About me

Hi! I'm a recent graduate from the University of Cambridge. I studied History and achieved a First Class degree, and I love sharing my passion for knowledge and education with students.


My university experience has taught me how to clearly present different ideas in an engaging manner, whilst not over-complicating content. Having achieved all A and A* grades in 4 A-Levels, and all A* grades in 12 GCSEs, I am very quick to identify effective ways of answering exam questions.


I have experience giving advice to students from GCSE level to University undergraduates, helping them to improve their learning and writing techniques. I am also a firm believer that to do well in a subject, it has to be interesting! I aim to inspire students as much as I help them to improve their grades.


My hobbies include dance, sport, political debate, and walks along the beach. I love trying new things - for example, in my final year at university, I joined the Ice Hockey team, which was a learning experience to say the least!

About my sessions

I will adapt my classes based on what you would most like to improve, and most importantly, based on your learning style.

I use lots of interactive teaching methods, such as reading articles, watching short videos, analysing images, whiteboards, and more.

If you need help with revision strategies, I have tried and tested many over the years, from flashcards to 'memory palaces'! Once we figure out how you learn, we'll see which methods suit you best.

I will base my content on your school curriculum and exam board to make sure that everything you learn is useful.

I can mark your work and give advice for improvement.

I will give you small, achievable pieces of work to prepare for each tutoring session, so that we can make the most of our time!

Questions Natalia has answered

How do I answer 6-mark questions? Eg. "Explain why Tsar Nicholas II had become unpopular by early 1917."

The best way to answer these types of questions is to make several points, and give each one a short explanation. That way you're getting marks for the knowledge AND the analysis.I would suggest that you make 3 points. Let's think of them first:1) A movement against the Tsarist autocracy had been building since 1905, and revolutionary groups were becoming stronger.2) The Tsar was Commander in Chief of the army, but there were many defeats at the front while he was in charge.3) In the winter of 1916–17 there was starvation due to food shortages, and so strikes and demonstrations broke out.Now think of WHY each point made the Tsar unpopular, to make a full answer:Firstly, a movement against the Tsarist autocracy had been building since 1905, and revolutionary groups were becoming stronger. The Tsar was therefore losing popularity over time because he represented an outdated and inefficient system of government which many students and progressive politicians wanted to replace.Secondly, the Tsar was Commander in Chief of the army, and there were many defeats at the front while he was in charge. This made him lose the trust of the military and of the nation since he was seen as directly responsible for deaths of Russians in battle, and national humiliation at the hand of the Germans.Finally, in the winter of 1916–17 there was starvation due to food shortages, and so strikes and demonstrations broke out. People resented the Tsar for not solving their hardships and not leading the country efficiently, and so by 1917 the autocracy was the most unpopular it had ever been.This answer would give you full marks. In fact, even if you just explained two of the points, you could get all 6 marks, but writing three means that you've got a backup in case one of the points goes a bit wrong.The best way to answer these types of questions is to make several points, and give each one a short explanation.
