About me

Hi, I'm Annabel. I'm a graduate of the University of Oxford having received a first class BA in History. I have a varied academic background, having studied mathematics (including further mathematics modules), chemistry, physics, and history at A-level. One-quarter of my first year at university was also spent studying a mathematics module. Having a strong STEM background is quite rare for a humanities student, but I feel that it has allowed me to develop a very diverse tutoring style.

I have been tutoring for around 7 years now, most often tutoring students in maths and science GCSEs and history A-level, but I also tutored 11+ students for a number of years so I am happy to consider requests for 11+ tutoring also.

After applying to university and receiving offers from top universities (including Oxford and LSE) I began to tutor students for university admission - both Oxbridge and non-Oxbridge. To date, I have a 100% success rate at getting students into their first choice universities, and have tutored students for entry in the following subjects: History, PPE, Mathematics and Finance, and Biochemistry.

About my sessions

I don't have a specific, rigid tutoring approach. I think it is important to get to know a student first and see what methods work best for them and adapt my tutoring accordingly. However, there are two tactics that I use across the board. Targeted feedback - a student can't improve unless they know what their specific weaknesses are and how to attack them. Interactive tutoring, as I don't believe that students learn well by just listening to a tutor talk. An example of a combination of these two tactics is asking a student to compare their answer with a model answer and discuss with me what they think the similarities are and what the differences are and how they might incorporate these changes in their own work.

My sessions vary in style depending on whether I am asked to help a student study for a specific exam or if they would just like some more general sessions to help them with a subject. If I'm tutoring for a specific exam I think it is important to look at exam technique as well as knowledge; I take care to research the exams of my students to make sure that sessions are tailored to their exam board and specification. In both cases I work through exam questions with students, so that they can consolidate their knowledge, and so that I can measure their progress. I also think that confidence is key to academic performance, so another way I measure progress is through the confidence of my students.
