Degree: PhD History (Doctorate) - Bristol University
Hi, I’m Chris, a History PhD student at Bristol University, having previously studied at Southampton and Warwick.
I have an enduring interest in education and the humanities, and hope to pass this on in my tutorials.
In addition to my subject specific knowledge, I also have extensive tutoring experience, having been involved in running exam skills workshops at both school and university. These skills are important in both writing based subjects and Biology, and will form a key part of my GCSE and A-level lessons.
I am happy to assist in teaching difficult concepts, writing style help, or exam preparation in History and Politics (GCSE and A-level) and English and Biology (GCSE). I am keen to let the student guide the focus of the session, and I will prepare accordingly to these needs.
Don’t hesitate to contact me through 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' (both through this website).
I hope to hear from you soon!

At GCSE level, competent engagement with the historical background and a decent argument are sufficient to secure a good grade.
At A-level, the phrasing and structure of the essay becomes more critical, requiring each paragraph to work towards building the overall outlook of the piece. It will also require the meshing of the source material (if a source based essay), and not simple linear engagement. Use of some historiographical opinion can also elevate the essay to the higher grades.
Mitosis and meiosis refer to the way cells reproduce.
Mitosis sees the cell divide in two, forming two genetically identical diploid cells. The reproduction of cells means mitosis is used by the body for growth and repair. A good way to remember how many cells mitosis produces is the 'to' part in the middle - miTWOsis.
Meiosis produces four haploid cells, genetically different from each other and the parent cell. This occurs over two rounds of division. The random assortment of chromosomes through the crossing of DNA during the division produces a diverse genetic diversity within these cells - which become gametes for sexual reproduction.see more
The terms left and right wing refer to the political spectrum, usually expressed in terms of a line with the far left and one end, the far right at the other, and the centre in the middle.
In British politics, the Labour party are considered centre-left, with the Conservatives correspondingly centre-right. The Liberal Democrats occupy the centre, while UKIP are further right, and the Green party further left.
The left and right wings differ on many things, but most importantly on the role of the state. The left believes the government should play an active role in regulating the economy and providing welfare (NHS, benefits). The right support a smaller state, with a greater role for the free market and business.
