invent oneself. On MyTutor, I aim to help such possibility flourish through encouraging and friendly teaching.


I will be using whatever it might be that helps you understand the...

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” 

I know this quote by G. B. Shaw from my favorite class in high school. It was there I realised I want to study literature at university, and that no matter one’s background or grades, there always comes a possibility to (re)invent oneself. On MyTutor, I aim to help such possibility flourish through encouraging and friendly teaching.


I will be using whatever it might be that helps you understand the topic: sample papers, colourful mind maps, general tips and tricks I found useful when doing IB (/writing my Personal Statement). I should not be assigning homework unless necessary, in which case they should always take less than 30 minutes.


I believe in not only developing your skills within a particular subject, but in generally improving your writing over time - I am more than happy to go through your papers outside of class in order to provide constructive feedback.


I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed!
