About me

Hi, I am currently going to study English and History at university because I was incredibly passionate about these subjects during my A levels because it allowed me to express my opinions on certain topics. I did OCR for English Literature, AQA for History and Edexcel for Government and Politics; all of which I was taught by examiners in these respective boards especially with regards to the new linear course, so much so, I received 100% on one of my politics papers with their advice and tip...

Hi, I am currently going to study English and History at university because I was incredibly passionate about these subjects during my A levels because it allowed me to express my opinions on certain topics. I did OCR for English Literature, AQA for History and Edexcel for Government and Politics; all of which I was taught by examiners in these respective boards especially with regards to the new linear course, so much so, I received 100% on one of my politics papers with their advice and tips.

I aim to help the student improve their grades and succeed by using the tutorial sessions to debate and discuss certain topics as that would enable them to formulate their own views on a topic, which will help them with their exam. The approach I will use to make sure a student succeeds is through intensive exam questions and past papers, of which I will pass down tips that I was taught by the examiners.

About my sessions

The structure of the tutorials will be flexible as it will alter depending on the needs of the student. I intend to make the sessions fun and enjoyable because that would encourage learning, which is important because in order for a student to succeed, they need to have a positive mindset about learning and making it fun would help them achieve this.

I intend to make the sessions fun and enjoyable because that would encourage learning, which is important because in order for a student to succeed, they need to have a positive mindset about learning and making it fun would help them achieve this. 

I will help students to achieve their goals because, initially, I will ascertain their fundamental weaknesses and depending on that information, I will adapt my lessons to suit the student. Once these fundamental issues have been dealt with, I will then start helping them prepare for their exams or any assignments they have. I care for my students and I care about their education, which means throughout my tutoring sessions with the tutee, I am willing to go above and beyond for them to maximise their success in the future.
