Personal Statements and Oxbridge Admissions (interview prep)

I'm an Oxford graduate who has been helping university applicants with personal statements over the past few years, a number of whom have secured places at Oxbridge.

Before applying to university myself I spent a lot of time with a number of different people who helped guide me with my personal statement and the rest of the admissions process. I now aim to pass on to others the insight I gained from these experiences.

In a personal statement session, I will set out the structure of a great personal statement and work with the student to identify the content which will allow their application to stand out amongst those of other applicants.

For those applying to Oxbridge, I am happy to help with course choices, college choices, expectations of the Oxbridge lifestyle, and understanding the difference between Oxford and Cambridge. I have also run a number of mock interviews for applicants based on the experiences of myself and other Oxbridge graduates to ensure that students feel more comfortable and prepared for the real thing.

Relaxed into the Job Interview! Mindset and Question/Answer preparation
You have finally made it! The company/organization liked your resume and wants to meet with you. Congrats! That's pretty awesome... but also pretty scary! - Can be! - But doesn't have to be! Despite being a somewhat shy person I have been nailing my job interviews in the past years and every conversation I have been invited to turned has into a job offer - leaving me with several options to chose from, every time! More so, people I have trained had similar results. Everyone will have a Job Interview at least once in their life. And preparation here for can be pretty nerve wrecking, especially if you have never been in one or it has been a while since you had your last interview. I will help you to go into the conversation relaxed and leave a lasting impression. Hope to meet you
