    Reviews

    “In the last couple of years Amber has developed a remarkable ability to teach at a range of levels – including school children as part of our outreach programme, sixth form students, undergraduates and Master’s students. Her teaching is both innovative and exemplary.  She has devised a whole series of quite ingenious strategies to engage students and facilitate their learning across a whole range of settings – from small group tutorials through to large scale practical classes and lectures. Amber has carried out a number of tutorials for my tutees and they have all thoroughly enjoyed the classes and independently come to see me saying how beneficial and engaging the classes work. Her tutorial plans are thorough, insightful and the students really do get to grips with some quite complex materials through Amber’s enthusiastic and passionate teaching style. She works diligently, conscientiously and highly effective in all of her teaching activities.”

    “I had my final session with Amber last week – she was so helpful. She read over a draft of my dissertation and gave some great feedback!”

    My Passion And How I Inspire

    I am an extremely caring and conscientious tutor. I share my passions and love of my subject with my students and encourage them to think deeply about geographical issues. Whilst placing a strong emphasis on a love of learning, I keep my students’ modes of assessments firmly in mind, equipping them with both the knowledge and skills to succeed in their coursework and examinations.
