About me

I'm going into my third year of BA Philosophy & English at the University of Southampton, but getting there wasn't a simple feat. Teachers at school don't always reach out to every type of student, and the more abstract subjects like English Literature, Language, and Religious Studies can feel impossible.

I'm going into my third year of BA Philosophy & English at the University of Southampton, but getting there wasn't a simple feat. Teachers at school don't always reach out to every type of student, and the more abstract subjects like English Literature, Language, and Religious Studies can feel impossible. How can you revise for subjects that aren't based on remembering facts or formulas? It is thought that people either 'get it' or they 'don't'. It is not a question of intelligence or a magic light switch, but strategy. If you go in that exam hall with a structure in mind for these subjects, it will be ten times easier. Concrete techniques and plans for these subjects at GCSE and A-level are paramount to success. I've experienced it all: bad teachers, learning difficulties and exam anxiety. Through my own life experience, I think I can help children of any ability and show them that the essay-based subjects aren't always as intimidating and impossible as they first appear.

About my sessions

The first step of my tutorials will be knowledge: memorization techniques/strategies for key words, theories and concepts so that anything you don't understand will be clarified in a way tailored to you.

The second step will be structure. In essay-based subjects how you convey the knoweldge is how you hit the pass mark, so I will aim to provide students with techniques and a concrete action plan on how to tackle really intimidating high mark questions.

The first step of my tutorials will be knowledge: memorization techniques/strategies for key words, theories and concepts so that anything you don't understand will be clarified in a way tailored to you.

The second step will be structure. In essay-based subjects how you convey the knoweldge is how you hit the pass mark, so I will aim to provide students with techniques and a concrete action plan on how to tackle really intimidating high mark questions.

All of my tutorials will have a substantial emphasis on exam technique: looking at examainers reports, sample answers and mark schemes in order to work out what examainers are looking for. Once you know this, you can apply this to your own work to ensure success.

All of these techniques are designed to help you understand their course from every possible angle. With understanding comes confidence, and with confidence comes happiness and success.

How I will apply these techniques precisely depends on the student: it's their learning so they should have the freedom to lead the way in whatever way they think will benefit them most.
