About me

I am a master student at the University of Durham after recently completing my undergraduate degree there in Education Studies with Sociology. Sociology is a very broad but extremely interesting subject, with many different elements that we witness everyday in our own lives - even if you don't know it! I have a lot of experience in Schools - sometimes of which it has been working with 5 year olds, meaning I am a very patient person! I am also currently an Independent Visitor, meaning I cu...

I am a master student at the University of Durham after recently completing my undergraduate degree there in Education Studies with Sociology. Sociology is a very broad but extremely interesting subject, with many different elements that we witness everyday in our own lives - even if you don't know it! I have a lot of experience in Schools - sometimes of which it has been working with 5 year olds, meaning I am a very patient person! I am also currently an Independent Visitor, meaning I currently take a young person in care out once a month to do some fun activity - this meaning I am a good listener and know how to have fun as well as being professional! I hope that through my sessions, I can help you understand elements of Sociology, which you find difficult - I know that the key theories can sometimes be hard to get your head around! But I hope that I can make these enjoyable by relating it to every day life, which is what Sociology is all about! Exam technique is also very important, so I hope that I can help you reach those high grades, by giving hints and tips just like what I did when I was doing my A-Levels just a year ago! If you have any questions, or simply just can't get your head around something, feel free to book a session with me! I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

The structure of my sessions depends on what you are looking for. I can structure sessions in the form of content, so teaching you by asking questions of key terms etc and giving you the key points needed for your A Level or GCSE. I also try to embed exam questions into my sessions throughout. If you are looking more for exam help then I can guide and practice questions with you, helping you with what the examiners are really looking for. Exam practice is particularly important at both GCSE a...

If you are looking more for exam help then I can guide and practice questions with you, helping you with what the examiners are really looking for. Exam practice is particularly important at both GCSE and A level, so by answering exam style questions for me to mark and give you feeback on, this will allow me to monitor your progress and for you as a student to improve! I am very much open to structuring my sessions based on you!

Rachael was an incredible tutor, she helped me achieve an A in my ICT IGCSE when at the beginning of the course i was only hoping for a C. She was so amazingly patient and dedicated as well as constantly reliable. Rachael put in so much time for me outside of the lessons by marking a lot of extra work for me and always being there if i had a doubt. I could not recomend Rachael enough and I couldn't have felt more confident walking into my exam beacuse of her.

Rachael made sociology very enjoyable for me. She used different teaching techniques which made it easier for me to learn. I was predicted a D, but thanks to Rachael I achieved an A. Having Rachael as my tutor changed my confidence so much, cannot thank her enough for all the support that she gave me. Highly recommend Rachael as a tutor.
