About me

Hello! My name is Laura, I'm 18 and would like to share my knowledge and love of my subjects.

-I am in my first year studying Geography at Cambridge University. I love Geography; it allows you to explore and understand many facets of the World around you and I want to inspire my students to enjoy the subject too.

-I am also confident in tutoring Maths and allowing students to feel that sense of satisfaction when they finally solve equations or understand something tricky. Although many people dislike Maths and find it difficult I want to encourage my students to have fun and especially build up the confidence of girls in Maths, as often they struggle due to self-doubt in a male dominated subject.

-For people applying to Oxbridge for Geography I would help with pre-interview assessment tests and interview prep after having gone through the process myself last year.

-In my A-levels I studied Geography, Maths, Further Maths and Physics and achieved 4 A*s.

-In my GCSE’s I achieved 10 A*s and an A** in Further Maths.

About my sessions

For my sessions I will aim to:

-Teach valuable knowledge to my students and help them understand topics which they are struggling with.

-Work on exam technique such as answer structuring, exam timing, logical sequencing and essay writing.

-Track lesson progress so when revising for exams, specific topics which they found tricky can have extra focus and to make sure my student has a well rounded education of the subject.

-Tailoring my tutoring to suit my student for example vocalising and talking through answers, brainstorming, quizzing, visual activities or writing answers. Each student will find specific ways of working best for them so I can help them discover what works for them or focus on what they already know is useful.

-Inspiring my student to enjoy the subject and want to learn more.

-Building up the confidence of my students so they can trust their judgement when answering questions.

Questions Laura has answered

How do conservative plate boundaries cause earthquakes?

-Tectonic plates (which can be either continental or oceanic) slide past each other either in opposite directions or in the same direction but at different speeds-This causes friction between the plates to build up and create tensions and stresses between the plates where they catch against one another-These tensions are released suddenly and cause seismic waves to spread out from the focus of the earthquake-The point on land above the focus is called the epicentre of the earthquake-An example of this is the San Andreas Fault line in Southern California where the Pacific plate is moving in the opposite direction to the North American plate causing approximately 10,000 very small earthquakes a year with only about 20 being above magnitude 4.-Tectonic plates (which can be either continental or oceanic) slide past each other either in opposite directions or in the same direction but at different speeds-This causes friction between the plates to build up and create tensions and stresses between the plates where they catch against one another-These tensions are released suddenly and cause seismic waves to spread out from the focus of the earthquake-The point on land above the focus is called the epicentre of the earthquake-An example of this is the San Andreas Fault line in Southern California where the Pacific plate is moving in the opposite direction to the North American plate causing approximately 10,000 very small earthquakes a year with only about 20 being above magnitude 4.
