About me

I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in History. My weekly supervisions with tutors on a one to one basis at university has made me realise just how effective it is when engaging in a discussion with someone more experienced than yourself. Having been through the process of GCSE, A Levels and Oxbridge application myself, which can sometimes be stressful and daunting, I am keen to impart my knowledge and experience to others, to help them out.

I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with a degree in History. My weekly supervisions with tutors on a one to one basis at university has made me realise just how effective it is when engaging in a discussion with someone more experienced than yourself. Having been through the process of GCSE, A Levels and Oxbridge application myself, which can sometimes be stressful and daunting, I am keen to impart my knowledge and experience to others, to help them out. I have also been involved with some access activities in my college, so I am alert as to how the exam system has changed slightly and so has the Cambridge application process. I hope that I can use my insight to aid others in their studies and perhaps encourage a greater interest in them for their subject, and maybe learn something along the way myself as well!

About my sessions

Each session will of course be tailored to suit the needs of the individual student. I believe that the more practised you are, the better you will do in the exams as you will be more preparered. For History the best way to do this is to do timed essays, and I can look at and discuss these essays in a tutor session.

Each session will of course be tailored to suit the needs of the individual student. I believe that the more practised you are, the better you will do in the exams as you will be more preparered. For History the best way to do this is to do timed essays, and I can look at and discuss these essays in a tutor session. Knowing how to write a good essay is an invaluable skill, something I would be happy to help students with. For Chemistry, knowing and understanding the concepts well is vital first, and then testing them through past exam questions. I can help students with any problems they find, whether in understanding the concepts or approaching the questions. If a student wants more information about Oxbridge applications and the personal statement and preparing for interviews, I would gladly offer advice. I would encourage students to have a good idea of what they want to get out of the session, and have questions they want to ask. If possible, I would like to know what they are beforehand, as I can then prepare, to make the sessions more effective. Contact me through this website by sending a Webmail, or booking a Meet a Tutor session, and I'll look forwards to seeing you soon!
