About me

Hi! My name is Sarah and I’m studying Geography at Oxford University. Geography is a really exciting subject that bridges both sciences and arts through its human and physical elements. Geography is amazing as it allows a current and relevant understanding of the world around you. You can use your geographical understanding every day, to gain deeper insight into places that you travel to as well as where you live. This is also why I love economics, it helps you understand real world processes...

Hi! My name is Sarah and I’m studying Geography at Oxford University. Geography is a really exciting subject that bridges both sciences and arts through its human and physical elements. Geography is amazing as it allows a current and relevant understanding of the world around you. You can use your geographical understanding every day, to gain deeper insight into places that you travel to as well as where you live. This is also why I love economics, it helps you understand real world processes and current affairs. My enjoyment of economics and maths stems from the ability to solve complex problems through logical consideration. I’ve always been someone who has really worried about exams – but with the right preparation this doesn’t need to be the case! I was well taught about different methods of learning and revising; there are so many out there, you just have to find the one that suits you. My revision strategy has always been about efficiency – learning what you need to learn (and how to answer questions) to get the top grades. I would love to help you to find your way of working to achieve the best grades you can!

About my sessions

I provide enthusiastic lessons to either consolidate and confirm understanding or develop on weaker areas. Lessons ensure enough resources for revision and understanding of how specific topics relate to the wider course and world. I structure my lessons through cooperatively setting goals to target particular questions or concerns, resulting in students clearly seeing progress. By refreshing the basic understanding of processes and concepts students should be able to move confidently forwards...

I provide enthusiastic lessons to either consolidate and confirm understanding or develop on weaker areas. Lessons ensure enough resources for revision and understanding of how specific topics relate to the wider course and world. I structure my lessons through cooperatively setting goals to target particular questions or concerns, resulting in students clearly seeing progress. By refreshing the basic understanding of processes and concepts students should be able to move confidently forwards. You have to crack the basics before you can apply that knowledge! I believe in learning concepts applied to real world examples (in Geography and Economics) - this allows depth of understanding that is really useful in exam settings. In my lessons I directly target the specification. I teach exam techniques alongside knowledge by looking at assessment questions, which I believe is the best way of revising.
