Information about Nicholas
I have been teaching A level history consistently since completing an MA in history in 2012. I have a good knowledge of Civil Rights, Stalin`s Russia, Britain post-WW2, Germany 1890-1945, plus other bits and pieces, e.g. I have recently taught the Vietnam War. I can basically pick up and teach any area of history that is required. It`s all interesting to me!
I usually get the student to work on a large sheet of newsprint with a marker pen and we work together to produce notes/diagrams on the set topic.
I also have been an EFL teacher in Russia, 1997-99 and 2002-6, 2009, and 2011. I have taught general English, business English, and English in preparation for exams, IELTS and First Certificate.

Tutors Response :
Outstanding - really has engaged my son and he now is working hard - couldn`t recommend him enough :)
Tutors Response :
The tutor is very knowledge and very resourceful. He knows his subject but likes to challenge the student. Instead of telling them the answer he guides them to think for themselves. He has been very helpful to my daughter. She likes his approach and finds the discussion interesting. She now has a better understanding of the subject.
