About Camille

Oxford University Graduate of English Language & Literature

I graduated from Oriel College, Oxford in July 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Language and Literature. Throughout my school career I have balanced academic life with competitive tennis as a government funded, semi-professional player. This required huge drive and efficiency, for which I was rewarded with a stellar set of results at both GCSE and A-Level and a place at Oxford. Before starting my degree, I began tutoring part-time and have since helped children of a range of ages and abilities achieve similar academic excellence. I specialise in entrance to the UK's top schools, and have tutored students towards 7+, 8+, 11+ and Common Entrance to Westminster, St. Paul's and King's College to name a few. I am also interested in preparing students for Oxbridge entrance, and look to develop a student's passion for subjects beyond the syllabus not only immediately preceding their application, but in the years prior. I wish to help as many students as possible reach their desired academic goals and hugely enjoy transferring my own knowledge to my young protégées.

I began tutoring four years ago, whilst training as a tennis player on the WTA circuit, pre-Oxford. I worked with children of a variety of ages and abilities, covering KS1 & 2 Numeracy and Literacy, YR 7 & 8 English, Maths and School Entrance Exams, YR9 Common Entrance Prep, YR 10 & 11 GCSE Prep and A-Level English. Since graduating from Oxford I have tutored full time, focusing on Entrance Prep to top schools such as Westminster, St. Paul's and King's College. I specialise in English, a subject that is particularly rewarding to teach as general improvements in the student's reading and writing skills have ramifications across many of their other subjects. This is especially apparent with students who are under-performing, which I find is often remedied by simply altering their methods of approach to certain exercises. I find tutoring older students equally rewarding and have assisted a number at GCSE-level. I was also the sole teacher for an AS-Level English student, whom I taught over Skype. At A-Level standard, I specialise in English, History and Classics, and encourage my students to explore critical material surrounding their subject, attend lectures etc. to prepare them for University as well as their exams. In the future, I hope to focus more on applications to top universities such as Oxbridge and equivalent high-performing establishments.
