History is not just a recitation of facts but also about enjoyment, in my classes we will read and complete given tasks but also engage with questioning types of sources and prevailing narratives. In this way any student will be prepared for whatever tests they will be taking as part of their education.
I am a current undergraduate History student at King's College London and the George Washington University in Washington DC, graduating next year. I have a background in modern history but have been taught the medieval period, early modern period and various contemporary historiography so will be able to help with any topic.
I will be more than happy to fund my travel. Free cancellation up to 24 hours prior.
