About me

I'm a History and Politics undergraduate at the University of St Andrews. I achieved A*/A Grades in all of my GCSEs and A Levels. My GCSE results were achieved by being organised and working hard. My A Level results were further enhanced by my love of the subjects I took, namely History, Politics and Classical Civilisation. Now, at university, I am an active member of the History and Performing Arts Societies.

About my sessions

As a tutor I know that creating a supportive yet challenging environment, sensitive to each student's needs, is essential to ensuring the greatest benefits are achieved. Beyond this, a foundation of knowledge is essential for doing well in exams but, with both GCSEs and A Levels, exam technique is the most important factor in boosting grades.

Exam technique is best developed through exam question practice and this is an excellent way for students to develop the confidence to answer...

As a tutor I know that creating a supportive yet challenging environment, sensitive to each student's needs, is essential to ensuring the greatest benefits are achieved. Beyond this, a foundation of knowledge is essential for doing well in exams but, with both GCSEs and A Levels, exam technique is the most important factor in boosting grades.

Exam technique is best developed through exam question practice and this is an excellent way for students to develop the confidence to answer questions to the best of their ability in both continuous assessment assignments and in formal exams. Furthermore, with this confidence comes a reduction in anxiety and the associated improvement in outcomes.

My tutor sessions will typically be structured as follows:

1 Refresher of the previous session

2 Discussion covering challenges being encountered in course material and/or the demands of assessment.

3 Essay and exam question planning

4 A recap and summary of learning to be taken from the session

5 Planning and preparation for the next session

Beyond this typical structure, I understand every student learns differently. I am flexible in my approach to sessions, ensuring they best fit each individual student's journey towards being the best they can be.

Finally, I am still close enough to my own experience of GCSEs and A Levels, whilst that bit further on my academic journey, to be of greatest benefit to my students.
