About Holly

Post-graduate student and experienced tutor

PhD student at UCL. My name is Holly Bradley and I am 22 years old, I am looking for regular tutoring jobs in London ranging from infants to mature students.
I obtained all A - A* at GCSE, and A*AAAA* at A Level, a first class BA (Hons) degree in Linguistics with Mandarin Chinese from Lancaster University. I am now doing a ESRC funded MRes and PhD at UCL in the faculty of brain and language sciences. I have just finished my MRes and I am now into my first year of my PhD.
I have experience marking and helping students write undergraduate essays, I have also had experience teaching advanced grammar at Greenhead College, Huddersfield. On top of this I have worked at Lancaster University as a Mandarin Chinese tutor to both English and Chinese students.
My PhD research concerns child development and so working and helping children is something that I have a lot of experience with and genuinely enjoy. I also have experience teaching peers my own age and older adults and so I can vary my tutoring skills accordingly.
My specialities for tutoring would be English of all kinds (ranging from grammar to poetry analysis and accent help), although I also have good knowledge regarding economics and the sciences and a stable knowledge in all base subjects.
Hourly rate: £30.00
Type of tutoring: In-person and Online
Your first lesson is protected by our Money Back Guarantee
Lesson cancellation: at least 24 hours notice required

Degree level help

Written by Chloe S
Holly tutored me for linguistic modules several times! She always managed to turn complex explanations into simpler bits of information that often made me think "why didn't I think of that before!?" She was patient and encouraging, and went about explaining things in a number of ways to ensure I fully understood. We went over past exam papers and Holly was so helpful, I'd go into my actual exams with her advice echoing in my head.
Not only is she an amazing tutor but she's also so friendly!
Subject:
Academic
Outcome:
I highly doubt I'd have passed two of my exams without her. Not being dramatic but I simply never "got" one of my modules until Holly made me look at the concepts in a different way (pa

Tutor reference for Holly Bradley

Written by Joshua S
To whom it may concern,

Holly Bradley is an intelligent, committed, engaging and friendly individual. I knew Holly during the final stages of her studies for her under graduate degree. During which, I found that she was an extremely high performer, consistently obtaining extremely high grades as well as someone who was extremely well liked and was seen as a ‘go to’ person for help with linguistics.

During the final year, for a particularly difficult module, Holly coached a peer from near to no understanding of the subject to the point where the individual achieved a first in the final year exams.
Subject:
English Language
Outcome:
As outlined above, Holly has all of the key skills to being a tutor. She has a deep understanding of the subject she studies whilst also having the ability to engage people as well portray and explain

Holly is a fantastic individual who is driven and always succeeds in attaining great results. She has shown this quality for a long period now and her thirst for success and achievement would benefit the person she would tutor greatly.

One to One Tuition

Written by Tremaine K
Holly was my absolute saviour during my second year at college. After just scrapping a C in my AS at English Language I really had a massive uphill battle to gain a B in my A-Level overall. As we were classroom buddies Holly eventually took it upon herself after seeing me struggle to arrange twice weekly tutorial sessions with me, working on the aspects of the previous year I hadn't grasped, current topics, as well as adding in her own advanced knowledge on topics which overall aided me massively. Not only did I begin to suddenly leap from C's to A's in essays and classroom work, I also actually began to enjoy the subject and was regularly called upon by our main tutor at the progress I had made.

I found it incredible that despite taking on her own A-Levels she still found 2 separate periods every week in the last term to sit with me in a quiet location and go through my own personal classroom work, upcoming assignments and even small pieces Holly herself had set me as mini homework pieces she felt fit me personally compared to the mass homework's set by the classroom tutor.

Overall Holly is an incredible woman with such a warm friendly personality and a striking ability to be able to identify and aid areas that may need a slight more push. She's incredible and I owe my entire A-Level in English Language to this amazing woman.
Subject:
English Language
Outcome:
Moving up a whole grade boundary in only one term. A final B at A-Level in English Language, made from a C in first year and a B in second.
