Information about Paul

I have taught GCSE and `A` level history for over 25 years. Private tutoring can make a considerable difference to overall progress and outcomes. I teach many dedicated students but often they find it difficult to structure answers in ways that analyse and evaluate the question asked. This is particularly true with A level coursework especially when students must incorporate evidence into their assessments. I am a super-specialist on 20th Century German history including Weimar and Nazi Germany and post war East and West Germany. I offer late 19th and 20th Century Russian History and 19th & 20th C British History as well as the Tudors and the Stuarts and US history post 1850. I am extending into China after 1900 and the American Revolution. My knowledge of the First World War is extensive, and I have led Battlefield Trips to France and Flanders as guide as well as group leader. I taught warfare-based courses at A level and the Cold War at both GCSE and A level. At GCSE level I taught Medicine and Health through Time and the American West for over 20 years as well as the Modern World course for students as well as offering Crime and Punishment. I have had excellent feedback from the families of students that I teach and I regularly follow-up between lessons by proving further materials for students on areas they wish to develop. You may just be looking for a few lessons to revise or would like regular support, the best thing about private tutoring is that I am working for you and looking to meet your needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

Availability: The long period of school closure has left many students needing support with existing courses, especially in years ten and twelve. I intend to offer one to one teaching throughout the summer to support my students and a lesson a week can make all the difference. I am particularly keen to support A level History students approaching coursework within the requirements set down by the exam boards. Whatever your needs feel free to contact me at this difficult time for our all our students. If you can please indicate which exam board and the subject topics being studied as this will speed the process up and ensure you have the right tutor for you.

Willing to travel: 12 miles

Experience: 25 years History teaching in schools at A level and GCSE including 11 years as Head of Department. I am now entering my fourth year with Tutor Hunt as a full-time private tutor. I tutor to all the main exam boards AQA, OCR and Edexcel as will as CAIE. I work with school parties as part of the education department of the Severn Valley Railway in my spare time! Please read my feedback reviews from my students both past and present.

Very enthusiastic and professional teacher! Paul is always highly prepared for the lesson and gives the best content relevant to the topic. Paul is highly professional and I would like to say a big thanks to this amazing teacher. I struggled with A level history before, and I got a U in my Paper 2 AS history last year, with only 3 months of studying with Paul, my grade boosted up immensely, I got an A for my exam when I redid it in January! Paul has helped me tremendously with my exam technique, which I used to struggle with, and provided me with the best materials for my course. He is always ready to help, very professional and knows just right how to achieve the best grade possible. Thank You Paul!

Julia ()

5/5 Rating

Paul is a very talented and knowledgeable teacher who is very enthusiastic and clearly wants his pupils to do well and is committed to that aim. Our daughter very much enjoys his lessons and gets a lot out of them as he is a motivational teacher who is an expert in his subject. Paul spends a considerable amount of time over and above his allocated time to ensure that his pupils grasp a topic and is available to help by email if required, replying promptly. I can thoroughly recommend Paul as a tutor.

James (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Paul has done a brilliant job supporting my daughter. He responded within a few hours to our initial enquiry, and couldn`t have been more friendly and helpful. This was even on a Sunday!
Paul`s knowledge on history (we were focused on WW1) is incredible, there didn`t seem to be anything he didn`t know without the need for looking up detail. A very passionate and knowledgeable history teacher who stimulates thought. Highly recommended.
