History MA graduate looking to work remotely with experience in teaching History, Science, English Language and Built Environment Careers

Methodology

I love seeing my students grow and positively encourage and praise them in order to build their confidence and unleash their best potential.

I am available to tutor all ages through to degree level. My main specialism is in helping students to write essays, learn research skills and proof-read work.

I am also able to provide lessons on historical subjects, English literature/language, built environment careers/skills and art & design for KS1-5. I am a personable teacher and my methodology is based around seminar and discussion style lessons, with interactive hands on learning challenges for my students. I always set work to be done outside of the sessions so that students can grow outside of our lesson.

Experience

I am an Early Modern History MA graduate with a BA in History. I covered a variety of subject areas in my studies including:
- Anglo Saxon England
- Tudor England
- Victorian Britain
- Holocaust Studies
- Twentieth Century Britain
- Women, Power and Politics
- Public History
- Historiography

I have also worked as an educator in museums teaching classes of up to 30 young people from ages 8-18 for the last 2 years.

I developed and delivered a variety of sessions for school children based on the content of my museum and have inspired young people to discover a love of history, poetry and built environment careers.
