About me

Availability:      Weekdays and evenings. Very flexible.

Exam boards:     Able to tailor sessions to all exam board specifications


Helped three friends get into their chosen university through help and guidance with their personal statement.
- Three years experience supporting children with Asperger syndrome, autism spectrum disorders, Down's syndrome, Global Development Delay and Cerebral Palsy during the summer holidays in mainstream and specialist holiday care settings as a personal learning carer.

Why do I want to support students to achieve their goals?

My desire to tutor stems from my experience as a struggling student of GCSE Maths. My determination to bump up my grade B to a grade A led me to visit a Maths tutor who not only helped me achieve that elusive grade A, but who also instilled in me an attitude to believe in my own ability. I finally achieved the grade A I had worked so hard towards and also left with a heightened sense of positivity and self-belief. I hope to give my students this same experience.

My approach:

In the free 15-minute meet the tutor session, we will discuss how best you feel you absorb new information and highlight your personal strengths and weaknesses so that I am able to produce a highly personalised session plan.

Students of History, Government & Politics and Sociology will regularly encounter intricate theories and events as part of the subject matter. We will work together in our session to disentangle any content that you may be struggling to understand so that you are able to apply the information as examples in future essays and exams.

As a student of arts and humanities, I have developed a strong understanding of varying exam and essay-writing techniques. Prior to our session, I will analyse the requirements of the examination board and devise an essay writing framework in which you can use to practice past exam and essay questions from which I will happily mark and give constructive feedback.

Please inform me of the subject and module that you are studying and with which exam board you will be examined so that I can tailor the session in accord with the demands of the specific examination board.

My style:

I value patience, attentiveness and good listening skills as my three best qualities. I will ensure that you will receive an enjoyable tutoring session in which we will work together to increase your confidence and ability to achieve the elusive grade you desire.

Sophie has been a fantastic tutor through the first A level year. Becky got a B in her AS level and this is hugely thanks to the time and effort Sophie has put in with her. Thanks again.

Great detailed tutorials.

Lada (Student) April 10 2016

Sophie is incredible! She is extremely helpful, she knows literally everything I could possibly ask about the period we studied, and she also helped me to find energy and motivation to write my coursework when I felt like I can't do it. :) I ended up thanking her every message because I am actually truly grateful for all the help I got from her.
