Modern History student at The University of Manchester, offering sessions up to A-Level.

Methodology

When I first meet a learner, I will introduce myself and my interests in the subject, then begin to understand how I can optimally help the student with their individual needs. One of the key ways in which students compete well within the exam system is through confidence, and so instilling the fact that with the correct preparation students can achieve their goals, even if they have previously been struggling in the classroom. An early part of my learning process is assessing whether the pupil is struggling with small parts of the content, exam technique, or a wider combination of both. I then take a thematic approach, breaking town often complex processes and topics in to achievable chunks and depending on the timeframes available, prioritise the strengths of the individual to best meet their needs. Each of my sessions will be split in to learning, revision or exam preparation depending on which is required, this enables me to avoid areas in which students are all ready strong, and instead focus on segments which require the most improvement. I always dedicate what I personally found to be the most powerful learning technique, that of me allowing the student to elaborate and discuss the ideas, in a which leads students to express the ideas in question, aiding retention and boosting attainment.

Background

My enthusiasm for my subjects is driven by my cross-disciplinary studies between Economics, History and the social sciences, first critically examining them in depth, then examining how these areas shape the world around us. In my experience economics shapes the society we live in, and a rounded and deep understanding of this is indispensable, giving students the tools they need not only to excel in their academic endeavours but also in their future careers. Closely interlinked with this is history, my first experience in the satisfaction which academic pursuits can offer, after gaining a better understanding of the little known ‘Opium Wars’ of the 19th Century, on which my EPQ project was based. Unlike many other tutors, I have not only excelled in academic studies, but also in my extra-curricular activities, utilising my economics knowledge by competing the ICAEW national BASE challenge final, achieving ‘highly commended’. Additionally, I nurtured the creative flair of younger students by establishing my Sixth Form’s debating Union, still going strong today. By taking a thematic approach to how I teach my pupils, I cover in depth the concepts and mechanisms at the heart of the subject, giving students not only the breadth of knowledge required to properly prepare them for exams, but also the topic specific case studies and evidence that unlocks higher marks.

Work Experience

Outreach Ambassador
University of Manchester - Manchester
October 2018 to Present
After independently contacting my old sixth form, I organised an hour-long presentation for students about what it is like to study at Manchester University. This involved engaging with children and giving balanced advice, along with ways to improve potential applications, and advice on academic learning. It involved organizing an engaging presentation and Q&A, along with an integrated interactive section to help students better visualise complex concepts, including financial matters.

Internship
Barclays - Sheffield
October 2016 to December 2016
After organising this work experience, I explored various roles in the central Sheffield branch, including back office organisation, front of house, customer support and mortgage application, over a period of two months. During my time there, I frequently took up a front of house role, while engaging with customers in finding, and tailoring solutions to their problems. In doing so I promoted a professional relationship with customers, maintaining high quality.
Education

Bachelor's in Modern History with Economics
University of Manchester - Manchester
September 2017 to September 2020



Awards

ICAEW BASE challenge 2017 'Highly Commended'
June 2017
Competing with hundreds of Sixth Form colleges, I led a team to the national final. The challenge involved being given a scenario business, then being required to make a measured business decision, taking in to account Micro and Macro-economic rationale with a constantly changing set of variables. Then a short presentation was made to industry professionals, followed by rigorous questioning as to the business reasoning behind my recommendation.
