Hello! My name is Stephanie and I just graduated with a First Class Honours degree in History and English Literature a I am an approachable, patient and friendly person.

I have been working with MyTutor for three years, tutoring A Level Government and Politics and GCSE History and English and providing help with personal statements. Also, I have experience working as a classroom assistant in a primary school in the UK and have also taught abroad for nine months , which has taught me to be creative and dynamic in my teaching.


I am enthusiastic about learning and love having the opportunity to teach subjects that I am passionate about. I have worked with students of all abilities, and know that students who feel encouraged and supported are more likely to enjoy and engage more with the sessions, furthering their progress. I aim not only to help students achieve high grades, but to foster a love of the subject they are studying.


I also enjoy helping students to craft their personal statements for university applications and to prepare for university entrance tests such as HAT and ELAT. I know how difficult this process can be, and can use my experience to help students prepare thoroughly and navigate this process. My expertise is in helping students to apply for History and English, however I also have experience applying other subjects. I prepared for the ELAT for several years and achieved high marks in the HAT.

About my sessions

I help my students to gain more confidence in their subject, so that they can achieve your academic goals and reach their full potential.

 I build tutoring sessions around the individual learning style of each student as everyone learns in a different way! I plan my sessions through collaboration with my students, so that we can focus on the areas they feel they need more help and get personalised support. I am happy to explain concepts to my students in a variety of creative ways.

 I build tutoring sessions around the individual learning style of each student as everyone learns in a different way! I plan my sessions through collaboration with my students, so that we can focus on the areas they feel they need more help and get personalised support. I am happy to explain concepts to my students in a variety of creative ways.


Initially, I would conduct an assessment to see the level the student is currently working at, and continue to assess through verbal and written exercises every few weeks to check progress levels and make any necessary changes.


The key to exam success is often the ability to apply your knowledge to the type of questions asked. I regularly go over practice questions with students and annotate past papers to help my students gain confidence in the structure, wording and content of each question type. I help students produce plans, set timed practice exercises and analyse model answers. To assist with this, I make use of mark schemes and examiners reports to show how to move into the highest bands and the common pitfalls that students make in their exams.

A good session today, now I know I need to find more examples that could be used for a few topics and that I have to write a link back sentence after the example to show that the example answers the question given.
