Sheila's feedback about Antonia (A-Level History tuition near Bournemouth)
From Sarah’s parents: Antonia tutored our daughter in History during her A2 year and we cannot recommend her highly enough. She is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher, and very intuitive in her approach. Our daughter had lost much enthusiasm and confidence during her AS year, largely as she did not fully understand what was expected of her. On starting with Antonia at First Tutors her confidence quickly began to return. Antonia established where our daughter was, then devised well organised sessions to guide her through the remaining A2 topics, backed up by homework and practice essays. Antonia was clear and open in her expectations of her tutees, which our daughter greatly appreciated. She particularly valued being able to discuss and debate topics in detail, in a way that is not often possible in school. The tutoring sessions helped our daughter gain necessary skills in the use of data and sources, a greater confidence in her ability to attack different (& difficult) questions and a more rounded approach to history generally. She was extremely happy to receive an A in her recent A Level results and her enthusiasm has remained. Many, many thanks from us all! From Sarah: One key way in which Antonia helped me develop my writing was via detailed deconstruction and personal feedback on essays and exam questions. This was especially helpful because of frustration regarding the marking of my schoolwork, which was often generalised and did not provide specific pointers on how to improve my work. Antonia’s emphasis on essay organisation, through creating brief but organised and comprehensive plans before writing, helped me develop my style and communicate more effectively. I also valued my discussions with Antonia on managing my use and evaluation of sources alongside the development of my key argument in my coursework essay. Writing a longer piece of work seemed daunting, but Antonia’s encouragement to break it down into sections and focus on the essential argument, rather than devolving into narrative writing, was certainly useful. All in all, a positive experience. Many thanks Antonia!
