Personal Description:

Hi! I'm James, a 21-year-old History graduate of the University of Cambridge. Having tutored for a number of years in English Literature and Language, History, Politics and Philosophy - as well as graded Classical Guitar - I am well versed in private tuition. A proficient writer, I have a particuarly keen interst in the history of philosophy and European politics, but also have a wealth of degree-level expertise in other areas of historical study, such as the colonisation of North America and the Vietnam War.

I have particularly specialist knowledge in the field of 18th Century British Political, Economic and Social history and the History of Political Thought (from the pre-Enlightenment to the 20th Century).

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored on a private basis for a number of years, starting off six years ago with classical guitar. I then moved on to helping a number of students with their A Levels, as well as GCSE English Literature and Language. I regularly use **Contact Detail Removed** for my lessons, and feel this is just as good a medium as face-to-face lessons when the internet is utilised to its full effect.

I have also worked for two years at an international summer school (Kingdom Education) based in a number of universities across the country, through which I have taught lessons in current affairs and politics. This has introduced me to students from all over the world with varying levels of English proficiency. Currently, I am contracted to an English language academy in Spain, where I teach English as a foreign language to a range of students from the ages of 5 to 50!

Tutoring Approach:

As a young and modern tutor, I provide friendly and accessible tuition to anyone with a desire to learn. As I will be based abroad this coming school year, I only offer online tuition via Skype, but regularly make use of Google Docs to provide real-time corrections and demonstrations for my students on an editable online document. I regularly make use of other online resources, such as YouTube, as I find that films, documentary footage and music can aid the learning process. I find that this is particularly useful for those studying English, as it enables us to make sense of the language we learn in a way that is stimulating and practical. Nonetheless, given that historical, political and philsophical issues regularly crop up in popular culture, different types of media can shed light on all of these areas of study.

Despite all of this I have a commitment to flexibility, and am always willing to listen to my students' academic concerns. I have no problem with them driving the direction of our study based on their specific academic needs.
