About me

I believe that as a university student I am best placed to provide tutoring as I can empathise and provide understanding teaching. I can support them through the pressures of education which I am also familiar with, whilst also being authoritative and making sure they are absorbing and learning the content. Education should be a two way street for both student and teacher, and it is my willingness to learn from students as well as teach that makes me well suited to a tutoring role. Additional...

I believe that as a university student I am best placed to provide tutoring as I can empathise and provide understanding teaching. I can support them through the pressures of education which I am also familiar with, whilst also being authoritative and making sure they are absorbing and learning the content. Education should be a two way street for both student and teacher, and it is my willingness to learn from students as well as teach that makes me well suited to a tutoring role. Additionally, my outside interests such as painting, film photography and sports help me to maintain a well-rounded viewpoint, which is essential for History of Art and Spanish. I love my subjects as they are both areas that open your eyes to completely new cultures, people and experiences, and it would be a pleasure to inspire this passion in someone else. On a more practical level, my flexible contact hours would make me more available to students who need extra sessions or would like help with a piece of homework that is proving particularly challenging.

About my sessions

For both subjects it would be ideal if the student could send me list of the areas they need the most help in, as well as a few examples of pieces of work so that I can effectively tailor the lessons to them. Eventually if they want repeat classes I would be happy to look at essays and homework with them.


In terms of History of Art, I would always want to start with an introductory lesson focusing on the skill of essay writing, as this is an essential transferable skill tha...

For both subjects it would be ideal if the student could send me list of the areas they need the most help in, as well as a few examples of pieces of work so that I can effectively tailor the lessons to them. Eventually if they want repeat classes I would be happy to look at essays and homework with them.


In terms of History of Art, I would always want to start with an introductory lesson focusing on the skill of essay writing, as this is an essential transferable skill that can be used throughout their educational experience. I also have found since attending university that many people lack the basic knowledge of how to write a good essay. From then on I would try to teach the basic and most important theories behind each important art movement/artwork in their course. Each week I would write out a set of summary questions to test their learning and progress.


For Spanish, my introductory lesson would focus on their understanding of basic grammar, as a good foundation is essential for language. I would advocate that (depending on level) we speak predominantly in Spanish, as this is really the only way to effectively improve. Each lesson would then focus on specific problem areas the student may have, speaking lessons and a general overview of the main subject areas that their course requires.
