I'm an enthusiastic 21 year-old university student studying History and Politics at Oxford University, specialising in tutoring English language and literature and History from Key Stage 1 to A-level standard, but also tutor 11+, verbal reasoning and music theory of up to grade 4 standard. I have extensive tutoring experience from over the past 7 years and am currently on track to receive a 1st at university in History and Politics. I advocate discussion and debate with analysis of literature, encouraging the student to form alternative and personal interpretations to get under the skin of texts and source material. I am open to suggestion by the student themselves concerning the direction of the lessons and will shape the lessons around each student's needs. I set up a tutoring group that ran for 6 years from when I was thirteen, teaching classes of around five or six 10-11 year olds in 11+, English, maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. I had a 100% success rate, with all of my pupils going on to their 1st choice of school and passing their 11+ exams. I also tutored a GCSE student for a period of six months in English, maths and music, leading her to achieve As in music and maths and an A* in English Literature. I have recently tutored multiple students for their A-levels and GCSEs in History and English literature and language, with them all going on to achieve grades A*-B. I am dedicated and passionate about helping my students to succeed and always love learning as much from them as they do from me.
