Government and Politics
I recently graduated Cambridge University with a First class degree in History before teaching at Eton College, one of the top public schools in the country. I am a young, energetic and passionate tutor who has the drive and determination to help you succeed.
As a person, I am outgoing, laid back and very easy to get on with. I have always enjoyed sport and have played rugby both for Eton's First XV and for my college side at Cambridge. Being younger than your average teacher, I found that I was able to build a strong relationship with my students, being able to relate to them on a more personal level. It may sound clichéd, but I genuinely love watching students grow in confidence and become excited by history, and believe that it is a subject that endears itself to passionate study, something I would hope to cultivate in you or your child.
I tutored online throughout my time at university, and helped several a-level students with retakes, enabling them to achieve the grades they needed to go to the university of their choice, as well as tutoring current A-level and GCSE students.
After graduating, I came to Eton College where I taught A-level and GCSE history and led classes for Oxbridge applicants in both History and Politics, as well as helping with personal statements. Having recently been through the process myself, I am excellently placed at helping Oxbridge applicants perform to the best of their ability. Whether it's interview practice, help with source work or instruction on the entrance exams, I have the resources, recent experience and first-hand insight needed to help you through the process. I have also taught medieval history to A-level students taking the Pre-U. Whether you are aiming for a band 1 or a band 4, I can help you achieve your goals. Likewise GCSE students, particularly those taking the IGCSE, will find a passionate and dedicated tutor in me as I help you navigate through the complicated mark schemes and specific marking criteria. At all levels, including those currently at University, I offer essay writing classes including instruction on how to plan and structure essays effectively.
Rather than following a set structure, I take a 'tailor made' approach to tutoring. No two individual's problems or difficulties with the subject are the same and so I will build my tutoring around you. In general I am laid back and approachable and will try to get to the underlying cause of a difficulty, through discussion of specific problems. I also use my extensive knowledge of how exams are marked and how university lecturers think to fully prepare students when it comes to exams. Whether you are a history undergraduate struggling with your dissertation, an Oxbridge applicant in need of guidance, or a student unsure where to begin with the complicated and extensive mark schemes of the GCSE syllabus, I can help at every step of the way and tailor my teaching specifically for your unique needs.
