Humanities graduate offering general tuition and guidance, with use of specific case studies in History, Art History, Human Geography, Politics and International Relations and Geopolitics.

Methodology

My classes are based on, only the very best of my work from my academic past (essays mostly). To put it simply, I condense my written work into a series of presentations, so you will get, not only, potentially invaluable information, you will also be in stiches (I often forget how funny I am).

Experience

I am a university graduate who studied at the prestigious and highly rated Geography department at Royal Holloway, University of London. I started my academic journey at Guildford College of, where I graduated at the top of my class (Access to Arts and Humanities). My expertise can be of particular assistance with regard to specific, esoteric case studies in History (causes of the American Civil War), Art History (the transition from the renaissance to the Baroque), Human Geography (John Snow, the New Zealand flag Referendum, etc), Geopolitics (the Syrian Nakba). I am relatively new to tutoring, so I am willing to give you your first lesson for free, so you can see how interesting these topics are.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £10
Rate for online lessons : £30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £175

Details

Seamus's CV

I attended Guildford College, and completed an Access to Higher Education diploma in Arts and Humanities, which allowed me to attend a highly reputable university, studying Human Geography.

I think that there is a lot to be said in support of using conversation to teach a learner and find out which methods will be most effective in benefitting their education.

As my access course was quite broad in terms of the topics that were covered, I have a lot of knowledge which could be passed on. Human Geography, History, Geopolitics, Art History, Philosophy and International Relations are the subjects which I teach.

I tend to use a mixture of conversational teaching methods and visual teaching methods with the balance depending on what I think would be most beneficial for the learner.

Personally I prefer to use conversational methods but if I think that the learner in question would benefit from the use of visual methods then I am happy to use them. For me, this is about helping the learner.

If I had to describe my teaching method broadly, I would say that it is about encouraging and cultivating a fascination with the subject matter. This is how the best teachers operate. They do not rely on punishment or bribery to get their students to learn.
