I have just completed my first year at the university of Cambridge, studying History, where I achieved a starred first, coming joint top in my year out of c. 170 students.

I have extensive tutoring experience running over 2 years in History, English, and Maths from 11 plus to A2 level. Students I have taught at 11 plus have received offers from top independent schools such as Alleyn's and Dulwich College, as well as interviews from others, including Westminster and King's College.


Having recently completed my A levels and the Oxbridge admissions process, I am in a unique position to offer tailor-made and relevant advice about how to succeed in both exams and academic interviews. I am very much aware about the style of writing and essay structures which are now required of candidates in order to achieve top marks. Beyond this, I would feel comfortable helping with personal statements and university admissions, including tests and interviews.

About my sessions

I look forward to teaching anyone, regardless of their academic level, and I hope that my lessons will help my students not only achieve their goals but also stimulate their intellectual curiosity. I believe that learning should, above all, be interactive and inclusive: my lessons are very much a back-and-forth. This is particularly true of A-level and university admissions, where individual opinion and an ability to consider a question from multiple different angles is crucial for success.

I believe that setting a short amount of homework is an excellent way to measure progress and provide a starting point for each lesson. Whether of not students want to do this is, of course, up to them.
