About me

Hello, I am Natalie, a final year Geography student at Durham University and incoming student at Cambridge University where I have received an academic scholarship to complete a masters in Development Studies.


I have now worked for My Tutor for over 2 years, helping range of pupils from Year 9 to A Level. Previously, I have been a teaching assistant and study buddy for KS3 pupils and through my current involvement in Durham University Women in Business I am now part of a Mentor scheme advising younger students about career applications.

I have a widespread interest in geopolitics and how it relates to theory, spanning from contemporary political debates and climate change to more theoretical discussions on globalization and equity. I trust I will be able to pass on my enthusiasm in my tutorials.

About my sessions

Whilst I plan all lessons in advance, I will always start each session asking if the pupil has any specific work or area they want to focus on. This is useful for students who struggle with content more than exam technique or if they have been set a particularly challenging piece of work.


Otherwise I will begin a lesson with a starter question which mirrors the style of exam question they will face. Sometimes this will be a discussion or the student will be given a few minutes to jot down an answer and then feed back to me for us to discuss.


Afterwards, the lesson will either focus on learning course content, going over themes or sections of the exam specification, or it will center on essay plans and exam questions. The format of the lesson is very flexible and will change based on the pupil, their workload and the topic.


I intend to keep lessons interesting and interactive, drawing upon the interests and skills of the pupil.

Questions Natalie has answered

If i'm planning an essay for a question on regeneration in a specific area, how would I organise my paragraphs?

This is a case study focused question, you therefore need to include specific factual infomation about that case within every paragraph.

Generally for long answered questions, you can divide your paragaphs into political, economic, social and environmental. In order to get the highest marks, you need to be synoptic between each point you're making.

For example, if you are talking about the economic impacts of regeneration, you might say that it has positively provided new secondary sector jobs in the short term due to construction and more oppertunities for tiertiary sector jobs in the long term if the regeneration includes retail outlets. However, jobs in retail tend to be relatively low skilled and focus on the younger demographic.

Socially, this may change the demographic composition of the area as young people relocate to find jobs. Since the regeneration fails to include an increase in affordable/suitable/well-located housing, the project may lack long sustainability.

An essay needs to flow and this is helped by connecting points together and showing that each paragraph can be considered from a variety of perspectives.
