About me

My name is Matilda and I am a second-year history student at Oxford. My degree is 'Ancient and Modern History', and I specialise in ancient Greek and Roman and medieval European histories. I am very confident with Tudor history, and France in 16th and 17th centuries. I am so pleased that I chose to study history - I love all aspects of my course. It is intriguing to learn about different past societies and cultures (as well as our own), and enter into stimulating discussions with my t...

My name is Matilda and I am a second-year history student at Oxford. My degree is 'Ancient and Modern History', and I specialise in ancient Greek and Roman and medieval European histories. I am very confident with Tudor history, and France in 16th and 17th centuries. I am so pleased that I chose to study history - I love all aspects of my course. It is intriguing to learn about different past societies and cultures (as well as our own), and enter into stimulating discussions with my tutors. My other A levels were in English Literature, French and Dance, and these remain important to me. As well as doing extra French lessons at university, I also do plenty of drama and dance. I am sporty and play waterpolo for the university and am President of my college's history society.

I took the HAT to get into Oxford, and would love to help other students in their applications, with personal statements, HAT preparation, and practice interviews. I am very keen to tutor students in history, to encourage them and hopefully help them to love the subject as much as I do. I can also tutor English language and literature students at GCSE level, and could certainly give advice and help at an A level standard. I have a lot of exam experience and tips to pass on. Revision can seem hard, but once you have found a method for you, it becomes so much better.

About my sessions

I am flexible in my tutoring style, and will discuss with students what they feel their preferred method of learning is. I will begin with discussing the work the student has been set or would like to improve on and where the difficulties lie. This allows us to set an aim for each session, and build up confidence to start with, having identified the problem and how we can overcome it. Sessions will usually start with looking at the content of the topic, especially working on interpretations a...

I am flexible in my tutoring style, and will discuss with students what they feel their preferred method of learning is. I will begin with discussing the work the student has been set or would like to improve on and where the difficulties lie. This allows us to set an aim for each session, and build up confidence to start with, having identified the problem and how we can overcome it. Sessions will usually start with looking at the content of the topic, especially working on interpretations and historical arguments and debates. Then, it is useful to look at different approaches to questions, bringing in technique and style. As a sort of 'brain break,' I would like to use various visual sources, including looking at videos, photos, and paintings etc. These can be used as stimuli for discussion, provide good revision techniques, and give the student a short rest within the session.To end the session, I think it is useful and important to look at past paper questions, or a classroom question, and go through this step by step. In this way, I can make sure there is a sense of achievement at the end of each session, using what we have learned and putting it into practice. I used a real variety of revision techniques from GCSE's to University level exams. Colour, repetition and speaking out loud are some of the things which worked well for me, and I look forward to discussing and working on different techniques with students.
