I have been a private tutor since graduating from university in 2014. My academic career began at an international secondary school, I took the International Baccalaureate with Higher Level English, History and Visual Arts and my extended essay discussed whether the church is a building or it’s people. After a gap year, during which I worked for a charity and travelled in India and Europe, I attended the University of Manchester. Upon completion I was awarded a 2:1 in the Study of Religions & Theology.
Tutoring is a personal passion. I enjoy teaching; diving into academic study and showing students how rich it can be. We tackle challenging material unravelling its intricacies then analysing its ideas. The techniques I teach my students are tried and tested methods I’ve used for the last 10 years.
Through my lessons all students make improvements. One student in particular made massive improvements. She was studying for a her GCSEs and struggling. Her History and Religion marks were stuck at 56%. After 6 months of lessons she jumped to a massive 85% in her GCSE mocks! Needless to say, she, her parents and I were very happy!
