Hi there!!

Thank you for taking the time to read this - let me tell you a bit about myself!!

My name is Amishta, I am currently in my second year at the University of Nottingham hoping to get into Corporate Law. I am also very in to Politics, I used to be Member of Youth Parliament representing my borough!

I have privately tutored for the past three years now, I do both class and 1-1 sessions, I have also taught in China to mature students!

At University, I am part of the Law, Debate, Politics and Badminton society. Getting into university was a bit of a whirlwind for me as I applied to both US and UK colleges, thus I am also able to give advice on applying to Ivy League colleges but also Oxbridge - having applied to Oxford for Law and sitting the LNAT.

I love teaching, my mother is a teacher thus giving back through education is something that runs in the family! I endeavour to individually cater for my students' needs, this may be by making my lessons more visual, interactive, note based or taking it slow.

About my sessions

   In terms of poetry for English or sources for History I try to allow the student the first go at analysing. I do this because it allows them to get a feel of how exams work.

   In terms of poetry for English or sources for History I try to allow the student the first go at analysing. I do this because it allows them to get a feel of how exams work. I usually time them (around 5 minutes), timing is important especially when analysing because it gets them to practice their time management right from the beginning.

·        Highlighting, colour coding, underlining any techniques used such as emotive language, similes, personification, alliteration etc.. In History, I urge them to draw arrows and draw links to certain events, for example the mention of high society in the French Revolution may mean an arrow and note talking about the different factions such as Girondins etc.

·        I will then go through the text/ source with them. Breaking it up, and in certain situations where there is a deeper meaning I will guide them to come to their own conclusion rather than spoon feeding them.

·        At the start of the next session I offer to recap and will ask them brief questions of the topic covered in the last session, hoping to consolidate any loose information.
