History postgraduate offering tuition in History up to undergraduate level in London

Methodology

When working with students towards an exam or an assessment I think there are three particular areas of importance that need to be properly tackled. Firstly, ensuring student confidence in and understanding of the subject matter and course content itself. Secondly, the development of academic skills such as essay writing, and critical reading and evaluation. Thirdly, understanding and knowledge of the requirements of the exam paper itself, including familiarity with question-style and mark-schemes, and exam-specific skills such as time-management. When tutoring I endeavour to strike an appropriate balance between these three areas to ensure that my students feel comfortable and confident with the material and skills that they will be required to present.

Experience

I am currently studying for a masters in History at UCL, having graduated from Oxford with a first-class History degree last summer. I have been tutoring both English and History for the past year, and am best placed to assist students taking the International Baccalaureate and completing their university applications.
