- History and Philosophy graduate offering lessons in history and philosophy in Tunbridge Wells. Recent graduate from the University of Exeter with a first class honours degree with a Dean's commendat

Methodology

Tutor can be broken down into two aspects: Content and knowledge; and Technique. Depending on the student, I am able to cater to both these aspects (providing that the topics are told in advance for the content-based).

My lessons are mainly for GCSE and A-Level students who are struggling with all aspects of learning around the subjects of History and Philosophy, such as exam and essay technique, as well as content within the respective subjects.

Lessons will be comprised of one or two hour sessions in which the student can discuss what they believe they need to improve on. I will explain the topic in question, go through the key concepts, and go through relevant essays with the students. I will also recommend additional resources if this is of use to the student.

The style of learning is based on what works for the student, whether this is just simple note taking or active learning! As such, this would be discussed with the student as to what works for them.

Available for online sessions

Ultimately, I am here to help the student to the best of my ability and help them succeed in future academic endeavours. Look forward to hearing from potential students soon!

Teaching Style:
This is obviously dependant on the student, however in a generic lesson I would explain the topic of the lessons, identifying key concepts which the student would need to focus on, while also recommending key resources which would help the student. Finally, I would put the topic in the context of an essay question, demonstrating what the student should look for and how they should answer the question.
