Hi, I'm Conor.


I'm a 21-year-old student from West London, currently studying Physical Geography at the University of Leeds. I'm an enthusiastic, engaged and driven individual, with a keen desire to help make a difference in others' lives. I have a passion for education and the environment, with over 2 years of tutoring experience at different levels.


At school I would regularly help with mentoring younger students and have always found a passion in English teaching. I have always naturally been good at English throughout school, achieving an A* in both Language and Literature GCSEs as well as an A* in English Literature at A-Level. I feel that the key to obtaining top marks is through enjoyment, to readily absorb and retain content, and knowledge of how to score effectively by including key indicators in essays that instantly say to the examiner - "I'm a top band student."


I enjoy conveying my passion for the subject through engaging sessions aimed around stimulating enjoyment, while focusing on improvement in the key aspects that are likely to boost marks. In other words, I think it is best to work 'smart' rather than to work hard. Effective focus in key areas will lead to candidates standing out to examiners, allowing them to be placed in the highest band possible and therefore receive the top marks.

About my sessions

I think sessions should be centred around enjoyment - because if you find them dull and monotonous, then almost no information will be retained and you'll have wasted your time! Like I said, it's important to work smart and that means effectively retaining as much key information as possible.

I think sessions should be centred around enjoyment - because if you find them dull and monotonous, then almost no information will be retained and you'll have wasted your time! Like I said, it's important to work smart and that means effectively retaining as much key information as possible.


Sessions will open with an activity to drive engagement in the subject area, then continue with mark scheme-orientated work which centres around the key indicators that students will need to include in their essays to be recognised as top band students. I think it is important to continually build upon past work, both to develop an understanding of personal development and as a form of repetition to improve uptake of new information and techniques. Past papers, exemplar essays and flash cards will be used, with interactive games being used in each session to ease the intensity.


Occasional takeaway work, however I'd like to keep most of the work to within the session. Flexible with hours, open to regular appointments as well as a change in style to suit each person as I recognise everyone learns differently!


Thanks!

Conor
