Doctoral student in History who can help you prepare for exams or expand your intellectual horizons! (online or in London)

Methodology

My approach to tutoring will be to focus on core skills, such as essay structure, writing style, and the critical thinking demanded of humanities students. Within that I will aim to be flexible, always responding to what you most want to get out of a session.

Experience

I've been a tutor for eight years now, teaching alongside my graduate studies. I've taught for over 1,000 hours and more than 100 students. I also have experience teaching tutorials within Oxford University. I've helped A-level students improve their grades from an E to an A in that time, and got students into first choice universities, including Oxford, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Bristol.

Teaching Experience

Private Tuition - self-employed (September 2011-Present)
As a self-employed tutor I help school students prepare for school exams, advance in their studies and explore their passion for History, English Literature or Classical Civilization. I have experience of all major exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR, IB, and CIE. I am punctual, always thoroughly prepared and will work hard to know everything I need to to help my students. Listening well and responding to the needs of the student is a core part of my teaching methodology, and I am able to adapt flexibly to changing circumstances and objectives.

Oxford University – tutor in History (October 2015-Present)
During my doctoral studies I have worked within Oxford’s History Faculty both to teach undergraduate tutorials and to assist in the admissions process. I taught the first year paper ‘Conquest & Colonization: Spain and America in the Sixteenth Century’ and was a teaching assistant for the second year paper ‘Representing the City, 1558-1640’. I also presented papers in my specialist field of early modern Spain. I completed the Faculty’s PLTO (Preparation for Learning to Teach in Oxford) course, which provided me with insights into how to teach in the one-to-one format. Teaching undergraduates required me to develop an agenda of work across a term, and think about how students grow into an understanding of their subject and make connections.

Shakespeare Primary School, Leeds – work experience placement (2005)
I worked in an inner-city primary school as a teaching assistant, including working with students who had just arrived in the country and spoke minimal English. This work helped me be comfortable teaching students from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Other Work

Pitt Rivers Museum (Oxford) – Gallery Assistant (2013-2016)
I worked on the museum floor helping visitors with enquiries, ensuring they respected the rules of the museum, and providing further information about objects on display. I enjoyed engaging with visitors to help them explore the museum and sharing my passion for global history.

Oxford University, History Faculty – HAT marker (2016-present)
As part of the admissions team for the History Faculty, I marked History Aptitude Test (HAT) papers. I familiarised myself with the priorities of admissions tutors and what they look for in candidates. As a result of this work I am better able to help students with Oxford admissions.

Oxford University – Exam Invigilator (2015-present)
I invigilate Oxford exams for papers to be sat within colleges, typically students with additional requirements due to specific learning difficulties or disabilities.This work necessitates a responsible but flexible approach, to balance following the procedure of the exam with an awareness of the needs of the student.

Other Experience

Oxford University Peer Supporter (2008-2010)
I received training in helping fellow students cope with both emotional turmoil and the academic pressures of being an Oxford student. The training helped me hone communication skills that I have been able to apply broadly to other areas of my life, including tutoring.
