Information about Harry
I am a tutor, historian, and charity-sector professional in my early thirties. I grew up in Leamington Spa, and have since lived and worked in Liverpool and Bristol. I live in Glastonbury with my wife of three years. I am a keen cyclist and hiker, I enjoy playing bass guitar, and I love watching football and cricket. I am a long-suffering Coventry City fan.
Availability: I am primarily available 8am-6pm Monday to Friday, but I am very flexible.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I studied and later worked at the University of Liverpool, where I received a BA, MA, and PhD in History. My PhD research focused on the fear of invasion in Edwardian Britain. As an independent postdoctoral researcher, my current research concerns the cultural history of British Invasion anxieties. My work appeared in several journals including Contemporary British History, Theatre Notebook, and The Wellsian. I am the editor of the H. G. Wells Society Newsletter.
I have taught History at the University of Liverpool and Defence Studies at Kings College London. I also coordinated the English Language GCSE course for 3A Tutors (based in Bristol) 2017-18. I have worked with 3A since 2014, predominantly tutoring GCSE and A Level students in History, English Language and Literature, and Sociology. More recently I have worked with Belmore Education, teaching UK-based international students who returned home during the COVID-19 epidemic.
My approach to tutoring is based on adaptability and building a solid rapport with students. Students can require very different things from their tutors - while some need to tighten their exam technique others want to discuss conceptual ideas and debate ideological positions. I aim to treat every student as an individual with unique needs, tailoring my approach as much as I can.
