About me

About Me: I am a Politics student at Exeter University. I absolutely love my degree but share an equal interest in English, which I studied up until this point. I have been tutoring students of all ages for 4 years and so have great experience.  I am patient and friendly and have taught students of all abilities; from people who get it right away, to people who need a bit more time. That’s what I’m here for: going over what you need to at your own pace until you feel confident.

The UCAS process can be a daunting one, and applying to Unis can seem very confusing! Very important in this process is your Personal Statement- it’s how you show potential Universities who you are and what you’re about. I’ve been through this rigorous process and have come out of the other side and have read hundreds of Personal Statements through doing that. Hopefully after my help it will seem more achievable and less overwhelming and we will sort you out a statement that can really show course admins what you’re made of!

What next? If you have any questions, you can send me a ‘Webmail’ through my profile or book a ‘Meet the Tutor’ session to ask more questions about how I can help. There we’ll chat about what you’d like to achieve through the sessions and plan some goals for our first tutorial!

About my sessions

Most importantly, during the sessions, you will guide what we cover. Whether it’s a Maths topic you just don’t quite get, a book that seems beyond you or some political theory that feels impossible, we will take the sessions at a pace that is right for you. I will use as many different ways (diagrams, words, analogies) as possible to explain a concept or idea, until you are confident enough that you can explain it back to me. I hope the sessions will be fun! It’s an opportunity for you to ask as many questions as you need to about a certain topic in a safe environment until you are truly self-assured.

Emily, I don't have any happy words for the way in which you treated Amber, by being absent from two appointments which were badly needed before two of her GCSE exams. This left her without the tuition she really needed, when she needed it most. When we were choosing a tutor you replied enthusiastically and sounded so committed. It started off well, but sadly, it would seem that you don't have the required sense of commitment to see the job through. After the first disaster, just before an exam when your wifi at university was 'down' all day, we knew something was wrong, but felt it was too late in the day to switch tutors. We hoped it was a one-off, but sadly it wasn't. You will surely understand the consequences to Amber and how this could influence whether she passes her exams? Therefore I can only surmise that you didn't respect her as a student, or me as a parent. You didn't give Amber her tuition, but I would like to offer you some life lessons: 1) Solving a problem by avoiding a commitment, does not solve the problem. It only turns your problem into someone else's problem. 2) It is professional to be honest and reliable. That involves giving people advance notice to change or cancel an appointment. This will cause disappointment, but leaves the student with enough time to make a 'Plan B.' This is far better than the chaos that ensued when you left your student on limbo, waiting for your lessons to begin. 3) If you don't enjoy tutoring, leave it to those who really want to do it. 4) Exclamation marks don't make everything okay!!!! Sincerely, Michelle

very bad quality. Sound is off and there are constantly cuts and pauses.
