I have many years experience in teaching and mentoring young army recruits and foreign soldiers as they go through tough training where having patience and empathy is vital (I am not a character from a Hollywood film - there is no shouting in the rain!) We will work together to understand what goals you want/need to achieve whilst making history as engaging as possible. We will discuss the narrative first in order to understand what happened, before asking why.
We will practice exam questions, the use of sources and essay writing in order to get you to an excellent exam standard.
This can be at any level of history study from up to A Level/IB.

Having spent 7 years in the British Army I have plenty of real world experience in geo-politics and the fallout of history. This is coupled with a life long interest in history and a passion for helping others to achieve their goals. I have years of experience in the deep analysis of situations where history and politics are key in the understanding of why actions are playing out as they are.
I would like to continue to inspire and teach all standards of students.
