Passionate A-Level History student giving GCSE History help over the internet

Methodology

I offer help for GCSE or under who are struggling with content knowledge and understanding of exam questions; their meaning and their structure. I'm a keen believer in trying to make history fun and I want to offer as relaxed helped as possible, as I can remember the stresses of exam season.

Background

I am an A-Level History student who is predicted an A, so I know my way around an exam paper! I've loved history for as long as I can remember and am working towards doing a teaching degree at university this year.

Open University

I wanted to use my spare time wisely whilst between GCSE’s and A Levels so I have signed up for an open access internet course with the Open University and am currently studying the Holocaust, for which I should get a Statement of Participation once completed.

Holocaust Ambassadorship

In March 2019, I took part in the Holocaust Ambassador Trust’s Lessons From Auschwitz project, visiting the sites of Auschwitz One and Birkenau. The LFA is made up of 4 components; orientation, where we prepared for our one day visit, learnt about pre-war Jewish life and had the privilege of hearing a Holocaust survivor speak, the one day visit, a follow up seminar, reflecting on the visit and the contemporary relevance, and finally Next Steps, where each participant is required to design and carry out a plan to spread the knowledge that they have gained from the experience. I wrote a blog post for my school website, and organised an assembly sharing my experiences, and I am now subsequently a HET Holocaust Ambassador


Personal Statement

In a world which is constantly changing, how can we move forward without first learning from where we have been and our past successes and failures? To me, history is a dynamic subject which is critical in furthering our understanding of our placement in the world and how we, as a society, are where we are now. History and war studies offer a unique combination; as my love of history stimulates me deeper into further research particularly the rise of the Third Reich, The Holocaust and the Second World War. History is no longer just a subject to me, it is a way of life as the subject is always all around me, and has a huge impact on my life both in the classroom and at home.

I have studied history as one of my chosen subjects for 4 years, but it is my time outside of lessons which has furthered my passion for communicating and studying about the past. Through experience re-enacting at 1940s living history events as a living historian, I have been able to develop my skills as a good communicator and have increased the level of depth of my knowledge about many aspects of the Second World War, particularly the French Resistance and American Infantry. This has enabled me to further continue to learn and use this to my advantage whilst at university studying the respective subjects. In March 2019, I took part in the Lessons From Auschwitz Project which included taking a trip to both Auschwitz One and Birkenau. I participated in a follow-up seminar, listening to a survivor's testimony and after arranged 'Next Steps' in order to pass on what I learned. I wrote an article for my school website and led an assembly detailing my experience and encouraging others to experience Auschwitz and to take part in the scheme. As a result, I am an official HET Holocaust Ambassador and I intend to pursue this further, by becoming a regional ambassador in the future. Recently, I enrolled in an online Open University Course titled 'The Holocaust' examining the historiographical debate surrounding the Holocaust, if it is unique and why it happened as and when it did. As a result, my History coursework is on the functionalist intentionalist debate. I was lucky to be given the opportunity to attend a series of university lectures at Warwick University surrounding the subject of the impacts of the Gestapo in Nazi Germany, and the economic crisis from 1924 onwards and how it led to the rise of Hitler. This has given me first-hand experience of lectures and the format of taking notes, which will prove invaluable when studying. Furthermore, I engaged in a guided battlefield tour of the Somme, Ypres and Arras, further cementing my interest in history and helping to improve my wider understanding and knowledge of the First World War by visiting sights first hand, hearing moving primary and contemporary sources, illustrating the horrors of war.

After being a member of Girl Guiding for 7 years, I was the first Girl Guide in the West Midlands to achieve the Mercia Star for showing courage, bravery and initiative in an emergency involving a neighbour. I then went on to become a member of Senior Section as a Young Leader to my local Rainbow group. This proves my responsibility and ability to cope well under pressure. During year 11, I was awarded the prestigious title of Head Girl. The role included leading whole school assemblies, meeting school governors and the local Mayor. I also led the Junior Leadership Team, a whole school council meaning that I have hands-on experience in leadership and helping to improve communication and teamwork skills which are essential for university life. I aspire to become either a teacher of History or take my studies to a higher level
