Perfect Your Essays and Learn to Work Efficiently!

Nothing can boost your grade quite like a well-written essay. It's a brilliant exercise in critical thought, analysis, and comprehension that can help you interpret the world and its media long after graduation. In my classes, I focus on how to most efficiently express yourself, using the following technique:

- Spending the majority of the process on the OUTLINE - knowing what you're going to say is the hard part, so let's knock that out first, the rest is easy!
- Use of vocabulary - advance your speech in order to convey exactly what you want to say.
- How to think critically - I will review with you what you should be looking for when you read, for maximum enjoyment as well as analysis.

I look forward to seeing you in the Zoom Room!

Extra information

Have a notebook or Word Doc ready - you'll be writing quite a bit.

About Me

I'm a recent graduate living in England with loads of experience in tutoring, happy to help you communicate your ideas clearly. My favourite part of school was essay-writing, and I'd be thrilled to share my knowledge and passion for it with you!

A class with me works a little like this:
- An introduction to you - what's your name, your favourite class, and your favourite book? This helps me gauge what your style may be as a writer and learner, plus helps put you at ease.
- An introduction to essays - what's your experience with them? How do you currently write?
- An introduction to my technique - Exercises designed to help you practice good, efficient writing techniques.

I'll be happy to read over your material and give positive, constructive feedback. If we have a little time, I'll even gossip about books to you!

Discussion of a Book, a Short-Story, a Poem, or a Movie.
In this class, we analyse and evaluate works of narrative art together. This is how it works: Before each meeting we agree on a short-story or a poem to read (or listen to), or a movie to watch in preparation for the session. If it's a book, it has to be one which we've both read in the past. We can easily determine our mutual reads through apps like Goodreads or Library Thing. The aim of this course is to exercise your capacity for critical and evaluative thinking. By the end of this course, you should be able to produce (in speech or in writing) a coherent and methodical review of a book of fiction, poetry, or a film.

History tutoring and exam preparation for 11+, 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, A-level, IB and University Applications
I am a first class graduate of History and Politics at the University of Manchester, having received an A* at A-level in History. I have a passion for all things past tense, and that reflects in the enjoyment of past students' in my lessons. I have been tutoring History for 3 years during my time at university, and have decided to continue this now I have graduated. I have a great deal of experience helping students gain entry into some of Manchester's most competitive schools, such as Manchester Grammar, Withington High school and St Bedes. My favourite level to teach, however, is GCSE and A-level History, where I believe a tutor can go into a level of detail that is not covered in class, and allow for a greater quality of essay reflecting this deeper understanding of a period. This understanding is inevitably reflected in essays, in which I will also coach a structure of writing that is suited to both exams at the time, and help with a-level and university level further down the line.

LBS EMBA | Tutoring for Dissertation and Thesis writing for Undergrad, Masters and Doctoral level candidates in business management, interna
Any dissertation, thesis or a similar longer piece of writing comprising several thousand words requires careful planning and expert supervision. University supervisors are usually busy and meet their students only rarely. I act as the student's personal supervisor ready to help with their thesis writing whenever they need me. From the Research Proposal stage to Literature Review, Research Methodology chapter to Data collection and analysis, and Results chapter to Referencing, I guide and assist my clients/students throughout the complicated process. My teaching material always includes a blend of Harvard case studies, textbook chapters, lecture slides, audiovisual material and hands-on software practice (wherever needed). All my tutoring is highly customized to suit each client's particular needs. I also tutor Doctoral candidates studying towards a Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) qualification.

I’ve learned to decode and analyze what institutions and organizations seek in applicants. I will help you sculpt your biography and experiences into a compelling narrative that shows why you’re the perfect fit. My unique approach demystifies writing by breaking the process down into 5 steps, which can be wrapped up in an hour or develop over several sessions to suit your needs. 1. Organize: I use the Google Drive platform to help you organize documents so you can declutter your mind and make space for writing. 2. Prioritize: We’ll break down your writing task into manageable deadlines, creating a timeline that reduces stress and maximizes efficiency. 3. Decode: I’ll help you translate application questions or essay prompts into clear, actionable language. 4. Flow: This is the fun part. We’ll sit down with a cup of tea to talk and brainstorm. 5. Crystalize: This is where the prep work pays off. We translate your ideas into professional, clear language. Then we use the magic of editing to transform your writing into a masterpiece. *What I can Help With* College and Graduate School Essays Grant Applications Academic Papers ESL Writing and Conversation Skills Students who worked with me were accepted to: Brown University Dartmouth College Columbia University University of Pennsylvania London School of Economics Georgetown University Carnegie Mellon University Middlebury College Williams College Phillips Exeter Academy
