St Andrews Doctoral graduate teaching history, test prep, and academic skill building in Edinburgh

Methodology

In my role, I will help you reach where you want and should be academically, while ensuring you feel confident in your ability to apply your skills and knowledge in the future. I believe in individual-based teaching, which means that I will be looking to get to know you and your learning style so as to make for the most efficacious and efficient learning relationship. Learning is grounded in a trusting, positive relationship between a tutor and student. Our first session will be free and will be used for us to get to know each other, discuss your needs and desires, and your learning style.

Experience

Hello there! My name is Hannah and I have just completed my PhD in Modern History from the University of St Andrews. My degrees are in history but I have experience working in the Third Sector, in publishing, heritage, and campaign organisation. I have tutored at all levels from young children to postgraduate students in their final stages of their doctoral thesis. I have been tutoring for over ten years.

I am originally from the United States but I have found a home away from home in Edinburgh.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions!
