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.

Experience

For the past thirteen years I have provided tuition in economics, philosophy, mathematics and psychology on a full-time basis, ranging from KS1 all the way through to PhD level. I have also provided coaching for Oxbridge interviews through the charity Teach First.

I have taught students from various universities including Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, and Harvard. I have also led undergraduate classes at UCL in logic and philosophy, and am a senior mentor for the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust.
