Hi, I'm Rebekah. I am an experienced professional tutor and teacher. I am a graduate of the University of Nottingham (BA (Hons) and PGCE). I am married and have two sons of my own. Outside of work, my passions are singing, watching films and visiting National Trust sites. I am an organised, friendly and caring person.
I taught History for 6 years at Key Stages 3,4 and 5 in a large, high-achieving secondary school. I also have 4 years experience of teaching primary. I worked as an English Lecturer at an FE college, teaching GCSE and Functional Skills English. I have also been providing tuition in various subjects for 7 years, including preparation for the Lincolnshire 11+ tests. I have been an History examiner and Moderator for OCR, CiE and AQA exam boards for many years, marking GCSE, iGCSE, International O-levels (Singapore), AS level and A-level qualifications. My specialisms include Medieval History, Tudor and Stuarts and British 19th Century Political History. However, I am able to teach all aspects of history. I also produce resources for the Times Educational Supplement which have been downloaded thousands of times, by teachers all over the world.
I like to support students with their existing school work. I believe in working on basic skills and on building self-esteem. For older students, I like to work specifically on examination techniques and preparation. I hope to foster a love of learning and of the subjects I tutor in. Whilst I have previously tutored locally, in people's homes, I am hoping to develop online tutoring both nationally and internationally. I use Skype, Google Docs and Prezi to aid my work, but am willing to use other conferencing platforms (FaceTime, Zoom etc), as required.
