About me

Hi, I’m Izzy, a second year Ancient History student at the University of Bristol. There are many reasons why I chose to do this degree in particular, mostly because I find it is a multi-disciplinary subject combining facets of History, English and Linguistics amongst others.

Hi, I’m Izzy, a second year Ancient History student at the University of Bristol. There are many reasons why I chose to do this degree in particular, mostly because I find it is a multi-disciplinary subject combining facets of History, English and Linguistics amongst others.

 

I offer tutoring in English, History and Spanish in addition to general skills such as essay writing and studying techniques for all levels from beginner to advanced. I have experience teaching and tutoring both at home and abroad, having taught English and Spanish for a short time at a specialist school in Lima, Peru and having been part of my school's GCSE/A Level mentoring/buddy scheme throughout sixth form.

 

Along the way I have learnt many things about studying and exams, perhaps most importantly the value of truly understanding the subject-matter as opposed to simply memorising dates and facts. This is what I aim to help you to achieve – to appreciate and learn from past mistakes and to not fear unknown questions in exams because you truly understand the topic.

 

Spanish: I was lucky to be born into a Peruvian Spanish-speaking family and as such, am fluent in the language. I subsequently chose to study it academically through to A Level and am therefore able to teach the finer points of grammar with a wider contextual understanding of the culture.

About my sessions

The structure of the sessions will vary depending on your specific aims and goals are. We will begin by clarifying this, identifying where you are now, what you are struggling with and where you want to be. Following this, I will build a plan of action to achieve these goals. This may include (but is not limited to); studying and exam techniques, helping with your understanding of specific subject content, essay structuring and time management (both generally and in an essay context).

The structure of the sessions will vary depending on your specific aims and goals are. We will begin by clarifying this, identifying where you are now, what you are struggling with and where you want to be. Following this, I will build a plan of action to achieve these goals. This may include (but is not limited to); studying and exam techniques, helping with your understanding of specific subject content, essay structuring and time management (both generally and in an essay context).

As such I would be happy to go over past written material such as any essays you may have struggled with to learn from these previous examples. I am also willing to help with current homework, which we can go through together.

 

Beyond simply memorising figures, dates or quotations, I aim to equip you with a true understanding of the subject. It is the articulation of these facts, their context and their relevance that generates marks. Essay writing, exam technique and language learning can be broken down into simple steps and I would love to help you learn this at all levels.

 

My goal is to increase your confidence, relieve the pressure of exams and coursework and to help you approach your exams with a positive attitude, with the knowledge that you know and understand the subject and will achieve your maximum potential.
