I am a historian and teacher offering private tuition in History and Politics from GCSE to degree level.
In 2017 I completed a PhD in American political history. I have significant experience tutoring History and Politics at GCSE and A-Level. I also work as an examiner for the AQA and OCR exam boards with the standard, clarity and consistency of my marking rated "exemplary."
I have worked as a private tutor for a number of years, helping a diverse range of students fulfil their potential and achieve their academic goals. All of my A-Level students have gone on to secure a place at university. I enjoy working at both an individual and group level.
I am also employed as a part time university lecturer in American history, giving lectures and leading seminars, and work in local secondary schools teaching history.
As an examiner for AQA and OCR I have excellent knowledge of specifications and mark schemes. I am able to help students improve their essay-writing and exam technique through a range of strategies including effective planning, time management, structure, and using evidence to support balanced arguments and judgements.
I am friendly, reliable, and committed to helping pupils maximise their academic potential through building their knowledge and confidence. I have an extensive knowledge of world history and enjoy creating exciting teaching materials and using a range of strategies to encourage learning.
Through structured tutorials, I identify the learning needs of students and define appropriate learning objectives. I also assess progress and give appropriate feedback so students can pinpoint key strengths and areas for improvement.
