About me

About

I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2018 with a BA in Politics. Whilst at Exeter I was fortunate enough to study with highly respected academics, specialising in public policy and political philosophy. I particularly love the way that reading about new concepts opens up different ways of viewing the world.

About

I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2018 with a BA in Politics. Whilst at Exeter I was fortunate enough to study with highly respected academics, specialising in public policy and political philosophy. I particularly love the way that reading about new concepts opens up different ways of viewing the world. Since graduating I have enrolled on a masters programme at Trinity College of Music where I am studying jazz. I have kept up an interest in academia and have taken a module this year on performance philosophy.


Experience

At school I took Politics A level. Because I felt that I wasn't being prepared for the exams at school particularly well, I decided to get one on one tuition myself. This tuition clarified the course and made me realise the most effective way of studying to be successful in these exams. As a result I achieved 378/400 across the 4 papers. I feel like during this time I was able to acquire the skills to tutor in a clear and effective way.

About my sessions

How I Teach

I'd like to think of myself as friendly, approachable and understanding of the level that students are at. I like to tutor in a way which encourages conversation, helping to build the confidence of students and allowing them to ask questions about anything they might not fully understand.

Lessons

I like to ask before the session which area the student would like to work on so I am able to plan ahead and deliver a focussed and high quality lesson. My lessons will usually centre around a question which the student will be asked on the exam, taken from past papers. Depending on the level of the student, I am able to help with the understanding of the concepts required to answer the question and the best way to achieve the highest marks. If needed then I am also able to discuss any essay writing skills or exam technique which the student would find useful. I also like to incorporate present day examples to make the question relevant to what is going on in the world currently.
