Henry - Nunhead - History

Methodology

I am an experienced private tutor specialising in GCSE and A level History, English and Drama. I studied History at Reading University and acting at Drama Studio London, Ealing.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English, History and Drama at GCSE and A level. I also run workshops on interview technique and presentation skills.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have a first class honours degree in History from Reading University. I trained and practised as a criminal barrister; I worked in legal publishing for several years as an journalist/editor; I am currently an actor and communications trainer.

- How much do you charge?

I charge between £35 and £50 per hour depending on the subject and age of the student.This fee normally includes travel. A fee for travel may need to be agreed if the lesson is more than 5 miles away from my home.

- Where do you teach?

I am happy to travel to a student's home within the Greater London area. I live in Nunhead, south east London.

- When are you available?

I'm fairly flexible and am available most days and evenings. I'm happy to do weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Most of my students are of secondary school age. My presentation training clients are older.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, A level and IB

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I'm happy to do some tuition online. For example, I recently helped a student with her dissertation and most of that was achieved online. Tuition will involve skype calls and email.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

One to one tuition is an excellent way to alleviate concerns about exams or falling behind at school. I offer flexibility (I can fit into your timetable) and honesty - I won't unreasonably raise your expectations but I will push you to achieve the best result possible!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

For the last ten years I have been a private tutor in the subjects listed. I have also worked as a drama teacher for Pineapple Performing Arts. I work as a corporate role player for several companies training employees in communication skills. I run my own company providing 'life skills' (interview technique, CV writing, presentation skills) workshops to secondary school students and I offer presentation training workshops to professionals.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I gained a first class degree in History at Reading University. I trained as a criminal barrister at the Inns of Court School of Law in London and was called to the Bar at Gray's Inn. I trained as an actor at Drama Studio London.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My most recent student is doing a film course at the London College of Communication. She needed some help with editing and proof reading her dissertation. This job was a bit more involved than crossing 't's and dotting 'i's; it required extensive research, plenty of constructive feedback and some searching questions of my student's arguments. In the end she achieved a B grade which we were both thrilled with.

Tutoring sessions with Henry were personal and in depth with an emphasis on looking at a question or topic from different angles. The sessions greatly increased my confidence in essay writing as well as taking a lot of stress off my upcoming history exams.

From working at a B grade at the end of year 12, Henry's sessions helped me to achieve an A* grade in my final A-Level exams.
