I am a 22 year old History graduate, having achieved a 2:1 from the University of Southampton. I studied history at Hills Road Sixth Form College in Cambridge and prior to this I achieved 100% in GCSE History. I did my dissertation, and recieved high marks, on Britains Home Front during the Second World War, which was a highly interesting yet challenging topic to choose. I am interested in various topics of history, ranging from Victorian England to Apartheid in South Africa. I have a particular interest in World War Two, and German history 1918-1945. This will assist students who are studying Weimar and Nazi Germany for their history GCSE’s. I studied Medicine Through Time for my GCSE history, and am confident in my ability to make the topic more understandable and therefore encourage enthusiasm in students.
I have effectively taught a number of young adults in their lead up to their GCSE history exams, in which all students gained an A*-C grade. I have taught students of all abilities and understand that studying for exams can often be stressful and difficult, therefore I have a gentle approach to teaching, to ensure that students understand the information being presented without feeling overwhelmed.
I am passionate about history and want my students to be too. To ensure that my students achieve the best grades, I put in a lot of extra work outside lesson times. I create lesson plans to suit a student’s needs, and offer a wide variety of resources to enable them to learn in a way that suits them. Remembering dates is a key part of what makes a History student successful in exams, and I can offer guidance on ways to do this effectively. Structure is also something that many students struggle with, but is important in writing essays- I can provide structures for different History exam questions to give students extra confidence. I am familiar with many GCSE and secondary History topics and can offer a fun, yet effective way of teaching all levels of ability.
