About me

About Me -  Hi, my name is Ellie and I am a medical student at southampton. I also have a history degree from oxford university. I am 22 and have loved both my subjects every step of the way. I think that a huge part of medicine is being able to explain things to people in a way that is suitable for them, so I believe that I can really utilise that skill in my tutoring. For every subject that I have offered to tutor I have a qualification at least one grade higher than the level I am tutoring so I should be able to really explore and understand the subject.  I have some tutoring experience from my time at oxford university, where I tutored kids to help them get into the secondary school of thier choice.  About the sessions -  I think that a really important part of these sessions is that you as the tutee is engaged in what your doing, so I'd like to discuss with you how you enjoy learning. I understand that some people learn through repitition but there are ways of making this more interesting. I also recognise that some people find it easier to learn by reading something, some by watching something, and some by writing it out themself, whichever way you prefer we can adapt the sessions to help you feel like you are making the most of your time. Personally I find having a goal really important for motivation, so I like to say 'by the end of these 6 weeks I will have covered .....'. Enjoyment is key, and I want to ensure you enjoy your sessions as much as you can.  What next? If you think that I might be able to help you, or just want to know more, arrange a free 'Meet the Tutor Session' or send me a Webmail through this website. Including a bit of information about what you need help with is always useful especially if you know your exam board.  I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Eleanor has answered

How do I make my personal statement stand out?

It is very easy with a personal statement to be too cheesy and effusive. Instead of overthinking it just write in clear plain English, that way you can fit more information in and appear mature. Try to really think about a personal feature about your subject that you like rather than sticking to the cliche.

How do I tackle a source based paper?

Source based paper's are often what student's find the most difficult despite the fact that most of what they need to know is in front of them. When answering a source based question a little bit of extra knowledge is great but too much takes away from the point of the exercise. They want you to evaluate the source, not demonstrate how much you have memorised. So for this one really stick to what you can actually see or read and only add in personal knowledge when it is directly relevant to the point you are trying to make.

How important are case studies?

Case studies will form the backbone of your Geography GCSE. It is worth creating a short summary for each case study you cover throughout the year. That way when you come to revision they are in a format that is easy to go over rather than having to wade through notes to find the relevant details.
