I am a PhD student in History at the university of Bristol and have an interest in modern British and world history,anything from 1750 onwards, but although not where my specialism is, I can and often do go earlier. My undergraduate degree was a joint honours, Ancient History and History, so Classics is an abiding interest and was my first way into history. I come from a family of teachers, with both my father and Sister teaching in high schools. I have worked with school parties at a museum, taught chess to primary school students, and remember all to well tutoring my friends in High school through GCSE History. Sessions The structure and guidance behind sessions is up to you. This could mean focusing on content or understanding in history, or it could be focused on historical skills, answering questions, writing essays, source analysis etc.

About my sessions

I try to make my sessions as interactive as possible, asking the student questions about the content. I have found that students tend to understand something best when they try and explain it to someone else.

James did very well, he explains all the points in detail. At the same time, he also corrects any errors I might make, or have made. and never rushes you and lets you work at your own pace.
