- Do you have a personal message for students?
Unlike many older tutors I'm relatively young and innovative, and remember what it was like to work towards GCSEs, A-Levels and my first degree. I am passionate about History and English Literature, and would welcome the chance to bring the same enjoyment of the subject to young learners. I am enthusiastic about utilising the research skills I have gained to assist others in developing their knowledge of History and English Literature, as well as their ability to understand and write about historical subjects.
- What kind of experience do you have?
Over the course of my PhD, I taught first-year undergraduate students on two core modules over two academic years. The two modules that I taught focused on core historical skills, methodology and concepts, and would be well applied to tutoring students working towards GCSE or A-Level qualifications. As an academic historian, I have an additional knowledge of the ideas and practice of history that many tutors might lack.
Throughout my seminars, I split students into smaller working groups so to explain topics in more depth, as well as giving individual feedback tailored to the student in question. I utilised a variety of resources to do so, including visual media and short activities to enhance understanding.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
