Experience

From 2014 to 2019 I worked part time through agencies incluing Tutor 360 and Blue Tutors. These were weekly sessions with students who required additional help with homework and the curriculum.

In 2019 I moved to work with the agencies Hypster and Academia, online schools for international students. During the pandemic I started acting as 'school replacement', as the students only Politics teacher, and was gratified to see all of my students attain A or A* level.

I specialise in Politics A-Level, across a range of exam boards, and undergraduate essay support. Additionally I offer my students regular progress reports, and help with university applications, particularly personal statements.

On top of this I have helped multiple undergraduates during their degree, including one student who worked with me as her academic mentor throughout her entire degree at Kings (for which she recieved a first) and through her masters at SOAS.
