Cambridge PhD student gives history lessons to secondary school pupils and undergraduates in London and Kent

Methodology

I am a graduate student and tutor in the final year of a PhD in History at Cambridge. I tutor secondary school history students (at any level), and would additionally consider teaching undergraduate students in areas related to my specialisms; please get in touch to discuss your requirements further if this applies to you. I can also prepare students for Oxbridge interviews in history or related subjects - having studied at Cambridge for my BA, MPhil and PhD, and taught undergraduate students there myself, I have a clear grasp of what admissions interviewers are looking for and how a candidate can show these qualities to their best advantage.

I have a genuine love for my subject and love to pass on that enthusiasm to others. Every student is different and I tailor lessons to their individual needs, but my priority is always to make the subject engaging and relevant so that students are motivated to learn. In humanities subjects such as history, confidence is just as important as knowledge, and very often this is what holds students back. Consequently I aim to equip every student I teach with the confidence and independence to ask and answer their own questions, to challenge their preconceptions, and to form their own opinions on the subject matter. Besides covering course content, I can work with students on skills that can be applied to a range of humanities and social science subjects, such as writing style and essay structure.

If that sounds like the right fit for you then please send me a message outlining your requirements, and I will respond within 1 working day.

Background

I have taught on the history undergraduate course at Cambridge University for the past four years, including lectures and 1-on-1 tutorials, and I have had consistently high feedback from students over this time. I have also tutored a number of AS and A Level students over the past year.
