About Me

My teaching style is flexible and adaptable to your educational needs. I can help with everything from curriculum understanding to homework help to essay-writing practice and examination prep. I am especially good at working with students methodically to make fluid, abstract concepts more manageable and increase student confidence in their own abilities to self-produce study aids and techniques.

When I'm not tutoring I'm a doctoral student on the CULTIVATE MSS project at the University of London. I cycle everywhere if I can get away with it, and travel as much as possible, most recently Germany, Morocco, and Cambodia. I participate in local London-based community gardening projects and have a regular pottery practice.

Tutor Experience

My secondary education was comprised of the IB Diploma, in which I received the full 3 bonus points and graduated with a commendation. I am familiar with IB Higher Level and Standard Level curricula, but also able to tutor A-Levels and GCSE.

I completed my undergraduate degree in History at King`s College London and graduated with a distinguished First, winning the Elizabeth Levett Memorial Prize in History for the highest dissertation mark. My interests are far-ranging and cover 20th-century world affairs, Tudors, Stewarts, and the early modern period in England, and the medieval world. I wrote two extended theses in this period, both of which received marks over 70.

In 2016 I received a Masters in History from the University of Oxford, with an emphasis on medieval history and textual history including book production and medieval script, and produced a thesis of 25,000 words. I have had papers accepted at multiple conferences around the country and am available for proofreading and editing as well as subject tutoring.

Client Reviews

My final session with Olivia was so helpful. It was useful in giving me the final push for my exam. Olivia has been an amazing teacher and I wish I had discovered during my actual A Levels so I wouldn't have to have condensed History and had to have rush it the way that I have. I wish her all the best and hope to stay in touch
