About me

I was the President of my college’s poetry society, and the Director of Oxford’s largest student publications.

I have just completed my degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. I am passionate about poetry and short fiction. I was the President of my college’s poetry society, and the Director of Oxford’s largest student publications. I am also aspiring to become a professional writer myself. What I love most about my subject is the artistry that can be conveyed through language. I hope to cultivate this enthusiasm in the students that I tutor, to help them succeed in their GCSE and A Level English examinations. I remember how daunting it was having to memorise quotes and linguistic techniques for my exams. This is why I want to tutor, to help students to achieve in the subject that I love!

About my sessions

To help students succeed I aim to listen and respond to their academic needs using a learning method which best suits them. At the beginning of the first session we will mutually discuss and set measurable goals which are realistic but also challenge the student to go above and beyond.

I think visual learning techniques, such as mind maps, work extremely well. They certainly did for me when planning essays for my exams. I also know that online resources can be extremely helpful for many...

To help students succeed I aim to listen and respond to their academic needs using a learning method which best suits them. At the beginning of the first session we will mutually discuss and set measurable goals which are realistic but also challenge the student to go above and beyond.

I think visual learning techniques, such as mind maps, work extremely well. They certainly did for me when planning essays for my exams. I also know that online resources can be extremely helpful for many students in this technological age, especially for creating flash cards and memory training when on the go, and will recommend these where necessary. Finally, I believe practice testing to be the most efficient learning technique. Demystifying the exam paper for the student is invaluable; once they crack the practice papers they can crack the real thing.

In tandem with my tutoring approach, my style is friendly and relaxed to make learning a more positive and successful experience. Over-stressing was never conducive to effective learning while I was studying and I will aim to prevent this as well as I can.
