Oldham Tutor

I am a mum of three with a passion for debate; hence my love of History. I also have a great love of cats, tattoos and baked goods. I am driven by a desire for social equality.

Tutoring Experience

I am a qualified teacher and have been teaching History A level since 2011. I was course leader at a large FE college in Manchester until very recently and during my time there I designed a very exciting curriculum. I have also been a personal tutor for over a year, helping students with functional skills and UCAS applications. During my time in practice, I have had a 100% pass rate at A2, with all my students going on to the university of their choice. My most recent class obtained A*-C. Each year I have worked alongside Oxford University, entering my students into an essay writing competition; in 2013, my students were awarded first and third prizes. I specialise in Medieval History but have taught a wide range of topics. As well as my private tuition work, I also now work at a large FE College in Tameside, delivering A Level and Access courses.

Tutoring Approach

I believe that every learner can achieve the grades they want, with hard work and a good relationship with their teacher. I may not know everything but I will do my best to guide my students through their course; with passion and enthusiasm. My methods may not always be conventional but I will endeavour to help my students, in any way I can, to help them realise their potential and achieve their goals.
