Personal Message
Specialising in online tuition for International Baccalaureate, A-Level and GCSE History. I'm here to help you with all aspects of your studies, from revising content to preparing for exams, and everything in between!
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach History to all ages (GCSE, A levels, IB, and university).
I also offer university interview practice, and preparation for 11+, 13+, and American SAT exams.
A-Level is my speciality, with particular emphasis on topics including the Tudors; Luther and the Dutch Revolt and most aspects of German, Russian, and American history.
Tell me about your qualifications.
I have an M.A. (2002) and a PhD (2008) in Medieval History from the University of Leeds. My first degree, in History, is from University College London (1999). I took a PGCE in History from the University of York (2000). I also have five A-levels in History, Ancient History, English, Law (all As) and Maths (B).
What kind of experience do you have?
I have been a qualified teacher for the last seventeen years, during which time I have taught at all levels from KS3 to university. I have experience of teaching GCSEs and A-levels, and in an international school where I taught IGCSE and International Baccalaureate. I am also a senior examiner for GCSE and A level History, and IB History, so can give you an 'insiders' perspective on exam technique.
How much do you charge?
I charge between £45-55/hour, and will offer a discount if you book 5 or more lessons in advance.
Where do you teach?
I prefer to tutor via Skype, but can travel to your home in Bath and the surrounding areas (Newbridge, Weston, Lansdowne, Twerton.)
When are you available?
I am mainly free in the evenings, but have some spaces available during the day or at weekends.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach everyone from age 11 onwards, but focus mainly on GCSE, A Level, and university students.
Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
GCSE/IGCSE, A levels, International Baccalaureate
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
No.
Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I mainly use Skype. This is a great way to connect to students all over the world, and sharing files, essays, and other information is so quick and easy.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am enthusiastic about all the subjects I teach, and I hope you will be too. I love learning and exploring new ideas, and hope to instill this love of learning in the people I come into contact with. I am also patient, explain difficult concepts so you can easily understand them, but can also offer high-level advice on thesis and dissertation writing to degree level students. I want to use your time most effectively, so you get the most out of our sessions; we can revise what you've done in class to make sure you fully understand all the angles; we can prep for next week's lessons to give you a head start; we can go over any essays or coursework you might have, or practice for your upcoming exams.
