About me

I've always loved travelling and this transformed into a passion for geography during my later years at school. I am always interested in the changing world around us, and the cultures that consumes it. For me geography is more than just a subject, it is everything around us, for instance our breakfast. Our breakfast is geography. The bananas come from Ecuador, the coffee from Ethiopia, the tea from India, the cereal from the USA. This is an example of globalisation, a key geographic conc...

I've always loved travelling and this transformed into a passion for geography during my later years at school. I am always interested in the changing world around us, and the cultures that consumes it. For me geography is more than just a subject, it is everything around us, for instance our breakfast. Our breakfast is geography. The bananas come from Ecuador, the coffee from Ethiopia, the tea from India, the cereal from the USA. This is an example of globalisation, a key geographic concept. We are engaging in geography when we eat breakfast, and at any point of day. I take this approach with me when teaching geography and geographic processes.


I obtained A* in Geography A Level and GCSE and am now studying it at the University of Leeds. While I am now focusing mainly on human geography I can still tutor physical geography for the physical GCSE and A Level syllabus. As I am only a second year university student I remember the syllabus from school well, which means less time understanding what needs to be taught and more time teaching.


I have previous tutoring experience, having privately tutored geography to local GCSE and A Level students; I was able to push up the grades for these students quite significantly.

About my sessions

I will help students achieve the best grades they possibly can, and will try to aim for grades teachers may say is out of their ability. Generally I would like to set my sessions into 3 parts:


Going through a homework question from the previous week. I will set an essay homework for your child to complete, which we will go through at the beginning of the session. This is so I can give feedback and spot any holes of knowledge, while working on exam essay formatting.I will th...

I will help students achieve the best grades they possibly can, and will try to aim for grades teachers may say is out of their ability. Generally I would like to set my sessions into 3 parts:


Going through a homework question from the previous week. I will set an essay homework for your child to complete, which we will go through at the beginning of the session. This is so I can give feedback and spot any holes of knowledge, while working on exam essay formatting.I will then explain a key concept from the syllabus, at the students discretion, or I can decide on a topic. We will use case studies and diagrams to understand the idea. This should take up the majority of the lesson.Finally I will set a homework question for the next session on this topic, so the ideas of this session stay in the students head, while in the next session I will feedback the homework and then move onto another concept. But only when the previous one has been fully understood!
