About me

It is my interest in my subjects beyond the curriculum which helps me to be a good tutor. I enjoy sewing historical and literary costumes, visiting exciting new exhibitions, as well as creative writing and literary critique, for which I have won awards. I have also travelled around much of Europe and visited non-European countries such as Morocco, India, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.

Tutor Experience

I have just completed a postgraduate degree (MPhil) at the University of Oxford and also have a BA in History (Honours) from Oxford. I received A*A*A*A at A Level in History, German, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation. While I am relatively new to Spires, I have over 400 hours of experience on other tutoring sites, tutoring a great variety of topics and exam boards. I have received only 5* ratings and reviews for this, both here and on other sites.

The experience that I have gained from observing lessons and teaching supervised classes in schools has taught me that interactive teaching is the gateway to academic achievement. I will use a variety of methods such as mind maps, acronyms, quizzes and diagrams to help you reach the next academic level. I want to help you get to grips with the subject material, while giving you the confidence to use the right exam and essay techniques to get the grades you deserve. Everyone learns differently so I will tailor my teaching to your learning style and exam board. I look forward to hearing from you.
