About me

Hello! My name is Prudence and I'm a final year History student at Durham University. I've been passionate about history from a young age and I want others to become confident enough to share this passion too.

Hello! My name is Prudence and I'm a final year History student at Durham University. I've been passionate about history from a young age and I want others to become confident enough to share this passion too. Having previously participated in mentoring schemes before university I have experience in helping a wide variety of students in a mixture of subjects alongside UCAS application support.


At university I have primarily focused on Soviet and Eastern European history, which is ideal for those studying the Cold War at either GCSE or IB. However, I have also covered a range of topics including Medieval, African and 19th Century American minority experiences, many of which are relevant to current exam paper topics.


I also have personal experience with studying with dyslexia and learning how to work with it instead of trying to fight against it. This ensures my teaching methods are inclusive of the different approaches students may have to learning and how to use their perceived weaknesses as strengths.


I am always excited to see how others approach history and would love to help students gain the confidence to express their ideas in more complex ways and begin to enjoy history.

About my sessions

My main aim in sessions is to help improve confidence and develop a variety of historical skills in a relaxed and flexible way. Sessions will differ slightly for each student as they will be tailored to what the student feels they need the most help with, for example maybe exam technique or source analysis.

My main aim in sessions is to help improve confidence and develop a variety of historical skills in a relaxed and flexible way. Sessions will differ slightly for each student as they will be tailored to what the student feels they need the most help with, for example maybe exam technique or source analysis.


Each session will begin with a short discussion exploring what the student feels they need to improve on. Then there will be an activity which will help them see how much they already know about the topic and boost confidence. We will then discuss how this knowledge can be improved and expressed clearly, bringing in model essay plans and memory techniques. This will then be followed up with going through an essay question together to take what the student already knows and combining it with what they've learnt through discussion to create a plan they can revise from. This ensures that students can see within one session how easily improvements can be made to boost their marks. At the end of a session there will be time for extra questions and recap, alongside working out what topic the next session should be on.


This structure ensures that there is a flow to the session to aid in progression, however there is plenty of flexibility in terms of activities and approaches to help with different styles of learning.

Everything was great, if I give five stars it means that I had no comments on the session.

Prudence reviewed the essay and returned it with very useful annotations and comments. She was knowledgeable on the topic and gave very helpful feedback on the structure of the essay including suggestions as to how to improve the grade. I would highly recommend Prudence to anyone.
