Degree: Chinese (Bachelors) - Oxford, St Hilda's College University
I am a student of Chinese at Oxford University. I've always enjoyed languages, literature and the humanities generally; I firmy believe that anyone can learn a language or write a great essay with the right teacher.
I'm not afraid to put some work in to make sure that you succeed, and I really enjoy engaging and mentoring other students. At my secondary school, I was a senior prefect for Modern Foreign Languages, and my duties included encouraging younger students in their language learning. During my year out, I was a student ambassador at Leeds College of Art, a job which involved me guiding students through college life and the application process.
During my classes, I hope that you will tell me what you're having trouble with, so that together we can outline a dynamic and useful lesson plan.
Language and literature can be really fun, and I hope that this will come across in our sessions. Through context, engaging examples and explanations of underlying principles, I hope to clarify any issues that you're having trouble with. In our classes I will attempt to make the subject come to life; studying shouldn't just be about passing exams, but about enriching your understanding of the world.
I'm applying to Oxbridge. Any advice?
Without a doubt. I successfully applied to Oxford for deferred entry, and although I was 'pooled' to a college which wasn't my first choice, I am very happy with where I am right now. I was lucky enough to receive some brilliant advice during my UCAS application, and I hope to be able to pass on some of that advice to you.
Get in touch!
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Let me know what you're studying, your exam board and the particular areas on which you want to focus in our sessions.
I look forward to talking to you! :)
