My Experience

Teaching Assistant from April 2018 to present, working as a one-to-one Intervention Tutor in a Sixth Form. Primarily focused on Humanities subjects, such as History, English Literature, and Government and Politics. The exam board was usually AQA and Edexcel, but the material is easily adaptable to other boards.

Teacher in China, July 2015, teaching English Language and History, to roughly year 7-8 equivalents, through a translator and on a class basis.

Ad-hoc tutoring to friends and family.

My Qualifications

2:1, BA History from Oxford
AAA, History, English Literature and Computing from Sussex Downs College

My Approach to Private Tuition

Hands-on, direct, and down to earth – lots of testing, lectures and past papers! I adapt my style based on the ability and existing knowledge of the student, but regardless I always hold my students to as high a standard as possible, in order to ensure effective learning.

Fun fact

I’m learning Russian in my spare time – perhaps I’ll be able to teach that too someday!
