About Chris

I am currently a doctoral researcher at the LSE's Department of International Relations (IR) - one of the world's leading universities for this subject. As part of my PhD, I have also been awarded ESRC funding, which is highly prestigious (only two awards are made by the department each year). While my specialism is in the politics and IR of East Asia, my broad training and experience mean that I have expertise in a range of IR and political theory, as well as regional expertise in the UK, Europe, US etc.

Previously I obtained a first-class undergraduate degree from Cambridge (Trinity College), and a distinction-grade master's degree from SOAS, University of London. My writing has been published in both academic and journalistic sources.

Between my undergraduate and master's degree, I trained as a lawyer and worked for three years at the top international firm Slaughter and May. Ultimately, however, I decided that a career in commercial law was not for me, and returned to university to pursue a career in academia and teaching.

About Dr Helen

I have a background in law, social policy, sociology, social psychology and criminology. However, I also support a range of subject areas and currently teach a numeracy and computer skills course, as well as tutoring social work, business, and law/social science students.

I offer:

- academic tutoring and skills development, including essay writing, engaging with subject matter, and how to form arguments

- dissertation/coursework support from inception to completion

- proof reading and editing

- holistic support, addressing any aspect of a student's life so that they are better able to focus on their studies

- career and future planning

I have a strong academic background and an in-depth knowledge of universities and what it takes to perform academically. I help my students to succeed on their own merit and to develop transferable skills such as writing and critical thinking. I work holistically with each student so that they can bring any aspect of their lives to the tutoring sessions to be addressed. This provides a confidential space and has a wider focus than more conventional forms of tutoring. My sessions are designed to support, challenge, inspire, and build confidence.

About Dr Toby

Archaeology, which I studied for my first degree, remains a passion of mine. As my academic career has progressed, I have moved slightly away from it in recent years but it remains an area of study which I still value a lot and try to engage with on a volunteer basis as regularly as possible. The shift I have experienced myself, changing from a science based degree to a far more humanities orientated degree, has really helped me to gain an insight into the scale of change many students can feel moving from GCSE to A-level and then to university and this has been reflected in my approach to tutoring. I always try to show my students that learning should be fun and not as daunting or intimidating as it may first seem. My greatest passion is teaching and I have always loved helping students find their own way around new concepts and also for me to learn from them, which is something with makes one-to-one teaching so fun.

Outside of education my other passions lie in the fields of art and computers. I combine these two interests in my own digital art which is something is really really enjoy. I believe that it is vial for people, no matter what stage of their life they are at, to remain in touch with the things they love and are passionate about, beyond their own schooling or career.

About Kyra

I am a recent graduate from Cambridge law, having gained a first in all three years of my university education. I have two years of experience assisting students in their law university applications, helping them acquire places at Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, KCL, LSE and Queen Mary. I can support students in all areas of their application, which includes their personal statements, admissions tests (LNAT and CLT), and the Oxbridge interview process. I personally scored 36/42 in the LNAT, a score much higher than Oxford's typical requirement of 28-30, and have helped numerous students understand how to tackle the types of questions presented to them, regardless of their English ability.

About Rhys

I fell into tutoring when offered some part-time tuition work, during my study of Linguistics and Spanish at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Roughly eight years later, tutoring has become my full-time profession, still with a focus on those two subjects, as well as university entrance to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities for a range of subjects. I am lucky to teach language and linguistics - two subjects which dovetail each other and continually provide new avenues for exploration. I have helped students improve their language grades at all levels, and achieve university offers from Oxbridge, Edinburgh, Bristol, and others. I take an informal but rigorous approach to tutoring, taking advantage of the personal, non-classroom relationship that tuition allows. I have a special (but rarely indulged!) interest in Old Norse and modern Icelandic.

About Will

I currently work in Scientific Communications. I spend my day ‘translating' complicated medical and research topics into engaging and informative content. With a great eye for detail I can quickly pinpoint ways to improve your personal statement and help you tick the right boxes for an admissions team.

I teach researchers how best to communicate their research to various audiences, ranging from healthcare professionals to patients. As the leader of several teams I look to get the best out of all my teammates; by nurturing strengths and identifying areas of improvement I do the same for my tutees.
