About my sessions

Structure is key, both for my sessions and for academic writing. Therefore, to succeed in history and classics it is the research and structuring of your argument that facilitates higher grades. It is for these reasons that essay writing and techniques will be my main focus. Incorporating wider reading of primary and secondary sources into an argument that is well thought out, whilst also containing your own individualised argument, will enable you to tick boxes for your examiner, therefore i...

Structure is key, both for my sessions and for academic writing. Therefore, to succeed in history and classics it is the research and structuring of your argument that facilitates higher grades. It is for these reasons that essay writing and techniques will be my main focus. Incorporating wider reading of primary and secondary sources into an argument that is well thought out, whilst also containing your own individualised argument, will enable you to tick boxes for your examiner, therefore it is crucial to understand what your exam board expects of you and how to access these higher marks both in coursework essays and exam work.

Sessions will not involve myself relaying information and you listening in silence, as dialogue is often the key to the successful learning and understanding of complex subject matters. Please note that no question is too small or insignificant, as it is often the simplest of questions that cause us the biggest concerns when tackling academic work. I will always be happy to help.

Lastly, it is important to stress that I was in your position not long ago, so I understand concerns regarding what is expected of you. MyTutor is an excellent way to confront these worries and improve your academic performance, as you can interact with individuals who are of a similar age and have experienced similar difficulties in their own studies.
