Information about Claire

• Professional History tutor (8+yrs experience).
• Effective and friendly tuition.
• Oxford University, BA History (Double First).

Do you want to avoid wasting your time with someone who has taken up tutoring to get some extra pocket money? I am a professional tutor who offers an excellent value, top-quality service.

My tried and tested approach to tuition:

• Systematic coverage of the syllabus and the skills that you need to succeed in the exams.

• Tailored to your specific needs and learning style.

• Fun and down-to-earth style of teaching.

• Supportive and patient while believing in your ability to achieve your targets.

• Added extra! I bring a creative approach to my teaching. In fact I have an MA in Art.

I have availability Monday to Wednesday, during and after school hours.

Concerned about coronavirus? Please be in touch to discuss the best way to support your child`s education in this challenging time.

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: 8+ years tutoring experience at a top London agency, with students at top schools including the Eton and St Pauls. I have also taught in China, the USA and Japan.
Completed teacher training courses (Keystone Tutors, The Royal Drawing School, and Oxbridge Summer Camps Abroad)

I have a proven track record in tutoring History and writing skills.

I help high-flying students comfortably secure those top grades, using my Oxford Double First History degree experience.

I am especially proud of my record in helping struggling students to really turn things around, hugely boosting their confidence and translating that into exam grades that exceed expectations, going up one, two, or even three grade boundaries.

Are writing skills holding you back? I love to help students get their ideas onto paper. In fact I used to find essay writing difficult in school myself. But I taught myself how to do it well enough to excel in a History degree at Oxford and I even won an award for my dissertation! I know from experience that I can teach these skills to others.

In 2019 my A Level students got places at:
St Andrews

Claire has been so helpful for my Pre-U history-she gives constructive feedback, and after each lesson, I always have something to work on! I learn something new in each class and these lessons has helped me especially with essay writing. Although I was reluctant to have online lessons as I never tried it before, they work surprisingly well! I`d really really recommend her for anyone needing help with history!

Claire was the first Tutor we had from this site for my 15 year old son. After the first lesson he had with Claire for History, my son said it was really good and could he have some more. From a boy who thinks homework is a form of torture this is praise indeed! Claire is now teaching him English as well as History and they are getting on really well. If Claire can make my son enjoy these two least favourite subjects, then she must be a fantastic tutor.

Angela (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Claire is tutoring my son in `A` Level history. His feedback following each lesson is always extremely positive. He tells me she is always fully prepared with material in advance of the lesson and has the text book ready to refer to in case of need. She is very knowledgeable in the subject and what he finds particularly useful is the way she extends his knowledge by getting him to look at the material in new ways. This he hopes will help him to achieve the highest grade in the exam.

Carolyn (Miss)

5/5 Rating

Claire is an incredible tutor! After having 2 crash course lessons with her before my GCSE Mock, my results have improved significantly! She is super friendly and professional. She always prepares notes and video links for the lessons to expand my knowledge on the topics we study and her passion for history never fails to inspire me. Thank you so much, Claire!

Tutors Response :

Thanks Carolyn for the lovely feedback. You`re a pleasure to teach!
