About me

My name is Holly and I'm currently reading English at Jesus College, Cambridge University. I finished with a 2.1 (with high 1st in dissertation) at the end of my second year, and I graduated from school in 2014, with 3 A* grades in English, Philosophy and History.

I understand that enthusiasm and personal understanding of each particular child, on the part of the tutor, is the means through which the child's highest possible understanding can be attained. At Cambridge we are entirely absorbed by the technicalities of our degree and so I live and breathe English and as a young undergraduate, I have all the enthusiasm for life, learning and English, that a tutor needs! Passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm for English would be an extremely enjoyable task.

I am applying for a masters following my undergraduate degree at Cambridge and then hope to enter into the publishing industry. 

As a bonus, I am of course a student and so I can be flexible with my hours, as I know keeping a definitive time can be hard for both parents and children!

I hope to speak to you soon!

About my sessions

I tailor completely toward your needs - whether you need help with specific ways of completing your English exams, aid with writing essays, reading and analysing texts, exam techniques, or a proof-reader for essays or coursework.

I have been working as an online English tutor and proof reader for two years now, for students up to degree level. During a gap year I spent in Paris, I worked as an Au Pair, English teacher to local Parisian children and adults and completing a TEFL course. Thus, I am very used to working with children, especially those who don't have English as their first language or find it hard to understand.

Questions Holly has answered

How do I begin writing my personal statement?

The best thing you can do is to start by writing a list, or mindmap, or whatever helps you organise your thoughts. Divide your thoughts into sections - firstly, your academic achievements. Secondly, your personal achievements; sporting, music, artistic. Thirdly - your personal attributes. And fourthly - what it is about your subject that you love, and any particular interests you have within it. Then think about that section - spend some time writing down what it is about it that you love, and any particular extra-curricular things you've done to further your interests in it. Use this as your first paragraph; this is why you are going to university. Once you have this, try to bring the personal attributes, academic achievements, and extra-curricular virtues, within the circle of the subject, and then in association with your potential as a student. Perhaps your dedication to hockey has taught you the value of teamwork, or how to aim for higher than you think you can achieve, but don't be clichéd; tell them why you are unique, because of your commitment. Be confident in yourself; be succinct, but don't be embarrassed about your achievements. You are trying to make the university see how valuable and rounded you would be as a student.
