My Passion & How I Inspire

After finishing my A Levels, my high school got in touch with me. They asked if I would tutor specific students who they thought were struggling with Humanities at GCSE and A Level. Once I started tutoring, I found it to be both rewarding and inspiring. I believe that one-to-one tuition is a fantastic way to ensure that my students receive a personalised approach to teaching. I adapt the pace and style of my lessons to each individual student. I am excited to help them realise their full potential.

My Experience

I have experience tutoring Ancient History, History, English Literature and English Language. I teach a variety of age groups and ability levels, ranging from primary school children to undergraduate students. I have experience teaching different exam boards (including OCR, AQA, Edexcel, WJEC) and helping students prepare their UCAS applications.

Some examples of my past teaching experience include:

- Proof reading History and Ancient History essays for undergraduate students in central London to help improve their clarity and argument.

- Teaching History to an A level student to take his B grade to an A.

- Helping a year 6 student prepare for her SATs exams.

- Teaching at GCSE level with a focus on essay writing for specific mark schemes.

- Teaching GCSE Chemistry to a young girl to improve her confidence in the subject.
