Personal Description:

I have recently graduated from the University of Southampton with an Upper Second Class (Honours) degree in History, and I am currently offering one to one tutoring on evenings and weekends.

I am passionate about helping students to achieve their full potential, and after having attained the top grades through mainstream education in recent years, I have the understanding of the current education system and National Curriculum to help them do so.

In my spare time I am a keen sportsman and I am passionate about film, history and travel.

Tutoring Experience:

In my time at Sixth Form, I tutored pupils at my secondary school who were undertaking their GCSEs in the humanities subjects English, History and French. These sessions proved very useful for the students due to me having a clear understanding of what was necessary to achieve the top grades.

While studying at university I worked as a Fresher’s Mentor, assisting first year History students with any issues they had adapting to the requirements of their degree and their assignments. All of the above involved consolidating the tutee’s understanding of course content followed by revision techniques and exam practice.

Aside from academic tutoring, I also have experience as a Football Coach for children as young as 4 up to the ages of 15. This has allowed me to further my knowledge in teaching young people and helped me to develop an engaging style of tutoring which can be employed when working with an individual on a one-to-one basis.

I therefore have experience of tutoring a wide range of ages, with consistent results throughout.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed but engaging approach to tutoring which encourages my students to aim for the highest grades.

As I have very recently completed my education, I am in a strong position to empathise with students regarding what is required of them in the contemporary UK educational system, which is vital to the tutor/tutee relationship.

I have an exam-focused approach, which provides my students with the best chance to effectively translate their knowledge into a good exam performance. My work thus often uses the relevant syllabus and mark schemes as a point of reference throughout. For example, prior to the first session, I analyse the student’s syllabus which allows me to understand the content and coursework/exams requirements, from which I devise the most effective sessions.

Key to my approach is a clear exam preparation strategy involving essay-writing techniques, revision methods and exam practice.

However my approach is very flexible in order to suit the needs of the individual, and my work is adapted to each student’s favoured learning style. This is pivotal as having the sessions tailored to each student makes for rapid improvement, which is not possible within a school environment.

Similarly, I am always willing to adapt the nature and content of my sessions in response to feedback from my students.
