About me

Hi, I'm Ella! I am a new tutor currently studying geography in my second year at University. I have always loved geography because of the breadth of learning it offers - to learn about the different cultures and physical environments from all around the world is enlightening to say the least! There is never a simple answer to geographical questions, which makes geography so fascinating to study. We may have a 'bigger picture' of what's occurring globally, but this is made up o...

Hi, I'm Ella! I am a new tutor currently studying geography in my second year at University. I have always loved geography because of the breadth of learning it offers - to learn about the different cultures and physical environments from all around the world is enlightening to say the least! There is never a simple answer to geographical questions, which makes geography so fascinating to study. We may have a 'bigger picture' of what's occurring globally, but this is made up of a network of smaller, local pictures that add complexity to geographical issues. Unravelling this complexity is exciting, and gives us the opportunity to gain unique knowledge of distant places and people.


As well as studying for my degree, I play football at University level which I am very passionate about. I also pursue languages as a hobby whilst at University, especially Spanish, which I learnt at a young age. I love my hobbies and I am always happy to talk about them! When I was at school, I sometimes found it hard to balance my sports, learning to drive, keeping my part-time job and doing school work, but making what I did as enjoyable as possible helped me through it.

About my sessions

It's the inevitable part of being a student: you've revised as much as you possibly can for a test, but still end up asking yourself: 'how did that go so badly?'. It can be frustrating to put in hard work and not see it flourish, but when you apply knowledge effectively, success becomes second nature! This will be the aim of my sessions: to help students use their knowledge effectively and nail exam technique.I will run short, one hour sessions in which we can discuss exam-sty...

It's the inevitable part of being a student: you've revised as much as you possibly can for a test, but still end up asking yourself: 'how did that go so badly?'. It can be frustrating to put in hard work and not see it flourish, but when you apply knowledge effectively, success becomes second nature! This will be the aim of my sessions: to help students use their knowledge effectively and nail exam technique.I will run short, one hour sessions in which we can discuss exam-style questions on any chosen topic from the course. It will involve less writing and more thinking! We can take time to unpick the questions, and think about exam technique and how to gain maximum marks. I expect the student to have knowledge of the topic they choose through what they've learnt in school, though I will help with any gaps in knowledge, and we will apply the knowledge to specific questions. We will brainstorm ideas and link information together when faced with a question - a great way to tackle any exam question, especially those surprisingly nasty ones! Thinking about what you know can help you enjoy it more, actually remember the information and what it means, and gain confidence.

Of course, I am also more than happy to help students go through their work and correct or improve it. I am happy to adapt to people's specific needs. My priority is helping my students' confidence, success, and enjoyment of the subject in a comfortable and positive learning environment.
