A FIRST CLASS history and politics degree holder, I have tutored A-level History since 2009. My last three students went from low grades to A`s in 2019.
In addition to general history studies I am also able to tutor certain aspects of British Politics and Government.
My tutoring specialities:
Britain; society and politics, 1918 to 1997.
Tsarist and Communist Russia, 1855 to 1953.
Germany, 1914 to 1945.
If you decide to contact me, please detail the title of the exam and the theme/topic to be tutored and I will confirm if I can help.
I believe the key to successful exam technique is repetition of study and a thorough understanding of cause and effect in history.
Practice Makes Perfect - the more essay writing that takes place, the better I can assess progress and the more likely a good grade becomes. It is very important to gain a friendly rapport with the student, and I do believe my style of tutoring facilitates a good learning experience.
Two-way communication is very important - while some of the tutorials inevitably become lectures, I always want the tutee to provide thoughts and incites as to the `why?` of any study. History is composed of REAL people doing REAL things - there is always a line of logic to follow in understanding motives. Conversation must be central to all tutorials.
Availability: Negotiable due to a fluid work schedule. Due to day-job commitments it is sometimes unsuitable to attend the home of the student, but a public Newcastle City Centre location has proven excellent with many previous students.
This is all open to discussion and arrangement on an individual basis.
30 pounds sterling for one hour (standard)
40 pounds sterling for 90 Minutes (optional)
If more sessions are required by the tutee in the build-up to an exam date, this can be arranged subject to my availability.
Due to a strict daily schedule, any same-day cancellations will carry a £5 penalty charge.
