MA Qualified History Tutor, with Excellency in AS and A2 History. Specialising in Essays and Sources

Methodology

My teaching method is small number of groups or individual one of one tuitioning as I believe that smaller numbers allow mass knowledge to be restored at a higher level than larger groups where focus can often lack in understanding and providing full assistance to the students as a tutor

Experience

I am a recent MA graduate in History (2015) and have previously taught tutoring for free for students and friends alike. I am a passionate student of knowledge and aim to provide that for every student that is taught by me.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £22/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £120
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £260

Details

History Lessons vary depending on A-levels or GCSE's

GCSE: £22 per hour.

AS -Levels - £28 per hour.

A-Levels - £30 per hour

Exam and Essay prices vary upon discussion and length of time you require the service as well as the intensity and duration of the period you require that assistance for. e.g. exam prep or coursework deadline.

I do not charge for cancellations as long as we have enough notice period (24 hours).

I am a creative and a freelancer in my field so I can be open to flexibility as well as teaching in the evenings.

I would highly recommend Minnie! I have always been a bit sceptical about paying a tutor to help me but its truly the best decision I have ever made! Minnie is super friendly, I am very pleased with how thorough and knowledgeable she is. She covers a broad range of topics, in a clear and attentive manner, which has helped me immensely. Her lessons are always enjoyable and engaging. She understands my learning needs and focuses lessons accordingly. She has helped me become more confident and I am ready to go out there to smash those exams thanks to her! Thank you so much Minnie for all your efforts, really appreciate all your hard work!

I know Minnie as one of my most trustworthy and dependable friends, and would highly recommend her as a tutor. Our conversations are deep, philosophical and explorative, often spent on academic debate of History, Theology, and all topics. With her intelligence, subject-knowledge, and natural will to give and exchange knowledge, she is a very natural tutor.

Minnie is one of the most intelligent, kind and well spoken individual i have ever met. Her presence is full of warmth and joy and her knowledge about life in general and current affairs is highly commendable and inspiring. I find myself as a friend learning a lot from her even during general catch-ups so i can be assured about her extremely high calibre as a teacher. She will teach with all her heart and a charming smile. Highly recommended!

I was having really hard time dealing with my work and personal life, wasn't able to focus on how to deal with situations to make the daily life more fruitful and joyful. I got connected to Minnie few months back, Life coaching sessions with her helped me alott, she took note of everything in a very natural way and it worked out for me very well. I would recommend her Life coaching for sure as she's really good in this!!

Minnie is a great tutor. She is trustworthy and always keeps the needs of the student in mind. She always goes the extra mile and explains things from different angles so that true understanding takes place instead of just a memorisation of text. I highly recommend her services, especially for people who struggle to learn. Minnie is highly intuitive and caters for all learning types.

Minnie is excellent in bringing out precise meaning to a content by putting all the pieces together thus creating a content most meaningful . She goes to the depth of topic and tries to understand it best way possible. Her patience and her zeal deserves very important place in helping me compile my thesis which was a quite intense work for me to handle alone.

Will Always adore her for it...
