About me

Hi, my name is Tom


I am currently at the University of Exeter where I am studying for a BA in History whilst being a part of the University Hockey club and the Quiz society.


At school my favourite subject was always History so it was an easy decision to continue. Helping people achieve their goals is what tutoring is about and I hope to help as many people as possible. Whilst having good experience of A Level and personal statements, I have a good grasp of the GCSE and 13+ requirements. Working with younger students can have its downfalls, but with two younger brothers who are at GCSE and 13+ stages I believe I have the prerequisites to deliver success.


Tutoring is about finding the individual's best way to learn, as everyone is different. I hope to be able to adapt to any pupils, so with that I hope to see you soon.

About my sessions

A Level:

Maths - Approached thematically and focussing on learning how to tackle different sorts of questions with weekly problem sets to measure progress and understanding

History - Two parts to focus on, sources and essays and here I have particular strength in: British Empire:1857-1965, Weimar Germany, The Cold War: 1945-1980 and America since 1945.


GCSE:

Sciences - Adhering to a revision guide style of approach where the fundamental knowledge required will be reinforced, as understanding is better than just memorising

French - Looking at ways to either improve basics or building on this and looking at advanced structures to really push up through the grade boundaries

Maths and History similar to above.


13+:

French/Latin - Here the languages are all about nailing down fundamentals that enable you to improve writing and reading and with French, also the listening and speaking.

What are the rules for forming the passe compose/perfect tense using avoir and etre?

Past participles generally follow a simple rule.For verbs ending in -er, the past participle is made by adding the suffix to the root:parler (to speak) - parlé dessiner (to draw) - dessiné tomber (to fall) - tombéFor verbs ending in -ir, the past participle is made by adding the suffix -ito the root:choisir (to choose) - choisfinir (to finish) - finpâlir (to become pale) - pâliFor verbs ending in -re, the past participle is made by adding the suffix -uto the root:descendre (to go down) - descendurendre (to return) - rendfendre (to split) - fenduThere are, of course, exceptions to this. Here are a few of the most common irregular past participles:devoir (to have to) - avoir (to have) - eupouvoir (to be able to) - pufaire (to do/make) - faitsavoir (to know) - suconnaître (to know) - connu voir (to see) - vuboire (to drink) - buvouloir (to want) - vouluPast participles generally follow a simple rule.For verbs ending in -er, the past participle is made by adding the suffix to the root:parler (to speak) - parlé dessiner (to draw) - dessiné tomber (to fall) - tombéFor verbs ending in -ir, the past participle is made by adding the suffix -ito the root:choisir (to choose) - choisfinir (to finish) - finpâlir (to become pale) - pâliFor verbs ending in -re, the past participle is made by adding the suffix -uto the root:descendre (to go down) - descendurendre (to return) - rendfendre (to split) - fenduThere are, of course, exceptions to this.
