About me

About me: ​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. The sessions: 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! What next? 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!

About my sessions

When a parent or student requests a booking, I will ask them exactly what they want to achieve from the session and review that specific area of history including the relevant exam board's specification, the marking criteria, past papers and the relevant content. Sessions are typically split into two sections. The first 40 minutes will consist of revision/learning and in the last 20 minutes we will go over exam techniques and past papers. However, the session is personalised for the individual therefore, if they want to focus solely on exam technique and questions then I will tailor the session to that request. At the end of the session we will discuss what they want to cover next time and I will provide a written report of what we covered, a comment on their progress and what I feel still needs to be improved. Throughout the session, I will ask the student if they understand/ if my explanation is clear enough- if it is not then I will explain using alternative methods until they understand. Furthermore, as a rapport is built, I will be able to tailor the session specifically to them by identifying what works best for them.

Questions Charlotte has answered

How do I structure a History essay?

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.
