About me

Hello! I am currently reading History and Middle Eastern Studies at St Andrews University and have been lucky enough to have some amazing teachers in the past, in whose footsteps I hope to follow.

Hello! I am currently reading History and Middle Eastern Studies at St Andrews University and have been lucky enough to have some amazing teachers in the past, in whose footsteps I hope to follow.


I enjoy the challenges of learning about my subjects and even more so, the feeling of triumph when you overcome any barriers! That’s what I am here for: to sort out any niggles and issues when it comes to History, English and Latin. I relate all too well with the pressures of exams so I hope to create a fun learning environment to ease any worries and hopefully let you grow a passion for the subject, too.


In my spare time, I play netball at university level and love doing art. I also achieved a gold medal for LAMDA in public speaking and was also voted in by my peers and teachers as Head Girl in my final year of school.


I am a very patient and dedicated tutor, especially since I firmly believe that long-term success is the product of hard-work and commitment. I understand the value of an engaging lesson and so I will do my utmost to make sure that every tutee feels more knowledgeable and confident after each session.

About my sessions

No tutee is the same: everyone has a different learning style and so sessions will be tailored to each student. That being said, there will be a two-pronged structure to ensure that a solid foundation is created before we tackle exam questions.


First, topics will be broken down into a simple and understandable format. For History, this covers a range of techniques, such as timelines, mind-maps, anecdotes, mnemonics, etc.; videos also help to contextualise information. For E...

No tutee is the same: everyone has a different learning style and so sessions will be tailored to each student. That being said, there will be a two-pronged structure to ensure that a solid foundation is created before we tackle exam questions.


First, topics will be broken down into a simple and understandable format. For History, this covers a range of techniques, such as timelines, mind-maps, anecdotes, mnemonics, etc.; videos also help to contextualise information. For English, it helps to start with textual annotations. I find the most effective approach is to identify specific ideas/techniques, which will be used as the base for further discusion to see all angles of a text. For Latin, the approach is rather different, with the need to balance the literature and language. Lessons will be based on a mixture of key grammatical concepts, vocabulary and approaches to translations.


From there, we will apply the knowledge in exam questions. The focus will be on improving techniques, such as building an argument and structuring ideas in a logical and coherent way.


It would really help if you could tell me your subject, exam board and what you would like to focus on so I can prepare in advance. Together, we will strive to achieve the result you want!
