Information about Olivia
History is my passion and I enjoy teaching and enthusing students about it. I hope to make learning fun and exciting for students, working with them patiently and considerably. I have a PhD in history and I am a highly experienced and capable tutor. I also tutor English, Religious Studies and Art History with confident ability.
Availability: Currently I am only available for online sessions. I have no more after school slots available but I am still taking on students who can have lessons during the day. I will have more availability from July for the next academic year.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Seminar teaching within universities is a key part of my work and I have a great deal of experience working with young people. I have tutored many students in the south Manchester area in varying levels such as GCSE and A- Level.
I have helped my students improve their grades in their subjects with many of my students receiving A*-B grades at A Level and GCSE equivalent. Most importantly, I provide a fun and interesting approach to history, helping students find history fascinating. My mantra is that is students do not enjoy the subject, they will not learn as well, so I intend to inspire students.

Feedback For Olivia (22)
Olivia started tutoring my son in A level history at the beginning of September. He has found the tutoring really helpful and looks forward to his sessions.
So far, my daughter has had two lessons with Olivia and seems to be enjoying them
Olivia has tutored my twin boys for history and English A level this year. Right from one lesson they gained knowledge and enthusiasm. I wish we had found her earlier. Highly recommend.
Olivia has been fantastic, she is a great teacher and has really helped my daughter feel more confident with GCSEs Her communication arranging appointments is great and my daughter has really enjoyed her sessions!! 😊;
Olivia has been super helpful, great tutor and has given my son a lot of confidence. Highly recommended
Olivia is a fantastic tutor. Her lessons are very engaging.
Easy to communicate with and offered valuable feedback for my work.
Olivia is a fantastic tutor and has really helped my son. He throughly enjoys the sessions.
I am really enjoying my lessons with Olivia, she is really knowledgable and has helped me immensely, increasing my knowledge and explaining how to approach the different kinds of exam questions. Thankyou
Olivia is passionate about history. She is amazing, helps you understand the topic thoroughly. My daughter enjoys working with her. I highly recommend Olivia.
My brother went up TWO academic grades with Dr Olivia. A woman sent from God honestly!
Olivia helped my son with his history A level - he really enjoyed her weekly online lessons and he achieved the grades he needed for Uni - thank you Olivia!
Really recommend this tutor, she has helped my daughter get her grades up in History.
Olivia is incredibly knowledgable and so friendly. My daughter really enjoys her lessons, and Olivia is really helping her to understand the history topics she is stying, as well as how to answer exam questions. We approached many tutors, and because my daughter has Italy as one of her topics, most would not take her on as a student. Olivia did not ask the question, however, as she clearly has such a good knowledge of so many areas of history. I would highly recommend her to any A-Level History student (and probably any level, but I can only only speak for A-Level!)
Really happy with Olivia`s input
My daughter keeps telling me how nice Olivia is and how much she enjoys her history lessons with her.
Olivia helped me with my first university assignment that I really struggled with. Because of her help, I was able to obtain a very high mark. She is thorough, very well organised, and explains everything very clearly. I would definitely recommend Olivia to anyone that wants a tutor who is kind, dedicated and always willing to help.
Dr Olivia is a wonderful tutor, patient and engaging. I think my daughter will excel with her in History.
Olivia has helped me a lot with my history A- level. She is very knowledgeable in history overall and made it a more enjoyable topic to study, as history wasn`t really my favourite. In the end, I felt more confident in the work I was producing and managed to achieve an A* for history, both in coursework and exam. I`m really glad I decided to get a history tutor as it`s definitely a subject which sometimes requires you to have conversations and discussions in order to think critically and write better essays.
Olivia is an excellent tutor who we would highly recommend to anyone. Punctual, reliable and well prepared but most importantly our daughter loves her lessons.
Olivia is a good history teacher. She is patient, kind and thoughtful in her approach and I`m sure her influence will raise the `A` level grade outcome. She is also punctual, polite and responds quickly to communications. Recommended.
Olivia has helped my son prepare for his GCSE History exam. She has been brilliant. Olivia is patient, kind and my son looks forward to the lesson. He now feels more confident about his own ability. JH
