About me

Hi, my name’s Ellen! I’m a Cambridge student studying Human, Social and Political Sciences and specialising in Politics and International Relations. These, as well as English Literature, are subjects that I love because they let me play with ideas and experiment with arguments which have the potential to completely change my worldview. I enjoy discussing concepts and ideologies, and how they can impact our emotions and daily lives.

Hi, my name’s Ellen! I’m a Cambridge student studying Human, Social and Political Sciences and specialising in Politics and International Relations. These, as well as English Literature, are subjects that I love because they let me play with ideas and experiment with arguments which have the potential to completely change my worldview. I enjoy discussing concepts and ideologies, and how they can impact our emotions and daily lives.


When I did my exams and applied to uni, I was pretty nervous! But my teachers helped me improve and stay motivated so that I could further my academic achievements, for which I received multiple awards at my sixth form and secondary school. In following their example, I have delivered friendly, structured and tailored sessions to students as a teacher and a mentor. As your tutor, I will provide the same.

What makes a great essay? The ability to weave a sophisticated argument throughout your prose will make your work convincing and stand out to an examiner. This, as well as in-depth subject knowledge and a good understanding of the mark scheme requirements, will result in higher grades and a fulfilling learning experience.


In the free session we will look at your strengths, aims and what you could do with improving. Our lessons will cover specialised topics and incorporate quizzes, plans, timed essays and more – depending on how best you learn – which will be also used to assess your progress. There will be plenty of time to explore the nuances and implications of your topics, which can help deepen your understanding and improve your intellectual curiosity. Subjects like Politics, in all their complexity, have no single correct perspective and are best enjoyed through in-depth evaluation and inquiry. 


I needed help getting ideas down on paper at school, so I took this advice and pushed myself through many mock essays. These techniques, and a deep understanding about the implications and nuances of the topics, didn’t come easy at first. But by practicing and learning, I was able to get the grades I wanted - and I can help you do the same.
