Degree: MA French and History of Art (Bachelors) - Edinburgh University
Hello! I'm a final year undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh, where I read French and History of Art.
Our initial session will be an assessment to see what your strengths and weaknesses are, and a discussion about what you need us to cover. I'll then organise a list of things we need to go over together, and we'll spend our lessons going through themt. We will practice using past papers, allowing you to get comfortable with the exam format, as well as to see your progress.
For English and History, I'll focus mainly on how to construct your essays well, and how to develop a more concise and elegant writing style that will help you put your arguments across more efficiently. I also have a variety of memory techniques to use for help with memorising historical dates and names, which I will share with you.
The areas that I can offer the most help with are:
- 20th century European history (with particular emphasis on WWI and WWII)
- The French Revolution
- The Russian Revolution
- 20th century China (up until 1976)
- The USA in the 1920s and 1930s
- The Korean and Vietnam wars
If there are any other areas you would like to cover, that is absolutely fine. (If you give me notice I'll be able to go over them in preparation for our sessions.)
For English, I think it would be to analyse texts and poetry during the sessions, beneficial as well as practicing past papers and going over essays together, so that you're left with skills that will enable you to do this in the exam.
I've just returned from a year abroad at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, so I've got a lot of experience with learning and speaking in French. Whilst I was there, I received firsts in all of my French language exams during the course of the year. Our sessions will be a mixture of going over grammar, practicing your speaking and listening skills, and going over essays together to assess your writing skills.
