Information about Kiran
I am a recent BSc Geography graduate of Royal Holloway University of London and current Masters student (MSc Development Studies) of LSE (London School of Economics). Before university I attended Dr Challoner`s High School from Year 7-13 where I achieved strong GCSE and A-Level qualifications. My chosen A-level subjects were Geography, Maths and Economics; having Maths as part of my selection means I am very proficient in the statistics side of geographical disciplines. I enjoy both physical and human geography but have favoured human modules during my undergraduate study.
Being a young tutor I am very familiar with current specifications and exam techniques having done them myself just a few years ago. Additionally, I have access to quality university standard resources which I can use to enhance learning and understandings of specific areas of interest. I am very friendly and thoroughly enjoy teaching! As well as this I have a wealth of experience in tutoring and working with primary to secondary school aged children both in and out of classroom environments. I am based in Amersham, Buckinghamshire and am happy to tutor in person and online.

Experience: - Geography Mentor, Dr Challoners High School: During my time as an A-Level student I was elected by my teachers to help younger years (mainly GCSE students) who were struggling with the subject and needed extra teaching.
- Tutoring experience: I have previous experience in one to one tutoring of A-Level geography students whilst I was in my final year of my undergraduate study. Therefore I am very familiar with the course content and coursework (NEA).
- Sports Mentor, RHWFC: As a key committee member of my university sports team I volunteered in countless events involving teaching and communicating with school pupils.
- Prefect, Dr Challoners High School: During my Sixth Form years at DCHS I was given a prefect role in which I led weekly form activities with a Year 9 class. Across my time prefecting I developed strong bonds and key skills in working with younger students, I hugely enjoyed my time as a prefect.
Feedback For Kiran (3)
Kiran has been extremely helpful in tutoring me for A level Geography :-) her lessons are always interactive and I`m catching up quickly.
Kiran is a great teacher; and allows my daughter as a student to give her own ideas to her full capability until assisting her to form a full argument. Especially in essay plans that they have done, they have both worked collaboratively to give the best plan that my daughter can present and write up in her own essay. Overall Kiran has been an excellent help to my daughter and we will continue to use her until the A-Level Exam date.
My daughters confidence has improved massively since starting her tuition with Kiran. She has improved her exam answers and has been working on her evaluation skills too, which was an area for development. I would highly recommend Kiran.
