About me

Hi! I'm Hannah, I am currently studying History and French at University College London and Sorbonne IV in Paris, having graduated from the IB Diploma in 2015. I love tutoring because I find it to be very rewarding work. Watching my students progress in their understanding and reach their targets is a fantastic job to have!

My passion for History means that I have a knowledge of many different periods, tutoring GCSE and IB higher/standard level History. I thoroughly enjoyed my IB experience, and therefore tailor my IB lessons to the specific IB structure and exam style. Tutorials for 'Theory of Knowledge' or 'Extended Essay' can also be provided. As a dual nationality German, who studied IBH German, I also provide GCSE German tuition. I have experience tutoring GCSE Biology and GCSE English Literature of any exam board.

I have worked for IB specific tutoring courses, and I am also experienced at working with students who struggle to concentrate in the typical classroom environment. Previously, I have volunteered with a learning disabilities charity, meaning I am capable of working with children of all ages/educational needs.

Any questions? Send me a WebMail or book a Meet the Tutor Session. I look forward to meeting you

Her classes told me how to approach the unique IB History questions. Knowing the tips and points that I should focus on, I found much easier to write an essay!

Hannah recently helped me, a failing German student with German IGCSE End of Year exams for Year 10. She was a great help with all of the 4 German exams I had and without her a U been the grade I would have walked home with. She has past papers to hand and going over them was extremely useful, preparing for the exam day, along with going through the spec and anything else I wanted to go over. She does not overcomplicate things like so many other teachers and tutors do and I am sure if I need any other tutoring in German, I will come straight back to her! Haroon (German IGCSE Student)

Questions Hannah has answered

How do I analyse 'character' in my exam?

Character analysis is an essential skill used in all English Literature GCSE exams. The ways that a character is presented in a text, their importance to the overall meaning and their interactions with other characters are all useful ways to start interpreting and answering your exam question. You must always use specific textual references and quotes from the text where possible to support your answer.  

To illustrate this, I will use the example of a 'Lady Macbeth' character analysis: (Macbeth is studied with AQA/OCR/Edexcel)

Lady Macbeth is presented from the outset as a ruthless, ambitious and beguiling character. The first time she speaks in the play we see that she will not falter until her husband sits on the throne, and that devious and foul acts would not sit heavily on her conscience. She says in Act 1, scene 5 that she believes her husband is, "too full o' th' milk of human kindness" and that she wants to, "pour my spirits in thine ear". This is an example of foreshadowing because we are given an indication of the ways she will manipulate her husband to do as she would, in order to achieve her ambition. Not only are we immediately given an understanding of her merciless spirit, but a contrast between her character and that of her husband. This juxtaposition is important not only in our understanding of Lady Macbeth, as Macbeth’s nature emphasizes her immorality, but also in our understanding of Macbeth himself, as we can foresee how his weakness will allow him to be easily influenced by his wife. This is one way in which we can map out the interactions between characters. The immorality presented by Shakespeare in Lady Macbeth’s character, and the contrast between her own reaction to murder and Macbeth’s reaction, can teach us important lessons about the impacts of our actions and the corrupting power of unchecked ambition. This was Shakespeare’s ultimate goal when creating the character of Lady Macbeth, as he wanted an audience to be shocked by her actions. Lady Macbeth provides a cautionary tale showing what can happen to ‘king killers’; written during the tumultuous reign of James I, this play can be seen as a lesson showing what happens when we override the ‘divine right of kings’ a belief Shakespeare wanted to install in his audience. Connecting your answer to the context that the author was writing in will allow students to reach the criteria for the top grades.
