Personal Description:

I have a masters degree in history, my areas of specialism are modern European history and the English Civil War. I regularly teach 20th Century USA history, the Russian Revolution, the Cold War, The causes of WWI, the rise of the Nazi Party and the suffragist movement.

I am very flexible and can see students most evenings, and can visit anywhere within a 40 mile radius of Cardiff. I also tutor online via skype and have lots of audio and visual resources to offer that will appeal to a wide range of learning styles.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught for seven 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.

I have planned and prepared the WJEC history syllabus for the school and am familiar with teaching to most other syllabuses.

Tutoring Approach:

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 training as an NLP coach and can help with issues such as exam stress, anxiety and confidence.
I have a weekly history podcast for students and can keep all students up to date with notes, audio and video materials using an online virtual learning system.
