Enthusiastic and friendly History and English tutor
I am a friendly, enthusiastic and supportive tutor with a First class History degree from the University of Edinburgh. I work in the editorial team for a huge academic publishing company, which has given me the ability to proof read essays and books, checking grammar, spelling etc. with a keen eye for detail. Whilst at university, I tutored foreign students, as well as acting as peer mentor for younger students in the university. I have also worked with young children, both teaching abroad through a volunteer programme in India, and teaching children how to swim and horse-back ride. The skills I learned through these activities have definitely prepared me for tutoring in my chosen topics.
As I have only just graduated, I am fully aware of the demands of the education system that are on students at all levels of schooling, and I truly feel that I can connect with students through this understanding. Being close to the education system, I would like to share my knowledge and skills learned with other students coming up through the ranks towards higher education, and feel confident that I can help them prepare for the next stage when they come to the end of each one.
Having always worked around children and peers whilst at school and university, I would love to help out with tutoring at any level in my preferred topic of History (which I have also spent a year studying abroad in the United States) as well as in English/English Literature and Psychology up to A-Level standards.
I offer a professional yet warm tutoring style, with a willingness to adapt my teaching style for each individual student, depending on preference and academic level.
I am open to tutoring online, and I am also willing to travel within Reading either to a student's home, or to a public space such as a library or coffee shop. Please do get in touch if you would like a supportive tutor who can work flexibly around your needs and who understands what it is like to experience the pressures of each type of qualification!
