BA History student at King's College London offering general or specific history lessons

Methodology

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.

Experience

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.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £12/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £60
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £110

Details

I will be more than happy to fund my travel. Free cancellation up to 24 hours prior.

Joe's CV

31 Burrowlee Road, Sheffield, S6 2AT
Email: (concealed information)
Tel: (concealed information)2, +1 (concealed information)

I am an amiable, enthusiastic and reliable person with a keen interest in nurturing youth-work and activity-planning.

Presently I am looking to gain greater administrative and face-to-face experience as part of the heritage sector. In my third-year of university study, I am seeking an initial role in curation, alongside my efforts in regards to further study.

Education and qualifications;

• January-May 2018 - The George Washington University, Washington D.C
Modules taken: Civil War and Reconstruction, Land and Power in Israel/ Palestine, The Post-War Jewish Experience 1945-1950, African American History since 1865.

• 2016-2019 - King’s College London, University of London
BA Hons, History (3rd Year)
Current modules include: Jazz and the United States, Free Standing Long Essay orientated around the Palestinian Nakba of 1948, Thematic unit considering ideas of God. Associate of King’s College London (AKC) course based on theology.

• 2014- 2016 Tapton High School, Sheffield
A-levels: Art and Design (A*) History (A) Politics (B)
AS-level: Politics (A) History (A) Art (A) English Literature (B)

• 2012- 2014 Robert Smyth Academy, Market Harborough
GCSEs: History (A*) Psychics (A*) Chemistry (A) English Language (A) English Literature (A) Maths (A) Religious Studies (A) Physical Education (B) Art and Design (C)

Work, volunteering and recognition:

• December 2017- May 2018 – National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian, Washington D.C
During my time at the Smithsonian I helped lead children’s sessions based around reading short-stories and crafts linking to the museum’s collection. This volunteering also allowed me to sit down with the museum curators and historians, culminating in aiding to organise an RAF anniversary air show at Chantilly, VA.

• September 2017- Grabthai, Front of House and Catering Team, London
Working in a high-paced environment has demonstrated my ability to work effectively under pressure. Through working at Grabthai, I have also gained a comprehensive knowledge of food preparation, serving and addressing customer concerns highlighting my strengths in communication.

• June- July 2017- Paid Fundraiser, HOME Fundraising, Sheffield
Through engaging the public about various charitable causes, most notably that of Cancer Research UK, I reinforced my skills in communication and persuasion. Fundraising also provided an environment in which I had to meet regular-high targets within a short-time frame.

• December 2016- January 2017- Barista, Temptation Coffee Shop, Sheffield
At Temptation, I was able to connect with customers and understand their wants. Coping with multiple orders also demonstrated my skills in coping under strenuous situations.

• 2016- 2017- Trustee on the board of directors, Congregational Federation Limited
I have been involved in the national decision-making body of the Congregational Federation, a Christian organisation, having been nominated by fellow members of the national youth. Decisions have included funding of church positions and programmes as well as dictating church direction. This has allowed me to gain financial experience; overlooking budgets and investments as well as a knowledge of how important plural decision-making is to charity work.

• 2016-2017- Core Team, Congregational Federation
The responsibilities of this elected role included representing concerns and offering opinions at regular national and regional meetings, building relationships abroad (displayed in travelling to Zambia, South Africa and the Netherlands), alongside helping to devise engaging youth-camps UK wide.

Additional skills;
• Public speaking; seen via addressing groups of over 1,000 people whilst on placement in Zambia and presenting findings to the PKN national board (Protestant Church of the Netherlands).
• Good at communicating with all ages; through youth-work and volunteering at the Union Chapel Open Wednesday sessions.
• Ability to write for various purposes whether academic, formal or centred on publicity. Shown through having been published in regular newspapers and most recently The Observer.
• Sympathetic of others’ situations and willing to aid those in vulnerable situations; shown through volunteering at the Margins Project’s Winter Night Shelter. This involves conversing with the guests, securing the building and being readily available for residents throughout the night.
