About me

I study English Literature & History at Cardiff University, and I love my degree! I would love to share my passion of learning with others. I have always been interested in Literature, History and Classics and, so studying this course was a natural progression for me. I have had various experiences tutoring before, and thoroughly enjoy it. I am willing to tutor in English Literature, Language, History and Classics, which can all be very hard subjects, but with the right approach and teacher, can be extremely rewarding and enjoyable. Having gone through the process myself, I am also able to offer tutorials on personal statements, university applications and CV writing skills.

I have experience working with children and young adults, having tutored in high school, as well as having volunteered teaching vulnerable children in Africa and India These experiences have been extremely rewarding, and have allowed me to give something back to society. I am a member of the Cardiff University Debating Team, This provides great opportunities for debates on current political and philosophical issues with peers, honing my skills for a career in law; aiding confident public speaking and developing quick thinking and strong analytical skills. I enjoy keeping fit and active through being a part of the Netball team. I enjoy training as a team member and also leading sessions myself.

About my sessions

I adapt my tutoring approach entirely to the needs and strengths of the student. The common thread in each of my lessons is my focus upon on developing the student's independent thought, allowing them to excel both inside and outside the classroom. My lessons are more of a dialogue than rote-learning. This is an approach I truly believe it is the best method to develop an analytical, perceptive, and engaging approach to a subject. I am familiar with a variety of exam boards, and I know how to combine this independent thinking with exam success. I will help you to understand what the examiner is looking for, and the most effective ways to study and revise accordingly.

From the first session I will try to engage students as much as possible, by always asking questions to push them to think for themselves, and helping them along the way with reading or questions that may crop up as a result of studying certain aspects. The use of mind maps I believe is very useful, by highlighting important points. I will also use past paper questions and help with broadening knowledge where necessary.

I hope to help students achieve their goals by giving one on one advice, personal to each one, and trying to develop their confidence in exam situations and strive for success in their essays and other schoolwork. I am an enthusiastic individual willing to help others learn.
