About my sessions

I will structure my tutorials mostly around possible exam questions. I would begin my ensuring that my student had a good foundation understanding of the text or period of history they are studying, sometimes it's good to just talk through it and iron out any areas of confusion. Once I'm confident they understand the source material, we can look at the different angles exam questions can take on it, widening the pupils comprehension of the sources and getting them to think as the exam...

I will structure my tutorials mostly around possible exam questions. I would begin my ensuring that my student had a good foundation understanding of the text or period of history they are studying, sometimes it's good to just talk through it and iron out any areas of confusion. Once I'm confident they understand the source material, we can look at the different angles exam questions can take on it, widening the pupils comprehension of the sources and getting them to think as the examiner does. I'll do this through using whatever the pupil finds helps them most to remember, such as spider diagrams or flow charts. Then we will make essay plans together, basic at first, and then build this up to writing the essays. I will share mock answers and actual essays I've written before, and ask my pupils to write answers which I'll mark with exam mark schemes and take them through how I've marked it and what we can improve. We will also highlight all the positive things they've done, and I would also try to focus on the enjoyment they can get from the actual texts and history, and not just turn it into drab essay writing!
