Classical Civilisation tutor with degree in South London, History and literature predominantly

Methodology

I have been tutoring mostly to teenagers and aim to get them to actively engage in the more exciting sides of the subjects. I will be working with you to encourage your own interpretations of works and justifications, this is to help encourage further development rather than simply spoon-feeding answers. Essay and exam technique is also a very important factor and I will be helping you learn how to structure answers. I aim to set out work as simply as possible, to this end I will be using example essays, timelines and I will provide you with key passages for us to interpret together along with a marks scheme.

Background

I first started tutoring to my little sister with her homework but I have since taken a few A-Level students in the build up to their exams. None of them have received less than a B as a final grade, and I have taken both students who wished to learn exam specific studies and those who wished to increase their general knowledge on the subject before taking it up at University.

I felt that my daughter was struggling to understand some aspects of her course so I decided to get her a tutor, I wanted someone fairly young and energetic, and Perry certainly did not disappoint. He is articulate, engaging and teaches with a good deal of humour. Having dreaded the thought of having a tutor, she actually began to look forward to her sessions. Her understanding of the subject has improved enormously, and this is being reflected in her grades. I could not recommend Perry more highly.

He was really friendly and helpful. Perry broke down the information so it was easier for me to understand. Would definitely recommend!
