Philip - Wareham - School English

Methodology

I am a highly specialised tutor with 2 years experience of teaching in Higher Education.

PhD from the University of Exeter.

History; English Literature; University Entrance.

I have a PhD in History from the University of Exeter, as well as an MPhil in Modern European History from the University of Cambridge. I also hold a first-class BA (Hons) in History from the University of Exeter.

Preliminary Trial Lesson available at half price.

£28-60 per hour (dependent on level and subject).

- Where do you teach?

I live near Wareham in Dorset. I am willing to travel to students' homes to teach up to 20 miles from my home (Dorchester/Weymouth; Blandford; Poole/Wimborne; all places in between).

I can be flexible about my teaching hours.

All weekdays: 9am-7pm.

Saturday/Sunday morning, afternoons and evenings as well on request.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

11-25 years old; students of all learning requirements.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE; A-Level; Degree Level (History).

- 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.

Background

- 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?

No.
