Graduate student with a BA in History from the University of Cambridge, tutors primary and secondary school pupils in London

Methodology

Can give interactive lessons on any historical topic, as well as essay coaching for GCSE, AS Level, A Level, and IB students. I have extensive experience in essay-writing, with my undergraduate dissertation receiving a first class mark, and my lessons will focus on instilling skills as well as content.

Experience

I began tutoring last summer and have given lessons in History, English, and German and have also worked on developing short multimedia lessons for GCSE students with the company TWIG World Limited. These experiences have allowed me to develop an interactive approach to teaching that seeks to present a multifaceted view of history through the lens of different media.
