About Me

Hello ! I am a multinational (Spanish and British) second year architecture student, currently at Cambridge University, who comes equipped with a highly interdisciplinary background and passion for learning new skills. My interests within architecture are currently enormously varied because the subject itself is so vast! , but primarily lie in museum design and curation, sustainability and bamboo construction, and theoretical discourse on phenomenology and space.

Having been panel interviewed and successful for a number of committee roles and achievements at different scales (Head Girl, university applications… as well as current internship interviews) I am well versed in interview technique and experience. I am able to provide general Oxbridge interview/ mock interviews for humanities subjects as there is a substantial overlap with what I study in my course (particularly geography, history, HSPS, archeology). I specialise in architecture, and have made multiple professional portfolios (and continuously make one every term for my degree), with an eye for detail, and so as well as mock interviews and general advice, I will happily advise in this key area.

I did five A levels, six AS levels, so have been through pretty much most academic scenarios and can provide tips for efficient revision, and efficient time management, in the similar way that worked for me.

My highly interdisciplinary architecture degree also means I am trained in professional presentation skills (persuasive presenting of work at least four times every week to a crowd), graphic skills in rendering, photography and videography, and confidence in all Adobe software. Analytical, academic essays are also a substantial part of the course and I further hone my writing skills writing university articles for the Cambridge Language Collective, Climate Journals and producing graphics for an Arts Magazine.

My teaching style

– Highly interactive methods for online classes and an emphasis on drawing value from discussion, self-awareness and student directed focus on areas of interest, within a structured framework.

– Multimedia approaches, and real-world examples to create a stimulating learning environment with an emphasis on process and methodology applied when working through towards an answer – I am personally quite systematic/ analytical with my own ‘exam responses’ approach, which translates into teaching actually relatively accessible, efficient approaches for exam/ interview answer success.

– In the university application context, I provide tips sourced from personal retrospective experience, leveraging current university contacts and technological resources for further tailored guidance.

– With regards to university applications, I am always happy to go above and beyond if there are any specifics to your personal situation I may not know and ask those I am in contact with in positions to know.

– Having done multiple mock interviews for my own application, my approach instills confidence through personalized, virtual sessions, mirrors admission scenarios and draws firsthand from areas I personally found most useful.

– Importantly, I incorporate post-session reflections and detailed feedback to facilitate continuous improvement.

My past experience

– ‘study buddy’ volunteering in school, running weekly sessions for a variety of A Level/ GCSE subjects.
– Set up and ran and Arts Sculpture club in my school open to all senior years.
– Taught and extended syllabus to primary school students in a highly interactive after school French club.
– Informal teaching experience giving (paid) summer English classes in Spain

My Proudest Achievements

– Undertaking architectural volunteering in Pakistan with Dr Yasmeen Lari (RIBA Gold winner) and helping in the development of bamboo floating houses, hazard mapping of villages unrecorded on satellite and post flood disaster relief.
– Getting into my dream university to study my dream course !
– Performing violin at the Royal Albert Hall, London
– Learning to drive rowing (eights) boats at university, and every single race.
