University Honours History student, giving lessons in history in Glasgow West End

Methodology

Hello :o)
I provide lessons for secondary school pupils, especially at GCSE (or equivalent) level, As and A-Level, and also adults going to night school or college.

I understand how very challenging primary source questions can be, particularly under exam conditions, therefore I focus a lot of my tutoring around this if you need it.
I use a method called SIKC which is broken down as:
Source - (say what you see - what can you see in/around the source; what is the source depicting?)
Inference - (what can you infer from the source? What does the source suggest to you? What could different parts of the source mean?)
own Knowledge - (what from your own knowledge could you use to support your argument; what evidence/examples can you drawn on?)
Conclusion - (write a concise, well informed and memorable conclusion - this is the last thing the examiner will read in your paper, so make it count!)

I also work on the importance of historiography and how to use historians' arguments confidently within our own, without just copying and pasting quotes. As well as how to structure and answer long and short essay questions in history.

I struggled a bit in school and hard to really work for the grades I achieved, and so I understand how frustrating and sometimes upsetting it can be when everyone else understands new concepts and ideas and you don't; or you're confused and need a little bit of extra help. Therefore, I use different ways of explaining things, including visual aids such as pictures and diagrams; using actions, and speaking your answer to find out what you want to say before you write it down (which can help a lot if you were struggling with how to start an answer!), to hopefully suit different people's needs!

I got a U in the first mock exam I did in history, but after a lot of hard work I achieved an A* at GCSE and A-Level.
I have achieved firsts in most of the essays (10/13) and presentations I have written and given in my third year (September 2016 - May 2017)

I am friendly and very supportive, however, I will challenge you if I think that you can progress even more!
But I will try my very best to make the tutoring time as enjoyable and engaging as I can, and that you get what you want from it!

Experience

I have been tutoring with Explore Learning for nearly a year, and tutor 6 pupils from the ages of 4 - 16.
And this year I was awarded with Tutor of The Year 2017!

I have tutored pupils revising for their maths and English literature and language prelims for national 4s 5s, standards and highers, and tutored an extra-circular course on a Friday evening called Entrance Exams. Each of the children which myself and my manager tutored got into their first choice of secondary school. We worked mainly on maths and English, however, there was a lot of essay based worked; techniques on how to plan and answer long and short answer questions.

While at college I used to go into history, art, English and French classes from the years 7 (11 years old) to year 12 (17/18 years old), and every summer when I go home from uni I spend 1 - 2 weeks in history classes of all ages.
When I was in year 13, I spent a whole year with a year 7 history class, and worked my way up to plan and teach some lessons, and so have gained a lot of experience with different pupils and how they like to work, and differing teaching methods!
