About me

Hey there! I am an Ancient & Modern History student at Magdalen College, Oxford University and I absolutely love history and studies to do with culture and literature.  I am a big believer in providing students with the best grounding and materials possible so that even when they aren't with me in sessions there will be the capacity for them to develop and study further. I am keen and friendly, with a lot of enthusiasm, and I wish to instil this in my students as love of a subject can go a long way in improving someone's performance! I have experience teaching people of all ages across a range of subjects, from preschool mathematics to Oxbridge applications. As long as I know what you'll require me to cover, I will be able to tailor my expertise to help you. I can also offer advice and care in the run up to exams and school or university applications. As a previous Welfare Representative I am well versed in pastoral care and always bear this in mind with my students when I work with them. If you have any questions, send me a 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session'! (both accessible through this website). Remember to tell me your exam board and how I can best help you. I look forward to meeting you!

Amazing session on essay planning, really helped me grasp how to go about it, and what is essential when writing one.

Questions Aimee has answered

How should I analyse and answer source-specific questions!

Answering questions that require you to look in depth at sources is just like zooming into a spot on a picture, or thinking about the lyric of your favourite song. You're probably aware of the rest of the melody, or what overall picture is about, but when you're zooming in, you're trying to find out what one particular aspect means without losing sight of the bigger picture.

Think in depth about the language or means of the particular reference - is the tone angry? Respectful? Kind? This is an example of a detail to pick up on. You can usually tell by the grammar used, or the type of words. Now your knowledge of the bigger picture comes into handy. If you feel the tone sounds kind, for example, knowing that it could come from a letter about a zoo, as opposed to a prison, will change why the tone and the writer is choosing to sound kind.

Answering source questions is a great way to be super in depth and thorough, whilst also giving you and chance to show you know what goes on in the module you're studying.
