About me

I am a History undergraduate at Cambridge. History is an amazing subject that you can explore and use to learn to debate and write persuasively. It has a interdisciplinary approach therefore within it you can study classics, philosophy and sociology. I also study languages with my degree such as Arabic and German. Within my degree, I currently specialise In European history and modern British history and South Asian history.

I have experience in mentoring as I am involved in project access, a recently new initiative that required me to be a mentor to A level students who have concerns about applying to University and achieving their grades. It has helped me engage with others in effective ways. I am very flexible and happy to read up on subject topics that the student would like to explore. I have also learned to teach in a variety of ways therefore I am adaptable to what the student requires. This can be anything from revision, specific topics, exams or general enquiries. Additionally, I can help with University applications, especially Oxbridge as I have done presentations at Oxbridge conferences around the UK and am involved in access. This included helping at residential, doing mock interviews and essay preparation therefore I am aware of changes to the application process that are going on. Also, having taken exams myself, I am aware of tips and tricks that can maximise a students mark.

About my sessions

I will structure my lessons by focusing on what the student wants to work on. I will give them an overview/ mini presentation of a topic and and then work on things they are not sure of such as school work or things we have discussed. From this I will work on their strengths and weaknesses. We will work on exam papers, techniques and how to answer different questions in different ways. I encourage students to do extra- research to help improve their grades. I will support them by giving them...

I will structure my lessons by focusing on what the student wants to work on. I will give them an overview/ mini presentation of a topic and and then work on things they are not sure of such as school work or things we have discussed. From this I will work on their strengths and weaknesses. We will work on exam papers, techniques and how to answer different questions in different ways. I encourage students to do extra- research to help improve their grades. I will support them by giving them new resources such as podcasts, documentaries, and knowledge from my own degree that they may want to use to stand out in their exams. Furthermore, I will monitor the students progress by short quizzes and essay outlines so I know they are on the right track.
