I am a highly committed, passionate and focused Masters graduate with six years of experience in the arts, and several years of experience in geography and English literature.
I have a magna cum laude masters degree at Leiden University in Art, Architecture and Interior pre1800s, following my Bachelors at the University of Exeter in Art History and Visual Culture. My background of a higher education in the arts has left me in great support of learning creatively and visually. I have learnt through first-hand experience that it is often the most unusual, out-of-the-box learning techniques which allow us to retain and intelligently apply information. I continuously applied these techniques from sixth form into university applications, and finally to my studies at university with great success.
I have experience in a diverse body of educational environments with a wide-range of age groups.
From guiding members of the elderly through the set up and use of their technological devices at 'Tech and Tea' events in Clapham to teaching school and university level students to sing Accapella compositions, I have learnt through first-hand experience that it is often the most unusual, out-of-the-box learning techniques which allow us to retain and intelligently apply information.
I seek to deliver engaging and creative lessons that place the needs of the student at the heart.
I offer individual tuition in Geography, Art History and English Literature at A-level, GCSE and iGCSE levels, with all exam boards.
My lessons last approximately 60 minutes.
I work closely with my students to build a long-term lesson plan around their specific goals and needs. I then develop my techniques around the learning methods which my students respond best to - whether it be creating mind maps or anecdotes to remember key pieces of information or simply going through past papers to develop clearer, more concise answers.
The regularity of lessons tends to be one per week, however I am also able to increase the number of lessons if required, or alternatively, work on a fortnightly basis.
