Current History teacher (KS3 - KS5) and previous Head of History. I am a young and enthusiastic teacher with a terrific subject knowledge. I am extremely passionate about History and I believe that I have an innate ability to put across complex information in a way that is clear. I am not the kind of teacher that simply teaches from a textbook or writes notes on the board; I try to come up with innovative and memorable methods of teaching that will ensure that students fully understand course content.
However, I always ensure that my lessons are exam-focused; this could be through incorporating keywords at KS3, or planning exam answers at A Level. I have been tutoring for two years outside of my profession and my tutees have achieved excellent results, with some continuing on to study History at university. I have also been an A Level and GCSE examiner; this has provided me with an insight into the assessment process that I can share with tutees.
I am currently working as a History teacher at an independent school in Hertfordshire, having previously had Head of Department experience elsewhere. I now teach twentieth-century history at GCSE, as well as Italy and Germany at A Level. However, the topics listed below show the full range of subject knowledge that I can provide. If you do not see the topic that you are struggling with on the list below, please still contact me as I may still be able to help - I will be up front and honest if I don't think I'm right for the job!
Topics that I teach or have previously taught at GCSE include:
Restoration England, 1660-1685
Elizabethan England, 1568-1603
International Relations in the 20th Century (all world history topics from 1900-2000, e.g. Russia, Cold War, Hitler, Civil Rights etc.)
Medicine Through Time
Historical Enquiry (coursework)
Topics that I teach or have previously taught at A Level include:
Russia (any date range from 1855-1964)
Later Tudors (1547-1603)
The Early Modern Witchcraze
Historical Enquiry (coursework)
I take a unique and memorable approach to tutoring. Ahead of the sessions I will identify a clear line of progression over the weeks and months leading up to an exam. I will aim to target key weaknesses in a student's knowledge and work, which will provide the focus of tutoring sessions. As a gold level author on TES (**Web Address Removed**) I have already built up a wide range of excellent written and digital resources that I will incorporate into my tutoring. Also, as part of my tutoring sessions I will seek to clarify the knowledge that has been passed on in a tutee's class time, whilst revising key dates, events and themes. Fun is at the centre of my approach to tutoring and the ultimate goal is to have students learning key information with a smile on their face.
