My name is Esther Richardson I am a Masters student at the University of Sheffield, I have a BA (hons) degree in History and Philosophy and I am training to teach secondary school History. I love History and I love to teach. Lessons will mostly cover essay writing skills, how to handle primary sources and how to interpret historians writings.
I give one-on-one lessons for most of the time, but I can also tutor small groups with the same level of care. I wish to provoke a discussion rather than lecture alone, and try and encourage answers rather than to simply give them to the student, so they are able to perform as such in the exam.
I base my classes around a starting point, and see where the interests of the students lie and go from there! My main interests and research lie in American History - however, my degree has exposed me to a great deal of other areas of history and politics.
A little bit about me: Hello, my name is Eni. As stated in the title I am currently an undergrad at the University of Sheffield. History has been my specialty for 5 years, so I am eager to help GCSE students develop their skills into hopefully achieving an A/A* or simply achieving their target grade.
My method as a teacher is to work from either the particular interests or problem areas you want to focus on or to take the existing syllabus and work through each topic systematically with you reviewing as we go with practice answers and discussion.
I am confident in tutoring up to A-Level in any historical topic. My particular strength is on developing essay skills, critical analysis and argument. My preferred teaching method is to use past exam papers, to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the student and subsequently develop their skills and confidence.
As someone who has experience in tutoring, I have come to realise just how important it is to cater to the needs of each student as everyone learns in their own way. I am willing to try many different methods in order to help my student find their own unique way of learning, one that will help them move forward.
I am a firm believer that everybody has the potential to excel in their studies, provided they find a way in which to enjoy learning. I completely understand the stress, anxiety and low moments that can come from A level studies; being under a great deal of pressure on top of being in a learning institution and being taught in ways you don't enjoy is not conducive.
I can provide support to students up to graduate level in History. My specialism lies in Modern American history, however my undergraduate has exposed me to all periods of History so can happily teach to suit your preference/needs. I am friendly, organised and personable and have experience working with children of primary school age.
I am a University student with good A levels offering 1 to 1 tuition to an A level standard. Structure will consist of me explaining a topic, you asking questions. Then me prompting you to explain it back to me. From there we will discuss the finer points of the topic.
Hi, my name is Will Terry, I am currently in the second year of my undergraduate degree, and I would love the opportunity to pass on any knowledge relating to French or History that people are looking for.
I am a thirty-four year old father of one, with a first class History degree (BA Hons) from the University of Oxford and a Masters in Print Journalism from the University of Sheffield (Distinction). I offer bespoke one-to-one tuition in and around Sheffield. I specialise in tutoring History at A-Level and GCSE but I also offer help with university applications and Oxbridge interview/exam prep.
Hello! I give lessons to students studying history at GCSE and A-Level. My lesson structure will be dependant on what period of history you want tutoring in, but will mostly be given as a lesson in the first half and then working on exam questions and techniques in the second half.
21 year old student with 2:1 in History giving lessons to Secondary School children to prepare them for their GCSEs. I am very patient and understanding, and know that sometimes people take a while to learn. Therefore, I will take time to make sure you/ your child has grasped the information.
I am a second year student at the University of Sheffield studying Politics and International Relations. I offer 45 minute lessons on topics within the disciplines of history, politics and English / literacy for a wide range of students. As a tutor I aim to make my lessons fun and engaging while also challenging students to bring out their full potential.
I take a student-centered approach to learning, coaching and facilitating student learning and overall comprehension of material, as well as monitoring progress.
I like embedding study skills in lessons so that students become more independent and understand exactly how to study. I also believe that learning requires more than reading and memorisation, so I try different tailored approaches to learning dependent on the student.
My teaching method would be based on a set up that corresponds to an Oxford style tutorial; 1 on 1 communication, analysising contentious issues and recurrent debates within scholarly work and research.
I would like to give lessons to GCSE students and younger, who wish to receive extra help in history. I approach topics with enthusiasm because, despite some seeming 'boring', all topics in history have something interesting worth learning about. My teaching methods include, discussing the topics and putting across opinions on both sides, as well as creating spider diagrams and planning out essays.
