About me

I've been tutoring since I graduated from Oxford in 2015, and doing so full-time since completing my Master's in 2017. I've worked with a range of students in a variety of contexts, including teaching A-level Politics in a top secondary school in London. In my spare time, I play guitar and write songs and stories.

Tutor Experience

I began tutoring in autumn 2015, starting with GCSE English in my local area. I continued with some online work during my Master’s degree, and since then have made tutoring my main career. I have several students with whom I run regular weekly sessions, and others with whom I meet as work demands, especially around coursework deadlines and exam season. Tutoring provides me the opportunity to continue to engage with the subjects I spent years of my life studying – it’s a learning opportunity as much as a job, and this keeps me excited and engaged. I also love the social side of meeting with students and nurturing their interest – either helping struggling students come around to a subject, or bolstering already keen students’ achievements.

I tailor my lessons to what my students are struggling with, and pride myself on my ability to adjust to their needs. I bring current affairs into my classes in engaging ways, giving students a variety of examples to make sense of and test their knowledge. In general, I teach in an instructive manner, ensuring my students emerge from lessons with good notes. Once a solid base has been built up, I work intensely on essay and past question plans, teaching my students how to best meet the demands of exams and coursework.
