About me

Hi I'm Anna, I am 21 and I have just graduated in Geography from Jesus College, University of Cambridge. Outside of my studies, I enjoy playing tennis, netball, and reading - particularly crime fiction! During my time at Cambridge, I achieved a strong 2.1 in each academic year and a high first (81%) in my undergraduate dissertation. My dissertation received several prizes and has been submitted for national competitions. I also achieved 12 A*s at GCSE and 1 A* in Geography alongside 3 As...

Hi I'm Anna, I am 21 and I have just graduated in Geography from Jesus College, University of Cambridge. Outside of my studies, I enjoy playing tennis, netball, and reading - particularly crime fiction! During my time at Cambridge, I achieved a strong 2.1 in each academic year and a high first (81%) in my undergraduate dissertation. My dissertation received several prizes and has been submitted for national competitions. I also achieved 12 A*s at GCSE and 1 A* in Geography alongside 3 As at A-level. In September, I am due to start a fully-funded Masters and PhD at Newcastle University investigating female fear of crime in Stockholm.

Whilst this proves the strength of my academic ability, I believe it is more important to discuss my passion and enthusiasm for my subject - Geography! Geography has always been a great passion of mine, it is incredibly relevant and applicable to the world around us as everything can be understood and interpreted from a Geographical perspective. I believe that a successful tutor is one that is passionate as personally, nothing is more inspiring than being taught by someone who loves their subject. Combined with long-term tutoring experience,  I want to pass on my enthusiasm for my subject and help you achieve the best you can.

About my sessions

In order to deliver successful tutorials, I believe several steps are necessary. First, it is important to identify the areas each student wants to work on. Second, it is then pivotal to understand how it is best to address these weaknesses, in other words, is the student a visual learner or do they perhaps learn best through listening or writing? From discussing this, it is then possible to design and plan tutorials that will be tailored to each student.

In order to deliver successful tutorials, I believe several steps are necessary. First, it is important to identify the areas each student wants to work on. Second, it is then pivotal to understand how it is best to address these weaknesses, in other words, is the student a visual learner or do they perhaps learn best through listening or writing? From discussing this, it is then possible to design and plan tutorials that will be tailored to each student. 

Whilst planning, I will draw on innovative techniques and resources. As my Mother is a teacher, I have access to a wide range of resources that I will regularly use in each tutorial. Exam practice will also be a crucial part of my tutorials to monitor each student's learning as ultimately, their long-term aim is to improve their exam grades. I will also regularly ask for feedback to ensure that both the student and parent is satisfied with the progress they are making. Combined, these will improve each student's performance in exams, whilst importantly, improving their confidence.
