Degree: History (Bachelors) - Warwick University
I am a recent graduate from the University of Warwick where I studied History. I have a passion for the humanities and writing in general. I love the archival and research side to my course, and in 2014 joined my local village in Kent in a large archaeological dig that uncovered an array of Anglo-Saxon and bronze Age artefacts! Active engagement with a subject is important to me and I believe that the more you enjoy it the easier it becomes to learn about. In addition, I have experience teaching children abroad as I volunteered in India last year teaching Maths and English to primary school children. As I am graduating from University, I hope to offer my knowledge to others as a way of both helping them in their education and also enjoying the study of History and writing beyond my own studies.
The sessions will be completely guided by you. Any issues that you have found I will address, and most importantly try and make it enjoyable! I can help with understanding, planning, source analysis and writing style and anything else that you need help with. Essentially I am here to answer any questions or concerns that you have.
If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and what you need help with.

Sources play a vital role in the study of History. It is important to know how to engage with the sources correctly and use them appropriately in an answer. The three main things to remember are:
1) What is the source saying? before anything else, look at the source itself and try and work out what exactly it is depicting/talking about. Often there is an accompanying text which will give an overview of what the source is about
2) What ideas can be taken from the source? with a wider knowledge of the History course, themes may appear that you can discuss in a bit more detail. Even if you dont fully understand what is happening in the source, try and pick something out that you can relate back to aspects of the course
3) Be detailed. It is often hard to keep to the time limit in an exam and also get everything down that you want to write. The best answers are always concise - not necessarily lots of information but always relevant to the content of the source - quality over quantity!see more
