History graduate offering lessons in History, Politics, and related fields up to university level

Methodology

I place a heavy emphasis on two-way communication during my classes. I think it is essential for the student to be constantly engaged by allowing them to try to reach the answers themselves.

The focus of my lessons is split between firstly fundamental essay writing techniques and secondly helping the student to understand the broader concepts and tricky subject matters at stake. I bring my own lesson plans to achieve this but am also arrive to each lesson ready to be adaptable to each student's particular needs.

Each of my lessons are structured towards towards the main target of the student, whether that's an important public exam or weekly support with tricky lesson.

I hold a first class honours degree in History from UCL and try to implement some of the tutoring styles I received during my undergraduate in the lessons I teach.

Experience

I taught weekly History lessons to small groups of A level students for two years at St Thomas More's School during my undergraduate degree in History at UCL. I have also offered one to one tuition on a private basis for History A level.

Volunteering and Employment

Spanish tutoring with 8-11 year olds (2015)
During my final year of secondary school I volunteered for two hours a week at a local primary school. I worked with young children who did not have access to Spanish teaching within their regular curriculum, helping them prepare for secondary school.

Work Experience at the Children’s Radio Foundation (2015)
I spent a few weeks on a project with the Children’s Radio Foundation in a summer holiday during school. We spent time planning ways we could encourage more young people in several African countries to address important issues within their community.

Contract analyst with British Gas (August-November 2015)
For the first few months of my gap year I worked full time at a British Gas Office in my home city, Oxford. I shall always value my time there because it gave me a first insight into the world of adult work.

Coffee Shop Assistant with Marks and Spencer (November-February 2015)
I moved to Marks and Spencer because, having saved money for travelling at British Gas, I wanted part-time hours to free up space in the week for my university applications. I developed my ability work under pressure, regularly working under-staffed shifts and overtime.


Club Lounge Assistant with Virgin Active Gym (May-August 2015)
The last job on my gap year came after my travels and required a very similar skill set to that of Marks and Spencer. I was quickly assigned greater responsibility by my manager, often having to deal with the weekly turnover and general financial matters.

Internship at Wiley Publishing (May-July 2018)
My co-intern and I were tasked with completing a 10-week research project which delved into the way in which Wiley reported to their journals on their impact. Despite the skills this experience lent me, it also made me realise that my long-term career interests did not lie in publishing.

History Tutor to A level students (January 2017- May 2019)
Whilst studying at University I have also tutored history in a large comprehensive school in Wood Green. I loved this job and the connection I have with the students. Our lessons often turn into broader conversations regarding the current political situation in the UK and beyond.

Volunteering with a Social enterprise project (Present)
Currently, I am involved in catering agency work to earn money whilst volunteering in a social enterprise project at a very early stage (hence the lack of official name). Based in the social enterprise platform “Year Here’s” offices we are developing a workshop that aims to tackle sexual violence by men using an alternative approach focused on relationships and intimacy.

Applicum Advisors (Present)
I have spent my summer working on a private tuition business with a friend which we hope to officially launch in the next few weeks. We specialise in university admissions advice but also offer standard private tuition. I oversee the pro bono scheme that aims to provide voluntary tuition to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Extra-curricular

My real passion is for politics, policy, and journalism. I have written for my university newspaper with a focus on international issues. The link to my first article, exploring the historical causes of the migrant crisis on the US-Mexican border is here: (concealed information)

I also love to follow and play football. I have played for my University team for the last three years and have also organised and captained a separate team that plays mid-week in 5 aside and 7 aside leagues.

Skills

• Spanish (intermediate)
• Microsoft Office Skills
