Second year Politics and Spanish student offering History lessons up to A Level

Methodology

What worked for me during my studies were things like making quizzes in particular, and making memes or humour out of things I needed to learn. Essentially just relating it in my own words, experiences, and way of thinking. I would help students think about the periods they are studying in ways that make them more relatable and funny (or at least as much as some of the grimmer bits would allow).

Experience

For my History A Level I studied Germany 1871-1990, Russia 1894-1924, and Britain 1625-1701. For my GCSE I studied the history of medicine and Germany from the First up to the start of the Second World War. Both were with Edexcel. I attained a B and an A respectively.
