About me

Hello. My name is Bryony and I am a Durham University Graduate.

I completed my Masters degree in Medieval History and Latin and my undergraduate degree in History at Durham University. 

I was examined for my A-Levels and GCSE's by a mixture of AQA, EdExcel and OCR. I am available on evenings and some weekends.

I am a firm believer in the benefits of one to one tuition, I was tutored for my grammar school entrance exams and found the help to be invaluable.

Below is a short summary of how I think I can help students with each subject (although I am open to all questions and individual problems):

History – My main focus here would be writing style and essay structure, with attention to language, argument, judgement and overall essay coherence relative to either GCSE or A-Level ability. I am happy to proof read work and offer constructive feedback and discuss arguments. Talking about history can often bring it to life and help piece strands of knowledge together to help to analyse the period in question. My main areas of expertise for more in depth topic discussions are Modern Russia, World War One, Britain between the wars, British Political history, Early Modern British history from the reformation to the revolution and Medieval England from the Anglo-Saxons to the end of Henry I. With advance notice I can brush up on these topics to be of greater use.

English Literature and Language – Again as with history, the focus here would be on writing style and essay structure. I am happy to analyse sections of text and poetry with students and to discuss meaning and linguistic devices. I am also happy to proof read work, offer constructive feedback and work through past exam papers.

German – I am prepared to help with all skills, reading, writing, listening and speaking. I can help with pronunciation, grammar, cases, tenses (I have some fun ways of remembering many of the tables which may be useful) I am happy to help with homework or lesson recaps. If there is a specific issue, I am also prepared to put together a tailored lesson.

Please get in touch with me via a meet the tutor session if you would like any more information or to get started with lessons.

The lesson was fantastic! It was well structured, split in to three parts and very thorough, not at all rushed. Bryony was able to pin point what exactly I needed help with as well as providing tips and techniques for me to do better. I really recommend her for A-Level History! I look forward to our next lesson.
