I graduated from Cambridge last year, and wrote more than 50 essays over my time, and read even more books! I have learnt the hard way how to write a good essay, and how to read efficiently.
I miss studying and learning new things, but tutoring helps me to keep this up!
Because I have graduated I have more time for you!
I have taught a variety of adults and children from a wide range of backgrounds. I am currently running creative writing workshops for homeless, migrant, and LGBT+ groups in Cambridge, which has given me a huge variety of communication skills, with people both older and younger than myself. After teaching English in South Korea for a month last summer, there is no teaching challenge too big. I have learnt how to be clear and precise from working with people with English as a second language. I have taught sailing for 10 years at my sailing club. This requires teaching young people and adults complex pieces of theory, and most importantly, making these interesting to learn.
Firstly, it is crucial with exam based subjects that a tutee should target qualified teachers (with QTS) as they have conversed with the current changes that have taken place with GCSE and A-Levels. They are aware of syllabus amendments and have a range of tools to support how to interpret command verbs within the exam.
I am a qualified teacher (with QTS) that has over 10 years leading several departments in Computing, Business, ICT and Design across a range of qualifications and exam boards. As a result of this and exam board work (working as an exam marker), I feel I understand what is required to pass the exams.
The exam board experience stems over a range of exam boards (OCR, Pearsons, AQA and CIE) completing a variety of roles, from verifying coursework to exam marking and leading exam markers.
Both teaching and exam board commitments compliment each other, seeing the teaching misconceptions and to get the exam marks, with great success in my teaching.
I have a good understanding of assessment needs to qualify for the higher Level questions in exam papers which have proven successful (primarily focusing on the command verbs in the question) which can be a focus within the online lessons.
I have mentored and tutored on other websites and in undergraduate classes.
I have helped students submit prose composition pieces for school awards via webcam. I marked the student's submitted piece and we went over this together. I feel that reflecting over one's own work is the best way to improve. It required clear and thoughtful analysis to explain linguistic features to my student. I also like to make learning the language tie in with a familiarization with the cultural and literary context of the ancient world. This allows students to develop an insight into the society of the Greeks and Romans.
I have also taught linguistic features, such as the Greek aorist tense, to fellow students in student-led classroom sessions. This helped me to understand the subject matter on a deeper level, so that I have come to value teaching. I would ask my students to explain to me their understanding of certain things so that the lesson would be more of a conversations and discourse than a strict lecture.
In my years at Cambridge I have come to understand what it is that my DoS (Director of Studies) and supervisors expect of students. I shall aim to direct the lessons with a view to how supervisions are conducted. The interview process wants to see whether students are apt for such a teaching format. As well as interview help I can also give insight on how to make a strong applicati...
I cannot lie, I do love a good essay.
But I also enjoy discussing and debating endlessly about theatre, books and films - academically, critically and for fun!
From Shakespeare to Sarah Kane, The Great Gatsby to The Hunger Games, Chinatown to Frozen - I am happy to read and watch anything you want to talk about, to help you in your studies!
In this final year of my degree, my studies have been narrowed down to:
Children's Literature (everything from picturebooks to YA!), a personal research project on poetry and memory, Modern Drama (from the 1950s to the modern day - in England and internationally), the Psychology of Education (Attachment theory, motivational theory, executive functions....) and Creativity and Thinking (mostly philosophical and sociological approach to what it means to be 'creative').
However, I have previously studied all sorts of other topics at degree level such as the history and philosophy of education, Poetry, Classic fiction, Film, and many more!
Additionally, I have often helped out with Access events in my college - and know quite a lot about the application process and interviews, if you have any questions!
I'm a friendly, approachable, smiley person - I have experience teaching English in China, running drama workshops, giving talks and presentations and generally just helping my friends out with their essays since I was in high school.
I have previously tutored many subjects, including English, Spanish, and History. Although I primarily study history and archaeology, I am passionate about numerous topics and this translates into fun and insightful tutoring. I have also been a docent at an art museum, where I learned methods of communicating the objects to the public in an engaging manner.
Oxford and Cambridge are made unique by their tutorial system: one-on-one, hour-long tutorials between students and some of the world's top academics in their field. After three years in Oxford's tutorial system, my ambition is to use those experiences to train and help students toward success as a tutor myself.
At Magdalen College, Oxford I studied at the most competitive college for Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at the university. The secret to success is a mix of the support around you and hard work. I can provide the support, and encouragement you need to perform to the best of your ability.
After studying PPE, I took a law conversion and a masters in law (LLM). This has further honed my skills and experience with essay writing, and I am very well qualified to provide essay feedback to help you pick up those easy marks you are missing on structure and presentation.
Once we have fixed those essentials, we can ensure you are an top of the material in your subject and make it interesting. The social sciences and humanities are exciting subjects and,min we can make them interesting, they become easier to understand and - if you are lucky - even enjoy.
My teaching style is relaxed, friendly, but focused. I will put your best interests at the heart of my work.
I look forward to meeting you.
My (bilingual) pre-university education consisted of 13 different subjects, which I all passed. My main interest lies with history, geography, and languages, but I can assist you with maths and sciences as well. As I graduated from the University of Oxford with an MSc in Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition, I am very experienced in teaching you how to learn languages and how to develop a 'feel for language'. Moreover, I am a certified teacher and have taught over 500 students in various subjects, both in groups, as well as one-on-one.
I look forward to helping you with your subjects!
