About me

Hi! My name’s Will and I’m studying History at Durham University. I’m also studying post A-Level German at Stage 4 as an extra module. I’m incredibly passionate about the past and love discussing and have loved discussing and learning about it from a young age. Being such, I’ve been fortunate to have learnt a lot of lessons in how to achieve top grades when writing essays in general and I’d like to share them with other people.

About my sessions

I’ll mainly structure my lessons through mark schemes and past papers as, in my experience, a deep knowledge of exemplars is vital to getting top grades. I’ll also work on essay planning individual questions in the sessions: doing this helped me so much in learning how to coherently display ideas and to learn to pair an answer to what an examiner wants to see. Hopefully this will be a two way process, I’ll write my own essay plans and examples of a suitable paragraph for the essay title so we...

I’ll mainly structure my lessons through mark schemes and past papers as, in my experience, a deep knowledge of exemplars is vital to getting top grades. I’ll also work on essay planning individual questions in the sessions: doing this helped me so much in learning how to coherently display ideas and to learn to pair an answer to what an examiner wants to see. Hopefully this will be a two way process, I’ll write my own essay plans and examples of a suitable paragraph for the essay title so we can discuss structure together.


To measure progress, I’ll grade plans and essay paragraphs, but I won’t give these to the student because I think a mark often discourages you from looking deeper into feedback and understanding what was effective/what wasn’t. However, I will give extensive written and oral feedback to plans or model essays.

I think encouraging learning is all about enjoyment. I genuinely believe that the process of essay-writing and effectively communicating ideas can actually be a fun process, and by being positive and attempting to make my sessions less of a chore than might be perceived I think you can directly improve results.
