Personal Description:

A FIRST CLASS degree holder, I have tutored A-level History since September 2009 and am able to tutor students in various aspects of Politics and 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 1945. 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 office of prime minister.

Tutoring Experience:

Since commencing tutoring in September 2009, I have specifically tutored the following A-level Units:
'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 2015, I have successfuly tutored twenty-three A-level History students in diverse topics.

Fee Structure:
£25 per hour (standard)
£40 for 90 Minutes (optional)
If a pre-agreed session is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice there is a charge of £5.
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.

Tutoring Approach:

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).
