I`m a History and Politics teacher, have been since 2002, and have taught a variety of different modules and exam boards. My main areas of specialism are from 1789 to the present day but I have experience of teaching the early modern and medieval eras. I have delivered AS and/or A2 courses on numerous topics including Germany (1919-1945), Italy (unification), Britain (1832-1919), the Tudor era (1485-1603) and Russia (1815-1964). I have experience of OCR, AQA and Edexcel at GCSE and A Level, and Edexcel at IGCSE. Topics covered at KS4 level include Britain 1900-1918, International Relations (League of Nations, appeasement, and so on) 1919-39, Germany 1918-1945, America 1919-1941, Russia 1900-1924, and Cold War 1943-1991. For Politics I`ve taught Global Politics, the Government and the Politics modules, and all ideologies.
My approach is to focus both on content and style of answer, using rubriks and past papers as an integral part of developing understanding. I have developed schemes of work and resource packs from scratch at both GCSE and GCE.
Availability: I am able to tutor on Sundays, or on most evenings after school. I am available on Saturdays in most circumstances. I have no problem with tutoring during holidays as long as the times are mutually convenient.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have almost twenty years of experience teaching History at all secondary levels, including seven as Head of Department and seven as a member of Senior Management. I review and develop resources for the subject via online projects. I am currently Head of Department at a selective independent school in Surrey.Contact this Tutor
