I've tutored to A-level standard since I was a teenager and have worked part-time as tutor with Oxbridge Applications tutoring university entrance for the past 6 years.
As a PhD student I also have a real passion for biological sciences and building knowledge for the sake of learning which I aim to pass on to my students.
Between successful applications to and interviewing prospective candidates for undergraduate, postgraduate and fellowship roles I have a tonne of experience with how to build a personal statement and present on previous work/interests.
I used to tutor A Level english literature, and spent a lot of time helping people with A level philosophy and psychology too. I'm also interested in access for Oxbridge students, and so have helped a range of people with personal statements in the past. I hope to go into teaching after university.
I have vast tutoring experience, in both Psychology and Geography. I also taught English in South Korea for an extended period of time, so have plenty of classroom experience!
I am very enthusiastic and determined. I love to make learning as fun and interactive as possible - you are never going to learn anything just staring a textbook, its all about the balance!! I have a great track record with my previous students, with many going on to apply for Oxford and Cambridge.
I have also studied educational psychology, hence have an understanding of the principles underlying the best methods for learning!
I have been providing private tuition since 2008 and have worked with a wide range of students, from the ages of 5-89! I pride myself on helping students and parents reach their educational goals. Recent successes include my students gaining entry to prestigious schools including Colet Court, Eton and Charterhouse, achieving A* grades in History, Philosophy and Psychology and helping my BA and MA students gain firsts in the History of Art and Philosophy. I am a passionate and engaging tutor who works hard to help my students achieve their aims and develop ways of thinking that will help them in all aspects of their future educational needs. I see my role not just as helping a student pass an exam or write an essay but giving students the skills that will mean that the student no longer needs tutoring and is able to meet any challenge that comes their way - to truly make students creative independent thinkers!
I believe my strengths as a tutor lays in several areas:
1) A wide knowledge and skill base to deal with various subjects and syllabi as well as an ability to address specific student needs.
2) The ability to combine the required course content with the practical skills which are necessary to show a student knows that content.
3) Knowing how to create a safe, receptive and creative environment with my pupils. A place where they are encouraged to think for themselves and grow as individuals as well as learning the content required to pass exams.
I applied to Cambridge to study Education; it's the field I want to work in later in life. I care about communicating ideas thoroughly, and in ways that make sense to people on their own terms. Educational reform, philosophy of education and arts education are what interest me in particular. In relation to these goals, I enjoy tutoring because it's an intimate educational context in which I can interact and communicate with someone in a useful and meaningful way.
Hi! I’m a recent Psychology graduate from Oxford University, and I am now pursuing postgraduate studies in Law. I achieved a high 2:1 in my degree and throughout my degree I consistently achieved top grades, including an award for outstanding exam results in second year.
I realized I had a knack for explaining things while I was still in school and I began tutoring friends and local children. Since then I have tutored students of different ages from all over the world. In the past I have also helped students with their personal statements so if you are considering applying for Psychology I would be happy to lend a hand.
For my degree I studied people, particularly how we learn and retain information. I aim to apply those principles to help you learn in the most efficient way possible and, of course, help you achieve the highest possible grades. I am able to quickly gauge student’s strengths and weak areas which help me tailor lessons to each student’s individual needs and maximize learning.
6 Solid years helping students from all ages, countries and ability to gain a better understanding of mathematics and statistics.
Key areas that I like to focus on his:
Keeping a steady pace, based on the learner
Allowing for exploration of the student to come to a solution on their own. I can chime in when needed, but I will guide you.
With training and experience in a proven method of successful communication, Motivational Interviewing, I am here to reflect and guide what you need.
Calculus, Probability, Statistics, Trigonometry, Geometry, Vectors, Distributions, Differential Equations, Graph theory, I could go on. Some times it is the student who upon explaining the problem, are they able to reach a conclusion.
I have been taking private tutorials for eight years now and have tutored over ninety students. I have taught students of all ages and have always had good results; those who have been preparing for exams have consistently moved up at least a grade; those who have been working towards entrance exams have gained their places. As well as subject specific tuition, I have also helped students who struggle to structure their work and have tutored a number of students applying to Oxford to read English, all of whom have gained their respective places. Indeed, I have been assisting Oxbridge Applications for five years: with outreach programmes, interview technique and the marking of countless personal statements. I have a very individual approach to tutoring, tailoring my method and focus to suit each student’s particular strengths and weaknesses. Broadly speaking my emphasis is on ensuring that the tutee improves not only their academic achievement but also their ability to recognise, for themselves, where and how their own work can be improved. I have found that this method results in a quicker and more thorough improvement across all subjects.
I have more than 600 hours of private teaching experience, including 35+ hours of online tutoring experience. I have helped more than 250 learners at various levels: secondary school, undergraduate and postgraduate.
Additionally, I have formal training in instructional methods having completed a pedagogical degree. I apply educational principles to make the learning experience enjoyable, effective, and useful.
My teaching philosophy is that everyone can learn, grow, and improve if they are guided in the right direction. Therefore, I will adapt my approach and find the one that works best for you.
At the same time, some of the techniques I have found to be effective are, linking the teaching material to real work experiences, regular feedback, and encouraging deep engagement with the material.
I am passionate about teaching and make the subjects I teach come alive. To me it matters that you learn something new and make progress, because I rejoice in my students' successes. Depending on your level and needs I adjust my teaching to you.
