A FIRST CLASS degree holder, I have a DECADE of experience tutoring A-level History and A-level Politics/British Government.
My tutoring speciality is in modern British political and economic history with regard to 'high' British Politics. I also have a good knowledge of British culture and media since 1906. My particular research and tutoring speciality can be summed up in the following areas:
British political parties, general elections since 1900, economic affairs and the impact upon politics, 'high politics' and the role of prime minister.
Since 2009, I have gained experience with the the following A-level study areas:
'Tsarist Russia, 1855-1917' (AQA)
'Russia and Rulers, 1855-1964' (OCR)
'Britain: 1900-1914; New Liberalism' (AQA)
'The Making of Modern Britain, 1951-2007' (AQA)
'British Politics and Society, 1918-1964' (AQA)
'British Politics 1945-1990: Consensus and Conflict' (Edexcel)
Fascist Italy and Mussolini (AQA)
'Italian Unification' (OCR)
I also have experience with drafting course work ranging thematically from Napoleon Bonaparte's military strategy to Anglo-Irish relations. This involves building a structured argument - the problems inherint in students' course work tends to be repetitive in my experience. No matter what the subject, the problems can often be cyclical and therefore easily corrected. I charge £15 per hour for assessing coursework - contact me for more information about this.
As of Summer 2018, I have successfuly tutored 35 A-level History students in diverse topics.
£30 per hour (standard)
£40 for 90 Minutes (optional)
If the tutee feels additional sessions are necessary in the build-up to an exam date, that can be arranged.
I am also available to mark/edit coursework material via email. I charge £15 per hour for this service and have often been able to transform grades from D to A with just a couple of hours heavy editing/restructuring.
I believe the key to successful exam technique is repetition of study and thorough understanding of cause and effect in world affairs. It is very important to gain a friendly rapport with the student, and my style of tutoring facilitates a good learning experience and mutual understanding based on the student's own interests and study style.
I have a TRACK RECORD OF SUCCESS - most recent students include Fraser who went from B to A on his 'Britain: 1945-2007' exam (2016), Ben who went from D to B on his Tsarist Russia resit (2015) and John who went from an E to A on his Italian Unification resit (2015).
