My teaching method involves asking the student questions about the subject matter and encouraging them to arrive at answers and conclusions with guidance from the tutor; this discourages reliance on a teacher and enables the student to think for themselves. I teach those at secondary school level and use textbooks/specification material as the basis for my lessons.
I have studied history for many years. I achieved the top grade at GCSE and I am predicted to achieve an A* at A-Level in history and politics when I receive my results in August. I have a place at Oxford University to study Ancient and Modern History in September. I have tutored previously in mathematics and am acquainted with helping my peers with their school work in many subjects.
