I have quite a wide range of interests so I'm always very busy! I love music (both classical and contemporary): I sing and I play the violin (I'm in an orchestra at the moment) and piano. I am passionate about social justice, so I'm often involved in activist campaigns and politics. My other hobbies include cooking, yoga and knitting.
I think that a good tutor combines academic ability with an ability to understand how frustrating it is when you don't understand something. I feel that I can offer both.
In terms of academic ability and experience, I have just graduated from the University of Oxford with a First Class degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. I am an ambitious and driven person, but equally I know what it feels like to be stuck with an idea or topic (this has happened to me many times over my academic career!) so I can offer support in dealing with these difficulties. In terms of teaching experience, last year I volunteered as a teacher in India, teaching classes of 30 in a wide range of subjects. Given that there was a language barrier, I had to communicate complex ideas in simple terms and sustain their attention. I also worked as an Academic Mentor for Wadham College Politics Summer School, which involved discussing ideas with students, giving feedback on their essays, and advising them about applying to Oxford.
