About me

I am a personable and effective tutor with a strong academic background and have extensive tutoring experience. In 2019 I attained a First-Class Degree in Geography from the University of Cardiff, and I am currently undertaking a Master’s Degree in Development Economics at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Over the last four years I have tutored a range of students with varying academic abilities and levels of motivation. Whether engaged in delivering a lesson to a student applying for Oxbridge or one struggling academically I am committed to delivering an engaging, enjoyable and educational session. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring and I find it extremely rewarding, especially since the majority of my students thus far have surpassed their target grades in their final exams. I have extensive knowledge and access to effective resources for Science, German and Geography at both GCSE and A Level standard. I am highly adaptable and attentive to individual students learning styles and requests. I am not from an elite socioeconomic background and in my experience my students have found comfort and relatability in my approach; I have a sense of humour and I am not intimidating. I believe that all students deserve the opportunity to gain the best grades they can and feel proud of their achievements upon leaving school, and it is my role to support them in this endeavour.

About my sessions

I aspire to make my sessions both enjoyable and academically effective. Each students’ learning style is unique, and I am attentive to this. In the first lesson I establish the student’s goals and aspirations for the subject and identify areas for focus through discussing what they find most challenging. Whilst I like to adhere to a structured block of tutoring, according to the student's examination specification, if there are particular topics or questions that a student is struggling w...

I aspire to make my sessions both enjoyable and academically effective. Each students’ learning style is unique, and I am attentive to this. In the first lesson I establish the student’s goals and aspirations for the subject and identify areas for focus through discussing what they find most challenging. Whilst I like to adhere to a structured block of tutoring, according to the student's examination specification, if there are particular topics or questions that a student is struggling with, they are always welcome to send me a message so that I can prepare a more tailored learning experience for the upcoming session. Something key for me is keeping track of progress and making sure that new skills are embedded in long term memory. I find it productive to revisit previous topics in the first ten minutes of each session, in a revision style activity, in order to ensure that students learn cumulatively. I strive to ensure that my students feel comfortable in my sessions and are honest with me about their learning needs and how best we can achieve the given aims of the session together.
