I am a History student at the University of York. From a young age I have always been fascinated by the past- Conflict, Betrayal, Kings and Queens. It is this passion that I hope to instil in others.
I am patient and approachable. I have previously helped out in a after school club so I know how to interact with children of all ages.
All of my sessions are tailored specifically to the students needs, whether that is going over exam technique or finding revision techniques that work for you.
Having studied History at both GCSE and A Level I have tried many different techniques. This means that if one method isn't working for you then we can try another and continue to do this until we find one that does.
I hope to make the sessions both informative and fun, this will help you to get the most of the sessions because hopefully you will enjoy them and want to learn!
If you have any questions then you can contact me by sending me a 'Webmail' or by booking a 'Meet the Tutor Session'. Remember to tell me what exam board you are taking and what you are struggling with/would like to cover in the sessions.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Firstly, you need to write a strong introduction. This should include your thesis statement along with a brief outline of the main points of your essay. Your introduction should be structured so as to indicate to the examiner what your conclusion will be- this shows that you've planned your essay.
Next, you should aim for 3-4 paragraphs in the body of your essay. Each paragraph should start with a topic sentence and include a main point of your essay. Topic sentences ensure that your argument is focused and analytical because you are constantly reffering back to the essay question. In each paragraph you must PEE- make your Point and then Explain it by providing relevent Evidence. You should end each paragraph with a mini conclusion which should include a link to your next paragraph/point.
Lastly, you need a conclusion. The conclusion should include a brief summary of the most important points you have made, making sure that points from both side of the argument are showcased. You should also include your opinion in your conclusion, this shouldn't come as a surprise to the exmainer as the introduction and body of the essay should make it clear what you deem to be the most important factors/arugument.see more
