About me

I'm Ben and I study History at Durham University. I am an experienced tutor, with a year of experience - both on MyTutor, and as a tutor for the university.


I enjoy studying a diverse range of historical time periods, from Medieval Europe, Tudor and Stuart Britain, Revolutionary and Soviet Russia and Weimer and Nazi Dictatorship. I am well read on these topics and I have particularly thrived whilst studying these periods at university level. In my spare time, I love to...

I'm Ben and I study History at Durham University. I am an experienced tutor, with a year of experience - both on MyTutor, and as a tutor for the university.


I enjoy studying a diverse range of historical time periods, from Medieval Europe, Tudor and Stuart Britain, Revolutionary and Soviet Russia and Weimer and Nazi Dictatorship. I am well read on these topics and I have particularly thrived whilst studying these periods at university level. In my spare time, I love to read about the processes of revolutions and the formulation of dictatorships.


I studied History, Geography and Politics A-Levels, and was awarded top grades. After studying three essay based subjects, I can bring a wealth of content knowledge, exam technique and essay writing skills to guide you through your studies. Together, we can achieve top grades.


For me, history comes alive when I have a fun and engaging teacher, and that is what I aim to offer! I look forward to meeting you!

About my sessions

My sessions are split into three enjoyable sections. Firstly, the starter activity will recap and re-consolidate knowledge with a fun game. These are designed to build confidence and engage my students.


The main section of my lesson is usually geared towards learning new content and working through the areas that my students are struggling with - revision tips, exam technique and essay writing are common tasks we work through.

My sessions are split into three enjoyable sections. Firstly, the starter activity will recap and re-consolidate knowledge with a fun game. These are designed to build confidence and engage my students.


The main section of my lesson is usually geared towards learning new content and working through the areas that my students are struggling with - revision tips, exam technique and essay writing are common tasks we work through.


For the plenary section, using the knowledge learnt in the lesson I set a relevant exam question, either from the past papers or a question formulated myself. This ensures that the knowledge is confidently learnt and committed to long-term memory.


Depending on my students commitments outside of my lessons, I sometimes set essay questions for my students and mark them, providing detailed feedback.
