About me

I am a fresh graduate from the University of Oxford, where I gained a first in English Language and Literature. I am passionate about learning and teaching, and this extends across English, History, and into other areas of the humanities. I believe in the potential of every student to think creatively and challenge themselves, and one-to-one tutoring can bring the best out of even the most essay-shy 15 year old.

I am a fresh graduate from the University of Oxford, where I gained a first in English Language and Literature. I am passionate about learning and teaching, and this extends across English, History, and into other areas of the humanities. I believe in the potential of every student to think creatively and challenge themselves, and one-to-one tutoring can bring the best out of even the most essay-shy 15 year old. Since sixth form I have tutored several students in English, History and Maths, ranging from ages 10-18. My goal is always to elicit excellent exam results, but also nurture a genuine interest in what they study. So often poetry and history fall flat in dull classrooms, whereas I aim to communicate my youthful enthusiasm and love of my subject to all students. My teaching style combines a thorough knowledge of mark schemes and exam necessities with a full engagement with the material; I am thrilled to go beyond the boundaries of the exam board where possible, but also to recognise the differing potential and needs of every student. I am very comfortable teaching a range of subjects and assisting with school and university entry.

About my sessions

My sessions are structured around a balance of clear learning objectives, and a sense of academic freedom and exploration. The best way for students to learn is to be guided but not spoon-fed; I ask lots of questions and encourage students to discuss their ideas. In this way they feel through the problems themselves, often noticing where mistakes lie, or where their reasoning or argumentation could be tighter. I always like to make students aware of the types of marking criteria they need to...

My sessions are structured around a balance of clear learning objectives, and a sense of academic freedom and exploration. The best way for students to learn is to be guided but not spoon-fed; I ask lots of questions and encourage students to discuss their ideas. In this way they feel through the problems themselves, often noticing where mistakes lie, or where their reasoning or argumentation could be tighter. I always like to make students aware of the types of marking criteria they need to be hitting, but in such a way as to make it flow naturally from them, rather than have them constantly making checklists in their heads.
