Robyndra Allen History, English and Oxbridge Tutor PGCE, Bachelors

  • Travels 5.0 miles
  • Online Tuition

I am an Oxford University Graduate and PGCE student. I predominantly teach History, Classical Civilisations, Ancient History and English!  I have worked as a private tutor and a secondary school teacher in a rural, high achieving, state school since September 2020. I have taught students from KS3 to A-Level. 

I am passionate about helping young people, of all skill sets, and providing them with the tools to achieve academically and otherwise. I believe it is vital to empower students to think independently and to become successful adults with critical thinking skills. 

About Me

Struggling with special educational needs at school myself, I fought hard to convince others of my academic potential and achieve straight A's and A*s. I then worked hard to gain a place at Oxford in 2017. I have studied there for the past three years achieving a 2:1, despite the coronavirus pandemic affecting my final exams.

I grew up in an immigrant family where the importance of education for personal and social progress was always highlighted to me and I became passionate about it myself, embarking on a PGCE this year. 

Outside of academia, I have extensive musical theatre and acting training and ran a large, for-profit, student theatre in 2019. 

Services

Currently working online only. I have experience in teaching gifted and talented students, as well as those with special needs. This experience means that I believe in tailor-made tutoring - classes based around the specific weaknesses and goals of the student, as identified by them or their parent/guardian. I always offer a free online consultation to assess whether I am the right fit for the student, prior to embarking on a course of teaching. 

I can help students with; Exam Technique, Essay Writing, Spelling and Grammar, Content Retrieval, Coursework, Motivation and Confidence issues.

Qualifications

    Studying Archaeology and Ancient History with such intensity refined my essay writing and analytic skills. The tutorial system of teaching means I am familiar and comfortable with communicating academic information.

    Robyn has been helping my daughter Anastasia (year 10) with her school work (English, History and Physics) for the past three months. I have to say she has been nothing short of brilliant. Not only is she an extremely keen and capable operator, but professional. Anastasia often struggles with concentration and confidence and as a result has struggled to work with tutors in the past. However, Robyn has helped my daughter considerably in overcoming both of these things during her time working with us so far. Furthermore, Anastasia has seen a marked improvement in her attainment level, both in a casual sense and in terms of more formal assessment, with even her teachers commenting on this.
