I am an experienced teacher who has a passion for History. I have always loved finding out about the past and I thoroughly enjoy passing on this enthusiasm to my students. I believe that creating interest in a subject provides the perfect environment for a positive learning experience.
I have been a qualified teacher for 13 years. I teach National 4/5 and Higher History and have taught various topics. I have been a marker for the SQA for the last 10 years. I marked Standard Grade, Intermediate and Higher History. I now mark the assignment and examination paper of the National 5 exam. I have successfully tutored several students over the last few years at National 5 and Higher level. Last year my tutees were very successful at National 5 and Higher level. I also have positive references, on this site, from extremely satisfied parents.
I always ask my students how their teacher explains questions and how they are expected to present their answers. Therefore, this avoids confusion for my students. I provide strategies on tackling questions and techniques on how to answer them. By using this method my students cope extremely well with the skills now required at National 5 and for essay writing. I have had a great deal of success in providing help to pupils when writing their Assignment. I create an open and positive relationship with my students and this allows them to feel comfortable to communicate their concerns with me.
