I am an experienced tutor living and studying in Edinburgh studying for a MA in Politics and International Relations. I have tutored multiple pupils before and in all situations the pupil has performed exceedingly better than their prelim grade. I went through the Scottish education system myself and I achieved strong A passes in all of the subjects that I offer tutoring in. The exams I took were all from the new system of National 5s, new Highers and new Advanced Highers so I have a full understanding and experience of the system including the assignment and various assessments. Alongside working as a tutor, I am the Editor-in-Chief of one of the student papers based at the University of Edinburgh so I offer excellent proof reading and editing of essay plans, essays and assignments.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Using past papers and exemplars, I work with students to create essay plans for any possible question that could come up in the exam. Through this, I encourage students to develop their research skills in order to find relevant examples and develop their skills so to be able to utilise in all papers in the exams and beyond. Using various exercises, I help students practice the skills that they need to use in the exam in order to improve their grades and overall performance in the exam.

What qualifications do you have?

Currently studying for an MA in politics and international relations. Advanced Highers in Geography (A), French (A). Highers in English (A), Maths (A), Modern Studies (A), Geography (A), Politics (A), French (A).
