GEOGRAPHY: I have always loved Geography and I am applying to study my masters in Germany. Geography is a fun and diverse subject which opens many doors for further education, and I would therefore love the opportunity to help other students to thrive and push themselves to excel in their exams and coursework. I am experienced in both taking an excelling in Geography exams as I understand the skills and techniques that the examiners are especially looking for! GERMAN: I love languages but German is by far my favourite! I have attained full marks in all my German qualifications up to date, as well as working and studying in Germany. I know first hand that languages are very difficult to learn, but I also know that if you really stick at it and gain the right support, being able to speak a high level of German is extremely rewarding and door-opening! As I am not a native speaker of German I have an especially strong understanding of German gramma, and my experience in studying other languages (Spanish, Japanese, Swedish and Latin) means that I have gained the most effective language learning strategies and teaching techniques. EPQ: I undertook my Extended Project Qualification when I was in year 13 (2016), achieving a mark of 100% (A*). I am a strong essay writer and I know many tricks and techniques for writing outstanding production logs which puts me in a strong position to guide students through their projects to attain outstanding grades.

About my sessions

I aspire to make my sessions enjoyable, memorable and effective. I believe that every student learns best in different ways which is why I think it's important to discuss with each student how they would prefer to structure the sessions and which methods they find particularly useful. If there are particular topics or questions that a student struggles with, I would prefer to be sent this question or topic prior to the session so that I am able to look over it and prepare fully, ensuring...

I aspire to make my sessions enjoyable, memorable and effective. I believe that every student learns best in different ways which is why I think it's important to discuss with each student how they would prefer to structure the sessions and which methods they find particularly useful. If there are particular topics or questions that a student struggles with, I would prefer to be sent this question or topic prior to the session so that I am able to look over it and prepare fully, ensuring that the time in the session is spent most effectively. Something that is key for me is keeping track of progress and making sure that new skills are embedded into long term memory. For this reason I find it productive to revisit previous topics briefly at the start of each new session to ensure that students learn cumulatively and don't forget previously learnt skills and techniques. The most important thing is that each student feels able to be honest with me about which methods work best for them and from there I will be able to tailor my sessions in the most personal and effective way.
