I have been tutoring students for about four years whilst completing academic research of my own. I am currently working towards my PhD at Oxford University in contemporary British art. I have experience with students from primary school to university age across a range of syllabi. I am able to help with academic writing, consolidation of course content and exam technique.

“I just wanted to let you know Martha received a first (72%) for her dissertation on the decline of Marie Antoinette! We’re really thrilled for her and wanted to thank you for your valuable help and support.”

My Approach to Private Tuition
My approach to tutoring is very similar to the way in which I study myself. I will follow the mark scheme and course content carefully for optimum success in exams. Second to this, I encourage wider reading and discussion to consolidate an understanding of the course content used in class. With exam revision I remind students to identify relevant and irrelevant factors and to break their revision down into memorable bullet points. With coursework essays I remind students to consider their writing against what is asked of them in the mark scheme, ensuring that they fulfil all criteria for the top mark bracket.
I’m going to sail all the way from the UK to the Mediterranean sea during the summer!
