History Tutor from University of Glasgow 4th year (expected first). Tutoring provided in Glasgow west and city center. To help with Exam technique and revision tactics specifically, as well as general

Methodology

It is impossible to learn the whole of history's curriculum; however, there are specific ways to apply the knowledge and formulate sound historical arguments. I provide tutoring to improve an individual's exam confidence and technique, so that they can feel proficient when entering in to an exam. The techniques I will teach an individual will be transferable to other subjects of a similar matter, such as politics, English literature, Sociology and other social sciences and humanities.

My tutoring will provide the individual with the skills to:
- Be able to approach and dissect an exam question.
- Be able to use the knowledge in a structured manner.
- Consider counter arguments and understand how to analyse historical data.
- Revise efficiently and importantly know what to revise.
- Present material in a formal but interesting way.
- Question themselves and understand where they may have made mistakes in the past.

I tutor those between the ages of 14 to 18 and are gearing up to either coursework or exams. However, these skills are essential for anyone to learn the values behind being inquisitive. With this in mind, I am able to help children between the ages of 10-13 who are entering secondary school, or have recently started, and need help with understanding basic academic skills.

Background

I have direct tutoring experiences in special needs schools, learning young adults with mental disabilities to think outside the box and look at materials in a different way.
My academic experience is rich. Doing a degree at the University of Glasgow in History has given me the opportunity to give presentations, write reports and essays on a frequent basis. I am on a daily basis discussing the teaching methods that I outline.
I have ran independent revision classes with peers and friends who needed support. This has allowed me to discuss learning in a friendly and independent way that is much different to what is offered in the classroom. I have done this with a variety of age groups, including teenagers.
