About me

Hello!

I'm an enthusiastic 3rd year PPE undergraduate with a passion for teaching and inspiring others to learn and have a real interest in their subjects! My experience includes being an au pair in Italy for 2 months. Whilst I was there I tutored English. Alongside studying at university, I am also part of a charity that runs summer camps for children. I am a mentor and camp leader and have delivered my own workshops as part of this role.

I bring this experience to my online tutoring - I try to make the sessions as interactive as possible. I want my tutees to come away from sessions having been challenged and having gained real skills and knowledge that they can apply to their furture studies. I can tutor ages 13+ as well as GCSE subjects in English, History and Philosophy. I can also offer help with IB Maths Studies, History, Extended Essay, English and personal statements.

If you have any questions please get in touch!

Elisabeth has been absolutely amazing. I am student that gets easily confused and Elisabeth had a lot of patience and was able to break things down for me when there was something I didn't understand. She has put up with me for three whole hours today and I think that deserves a round of applause!!! Fab tutor and will definitely be using her in the future.

Questions Elisabeth has answered

What sort of things should I say in my personal statement?

A personal statement is your chance to show off not only your academic capability and interest in the subject you are applying for, it's also a chance to show the universities that you would be a valued member of their community!

You only have 4000 characters to sell yourself. This means you should only include things that are really strengthen and are and relevant to your application. The admissions tutor doesn't just want to read a list of things you've done!

You could streamline what you will include by making a list of all your academic achievements, and then another one for your intersests/hobbies and any achievements you have from these. Then pick out 3 or 4 things from each list that you think are most relelvant to the subject you are applying to study or that best showcase your character.

Also have a look at the prospectus of the university/universities you're applying to and see what they are looking for in an applicant. Then you can gear your personal statement to demonstrate these qualities.

When it actually comes to writing your statement clarity is key! The admissions tutor will have a lot of these statements to read so try to be as clear as possible so your statement is easy to read.
