Hi! I'm Cameron, and I'm currently in my second year studying History & Politics at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. I'm 20 years old and when I’m home from university I live in South East London.


 I'm lucky enough to be studying what I love at one of the best institutions in the country, and it would be my pleasure to help anyone with a similar enthusiasm for history or politics achieve what they want; be that a GCSE, A level or University place. The two subjects I study have such a complimentary relationship that I often think it’s impossible to discuss one without referencing the other. I’d only ever considered Cambridge as a potential choice in my final year of school, and it was thanks to the incredible support I received from my teachers that I managed to achieve my place.


Exams were always tough for me, and I often found that I only really performed well in the subjects I enjoyed. As such, A levels were a challenging but ultimately rewarding experience for me – limiting my study to the four subjects I truly had an interest in gave me high hopes for university. The application process was daunting but really helped me look at both history and politics in completely new ways. Whether you’re applying for Oxbridge or not, taking a subject which genuinely interests you is way more important than consistently getting full marks.

About my sessions

The best way to go about doing well in history or politics is through practicing essay questions. Ultimately, irrespective of if you have a good knowledge of events or concepts, it comes down to how you convey that knowledge through an essay. As such I think learning good essay form is an important way of improving. Cambridge teaches in 1-on-1 sessions known as supervisions, which are great for exploring questions and really tailor the learning to the student.

The best way to go about doing well in history or politics is through practicing essay questions. Ultimately, irrespective of if you have a good knowledge of events or concepts, it comes down to how you convey that knowledge through an essay. As such I think learning good essay form is an important way of improving. Cambridge teaches in 1-on-1 sessions known as supervisions, which are great for exploring questions and really tailor the learning to the student.


As we’re going to be working in a 1-on-1 environment, there is a great deal of scope for broadening understanding beyond the question, so don’t think we’re going to be looking at purely essay technique. In my lessons I’m aiming to build comprehensive essay plans for students – as in doing this we can not only cover the important essay techniques but build on content knowledge.


Saying this, exploring history and politics naturally lends itself to discussion, so lessons covering essay questions will be incredibly discussion based. In writing essay plans we’ll have a great opportunity to discuss points and at the same time learn new things or approach already-covered things from a different angle. The great thing about history and politics is that essays always require an argument, so discussing a question often leads us to more nuanced arguments which are likely to attract an examiners attention!
