Personal Description:

I am 25 years old and live with my partner and daughter in Woolwell, Plymouth. I love to read, watch films and I enjoy writing fiction. I have a real passion for history and philosophy and actively keep myself up to date with current affairs.

Tutoring Experience:

I have a BA (Hons) in History with Politics at 2:1 level and I am currently a Social Sciences Teaching Assistant at Stoke Damerel Community College. I work with Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 (GCSE) and Key Stage 5 (A-Level). I also sometimes teach as an unqualified teacher, which does include leading whole classes. My aim is to become a History Teacher of which I should start the training for in September 2017. I have been a Teaching Assistant since April 2014.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that while subject knowledge is important, exam technique is just as crucial to achieving the grades you want at GCSE and A-Level. Practice makes perfect, so looking at how to approach past exam papers will be a large part of our sessions. I also believe that an in-depth knowledge that goes beyond the subject matter covered in the exams is important so you can be confident in the subject. Extra knowledge and understanding shows in your exams and will improve your grade.

I must apologise but depending on travelling distance I may also have to charge travelling expenses for petrol. This can be discussed while arranging our first session together.
