I have recently graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Law from the University of Durham. I have significant experience in tutoring students in a variety of subjects including French, History, Geography, Maths, English, Sciences and Law from Common Entrance to A Level and Degree standard.
I have considerable experience in tutoring students for Common Entrance. I have recently prepared students for the 11+ exam to leading Oxford girls schools such as Oxford High and Headington. I understand the requirements of the examinations and can help students across all aspects of the papers.
I also have a great deal of experience in preparing students for GCSEs and A Levels across a range of subjects. My focus is not only on improving a student's understanding of a topic but also ensuring that they feel confident in performing to the best of their abilities in the examination itself. I also believe it is essential to improve a student's confidence so that they feel motivated to take control of their own learning and academic career. A recent student of mine greatly exceeded her target grade for her English GCSE, achieving an 8 when she hoped for a 6.
Finally, I have helped students studying Law at University across a range of different modules. This has involved explaining certain topics, or helping with problem questions and essay structures. With my help, one student told me that she was ahead of her class and felt confident to participate in seminar group discussions in a way she had not been able to previously.
I work hard to find bespoke methods to help each individual student. No one learns in the exact same way and, therefore, I aim to connect with each tutee on a personal level to identify certain teaching practices which will maximise their learning. This may involve making mind maps, asking the student questions to confirm their understanding, answering past paper questions, and helping them to organise their own notes. I prepare carefully before each lesson so that my tutees can progress as much as possible in the time we have.
In my own time, I am a keen musician, actor, tennis player and swimmer.
I look forward to hearing from you, and please do get in touch if you have any questions.
