Jonathan

Falkirk Tutor

My name is Jonathan and I am currently in my 3rd year for my BA: History and Politics joint degree. I am a dedicated learner when it comes to history, politics and philosophy and I hope I'd be able to pass on a similar level of enthusiasm to any student I am currently tutoring. I am very knowledgeable when it comes to British, American and European politics and for history, my main strengths and interests lie in: Ancient history (Greek and Roman), American history and World War I and II. The latter of these is normally what is taught in schools and colleges for higher history.

Tutoring Experience

For many years I have assisted people I know come to grips with the sheer amount of information required to succeed. I have taught higher history and politics students, and they have cultivated a genuine interest in the subjects I teach. I have done numerous oral presentations in classroom environments which has certainly played a large part in my effectiveness when it comes to teaching and my general confidence.

Tutoring Approach

First I would prefer to make sure the parent and student is comfortable with my teaching style so the first lesson would be completely free. Without a doubt, the best approach is to focus on a few key areas at a time as learners can easily get overwhelmed. I would always come prepared with materials for the appropriate subject anyway, but I feel the best way to learn the topics is if the student or parent lets me know which area in particular they wish to focus on for the lesson.
I have extensive knowledge of the new Scottish curriculum as I was at college during the time the highers programme changed.
When it comes to exams, I recognise how daunting a time it can be for any learner. However, I will make sure the student is well prepared for any upcoming tests/exams or essays, which will supply them with the confidence to succeed.
