Information About Nicholas - Reading tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Nicholas:
Im Nick, I have recently graduated from Royal Holloway University with a Masters degree in Ancient History. I currently work full time as manager of a local business. However, I still retain a great interest in my discipline and would love an excuse to indulge my academic interests and pass on the knowledge I have.
For the last two years I have tutored several students on History, Politics and English. I have experience with AQA and Edexcel exam boards gaining many tips and techniques to collect the easy marks, as well as tapping into the hard ones. I am very pleased with the progression all my students have made, normally jumping at least one if not two grade boundaries and are now all looking seriously at universities to continue the subject. We have also been able to establish a strong academic understanding of the subject matter, rather than simply passing the exam. Hopefully this will serve them in good stead for future education, career development and most importantly their personal interest in the subjects.
I feel tutoring should provide a firm academic structure when creating essays, while also adding a context to the tutee's existing knowledge. History is a subject that requires extensive reading, and many texts can feel impenetrable without guidance. It is also very easy to loose marks if essays or assessments do not follow an academic structure regardless of the individuals knowledge of the subject. Therefore by concentrating on these factors I would aim to provide a faster and more comprehensive understanding of the reading material, while maximizing the student's grades during any assessments.
