« Jake is a fantastic tutor and has really helped me through many tests and exams. His lessons are always interesting and engaging. He is brilliant at explaining things in simple, concise ways which make hard to understand concepts much easier. Jake is also a really good person, who is easy to talk to and has a great sense of humour, which he also incorporates into his teaching. I would highly recommend Jake as a tutor to everyone! »

History Graduate from University of Edinburgh offering tutoring in Secondary School level history. Friendly and dedicated tutor!

Methodology

Lessons will take on a set structure that will go over topical information, sample questions and mini-tests to ensure that students are able to adapt the information they learn to exam style questions. When near a test/exam, lessons will be more like a Q&A session followed by a mock test which we will both go over. Generally, I will try to make the lessons as enjoyable as possible as I believe it helps students learn better. Lessons will be around 1 hour long but can be extended if requested.

Experience

In terms of tutoring experience, I have tutored family friends as well as being part of a group that worked in a maths department aiding pupils with additional support needs. In addition to that, I have been formally tutoring since the summer and have built up good relationships with my students and have improved my approach to lessons.

A little about myself: I am 22 and have a MA with Honours degree in history who is passionate about modern history such as the World Wars and Nazi Germany but I am willing to learn about other topics to facilitate tutoring such as recently, the history of medicine in Britain. My career goal is to become a History teacher in a secondary school therefore will use this as an opportunity to enhance my teaching experience.

I am a friendly, reliable and approachable guy who knows the value of hard work which I will bring to tutoring students. As much as I want to share my passion for history with others, my main goal is to ensure students achieve their full potential and succeed in the subject. To this, I will be dedicated and will do all I can to help. I will communicate with both parents and students to create a good relationship in which we can communicate needs, concerns and the triumphs that I’m sure will come from the lessons. You will find me to be a professional, motivated and enthusiastic individual who wants nothing more than to see students excel.

I have known Jake for many years.
I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor.
He is a very reliable and dedicated individual.
He sets high, reasonable standards for his students and then gives them the tools to succeed. People are motivated and intellectually stimulated by his successful teaching techniques.
Jake is very well liked and I think this coupled with his approachability makes him a great leader and easy to build rapport with.

I worked alongside Jake at our part time job in a cafe/adventure park for multiple years. Jake is a very kind and caring person. He shows patience, understanding and empathy towards all costumers and colleges. He is a customer favourite due to his welcoming and bubbly personality. Jake is always committed to his job, putting all his effort into everything he does - which I’m positive he will do with his tutoring. Jake is great with people of all ages and would make a super tutor.

Jake is an approachable and thoughtful tutor who has a talent for explaining historical topics and concepts that are often vast and complex in simple, thought provoking and easily remembered ways. Thanks to Jake I managed to achieve one of my highest grades at university level in the class that I was originally struggling the most with. His love of the subject shines through and makes studying far less daunting, I cannot recommend him enough!
