I cannot recommend Ross enough. I met Ross at the University of Southampton where we studied History together. Ross is extremely knowledgeable, works to a high standard and is very personable. When I struggled with History assignments, Ross always offered a helping hand and coached me so that I could achieve a high grade.

Ross is an excellent tutor. His passion for history, his skill in explaining complex historical topics, and his patience as a teacher shine through. I would highly recommend Ross as a tutor for all ages and academic levels.

N
Niall

Ross is an insightful and astute academic, with a knack for breaking down complex themes and making them engaging and accessible to all. I studied alongside Ross throughout both secondary education and sixth form. He was and has remained a keen researcher, with an exponential and quite frankly inspiring work ethic. I cannot recommend Ross highly enough, to anyone whom may require support within Historical Studies, Ross is your man.

Lucy

I went to university with Ross and was impressed by his enthusiasm for history and commitment to learning and wanting to teach others. He is very good at engaging with people about the past and is full of interesting knowledge gained from his passion for history. I would highly recommend Ross due to his enthusiasm and his friendly approach to teaching.
