History postgraduate offering tuition in any period at all levels. I have a First Class undergraduate degree and will very soon have a Masters in the subject.

Methodology

As a tutor, I would maintain a relaxed environment, allowing for open discussion of the material, including past exam papers. I would maintain an effective balance between tutor support and the student's independent work. I understand that essay questions can be both daunting and confusing, but I will help students approach them with confidence. Often students struggle to know which evidence to draw upon in their essays. To that end, I will coach them toward understanding the relationship between evidence and argument. I can then help students express themselves with both clarity and purpose. I aim to offer a structured and engaging experience that will hopefully capture the student’s interest in the subject. I can provide extra work and am happy to arrange a flexible teaching schedule.

I took the Oxford HAT entry test so I would also be happy to provide guidance for Sixth Form students preparing for the exam and interviews.

Experience

I am a 22 year old prospective Ph.D. student, originally from the Lake District, and a recent graduate of the University of Edinburgh’s masters (MSc) programme in History. Though I am yet to receive an official classification, my dissertation on British perceptions of Russia in War and Revolution has been nominated for Edinburgh’s postgraduate prize in British history. I also have a first class (1:1) undergraduate degree in History from Royal Holloway, University of London. Currently, I am applying for doctoral courses that will allow me to further pursue my interests in Russian history.

During my degrees, I have covered a vast array of periods ranging from ancient to modern history. I would be comfortable providing tutoring in any period and I can offer guidance on exam technique, source-based questions, and longer coursework essays. Furthermore, my extensive experience in studying the past will allow me to instil skills into students wishing to take the subject to higher levels.
