Information about Anthony

I am a highly experienced retired teacher with a particular passion for the study of History. Having enjoyed many years teaching students in School, where my lessons were consistently graded outstanding by Ofsted, I am keen to continue working with students on a one to one basis, to share my enthusiasm for History and help students whom I tutor to develop their enthusiasm and skills in the study of History.

I am based in St. Albans and am able to travel within the surrounding area, normally tutoring at the student`s own home.

I offer A Level and GCSE History tuition.

Availability: I am available weekdays and weekends.

I believe in matching tutoring sessions precisely to the individual needs of the student. In some cases this involves revising and clarifying subject content. In other cases, where subject content is securely understood, the focus is on exam technique, specifically essay writing, meeting assessment objectives and making extensive use of exemplar material.

My tutor sessions are always interactive and involve the student engaging through discussion and questioning. I regard it as one of my responsibilities to explore as wide a range of educational resources as possible, including alternative text books, historical interpretations, DVDs and original source material.

Range of historical periods offered including:
-The Angevin Kings 1154-1215
-Tudor and Stuart England 1485-1689
-Britain confronting Fascism 1920-1945 (including World War 2)
-British History 1940-1990
-Anglo-Irish Relations 1800-1922
-The French Revolution and Napoleon 1774-1815
-Russian History 1856-1991
-Race Relations in the USA 1861-1968
-Germany 1871-1991
-Italy 1896-1943
-The Cold War 1945-1991 (including the Vietnam War)
-Other periods of study also considered.

Willing to travel: 8 miles

Experience: I have taught History for over 20 years in Secondary School for GSCE, A Level and Oxbridge Entrance. I taught a range of ability across a wide variety of historical periods as required in the exam syllabuses.

Since retiring from mainstream school I have spent 2 years tutoring one to one, mostly for A Level History candidates, anxious to achieve required grades for University entrance.

Antony began tutoring my daughter for her History A level at a time when she was feeling very despondent. Antony changed
all of that with his thoughtful, knowledgeable and calm manner. It was lovely to watch as my daughter grew in confidence, developed her skills and clearly enjoyed her tutoring sessions. If you are looking for an excellent tutor, then look no further - I can not recommend Antony highly enough !

If you are looking for an outstanding, engaging and experienced tutor for your son/daughter to be supported through their GCSE History course then look no further than Anthony. We cannot recommend him highly enough. My daughter has thrived since being tutored by him to the extent that she felt confident and very well prepared for her History papers despite suffering from anxiety in general. Anthony has reignited her love of History; she enjoyed their lessons together and they covered a large amount of content in a relatively short space of time. Excellent Tutor.
