This is how 2 referees rated Adam:
I am an experienced and qualified History Teacher. I moved to Sheffield from Cambridge in 2017.
I received a Secondary History PGCE from Cambridge University, and have subsequently taught in a leading History Department in Cambridge, and in a Sixth Form College in Sheffield. I have experience teaching GCSE B (SHP) History and AQA History A level. I currently teach the following topics at A level, and so will be able to provide specific detailed support with content for - The Tudors: England, 1485-1603; Democracy and Nazism: Germany, 1918-1945; Revolution and Dictatorship: Russia 1917-1953; and Industrialisation and the people: Britain, c1783-1885. I would be able to support tutees studying other options as well.
I will focus with tutees on essay writing, and give them direct instruction in how to structure essays, construct arguments and substantiate those arguments throughout their essays to ensure that they get the most credit possible for their subject knowledge. I can also work on approaches to sources and historians' extracts questions by a combination of seminar-style discussion about individual sources and extracts as well as direct instruction in how to structure responses to them.
For History, the most profitable area for improvement is often essay style. I aim, by working through practice questions, to get my tutees to be confident about knowing what to do when presented with an exam question. By working through questions relevant to their course, tutees will not only learn exactly what they need to do to go about constructing an excellent essay, but will also have a better idea of what they think about the content of their course, allowing them to think quickly and clearly in their exams. Help with revision techniques can also be useful.
