Hard-working, driven and ambitious - I achieved 6A*’s and 4A’s in my GCSE’s, 3A’s at A level. I understand what it means to succeed under the pressures of the modern education system and how to best tackle individuals with great empathy having so recently been through the same experiences. I will be attending the University of Durham in 2020 to read history. My skills go beyond just academic tutoring as I can help with applications to premium UK universities and am a talented Clarinetist with Grade 8 ABRSM.

Tutoring experience

As an academic captain of my school I was responsible for the achievements and welfare of a cohort of 50 boys, this has given me a unique method of helping individuals with their studies. I received an academic scholarship to attend Christ’s Hospital which was renewed for Sixth Form, this opportunity afforded me a premium education from which I can draw experience.

Approach to tutoring

Friendly and empathetic, I am able to help individuals isolate and tackle the problems they come into contact with during studies. I believe firmly that everyone has their own methods of learning which are too often ignored by schools. Patience, understanding and building a strong relationship is essential in helping someone succeed in achieving their goals
