Hi, I'm Owen, a graduate of Durham University with a First Class Honours in History, of the Graduate Diploma in Law at City, University of London, and a student of the University of Cambridge in Political Thought and Intellectual History.


Having tutored for five years, I've developed a system of ensuring that my students and I get the best out of our sessions. Since GCSEs and A Levels, I've been focussing on perfecting essay-writing techniques, and I'm really excited to share with you how to develop the best argument in the demanding limits of an essay. Having studied English, History, Geography, Government and Politics, and Economics at A Level, and Law currently, I've got a breadth of academic experience.


Humanities subjects are where my passion lies. It's incredibly exciting and rewarding to study subjects that reveal so much about the world in which we live today and help provide a myriad of transferable skills that can be applied later in life; forming arguments, concise writing, applying a variety of evidence and presenting your work are talents that we can hone in these subjects and carry into employment and the wider world.


I'm incredibly personable and dedicated, and I would love to work with you, to help you develop your academic skills. I look forward to speaking with you!

Having previously run my own successful tuition company, I know the key factors that tutors can do to help students achieve their very best potential. My Online Lessons will work as a springboard for independent learning and critical thinking around your chosen subject.


First, I'd like to get a sense of where you struggle in learning and applying your learning, and then I will create and deliver specified lessons to your demands. Based around ten or more questions per lesson, we will discuss the key sources, interpretations, and the ways that you can do your very best in assessed work. If, for example, you struggle with essay writing, I'll tailor our lessons so that we help develop your skills in presenting your arguments. If you don't fully understand the contemporary sources and evidence, we'll be able to focus on that instead. However, every lesson will include a full outline of each topic, and how to apply this in assessment.


I'll help support you achieve your goals through being a friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated tutor. I fully believe that every person learns and develops in completely different ways, and by getting to know you and your demands, I'll make sure that your needs are met. We'll work on a typical lesson in class, and I'll set a weekly homework of essays or past exam papers, so that you have a coherent understanding of each topic and where you need to work further going into the future.
