About me

In addition to my History degree I keep myself busy at university by playing a lot of netball - captaining my college team - and getting involved in many socities. Last year some of the main projects I took on were becoming Features Editor for The Cambridge Student Newspaper, managing the Art and Design aspect of Christ's College May Ball and becoming Design Officer for The Fitzwilliam Museum Society.

I have substantial experience of tutoring and teaching: I have tutored GCSE maths and AS History in the past, and spent 5 weeks this summer teaching English in Hong Kong. I am also in a position to tutor Philosophy up to A-Level - a subject I am extremely passionate about and in which I achieved 100% across my AS and A-Level. I also have experience in tutoring Oxbridge preparation. Having been selected for competitve summer schools at both Oxford and Cambridge in Year 12, I gained extra insights as to the application process which hopefully will enable me to offer you advice you won't find elsewhere. As a final year student I have a deep understanding of my own subject and can pass on the advice I have received from some of the top academics in the world on essay technique. In my sessions I will encourage you to think as we are taught to at Oxbridge so that in your exams and university applications you can show the examiner those creative insights that are the mark of an exceptional student. In short, my sessions will be fun, engaging and effective!

How can I move my answer up from an A to an A*?

If you are working at an A standard you have demonstrated you have the knowledge; the main difference between an A and an A* lies in how you present that information.

Make sure you offer an answer to the question, clearly stating what you think and convincingly backing up your answer rather than just listing what other people have argued.

Give a sense of evaluation; rather than listing answers or facts indicate which you think is the most important reason and why.

What is Wittgenstein's theory of language games and how can I use it in a question?

Wittgenstein's theory is that language is like a game: you can only get involved if you know the rules of the game. In the same way that you could only play chess if you knew how each piece could be moved, you can only use language if you understand the meaning assigned to each word. Words hav...

Wittgenstein's theory is that language is like a game: you can only get involved if you know the rules of the game. In the same way that you could only play chess if you knew how each piece could be moved, you can only use language if you understand the meaning assigned to each word. Words have hidden connotations so that we can only understand the meaning of a sentence if we are playing the right 'game'. This is useful in your religious language unit as a way of undermining scientific criticisms of religious statements - the scientists are not playing the same game and so misinterpret the statement 'Jesus rose from the dead'. They read it as a scientific truth claim which goes against all prior experience and thus seems completely unfounded. However a religious person understands that the real meaning of this sentence is to convey the promise of eternal life, salvation, opportunity of redemption through Jesus Christ and so on.
