Hi! I'm a first year Political Science and International Relations student at the University of Birmingham. Although Politics is my specialty, I am also available to tutor English and Physics, which were my other A-Level Subjects and in which I achieved an A* and an A respectively. Politics and English are very similar in their need for extended thinking and the use of prose, and so they complement each other nicely. I also thoroughly enjoy Physics and how it uses practical applications of mathematics, and so also am able to tutor it to a high standard. I also offer essay editing for any subject, including English language proficiency tests - message me for more information!

About my sessions

The approach I take to tutoring varies depending on the subject. Politics focuses heavily on the use of case studies and developing lateral thinking in order to make inter-topic links, which really help essays stand out.

My approach to English is to first develop a general understanding of the text, followed by a deeper exploration into the sociopolitical and historical context which inform authors' writings and ideas. In doing so, we are able to understand the text on a more intellectually impressive level, which allows students to access a better quality of writing.


Physics requires first an understanding of overarching concepts. This is achieved by first understanding the 'what' of a particular physical concept, and later the 'why'. Once each individual concept is understood thoroughly, the most useful way to ensure that the information is retained is to apply that knowledge to unfamiliar exam-style questions in order to identify any weaker areas and ensure they are rectified, a technique which allowed me to increase my Physics A-Level grade by two full grades.
