Information About Nick - Cardiff tutor - (44 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Nick:
I have worked as a classroom teacher for ten years and written three textbooks on British and Chinese modern history. I am an expert in 19th and 20th Century and have a history podcast that reaches over 10,000 listeners each week.
I am passionate not only about history but about helping learners excel. I am an expert in understanding what obstacles a student has to overcome and I have helped hundreds of students find their true potential.
I have taught for ten years and lectured in history at the University of Wales Institute Cardiff. I am currently the creator of an ebook series Explaining History and am writing two new history textbooks for Hodder publishing. I was head of history at Kings Monkton School in Cardiff between 2007 and 2013 and now work as an online history teacher for Interhigh.co.uk
I have planned and prepared the WJEC history syllabus for the school and am familiar with teaching to most other syllabuses. I have written textbooks for AQA and Edexcel.
Each client I tutor has different needs and different strengths so I like to get to know the student initially so I can find the best way to help them. I normally conduct either a one hour or ninety minute session that focuses on a particular issue (eg The 1923 Munich Putsch and its failure) and create a structured study programme for the student.
I set and mark weekly homework assignments and am happy to email additional resources on a weekly basis. I am also a qualified counsellor and can help with issues such as exam stress, anxiety and confidence.
I also supply learners with a full complement of notes on all subjects (and create new resources where necessary).

Thank you for all your help and guidance supporting Amy through her History A level course helping her to gain in confidence , knowledge and securing her grade final grade A result. Thank you !
I am an academic. I contacted Nick through First Tutors. Nick is an excellent history tutor. He taught my daughter, who was able to get to school for health reasons. She achieved an A* in Al level history I would recommend him with reservation.
Would highly recommend.
Nick has been an excellent Tutor for the last 9 months. He has a thorough understanding of the subject and has inspired Stephanie with his knowledge and enthusiasm. She looked forward to and enjoyed her lessons very much. Thank you Nick.
Tuition sessions were a genuine pleasure, and the 'Historical Enquiry' I constructed with his help was in a completely different league to all the history essays I had previously written.
Although I was initially dubious about engaging a tutor in Cardiff (as opposed to my native Bristol) due to the extra travel time, I definitely don't regret it!
