My name is Esme and I am 29 years old. I come from Suffolk originally but I have been living in Dorset for the last three years, where I work for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in Poole. My role allows me a great work-life balance and I would love to use my spare time to tutor local students to improve their confidence and exam performance.
I have a strong academic background; I achieved straight A* grades in my GCSEs and straight A grades in Psychology, Geography, Biology and Chemistry in my A Levels (I sat these before the A* grade existed for A Levels). I went on to study at the University of Cambridge where I graduated with a First Class degree in Biological Anthropology. I then completed a Masters degree in Publishing at Anglia Ruskin University, graduating with Distinction.
In all, my academic background gives me a strong grounding to tutor Science, English, History and Geography at GCSE level, as well as Psychology, Biology and Geography at A level.
I am friendly and approachable and always want people to achieve their best. I am a clear communicator and am skilled at breaking topics down into manageable chunks and explaining concepts to ensure that others can understand them. I am also a good listener and adept at interpreting the concerns and needs of students to ensure sessions are tailored to provide the maximum learning outcomes.
Upon commencing a tutoring relationship, I will first work with students to define their goals, and assess learning style and preferred approaches. I will then ensure we work through core topics and past papers to improve understanding, knowledge recall and exam performance.
Availability: During the week I am available in the evenings from 6pm, and I am also available all day on alternate Mondays. For the majority of weekends, I am available all day on Saturday and Sunday.
I am willing to travel outside of Christchurch but I do not currently drive so I would need to consider whether the location was reasonably accessible either by bike or by public transport.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have previously worked as a Teaching Assistant at a boarding school in Australia.Contact this Tutor
Additionally I tutored high school students in Cambridge whilst I was at University.
