About me

Hi I'm Sophie!

Hi I'm Sophie!

A recent graduate with a First from Durham in History, I am eager to put the knowledge and tips I have acquired over the past few years into practice!

Indeed, while History is a vast subject and I have my own specialisms, the basic technique of essay structuring, exam preparation and primary source handling remains the same, and thus can be applied to any historical topic. In any case, I strongly believe studying History cultivates a skillset that makes it essential to academic development across the board. It requires scientific analysis when assessing primary sources, creativity when constructing arguments, and clear communication skills in order to coherently present ideas. Alongside History, I am also available to help with English Literature and Spanish (both subjects I studied until A-Level and remain passionate about) as well as personal statements.

As a tutor my ultimate aim will be to help the student so that they can independently implement what they have learned through our sessions. I understand how stressful studying can be for everyone involved (parents included!), so feel free to contact me and I will be more than happy to help.
