A history graduate with a Master's degree offering to tutor in London

Methodology

I am a history graduate who would love the opportunity to tutor secondary and university level students. I believe every student learns differently and so structure every lesson to suit the student! I am passionate about history and teaching and wish to pass that along to my students!

Experience

I was a tutor to two classes of thirteen first and second year university students over the course of two years while completing my Masters. Through in-class discussions and detailed feedback on essay work students work improved as they gained a deeper understanding of historical concepts and essay writing.
