Allyson

Swansea Tutor

I am a hardworking, passionate and enthusiastic character. I am coming to the end of my masters degree in Contemporary History at the University of Birmingham. As a history student, I have excellent research and writing skills. I present my ideas and arguments in an authorative, coherent and concise manner. I am disciplined and work efficiently to all time limits. My passion for history, which carries through to my hobbies, aids my interest in wanting to help others. I am constantly looking of new ways to learn history and would like to pass on my experiences and passion for history to others.

Tutoring Experience

As a current student, I have little teaching experience. However, as a student I feel that I can provide a calm, stable and relatable teaching atmosphere for the student. I have excellent research and writing skills, which I have acquired during my time in university. I am constantly looking at new ways to learn and for ways to improve my writing style. I would like to pass on my experiences to the student. As a recent graduate, I feel my experience and my learning techniques will fit in with those of all ages below degree level and adult/ casual learners.

Tutoring Approach

I like to engage the academic and creative parts of the brain by creating interactive and fun learning techniques. I am very keen on using mind maps, flash cards and quick quizzes. I am very keen on using books in my learning process as I feel it not only provides knowledge but also helps improve my writing. Setting reading deadlines will allow a debate between the student and myself, which will allow the student to create their own opinion over such issues and to learn how to deal with the different approaches and to even find gaps in the material. I have learnt this method from my lecturers at University and have found it extremely helpful. I would want to pass these techniques on to my students.
