Information about Florence

Trained by the leading UK graduate teaching programme, Teach First, I taught History to all year groups at a mixed ability secondary school for two years co-leading the new OCR A-LeveI. I am currently a head of History at a boy’s school in West London. I am a young, enthusiastic teacher who is able to tutor History to a wide variety of ages, either for exam preparation, writing technique or to increase confidence in History. I have a high success rate of students achieving the grades they need for university.

Availability: Available after school hours 6-9pm
Weekends 9-5pm

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have experience in teaching the new 9-1 GCSE as well as the new linear A-Level. I am able to tutor students requiring help with historical concepts, terms and key exam skills or to clarify or teach historical knowledge.

My key specialist areas are Nazi Germany, The Tudors, War of the Roses and Elizabeth I. I am currently an OCR examiner for the new History linear A-Level for 2017, 2018 and 2019 and so have received extensive training on exam technique and mark schemes. I obtained 100% A*-B for the new History OCR A-Level 2017 and 2018 extended writing coursework. For 2019 I obtained 100% A* to A for all students in their coursework.

I have experience in tutoring the following OCR Units:
Tudors (early, later)
War of the Roses
Churchill and Britain
Russia and its’ Rulers
The Cold War
Germany (Weimar and Nazi period)
The Middle East
The French Revolution and Napoleon

I have experience in teaching the History Common Entrance exam, as well as specific school’s scholarship paper.

Great tutor

Laziza (Ms)

An Excellent tutor! Florence helped my daughter so much, she increased her topic knowledge, coached her on exam techniques and hugely boosted her confidence in A Level History. She identified exactly what my daughter needs to do to achieve the grade she wanted. Florence has been incredibly supportive since the start. I couldn’t have asked for a better tutor. Since having her as a tutor, my daughter’s grades and performance in history have improved significantly.

I would not hesitate to recommend Florence to any parents looking for a experienced and professional History tutor.

Florence is an awesome tutor who my son got on really well with. Her mastery of History is second to none and even with a short period of tutoring my son achieved an A Grade. I would highly recommend Florence.
