Shamim - Dorney - School English

Methodology

My name is Shamim Michael Gammage. I am 25 and a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin. I am currently reading for an MSc in Economic & Social History at Balliol College, Oxford.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I specialise in teaching History from Key Stage 3 through to degree level. I also teach a selection of other A-level courses and give lessons on essay writing and examination technique. In addition, I am an experienced proof reader.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Earlier this year I graduated with an upper first and a gold medal in History from Trinity College, Dublin. I specialised in modern history (19th & 20th century) with an emphasis on Europe and America. My final year dissertation examined aspects U.S. foreign policy in Latin America during the Cold War and is currently being prepared for publication in a historical journal. I have three A-levels (History, Psychology and Geography) and ten GCSEs.

- How much do you charge?

If you cannot afford my rate because you are out of work or living on a state income, I will consider lowering my hourly rate. Each case will be judged on an individual basis.

I offer discounts for group lessons and also for lessons booked in bulk. There may be some charge for travel if you are located outside the local area.

- Where do you teach?

I teach both at home, and in students' homes; whichever is most convenient. I am located in North Maidenhead (close to Cookham) and will teach in Maidenhead, Marlow, Cookham and Bourne End.

- When are you available?

I am available evenings and weekends. I am often available outside these times, please get in touch if you have any particular requirements.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Ages 5 - 95

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have a variety of teaching experience on both a formal and informal basis. I have developed a method of teaching A-level and GCSE History which has had led to a great deal of success at both these levels. Some of my students have even continued to use this system through to degree level with very positive results.

I am an experienced proofreader and I have worked on many postgraduate and undergraduate dissertations. I also offer essay writing workshops to students of all ages.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

No
