MA Medieval Studies student offering History tutoring up to A-level in York

Methodology

I am willing to tutor students from primary up to Sixth Form/College level. I find the best way to tutor is through using popular culture, art and media to support the learning, as well as make the lessons more interactive.

Background

I have a BA (Hons) degree in History, and I am currently studying to achieve a MA in Medieval Studies from the University of York. I enjoy learning as much as possible and hope that this may rub off on students. I recently completed the Children's University programme at university, as part of this I had to teach a class of primary school children about myths and legends. I tried to make the experience for the children as exciting as possible by including crafts and interactive activities in the lessons.
