Personal Description:

I am a dedicated and enthusiastic private History tutor working full time in this capacity. I have a proven track record teaching KS3 through to A2 Level. I have been tutoring privately for 6 years. I 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.

I enjoy teaching and enthusing students with a passion for the subject they may have not had before. Former pupils can testify to this and such testimonials can be viewed through my reviews.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught KS3, GCSE and A-Level for 5 years in 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 in 2009 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, Post War Britain, Elizabeth I and The French Revolution. I have also expanded my online business, working with students on topics including Propaganda in the World Wars, as well as Anglo-Saxon England and the Norman Conquest.

I also have a keen interest in Medieval and Tudor History, particular the reign of Elizabeth I.

Tutoring Approach:

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

I am available to tutor on Saturdays, during the week - to fit in with free periods students may have at their school or college. I am also now available after school from 5pm until a last lesson commencement time of 8pm.

Close marking and detailed written assistance is also available by distance online learning. This can be paid for via my PayPal account once a detail report has been written on one of your essays you'd most like me to evaluate.

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.
