I am currently a final-year undergraduate studying History at University College London (UCL).
Prior to university, I was awarded a Headmaster's Scholarship to attend King Edward's School in Bath. I completed my A-levels with three A*s and three academic prizes.
I have received first-class marks in both my first (74%) and second (77%) years at UCL. I was also the recipient of a Laidlaw Scholarship and two travel grants.
Studying at university, as well as recently completing Sixth Form, provides me with a unique perspective to tackle the problems of students. I have two years of experience tutoring both GCSE and A-level History, English grammar, and GCSE English. I have also tutored students for 11+ and 13+ entrance examinations.
During my tutoring experience, I have found the key problem students have is structuring their thoughts in accordance with the mark scheme. In my experience, the fastest and most effective way to improve this is through trial and error. I promise to set, mark and comment upon as many essays as my tutees can write. In so doing, I have found my students internalise the essay format examiners prefer, can unify their thoughts with greater ease and become proficient writers.
