Hello there! Thanks for checking out my profile!

About Me:

I am currently studying for my History BA at the University of Exeter. I have a passion for learning and am excited to be able to share that with my tutees. 

I currently tutor in History, Maths and English. No matter the subject, I am committed to bringing out the best in you and bringing you up to the standard that I know you can reach. My History specialist subjects are the Soviet Union, the Tudors, JFK and Hitler's Germany - although I have a knowledge of a vast range of other eras. 

I tutored young children throughout my sixth form experience, taking on private sessions with GCSE Maths students, as well as running my school's History and Politics Society. Through this society, I was able to help students throughout the school in understanding History and Politics more in relation to their classwork, as well as creating a love for the subject outside the classroom. I was also been a young leader at a guide group for around five years and have had experience directing musicals at my school. This has led me to build a rapport with young people, and further my patience and experience with instructing children. 

How the Sessions Work:

I am very keen to help you with whatever you require within the realm of the three subjects I offer. You can lead the sessions. If there is a piece of content you are struggling with, I can help explain it to you in an easy to understand way. Or maybe you are having issues with how to structure a question, or struggling with knowing exactly the examiner wants from you. I am here to help with anything you may want in relation to your studies; there are no rules. 

I am also keen for you to be as engaged with the session as possible. The beauty of this platform is that I can give all my time and attention to you, unlike a teacher in a classroom. Throughout the session we will take little breaks to check you fully understand what we have just covered, before we move onto the next topic. I also like to do little pop quizzes at the beginning of each session, in relation to the one before. This way, if there's anything you've forgotten in the space between the sessions, I can know about it, and really try to help you retain the information. 

What now?

If you like what you see on my profile then please do not hesitate to contact me in the sidebar, making sure to let me know the exam board as well as the subject you are interested in. We will then organize a free meeting to make sure that you are happy with the tutoring service I have to offer before we move onto the first tutorial.

If you have any questions about me or what I can offer then please ask away!

I look forward to hearing from you!!

PS - Although the website does not offer Drama and Theatre Studies tuition specifically, I did study Drama up to A-level and would be happy to help GCSE and A-Level students with their written work if they are studying with AQA. If this interests you then please message me directly under the subject of English, specifying in the message that you want Drama tutoring.

Really good and informative session on some of the changes under Somerset, the quiz at the beginning was fun and a great way of helping me remember key dates and figures. The session was really good at filling in the many gaps I had at the start of the session. Thanks Emily :)

Questions Emily has answered

How do you work out 3/5 of 60?

First, we have to work out one fifth. The easiest way to do this is to divide 60 by five. 60 divided by 5 = 12 (We should know this from our times tables, 5x12=60) We then times the fifth by three to work out three fifths. 12 x 3 = 36 We can then check this by working out two fifths and che...

First, we have to work out one fifth. The easiest way to do this is to divide 60 by five.

60 divided by 5 = 12

(We should know this from our times tables, 5x12=60)

We then times the fifth by three to work out three fifths.

12 x 3 = 36

We can then check this by working out two fifths and checking that both the answers add up to make 60.

We work out two fifths the same way we work out three, timesing by the value for one fifth.

12 x 2 = 24

24 + 36 = 60

So we know that we were correct and our final answer is 

3/5 of 60 = 36.

Why did the Nazis appeal to the German voters?

After the First World War and the Wall Street crash, Germany's economy was at an all time low point. The recession had increased the number of the unemployed significantly and morale was low. 

The Nazi party promised jobs and the protection of workers as well as the suspension of trade unions - appealing to workers and the larger industrialists. They also offered protection from communism, which was a looming threat at the time, as well as a promise that they would create a strong government and economy.

The ability of the Nazis to blame all of Germany's problems on the Jews and other undesirables also appealed to the voters as they trusted the Nazis to solve this issue and overcome the embarrassment of the Treaty of Versailles.
