Personal Description:

Deciding to engage a professional tutor can be a daunting thought and it seems easier to put it off. It’s all too easy to carry struggling on, trying to mask the need for guidance whilst looking around the classroom at your peers who seem to have it all together (they don’t, by the way!) My advice, whether you use me or choose another tutor, is do not delay. The more time you give yourself to practice before exams, the better.

I am a committed and reliable History tutor who works full time as professional tutor. I have a proven track record teaching GCSE and ALevel across all exam boards. I have been tutoring privately for 6 years and possess a Masters in Education from the University of Southampton as well as my PGCE teaching qualification and my BA (Hons) from the 5 star rated Economic and Social History Department at the University of Leicester.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught KS3, GCSE and A-Level for 5 years in a secondary school in Hampshire. I tutored a student who had attained 'D' grades on two successive attempts achieve her potential and acquire a high A grade - 75/77. Two of my A2 students achieved 100% on my exam paper (AQA Germany **Telephone Number Removed** Alternative E course). Furthermore, I have taught both Edexcel and SHP at GCSE level; topics including Superpower Relations, Divided Union, Vietnam, the 1960s, Jack the Ripper, Crime and Punishment Through Time, The American West, and German Unification.

A-Level topics covered during tuition include Russia and Stalin, Civil Rights Movement, The American West Expansion, Native Americans, Post War Britain, the Tudors and The French Revolution, Propaganda in the World Wars, as well as Anglo-Saxon England and the Norman Conquest.

Tutoring Approach:

I make the subject accessible for students and as a previous student said I "bring out the best in a pupil". My particular strengths include essay writing skills, source analysis, time management in exams, revision techniques and exam preparation. All my tutees have improved significantly on their predicted grades.

My online approach is centred on the individual issues each student wishes to focus on. From extensive experience this is mainly how to write a high grade essay or source analysis. Please view my video for a detailed explanation of how I tutor online. May I also make you aware that I no longer offer Skype as a regular teaching method. My business is now moving towards written reports and critique of students' work with Skype as an occasional additional support, not a specific lesson.

For local students who are home schooled, I am able to travel to you to support your learning. This is only available during the day and out of normal school holidays. Other tuition from school based learners is evenings and weekends. As I full time tutor I am able to be more flexible with online tuition as a lot of this can be achieved during the day.

PLEASE NOTE: For face to face tuition - when I take on a student you are booking the time slot as your dedicated space. No other student will be able to use this slot. Consequently, none attendance of lessons, for any reason, will be charged at 50%.
