I have spent numerous years of my life in education and these are years that I have truly enjoyed. Not only have I been educated to high standards in a broad range of subjects, but I also found a great deal of inspiration in my learning experiences, often from my teachers themselves. I have an inquisitiveness and intrigue for the world, which I am keen to share with others. I therefore would love the opportunity to be able to share, not only my acquired knowledge, but also this inspiration, with others through tutoring. Watching other people develop is something I really enjoy, and the intimate relationship developed through individual tutoring makes this experience even more rewarding. I am confident in my abilities to help others in their own personal goals, and would be able to adapt my approach according to their own personal needs. I have good people skills, having grown up and worked with all kinds of people, and am able to assess personalities and my approach accordingly. I am patient, hard working, reliable, have excellent time management and organisational skills and overall see myself as a good role model. My English degree reinforced in me the need for dedication and self motivation when working towards a project, and alongside the knowledge and skills I will provide any student with, I will also aim to instil in them these character traits and methods of approach to learning.

Experience: Facilitating art `crits` at the Royal College of Arts with masters students. I lead group discussions of a collection of students` works prior to their graduation.

Successfully preparing students for GCSE, AS and A2 years of study and examinations. Most recently I have been tutoring an A level student, helping to prepare him for his English and History examinations. I have enhanced his understanding of topics within the individual subjects, as well as helping him to develop his ideas comprehensively so as to prepare him to answer longer essay questions with detailed accuracy.
