About me

Hi there - I'm Olive and I'm studying History at Durham University! I'm really passionate about my subject, especially the medieval period, but love to get stuck into all parts of history whenever I have the chance. I also studied Classical Civilisation and English Literature at A level as I love to read and write. I'm understanding and patient, and, having tutored my siblings and other students at my school, I'm hoping to broaden my expertise on teaching through tutoring...

Hi there - I'm Olive and I'm studying History at Durham University! I'm really passionate about my subject, especially the medieval period, but love to get stuck into all parts of history whenever I have the chance. I also studied Classical Civilisation and English Literature at A level as I love to read and write. I'm understanding and patient, and, having tutored my siblings and other students at my school, I'm hoping to broaden my expertise on teaching through tutoring since I'm looking to enter that profession after I finish my degree. I find it incredibly rewarding and love being able to share this enthusiasm with students that need it!

About my sessions

My sessions will be structured around answering and challenging key questions within the course/revision topic, based on what the student feels is holding them back/needs specific guidance on. I'll be measuring progress based on the student's ability to think for themselves and come to their own conclusions with the information and tools that I've given them, as well as their ability to challenge views that I'm presenting to them; History and Classics isn't just about reme...

My sessions will be structured around answering and challenging key questions within the course/revision topic, based on what the student feels is holding them back/needs specific guidance on. I'll be measuring progress based on the student's ability to think for themselves and come to their own conclusions with the information and tools that I've given them, as well as their ability to challenge views that I'm presenting to them; History and Classics isn't just about remembering names and dates! For me, learning to challenge and think critically independently is the most important skill to learn, not just for History, but for the future too. By the end of their time working with me, I hope that my students will not just have strengthened their History, Classics and English skills, but they will have a refreshed and enlightened mindset that can be applied to their other subjects too, as well as their daily lives.
