About my sessions

The experience that I have gained from observing lessons and teaching supervised classes in schools has taught me that interactive teaching is the gateway to academic achievement. I will use a variety of methods such as mind maps, acronyms, quizzes and diagrams to help you reach the next academic level. I want to help you get to grips with the subject material, while giving you the confidence to use the right exam and essay techniques to get the grades you deserve. Everyone learns differently so I will tailor my teaching to your learning style and exam board. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send me a message via my profile or book a ‘Meet the Tutor’ session.

An update on my earlier review of Sophia. Our son has now received his GCSE results, and with Sophia's help, his final result was two grades higher than his school had predicted. Definitely a positive result as a result of Sophia's tuition :)

Questions Sophia has answered

Why could you argue that Henry VIII's break with Rome was fuelled by Henry's desire for more wealth and power?

While it would be difficult to argue that Henry's desire to increase his political and financial standing was the catalyst for the break with Rome, it was certainly a factor. In an effort to pressure Pope Clement VII into sanctioning the annulment of Henry's marriage to Katherine of Aragon, Henry began removing the sources of the Pope's power and revenue in England by transferring them to the Crown. Acts such as the First and Second Act of Annates (1532 and 1534) and the Act to Stop Peter's Pence (1534) abolished the payment of taxation to Rome, while acts such as the Act for the Submission of the Clergy (1534) removed the Pope's right to interfere with ecclesiastical matters in England. Once it became clear, however, that the Pope would not yield and that Henry would therefore have to break with Rome in order to annul his marriage, Henry saw the now inevitable break with Rome as an opportunity to increase both his wealth and power. This suited both Henry's financial needs and political ideas. Following costly wars with both France and Scotland, the Crown was in desperate need of more revenue. The break with Rome also gave Henry the chance to realise the concept of caesaro-papism, the idea that the head of state should also be the head of the church. This was a central argument in Tyndale's 'Obedience of a Christian Man', a book which Anne Boleyn had given Henry. Indeed, the break with Rome culminated in Henry being made Supreme Head of the Church of England through the Act of Supremacy at the end of 1534.
