Abbie - Newbridge - ESOL (English)

Methodology

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).

- 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

- 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.

Background

- 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.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No.
