I graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in History and German. I specialised in Modern European History, with a particular focus on Germany. I have now just completed an MPhil at the University of Cambridge in Modern European History, with modern German history being my particular speciality. I also greatly enjoy music as well as playing oboe and piano. Travelling is also something else I love.
I have been tutoring since 2014. I worked as a tutor throughout my time as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford and graduate at the University of Cambridge. Every pupil has different requirements, and I always tailor my lessons and approach accordingly in order to help them develop academically, and hopefully enjoy this process.
During my time as a tutor I have taught a range of subjects to pupils at different levels, including English, History, Maths, German, Latin and Greek. I have had great success helping pupils prepare for their A Levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance and 11+ exams. Equally I have helped older students with university admissions, and have successfully helped pupils with entrance exam preparation for the University of Oxford. In terms of helping prepare pupils for admissions exams, I have a broad knowledge of different schools across London and outside of it, and what each one requires of its students.
Schools I have tutored pupils for admissions include:
St Paul's Boys School (which I attended)
St Paul's Girls School

Vivid Subject:English (Common Entrance) Outcome:Passed both Entrance exams 'Tristan has played a key role in preparing my son to the Oxford Interview which resulted in receiving an offer! The subjects he helped with were History & German.' Eduard Subject: History Outcome: An offer from The University of Oxford 'Tristan patiently tutored my son for GCSE German. My son is not naturally a linguist and yet Tristan managed to get him to understand the grammar and learn the vocabulary with marvellous results. He really is a miracle worker. And charming too.'

I have tutored for over 6 years as a freelance tutor.
