History was always my passion during secondary school, and taking this interest to further study at University was one of the best decisions I have made. I also completed A-Levels in Economics and English Literature, and love tutoring these subjects. I have excellent communication and organisational skills, which will allow me to provide effective and inspiring sessions. I am friendly, outgoing and very caring, making sure I always put the needs of the student first. I am currently studying a Masters degree, and am excited to continue tutoring this year. I have two years of tutoring experience with My Tutor and have helped many students achieve the results they are hoping for.

About my sessions

I offer sessions in History, Economics and English Literature, having studied these for my A-Levels. Everybody has a different way of learning, and I will always tailor my sessions to the student. We will start with understanding, going over topics and knowledge in different ways.

I offer sessions in History, Economics and English Literature, having studied these for my A-Levels. Everybody has a different way of learning, and I will always tailor my sessions to the student. We will start with understanding, going over topics and knowledge in different ways. These could be using visual aids, making diagrams or timelines, playing games, or just having a debate about the content. I will aim to encourage discussion of the topic, which often provokes students to think for themselves and attempt to form original points. Some students will want to focus more on the content here and I will find creative and engaging ways to help them learn the material. This may be in separate sessions, or some students may prefer to look at exam questions which relate to the content we just covered in the same session. Understanding what the question is asking is always important in A Level and GCSE exams, so we will discuss different methods for identifying what the student should be writing. I will make the sessions enjoyable and engaging. University Applications: I can offer insights and guidance to writing personal statements and to completing the HAT exam for Oxford. I can also go through different interview questions with students, helping to build confidence. Personal statements require many, many drafts and I understand how frustrating they can be to craft, so I am here to read and help with them.

Daphne was an amazing supportive tutor to my son. when he was struggling, Daphne stepped in at short notice to get him through the exams and essays. My son's results were direct result of Daphne's hard work. Would use Daphne again if I had the opportunity

Daphne is concise and organised in making her points, and really helped me to understand the topic at hand in a structured way.
