Information about Duncan
Hold a First Class (Hons.) degree in History from the University of Birmingham and MSc Public Policy from Queen Mary, London.
I have completed A Level History, A Level Politics and A Level English Literature.
I have volunteered in my local school, teaching history and politics to all year groups.
I currently work in politics.
I am able to help prepare for exams or for coursework. I have taught myself courses before teaching them and am happy to take up any new subject.
I am willing to do online and over the phone tuition.
I also sell my notes if students would prefer my booklets rather than have me tutor
I will do my best to respond to all enquiries as soon as possible.
Important: I am happy to make lessons and appointments up to a year in advance. I understand, however, that sometimes lessons need to be moved. When this happens, i must be contacted with 24 hours notice because this is time away from another student. Failure to let me know within 24 hours will mean I will have to charge half of the cost of the lesson. Thank you.
Availability: I am available at all times throughout the week and weekend.
I have better and preferential availability to students who I work with over Skype, on the phone or via email.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: Experience tutoring younger children. I have worked in campaigns to improve education standards for children across the country.
I am happy to take on any time period and teach it. I have a broad interest in history generally.
I am currently teaching or have taught:
- Elizabethan England.
- Crime and Punishment in England.
- Pitt to Peel.
- Russia, Tsars and Communists.
- The Cold War.
- Germany through the ages.
- US Presidential history
- Branches of US Government
- State Government
- China, 1839 - 1989.
- French intervention in Syria
- Gender Equality in the modern Middle East.

Mr Duncan was extremely helpful in assisting me in consolidating for my upcoming citizenship exam. By going through the specification I feel like I learnt what exactly I needed to know in detail. He is easy to talk to and has a wealth of knowledge to teach. I highly reccomend him.
Duncan has been tutoring my son for `A` Level history and in less than 6 months, there has been a vast improvement in his mock grades. Duncan has proved that not only he is knowledgeable but also very professional and flexible. He has helped my son to have confidence in his ability and helped him study more effectively. I highly recommend him.
Duncan has been an amazing tutor. I have achieved a high 2:1 or a First in all the assignments he has helped me with, including a First in my dissertation. I highly doubt I would have achieved these grades if it wasn`t for his help. He gave very clear and detailed feedback on my essays and explained things really well.
Thank you for your help, Duncan!
