About me

Hey, I'm Jacq. I'm a History and Politics graduate from the University of Oxford. I teach History at A-Level and GCSE, and I'm also able to teach Maths at GCSE (I got an A* in Maths at A-Level). I've always been interested in what has happened/what is happening in the world, and how it all links together. After all, knowledge is power. While I am new to tutoring, I know exactly what needs to be done. I've learnt a lot of stuff at school and university, and most importantly I've learn the easiest, most efficient, and most effective way to go about studying. Everything starts off as a confusing problem, but it can quickly and easily be transformed into a simple and understandable solution. With me, I promise you'll soon learn how to turn your problems into solutions too. Hey, I'm Jacq. I'm a History and Politics graduate from the University of Oxford.

About my sessions

I intend for my sessions to be quite flexible depending on your needs, but I always carry the same philosophy of taking a very clear and concise approach when it comes to studying. It should look something like this: For History: 1) You give me the topic you want to go over. 2) Each session we'll go through the units/modules of the topic and look at the key figures, dates, events, themes, arguments, etc. 3) We'll use a variety of techniques like bullet points, flow charts, timelines, mind-maps, etc., in order to aid your understanding. 4) We'll do some practise multiple-choice quizzes to test your knowledge, as well as some longer essay questions to test your exam skills. For Maths: 1) You give me the topic you want to go over. 2) Each session we'll go through the units/modules of the topic and work through problems together on the interactive whiteboard. 3) We'll do some practise exam questions together to test your knowledge and application skills.

Questions Jacq has answered

What is the difference between voluntarist, structuralist and post-structuralist?

These labels are often used to describe certain types of theories adopted by historians, but what do they actually mean?

Voluntarist: These approaches stress the importance of individual agency. The cause of an event is the actions taken by the participants themselves. E.g. the Russian Revolution 1917 was caused by the actions of Lenin and the Bolshevik Party

 

Structuralist: These approaches stress the importance of the larger structure and environment behind the individuals. The cause of an event is the conditions of the pre-existing structure. E.g. the Russian Revolution 1917 was caused by the weakened state apparatus following the Russian army's disastrous performance in WW1, which in turn allowed the Bolsheviks to seize control.

 

Post-structuralist: These approaches stress the importance of abstract ideas and beliefs (rather than concrete structures) and how these have been used to shape history. The cause of an event is the ideology behind it. E.g. the Russian Revolution 1917 was caused by the rise of the ability of Bolshevik Communism to connect with the Russian people over the pre-existing Tsarist absolutist ideology.
