I’m currently a student at Cambridge University, doing Chinese Studies (which involves a variety of subjects from history to literature and language learning!). I’ve always been particularly passionate about history and languages which I hope comes across in my tutorials and I think makes the learning experience more enjoyable and interesting.
I have experience of teaching in a classroom and one-to-one tutoring, with ages ranging from 4 to 17 years of age. It has taught me to be patient as well as find the method of teaching which best suits each individual student. Having also been through the Oxbridge application system, I definitely understand how demanding it can be and hope that I could pass on some advice and tips to make it seem less daunting.
When it comes to the tutorials, you choose what we cover! Whether there are specific topics that you have trouble understanding or you want to practise answering exam questions or want general tips, we can work it out together.

The Personal Statement can seem daunting and the hardest part is actually getting started!
A good way to go about it is to just put pen to paper- write a few headings like Course Subject, A Level Subjects and Extra-Curriculars (this includes work experience, sports, hobbies, voluntary work or societies that you’ve been involved in).
First off, try and fill in a couple of things under each heading. Under your Course Subject, try and write down a few reasons why you’ve chosen that particular subject, a topic that particularly interests you and any extra reading you’ve done around the subject with a comment/opinion on the content of the reading (this helps to show that your interest extends beyond the classroom).
With your A level subjects, mark down a couple of skills you’ve gained or things you’ve learnt from studying that subject (e.g. Maths- handling data, problem solving or History- analytical thinking). The same applies to your extra-curriculars although the skills that you’ve gained will probably be a little different (e.g. leadership, teamwork, awareness of other cultures etc..).
The point of all this is to be able to show that, not only are you passionate and interested in your chosen course, but you also have these skills which are applicable to your subject. And, overall, demonstrate what a good candidate you are.
Hopefully, by this point, you’ll have gathered enough material to use and can start shaping it into a cohesive and captivating Personal Statement!see more
