Hey there prospective student.
I'm Toby, and I provide tutoring for History and Classical Civilisation at GCSE and A Level, alongside Personal Statement and Oxbridge admissions mentoring; so if you would like help with any of these areas, I could be the tutor for you.
I'm currently studying first year History at Magdalen College Oxford, and received a 1st in my collection exams earlier this year. At school I received an A in A level History (as it happens, I can also teach you how to not do that), an A in A Level 3D Design, and an A* in A Level Classical Civilisation.
As a tutor, I aim not only to make a subject understandable, but enjoyable. I endeavour to make tutorials as interactive as possible, and cater for the personal needs of each student. For me, a really important part of this is to take nothing for granted; I will really do my homework for each tutorial- hopefully just as much as you! I feel this helps me in two important goals: imparting basic facts, and critiquing the various broader arguments that link them together; both of which are vital for writing a good essay. It sounds nasty, but trust me, it can even be fun. I am also perfectly happy to be very flexible, and work around your time restrictions (as I'm just a nice guy like that).
Areas I have studied include Mycenaean Civilisation, The Iliad, Aeneid, and Odyssey (in English), Ancient Greek sculpture and architecture, Dark Age Europe, seventeenth and eighteenth century England, Tocqueville's account of the French Revolution (in French), the origins of the Bolshevik Revolution, Nazi Germany, the History of Medicine, and the American Civil Rights Movement.
So if you want some help with facts and stats, essay technique, past papers, revision, personal statements, Oxbridge admissions, or even if you want to see if you can teach me a thing or two, get in contact, I'm always happy to chat.
