Specialising in online tuition for A Level History! I am an experience tutor, teacher, and examiner for A Level, GCSE, and IB History, and wherever you are in the world, I'm here waiting to help!
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 specialty, 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.
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. You can view my availability and make a booking through my calendly link.
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.
