    Frankie Evans A-level History Tutor (North West London) Picture In the past I've taken tuition jobs from across London, travelling up to 45 minutes to visit a family.

The fact that Nigel Farage and the Tory Right were able to goad him into such a car crash decision...
  • The Key to Writing a Good History Essay.

    Dr Janet Rose A-level History Tutor (Bath) Picture If there is one key thing that you must do to get a good mark in an AS or A-level history essay, it is to answer the question.  It sounds easy, doesn’t it?
