About me

Hi! I'm Greg and I've just graduated from Oxford with a History degree. History is a fantastic subject. It trains your skills of judgement and analysis, sharpens your written communication, and develops your memory - more importantly though, it helps us understand the world around us, and our place in it.

Hi! I'm Greg and I've just graduated from Oxford with a History degree. History is a fantastic subject.

So, I like to structure lessons in two parts, with the first testing and explaining content, and the second focused on an exam question to put that knowledge to good use. How you write your answe...

I've had to sit many exams testing lots of different topics, so I really understand that remembering lots of facts can seem daunting! I work well with students who need help understanding and remembering content, but also believe that the secret to doing well is in developing good exam technique. So, I like to structure lessons in two parts, with the first testing and explaining content, and the second focused on an exam question to put that knowledge to good use. How you write your answers is just as important as what you know. I like to get students to explain a lesson back to me at the end, to check they have understood everything, and I always start by asking the student what their goals are, so we can design a plan to help them achieve them.
