About me

I'm available for tutorials on Oxbridge Applications, particularly admissions tests, essay writing, reading skills, critical thinking, and interview preparation. Having recently been through the admissions system, I am familiar with how it behaves, and I will be able to relate to the student more than almost any tutor. I took my application to Oxford very seriously, and preparation for it was the main focus of my time Year 12. Equally, I am passionate about the discursive skills of argumentation and critical thinking that are required for success, and hope that I can help students who are passionate about their fields of study overcome the stress and difficulty of applying to Oxbridge.

I can also offer tutorials on A Level Economics, and A Level Core Maths. I achieved 198/200 UMS in this section of the Maths A2 Level.

About my sessions

If, as will usually be the case, I have set work to be completed between tutorials, we will begin the lesson with verbal feedback on this work, and working through any mistakes that have been made. If there were any mistakes that were made often in the work, we will dedicate a part of the teaching time to going over that method. After this, I will begin teaching a new topic or skill by working through it myself, and explaining, while the student listens. After this, I will ask the student to repeat the explanation back to me, and then work through some problems with me.

For Oxbridge applicants, I will ooccasionally set an essay, with some reading, for the student to complete between tutorials. I will then ask the student to explain their essay answer, and we will continue to discuss the topic at hand for the rest of the tutorial. If we are focusing more on the Admissions Test, I like to spend each section focusing on one or two styles of question, and working out a technique that works best for the student.

Questions William has answered

Should the supply and use of all drugs be legalised?

This is just the introduction and first paragraph of a standard Section 2 Answer. This essay will define “drugs” as any substance which has an artificial effect on the body (thus including caffeine, and alcohol). However, the crucial point of this argument is made when we consider the most harmful of drugs, many of which are illegal in most countries (such as heroin, ecstasy, and cocaine). Drugs are harmful to individuals, and an increase in their use would be harmful to society, therefore we should not legalise them. The arguments for legalisation can often be achieved through decriminalisation. So the best solution is decriminalising, but not legalising, the supply and use of drugs. /// NEW PARAGRAPH: The legalisation of drugs could be better for addicts, and help them overcome their addiction. Supporters of this argument often cite Portugal as a case study, because drug-related deaths in this country have decreased since they completely legalised the use and supply of all drugs. This is likely due to the fact that it creates a culture where addicts are treated like those with any other form of illness, as opposed to being treated as criminals. As a result, stigma towards drug addiction decreases, those who are addicts more readily accept their addiction, meaning they are more likely to seek help, which will benefit these individuals, and reduce widespread drug addiction. One might reply that this culture shift would take a while to take hold, and therefore is an ineffective policy. However, just because a policy is long-term does not render it a bad one, and therefore this argument essentially stands in favour of legalising the supply and use of all drugs.
