About me

Hi, I'm Lauren and I'm a second year History student at the University of Durham! I am currently working on a project about gender and sexuality in revolutionary Russia, but I have a passion for modern European and North American history - which I grew to love during my GCSEs and A-Levels. I also studied English Literature and German at A-Level and have a continued interest in both subjects so would be more than willing to provide assistance with these too!

Hi, I'm Lauren and I'm a second year History student at the University of Durham! I am currently working on a project about gender and sexuality in revolutionary Russia, but I have a passion for modern European and North American history - which I grew to love during my GCSEs and A-Levels. I also studied English Literature and German at A-Level and have a continued interest in both subjects so would be more than willing to provide assistance with these too! I know that exams can be a really stressful time and, for me, having a friendly face around to provide guidance and reassurance gave me so much more confidence and so that is what I aim to provide through tutoring. As I have recently been through the process of applying to university, and am currently helping my little brother work towards his GCSEs, I have a strong understanding of the expectations and stresses of the exam period, and would hopefully be able to combat these by making students feel more comfortable and confident in the subjects that I love. Outside of academic life, I play netball and hockey, as well as being the Entertainment's Officer for my college, which involves organising the whole of Freshers' Week as well as throwing regular socials for students to get involved in; hopefully demonstrating not only my organisational capabilities, but also my approachable and bubbly manner which I would bring to my lessons.

About my sessions

I will aim to structure, prepare and deliver my Online Lessons in a way which suits the individual student - or if I notice areas during lessons which require a little improvement, then I will pay closer attention to those next time. For example, this could range from providing whole sessions on exam technique for particular questions, or spending more time focussing on analysis of primary or secondary sources, rather than pure content. My friends would always joke about how organised and det...

I will aim to structure, prepare and deliver my Online Lessons in a way which suits the individual student - or if I notice areas during lessons which require a little improvement, then I will pay closer attention to those next time. For example, this could range from providing whole sessions on exam technique for particular questions, or spending more time focussing on analysis of primary or secondary sources, rather than pure content. My friends would always joke about how organised and detailed my revision notes were and so bringing in advice on revision methods is something I would strongly aim to do in my lessons. Learning works so much better when it is fun, and so I would include little quizzes and tasks, which I believe will really help to remember content - particularly with dates and key events in history, or vocab for German. These quizzes are also a great way to measure progress without the pressure of long-exam style questions - and if students require more exam practice I would help them to set questions and plan essays in order to measure progress in a much less tedious way than spending an hour writing a long answer.
