Personal Description:

I am a third year PhD Candidate in the History Department at Durham University; I have passionately studied history and literature since my A levels and I am working towards working within the academic field as a researcher and lecturer.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught a number of outreach classes at Durham University designed to allow newcomers of any age to come and engage with a variety of subjects, my specialties are History, English Literature, Creative Writing and Philosophy. I have some experience tutoring younger children but my strengths lie in GCSE and beyond.

Tutoring Approach:

In my personal experience, success in learning comes from the setting of clear goals. What the pupil wishes to achieve at the end of their time with me will dictate lesson plan and structure accordingly - for instance, we can focus on pure theory and knowledge for those who simply wish to broaden their general understanding of a particular field. Alternatively, more emphasis can be placed upon preparation for exams including learning appropriate essay structure and tailoring answers to exam board requirements. In either case, each session will be broken down into a clear agenda at the start, tutoring to that agenda and then recapping at the end to see whether the information has been appropriately processed.
I believe in education being engaging and enlightening for all, it simply requires the correct spark to be lit. I am patient and passionate about what I teach. I have a firm belief that every pupil is an individual with specific requirements and therefore like to take the time to learn their passions and to use that to encourage learning.
