Information about Isa
I recently graduated from Oxford with a Geography BA. I specialised in geopolitics and gender studies, but also covered a whole range of physical geography as well. I am now working for a grassroots organisation that offers legal assistance to asylum seekers in Greece, and want to pursue a career in humanitarian law. I am currently learning Farsi (Persian), so I am a student myself!
Often geography is not taught is a particularly inspiring, interesting or relevant way in schools, but it can be! I want to change peoples perceptions and show it is a really important subject which deals with the most pressing issues in society such as climate change, the refugee crisis, neo-colonial power relations and even Brexit and corona-virus! My sessions reflect my passion for the subject. They are designed to be student led, and often`s ends up with the student teaching me! I use creative teaching methods and encourage my students to find their areas of interest and pursue their own extended reading.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Availability: I am free 7 days a week.

Experience: I have over 100 hours tutoring experience in Geography, Maths and Admissions Counselling from the last 5 years. This covers GCSE to pre-degree level. I have also taught a whole range of capabilities, to students with top grades looking for extended reading and challenge, to students whose English isn`t even their first language. I love the challenge of both these situations, and want to encourage all my students to meet and exceed their own expectations of themselves.
