Oxford Historian offering lessons in history, politics and current affairs in Plymouth and Oxford

Methodology

I teach to the needs of the student, but I prefer activities-based and hands-on learning, whereby my requirements of the student are high, but I compliment that by providing a lot of examples which I produce myself. I give lessons to G.C.S.E., A-level and degree level.

Experience

I'm a current student in history who has experience tutoring over the course of four years, including to international students. I have also worked professionally as a legal assistant and am able to offer careers advice to prospective students alongside lessons in history, politics and current affairs.
