Personal Message
I am passionate about teaching. Formerly a university lecturer, I am now a full time independent scholar and tutor. Tutoring is something I see as essential; one reason for choosing to resign from my academic post is to concentrate on this.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I am considered one of the country's leading interdisciplinary scholars, with a particular expertise in History (my original subject) but also law and criminology. My expertise in using printed sources means that I can also offer teaching in English (language and literature) at A level and GCSE. My expertise in history ranges over a long chronological period, as well as encompassing British, European and international/colonial histories (especially for the eighteenth century to the late twentieth).
Tell me about your qualifications.
My PhD is in History, gained from the University of Wales in 1982 and I have also a BA (Hons) in History (Lampeter, University of Wales, 1977). I am a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society (since 1995) and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (since 2002).
What kind of experience do you have?
At university level, I have thirty years of experience at a range of institutions, most recently Nottingham Trent University (1992-2013), mainly teaching History but also contributing to Law, Media Studies, Criminology. In terms of History teaching, at first year level I have expertise in world and international history, modern British and European history, imperial history. My specialisms at second and third (and higher) levels include socio-cultural history of the C18th to the present; gender, crime history, philanthropy, history of ideas. At GCSE and A level, I worked for a range of tutorial agencies and colleges between 1977 and 1992 and have sustained my connection with teaching at that level through successful informal tutoring of the sons and daughters of colleagues and friends. I have also been involved in marking GCSE and A level History and in A level syllabus development through my roles with the Social History Society and the Royal Historical Society. I am also very experienced in helping people with dyslexia and dyspraxia - at both GCSE/A level and university level.
How much do you charge?
I normally charge £40 per hour for GCSE; £45 for A level/university coaching/UCAS form assistance; and upwards (by negotiation) for university level tuition. I do not charge for travel within London, so long as a venue is within reasonable walking distance of a bus-stop.
Where do you teach?
I am prepared to teach at home (or from home, online and via Skype); I am also prepared to travel to student homes so long as the transport options are feasible.
When are you available?
Normally, I am available after 12pm Monday to Friday and up to 7pm (this can be later by arrangement); and I am also available at weekends by arrangement, after 12pm and up to 5pm.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
Normally, GCSE and A level up to university level (undergraduate and postgraduate); thus normally from ages 14 to 94!
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
GCSE, A Level, International Baccalaureate, BA, MA, PhD
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
Via internet (including Chat options) and Skype to provide an opportunity for 'face-to-face' sessions
Do you belong to any professional organisations?
Royal Historical Society
Royal Society of Arts
Royal Society of Medicine (Open Section/History of Medicine)
Where and with whom did you train?
No formal training
Tell me about some of your current students.
Currently, I am tutoring a dyslexic and dyspraxic young man (17), who I successfully tutored through his GCSEs, in his A level History, Classical Civilisation and English. He is, like many students with that combination, highly intelligent and highly frustrated at his inability to cope in class. He also is easily bored, having a quirky mind - and being dyspraxic it is very important for him to have auxiliary questions which a topic on the syllabus can spark off. It is thus necessary to spend time explaining that side-line, and then to return to the main track of the topics for the day's tutorial session. I help to explain what lies behind the questions asked and help him to plan and structure his written work - something he can find particularly challenging.

I am also tutoring a young man (15) who is dyslexic in his GCSE level History and Classical Civilisation. Again, extremely bright but also easily bored, it is a matter of focusing him on the subject in hand and locating a topic in the wider 'jigsaw' of history (to show why studying a topic has a point) as a preliminary to planning for essays, advising on extra research and reading.

I also help his older sister, at her request, with online tutoring as she is currently in her second year at Edinburgh University, doing history. Here it is a matter of tutorial guidance, pushing her to consider the implications of what she has found out in her reading, and helping her to see its relevance to a particular assignment - suggesting how, also, she can widen that research and reading along the lines she raises as a consequence.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I look forward to helping you to become interested in and to see the point of your assignments - and their value for you - because it is more than a matter of passing exams. You are likely to have much more to offer than you think, and I look forward to discovering your potential with you.
