2015-2018: Achieved a First in Geography at Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge.

My dissertation was awarded the Cambridge University William Vaughan Lewis Dissertation Prize and has been nominated for the Royal Geographical Society Quaternary Research Association Undergraduate Dissertation Prize. In addition to this, I was invited and attended the 10th World Dendrochronology Conference in Bhutan to discuss my dissertation findings.

2013-2015: At Watford Grammar School for Girls I achieved A-Levels in Geography (A*), Chemistry (A*) and Mathematics (A) and an AS-Level in Economics (A). I was awarded with the Geography Prize for the highest Geography A-Level Grade in the year.

In addition to academia, I have completed a number of Internships within the Finance Industry including; Wealth Management at J.P. Morgan (10 weeks, 2018), Equity Research at Fidelity International (8 weeks, 2017), Equity Sales at Nomura Holdings (2 weeks, 2016) and a Generalist Program at Morgan Stanley (1 week, 2014).

My Approach to Private Tuition

Students should see learning as an opportunity rather than a chore. By developing a strong rapport with the student, I am able to identify their interests in order to make the subject more relatable. One way I achieve this is by using recent real-life case studies from extra reading. I believe this is vital to success as when someone is passionate about a topic they find work more enjoyable and are consequently more productive.

The style and structure of the sessions will be dependent on what the student requires. I work with the student to develop overall aims and individual lesson objectives. This provides both a structure and a method to track the progress made over the lessons. In addition, across all sessions I will pay close attention to the required specification and the relevant exam techniques.

I believe this combination of interest, knowledge and technical skills will help the student fulfill their goals.
