Undergraduate student of history, experienced tutor, able to tutor in London in holidays or Durham during term (also via Skype)

Methodology

I would look to engage with my students in an informal discussion style of lesson.
We would examine primary sources and and analyse their importance as well as talking about how to understand historical narratives.
In this way the student's confidence will improve as well as developing their knowledge and skills.
The more informal style of lesson is also intended to make sure they enjoy the lessons.

Experience

I've worked and volunteered at several schools/ educational programs where I have taught students of all ages. I have also been a tutor for students struggling who were at my school. I also help run the Durham University Classics Society and act as the academic affairs officer where I help students with their work.
