In a 1-on-1 context, I feel it is vital to be approachable. Tutoring can be somewhat disarming for a tutee, so it is important to make their effort and thoughts feel valued. My primary aim is to build their confidence & passion for the subject, providing fertile ground for them to improve and excel.
I have extensive tutoring experience, having been a tutor for 3 years. This has included tutoring English, French, and Philosophy to GCSE, A-level, and I.B. In addition, I was hired as a Transition Mentor for my department at UCL, in which I held weekly sessions with my cohort of first year students. These sessions were aimed at helping them with any academic and pastoral issues they were having. I have also tutored many children for an array of 7+ entrance exams (St. Pauls & Kings College School).
I.B. : HL - History (6), Philosophy (6), French (6). SL - English (6), Maths (6), Biology (7). Core Points: 3. Total = 40 points (1% of students achieve this internationally)
Undergraduate Degree: UCL - Arts & Sciences (Cultures Major, Health & Environment Minor) - 2.1 (69)
Awards & Positions: UCL Arts Commendation Award, UCL Photography Award, Dartford Grammar School Senior Academic Prefect, UCL Transition Mentor, UCL Ambassador, Literature Editor for UCL Publication 'Pi Media'.
I am pitch perfect, meaning I am able to identify what a note is just from hearing it. This is everything from a note on the piano to a tyre screeching in the street!
