About me

Hi, my name is Issy and I am a fourth year geography student at the University of Edinburgh. I would love to share my enthusiasm for geography with you, as it is a subject that I believe is exciting, current and relevant. Everybody learns better when they are interested in a subject and it is my job to engage you with the material.

Hi, my name is Issy and I am a fourth year geography student at the University of Edinburgh. I would love to share my enthusiasm for geography with you, as it is a subject that I believe is exciting, current and relevant. Everybody learns better when they are interested in a subject and it is my job to engage you with the material. Geography is so broad and varied that there is sure to be something that interests everyone! One of my main aims as a tutor is to ensure that my pupils find the lessons fun, interesting and engaging, besides being informative and instructive.

I understand the difference an excellent tutor can have, having seen results with my own studies. I had an exceptional Latin tutor and with her help I achieved 98% in one of my A-level Latin papers. I learnt a lot from her teaching techniques and exceptional exam technique, which I would love to pass on. Latin remains another academic passion of mine.

At GCSE I achieved 13A*s and 1A and I would be keen to share my expertise in achieving top marks across the board.

About my sessions

The free online introduction session will be key to the planning of my tutorials. You will be able to tell me what you want to achieve with the sessions and we will discuss the areas that you hope to improve in. During the initial meeting, we will cover topics such as revision techniques and essay writing so that I can see what type of learner you are and where your strengths lay. I may also ask for a piece of marked work so I can start to understand how your tackle questions and express your...

The free online introduction session will be key to the planning of my tutorials. You will be able to tell me what you want to achieve with the sessions and we will discuss the areas that you hope to improve in. During the initial meeting, we will cover topics such as revision techniques and essay writing so that I can see what type of learner you are and where your strengths lay. I may also ask for a piece of marked work so I can start to understand how your tackle questions and express your ideas.

The direction and pace of the tutorials will be tailored to each pupil. Whilst each tutorial will be planned in advance, I believe it is essential to be flexible with the sessions – if more time is needed on a certain topic then things will be adjusted accordingly. Thorough understanding of the material will be a key aim of the tutorials. To achieve those tops marks, we will also focus on applying the knowledge that you have. Once a topic has been covered, we will look at exam questions together and I will be there to help you understand exactly what the examiners are looking for. Sometimes only a little bit of advice is needed to help you gain those extra marks to cross a grade boundary!

A very useful history lesson. Issy is obviously very knowledgeable about the topics she teaches and offered constructive and relevant advice on exam technique, even volunteering to send a model answer to the question afterwards. Thank you Issy.
