Oxford and Cambridge University Application Support

As an Oxford graduate I know how tough the application process to the UK's top universities can be. You've got the grades, you've got the passion, but how do you make sure your application stands out?

I can work with you through every stage of the process to ensure your personal statement does justice to your individual potential. This includes the initial task of crafting your ideas into a first draft, suggesting ways you can extend your knowledge though extra reading, refining your written expression, and final proof reading and editing.

Once you reach the interview stage, I can prepare you through practice interviews that stretch your thinking in different directions and mean that you're on top form for the big day.

My 4 years experience as a teacher in a UK high school means that I have already mentored students and helped them get to the next stage of their education.

About Me

As a fully qualified secondary school teacher with a BA in History from Oxford University and an MSc in Social and Cultural Anthropology, teaching and learning is at the heart of everything I do. From working in a multicultural London school, teaching on a remote island in the South Pacific, to living and researching gender and mobile phones in Bangladesh, my experiences have given me a wide range of perspectives that are essential to designing effective and inclusive learning.

My commitment to teaching and learning means that I am part of a wider community of innovative educators. In 2017 I contributed to the latest professional scholarship through the publication of an article in the Historical Association’s journal Teaching History (Issue 167). The theme of the issue was ‘complicating narratives’ and my article aimed to raise questions about standard textbook narratives concerning change in the Industrial Revolution.
I am currently developing my Master research further and working on a PhD proposal. In my spare time I love to run, read, and play football.

Education

University of Oxford, History, Bachelors, 2:1, graduated in 2011
Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, Social and Cultural Anthropology, Masters, Grade: 8.6, graduated in 2020

Experience / Qualifications

University of Bristol, Postgraduate Certificate in Education, Distinction
4 years full-time teacher at Whitmore High School, Harrow
I draw upon the experience and resources of 4 years classroom teaching in the UK. I have a detailed professional understanding of the content and skills needed to excel in GCSE and A level History. In particular I have access to a wealth of resources for the Edexcel GCSE History Course (including, but not limited to, modules on: Medicine Through Time, Superpower Relations and the Cold War, Early Elizabethan England, and Weimar and Nazi Germany). I also have expertise in teaching the Edexcel A level course, in particular the USA in the 20th century. However, the essay writing skills and revision techniques I have developed are adaptable to all periods of History. I also have experience teaching a range of academic abilities, so I can adapt the level of the class to ensure you find it challenging and see an improvement in your grades.
I can offer engaging and educational speaking classes with content tailored to your interests. I have a Bachelors degree from Oxford University and I'm a qualified high school History teacher with 4 years of experience in a classroom. I can therefore plan structured and engaging lessons to ensure you make progress. Whether you want to expand your vocabulary, practice your pronunciation, or build up your confidence when speaking at any level, I can help!

Dr. Pradeepika
professional teacher as private tutor: Maths/ English / Science
My name is Dr. Pradeepika, Gold medalist and with 6+ years of experience as an assistant professor, faculty development training and school teaching/helping experience to students of various age groups. These years of experience in school support have allowed me to develop a methodology adapted to the needs and profile of the student. I offer Math, Science(Physics, Chemistry, Biology), Social Science, English classes for children and adolescents (primary and secondary) who are struggling to find a way of working that suits them. Extrovert, bubbly, and above all, a lot of humor! I believe that everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate their level, strengths, possible weaknesses, or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore the student's confidence: things are within everyone's reach when they are well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him/her so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). I believe students learn best when they are in a positive and happy environment. By using the methods, I can develop a classroom that is supportive with fun. I believe it is important for students to feel happy and comfortable with me so that they can develop the confidence to speak up and put forward their ideas. I believe every student needs to be challenged regardless of their ability. I believe that the more confidence students have, the better their chance is of succeeding.😇 Looking forward to reading from you!.

Sonja
English tutor in Amsterdam, various subjects, kids & adults
Hi everyone! I'm a Native English speaker that offers private tutoring for various means (homework help, studying for exams, etc...). You can send me a message if you are interested, and we can discuss the possibilities. I currently hold a Bachelor's degree in Minorities & Multilingualism, with a minor in (English) linguistics. I live very close to Amsterdam, and I'm open to tutoring both children and adults. I also have some experience as an after-school (assistant) ESL teacher for Middle school kids back in 2013-2014. I really loved that job, so I am thinking to work as an ESL teacher in the near future as well :) I've continuously been told that I am great at explaining complex things in a simple way, by both my international friends when it comes to understanding (English) assignments, as well as my language conversation partners. I also help my mom with editing and proofreading her poems (she's a writer). Moreover, I'm currently also self-studying Japanese, so I understand the frustrations and challenges that come with learning to master a (new) language!

Lotte
English tutor - Grammar, speaking, reading and listening
I will introduce myself. My name is Lotte, I am 23 years old and I study Medicine at the VU in Amsterdam. In high school I attended bilingual education and lived for six months in Australia for my education. In addition, I also followed a minor Academic English at the VU. I have also been with my boyfriend, who is from London, for 2 years now. So, enough practice with the English language! During this course I will help you to learn to speak, write, read and listen better English. We mainly do this through assignments that can be made online on a laptop. I will adapt my lesson to the wishes of the child / young person and his / her parents, or the adult I am going to supervise. It is therefore nice for me to have a good idea of this in advance so that I can tailor the lessons to my students and that I can learn as much as possible at the right level.

But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid.

Zahra
doctoral student helps you with your homework (mathematics, science, French, English ...) primary and college level
Methodology I discuss with parents in order to find out about their child's academic problems so that I can better orient my lessons. I then ask the child to tell me his difficulties in order to see if the parents and the child have the same perception. When the balance sheet is established I question the student in order to know what he is studying in class so that I can follow the program while trying to review specific points not assimilated. I use his lessons and his textbooks but if I need them I use the material I have. For the next class I can bring back exercises that I have at home or that I find on the internet.

Benoit
Private Maths Lessons - Limoges or Online - Qualified and Experienced Mathematics Teacher
I am a qualified and experienced private math teacher. Graduated from the Free University of Brussels in 2011, I started my career giving remedial courses in different schools in Brussels. I then specialized in individual tutoring by following a pedagogical training from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I have been giving private math lessons daily for almost 10 years. Pleasantly surprised by the impact of my lessons on the school career of my students, in 2018 I created Math Coaching, an online tutoring platform. The platform provides students around the world with quality educational content focused on making math learning easier. The students who follow my private lessons benefit from personalized support. The first session is devoted to an in-depth assessment of the student's mathematical knowledge. The objective is to detect its weak points and understand their origin in order to adapt my courses to its needs. I develop a tailor-made remediation program for each of my students aimed at filling each of their gaps. Over the course of the sessions, the student builds a solid foundation for learning and regains self-confidence. At the same time, I help him acquire a work methodology that allows him to gradually become autonomous in his studies. I have a perfect knowledge of the mathematics program of the College and the High School (from the Sixth to the Terminale). During my formative years, I studied and developed many techniques that make it easier to learn math. The strength of my pedagogical approach lies in my ability to explain in a simple way everything that the student finds complicated. I am passionate about this job because it gives me the opportunity to guide dropout students on the path to success. It is a real pleasure to see them evolve and come to terms with the fantastic world of mathematics. I give my private lessons in Limoges (at the student's home) or remotely (by internet). My distance learning courses take place on an interactive online whiteboard. This table is specially designed to promote student / teacher interaction on the internet. Thanks to this educational tool, my online courses are as effective as home courses. The student only needs an internet connection and a computer, a tablet, or a smartphone to use it.

(Online) Tutoring Mathematics / Arithmetic (VMBO - Mavo - Havo - Vwo - MBO - HBO, including the WisCat test; Primary education)
As a qualified math teacher I give (online) tutoring in Mathematics and / or Arithmetic: - Secondary Education: Vmbo - Mavo - Havo - Vwo; - Vocational education: MBO - HBO (including the WisCat test); - Primary education (extra support in math). Step by step we go through the subject matter together, so that you get the hang of it well. You learn mathematics (and also arithmetic) by doing! It gives me great satisfaction when the student gets good grades. Also (online) tutoring possible during the school holidays.
