Home Tuition for History in Aberdeen

I'm 35, love History and enjoy teaching. I want more History and more teaching in my life. I am happy to travel or upon request and discussion could do the tuition at mine. I am flexible with the rates and will charge between £20 - £30 an hour depending on travelling distance. This is negotiable.

Tutoring Experience

I have been teaching for several years. I taught secondary for 2 years in England with the English curriculum and have been teaching secondary in Scotland for 7 years right the way through from S1 to Advanced Higher. I am keen on developing exam technique and have marked consistently for both the English exam board and the SQA for the past 4 years, this has given me great insight into the marking process and I am keen to pass on this knowledge to the right person. I think it can be quite unfair on pupils who know everything about a topic but don't get decent marks because they don't write what they know down in the 'correct' manner.

Tutoring Approach

It's important to ascertain at what level the tutee is at first, where they realistically plan to be at the end of a period of time and find out from them how they learn best. I can provide materials upon request with notice and will make an effort to liaise with the tutee's teacher to find out more about how they are taught, rather than complicate the matter with 'new techniques' it is far more sensible to reinforce what the main teacher has been going over in class. Of course, I am flexible enough to offer completely new and different techniques if that is what the tutee wants.
