History Graduate Oxford University, tutors history, geography, and English, for GCSE/A-Level. Successfully tutored past Oxbridge Applicants.

About the lesson

I have successfully mentored three students from disadvantaged backgrounds towards Oxbridge entry where I learned the importance of moulding teaching approaches depending on the student. For instance one of the students was very reserved, and thus when it came to interview preparation I brought/taught some of the techniques in more subtle and less formal ways, incorporating them into the conversation. This meant the student was not made nervous by the thought of preparing for a real Oxford interview and led her to being successful in the application process.

From mentoring History courses to various students at my state school, I learned the advantages of teaching the subject through discussion and the use of interactive primary sources. This brought engagement to the classes (usually involving 5-10 students) and raised the confidence of students to speak their thoughts; both of which were crucial attributes when it came to directing attention towards past exam questions. Their engagement and confidence raised through my previous teaching approach allowed them to answer exam questions in a more successful manner.

A typical lesson is usually for around an hour. I wish to end the tutorial by explaining to the student the skills that they have learned/used in that hour, and how they can be applied elsewhere in the course or even to other subjects that they study.

About Erik

At A-Level I secured A* in History, and A in English Lit and Geography at Queen Elizabeth's High School Gainsborough. In 2019 I joined the University of Oxford, reading History BA where I have since been awarded two academic exhibitions for performing at the level of a first, in years one and two. I have just finished my University Exams and was recently accepted onto the highly competitive MPhil Course in Modern Chinese Studies at the University of Oxford. Recently I had a piece of analysis on Christianity in China published by the parliamentary think tank, the China Research Group (CRG), who also shared my analysis with MPs.

I am from North Lincolnshire, and have previously played Football for the County. I support Grimsby Town Football Club, and have a great passion for live music. I am Grade 5 in Guitar. I was also Head Boy at my Sixth Form.
