Hi! I've just finished my Oxford undergrad degree in History and am doing a Masters in Early Modern History there next year. I have past experience teaching in various Summer Camps including China and am hoping to gain more experience this Summer. My lessons will aim to improve the essay writing skills of A-level students preparing for university applications and those hoping to do History at a higher level. My lessons will be structured into two parts. We will discuss and analyse primary texts- an invaluable skill for a historian and especially important for those planning to sit the Oxford HAT - and then focus on essay writing. You will produce an essay on a chosen historical topic before the lesson and then, when together, I will critique it and help you develop an efficient style and historical method. I am happy to tailor the lessons so that the primary sources and essays are focused on a specific period.
I have a great deal of past experience tutoring and teaching different age groups and class sizes. I have tutored those doing A-level and Pre-U as well as taking part in the LovVol teaching camp 2017 in Xiamen, China in which I taught classes of up to 25 students History. I have developed skills of time-management and flexibility and am willing and able to tailor my classes to suit my students' specific needs.
I have finished my undergraduate degree at Oxford and am now looking to gain more experience of teaching as I go into a Masters and then a Doctorate. I am able to give advice to those making university applications in History: both about the applications and about the experience of undergraduate work once at university.
