I have recently completed a Master`s degree at Oxford University in Women`s Studies, focussing on Classical Greek history. Prior to that I completed a Bachelor`s degree in Ancient History at Bristol University where I came third in my year.
My main strengths lie in English and History where I was top of my year at school for both AS and A level and for this achievement won the Sixth Form Academic Prize. I undertook entrance exams for The King`s School, Canterbury and I believe that I would be very capable of giving students the rigorous academic training necessary to pass such exams.
As well as my academic achievements I enjoy ballet and singing and was a Senior News Reporter for the Bristol University Student Newspaper. While at Oxford University I used my skills of organisation and administration to start up a Gender Discussion Society at Oriel College which has been hugely successful.

Experience: I have a wealth of experience as a private tutor to children mainly in English and reading and writing skills. During my time as a tutor I coached two 11 year olds in an English writing competition and both got through to the final round with one child eventually going on to win the competition. Furthermore, a number of the children I taught who are native Chinese speakers went on to get places at prestigious schools in the UK. Contact this Tutor
My abilities in English, History and Religious Studies mean that I am very capable of tutoring children and young people in these subjects in order to provide them with the tools to succeed in examinations from 11+ to A Level.
