Andrew - Brookfield - History

Methodology

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Broadly speaking I teach History, although I specialise in twentieth century American Political History. I am also well versed in twentieth century European history, especially the dictatorships of Germany, Italy, the Soviet Union and the Cold War.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I gained my first degree in Modern History and followed this up with a postgraduate diploma in Journalism and News-writing. Since then I have begun a PhD in American Political History which examines Civil Rights and Poverty. Whilst working towards my PhD I have embarked upon a number of training courses one of which has been an academic tutor qualification.

- How much do you charge?

My usual fee is 25 pounds, although I am happy to arrange a reduced rate for a block booking. I am also happy to offer a reduced rate of 15 pounds for an initial consultation to determine the students needs.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to teach either at my home or the student's home, whichever location is most suitable for the student. I am based in Middlesbrough but am happy to travel to local towns such as Darlington, Stockton, Billingham, Sunderland or Hartlepool.

- When are you available?

As a PhD student my timetable is relatively flexible. I am available from 4-9pm on term time weekdays, and 9am -6pm during school holidays.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I am primarily available to teach at GCSE and A-Level, although I am happy to tutor undergraduates whose needs are closely linked to my own academic specialities.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am able to offer online tutorials in a range of ways to suit the student. I can make contact via email, instant messenger or even through skype should that be preferred.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

Remember that knowing the facts is only part of the battle. With subjects such as history it is important you know how to structure what you are talking about otherwise what you are trying to say can get lost. Lastly I can't overstate the importance of research, a good history essay or coursework involved far more than just opening a couple of textbooks, there are a lot of sources of information out there, go explore them!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

As well as working towards a PhD I have been tutoring undergraduates both in a group and individual basis for the last academic year.

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

I have been cleared to work with children by the Criminal Records Bureau.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I gained my first degree from the University of Teesside, and my postgraduate journalism Diploma from the London School of Journailsm. I am currently working towards a PhD at the University of Sunderland.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My most memorable students are the ones who are prepared to argue. The nature of the subjects that I teach means that you can't merely sit back and accept all of the information that is presented to you, it is vital that as a student you are able to form your own opinions and viewpoints.
