Former university lecturer offering teaching in History from secondary to degree level

Methodology

My teaching method is based upon seeking to inspire the individual student with a passionate interest in the subject. I like to employ the latest educational thinking to create a student-centred learning approach to every lesson combined with a more traditional, teacher-led methodology. I love to see students enjoying my teaching and making progress in their learning. I am confident teaching History, Geography, Religious Studies and Theology.

Background

I have a BA, MA and PhD in Modern History and a Secondary School PGCE. I also have a diploma in Theology. I have taught in universities, a college and schools in Africa and the UK. I have published in academic journals and written a number of books for children and adults for Africa.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £12/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £55
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £100

Details

Travel costs will be charged depending upon the distance driven. If the tuition is for Oxbridge entrance or university level classes then I will charge higher rates depending upon the number of lessons requested and the needs of the individual student.

Jonathan's CV

JONATHAN QUENTIN CALVIN NEWELL


PROFILE
I have considerable experience of teaching in a variety of settings both in this country and abroad. A PhD on the First World War gives me a very solid base for teaching secondary school History and a Diploma in Theology means I can teach Religious Studies with ease. I have also published on the history of the First World War. Maturity combined with a PGCE makes me a strong candidate for a teaching post while my role as a school governor gives me insight into the working of a school.
