This is how 3 referees rated David:
I graduated from the University of Kent with a BA in History (First Class) and an MA in Modern History (Distinction) in 2011. With a passion for teaching and research, I undertook a PhD in History between 2011 to 2014, gaining my doctorate in May 2015. During this period, I have published in world-leading academic journals and have won funding and prizes for my research. While I specialise in British imperial and global history, I am also a generalist and have interests across the field of early modern and modern history. I currently teach early modern and modern papers for both Edexcel and AQA, and have previously taught OCR as well.
Alongside teaching at the University of Kent between 2011 to 2014 as an Assistant Lecturer in History, I am now Head of History at a large Further Education institution in Sussex. Having been in this post since 2014, I am responsible for overseeing the provision of history teaching across the College to over 200 students. I also teach full-time at the College, delivering the new History A Level curriculum from Edexcel, including a wide range of papers from early modern Tudor England to Communist States in the Twentieth Century.
In 2016, my results were assessed at value-added 2, which is termed 'Outstanding', with 75% of my students achieving 'High Grades', and every single one going on to their selected University.
I am a very informal, relaxed and flexible tutor, who's happy to work around the tutee's schedule and to adapt my teaching to their specific set of circumstances - whether they are seeking to build up assessment skills, focus on content and knowledge, or to seek additional learning support. However, with all my tutees (as with my students), I privilege essay planning and writing techniques as these are the key skills to succeeding, not just on the History A Level, but to a range of subjects, especially in the Humanities.
As a tutor, I strive to create a friendly and pro-active, enjoyable learning environment, no matter how brief, in which a tutee can feel relaxed and open to new ideas and information.
