Tutoring Approach:

offers clear guidelines in how to prepare and study for your History and politics examinations. Key words and phrases will be identified allowing for a clear understanding of the questions set. The formatting of essays will be explained so that the correct response will be achieved together with sufficient content to score a high grade.

Source based material will be used to fine tune your analytical skills and ensure that you understand the types of questions to be expected. Additional contextual knowledge of the specific topic being studied will be highlighted to support the source material provided.

Past paper questions will be analysed to show the key aspects to become familiar with in terms of the type of question and content material being required. This will re-inforce how questions are interpreted and ensure an accurate response and therefore a high grade.

Skimming and Scanning techniques will be used plus annotation of texts to encourage reading for specific purposes and linking with past paper questions.
