About me

Last summer I graduated from my History and Politics degree at the University of Edinburgh. I loved my course because of the way the subjects link together. You can't fully understand the present without knowing about how we got here, and History and Politics takes you on a journey to the modern day! I also studied English up until A-Level equivalent in Scotland. Having written essays throughout my degree, I still use the skills I learned in English today! As I enjoyed a lot of different...

Last summer I graduated from my History and Politics degree at the University of Edinburgh. I loved my course because of the way the subjects link together. You can't fully understand the present without knowing about how we got here, and History and Politics takes you on a journey to the modern day! I also studied English up until A-Level equivalent in Scotland. Having written essays throughout my degree, I still use the skills I learned in English today! As I enjoyed a lot of different classes at school, I found it difficult to choose a subject for study at university. I was initially enrolled on a Politics and Sociology degree, changing to History and Politics at the end of my first year. As such, I can help you discover which subject you really like best.

Throughout university I was devoted to the debating society, so if presentations make you nervous, I also can help with that!

Through our lessons I want to support you to get the best grades possible, whilst helping you learn to enjoy your subject. I use a mixture of visual and audio learning techniques to achieve my best grades, and so have gathered a vast number of methods which we can use to understand which works best for you! I can also offer specific advice for people who learn a little differently from their peers, taking into account any neurodiversity or learning difficulties you may have.

About my sessions

Before your first lesson with me I will ask what you are hoping to gain from our time together and for any upcoming deadlines, so we can determine a timeframe and objectives for our lesson plan. I will assess your strengths and weaknesses, and this will allow me to develop an idea of how to run our lessons, and where we need to spend most time. My aim is to make your learning both effective and enjoyable! The more comfortable you are in our lessons, the better work you will produce.

Before your first lesson with me I will ask what you are hoping to gain from our time together and for any upcoming deadlines, so we can determine a timeframe and objectives for our lesson plan. I will assess your strengths and weaknesses, and this will allow me to develop an idea of how to run our lessons, and where we need to spend most time. My aim is to make your learning both effective and enjoyable! The more comfortable you are in our lessons, the better work you will produce.

I will measure your progress weekly by following how well you are completing tasks, as well as the time it is taking you to complete these. As most, if not all, of your assessments are likely to be taken under time pressure, I believe that both of these elements are crucial for your success. I will also ask you how you feel each class is going, and how confident you feel in achieving your overall objectives each week. This way we can get an understanding of what has worked well for you, and whether we need to make changes to our initial lesson plan. Through our sessions you’re likely to realise you are more confident in some aspects of the subject than you thought, and we can adapt our lesson plan as we go on to accommodate for that!

If you are looking for proofreading or essay/personal statement feedback, I will offer you the option of either face to face or written feedback sessions.
