About me

My name is Olivia and I would absolutely love to help teach you History and Politics. These were two of my favourite subjects at school and I think they give you such great skills to take to uni and help you think more critically about the world around you. I also know that they can be tricky and it can be hard to get the hang of writing essays that get good marks. But I have already been through GCSEs and A Levels and so would love to use my experience to help you ace yours! As someone who w...

My name is Olivia and I would absolutely love to help teach you History and Politics. These were two of my favourite subjects at school and I think they give you such great skills to take to uni and help you think more critically about the world around you. I also know that they can be tricky and it can be hard to get the hang of writing essays that get good marks. But I have already been through GCSEs and A Levels and so would love to use my experience to help you ace yours! As someone who went from a D in their A level Tudor mock paper to an A in the final exam, I know that a few months of work can make a massive difference, so I am so willing to help you improve quickly in whatever way I can!

I still do these subjects at university now so clearly love them

a lot and I am therefore so happy to take the time to discuss them with you and

explain anything you don't understand. As well as this I will give you the time

to write practice questions and will be able to assess them for you and see how

I can best help you out!

We will start by discussing the areas you would like to go over from your subject and plan what we want to cover in lessons. If you are studying for a specific exam, we will do this by going through the specification and look at the topics you would like help with.

In each lesson, you can choose how much time you want to focus

on content

or practice exam and essay

questions. I am happy to find/write sample questions and mark them for

you. I think with essay subjects like History and Politics the best way to get

better is just to practice writing so I will make sure to incorporate this into

all the lessons.

We can start the lesson by discussing the topic we have chosen

to cover and getting an understanding of what you are already confident with,

then I will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you have and ensure I

answer them thoroughly. We can then do a practice question together or do a

couple of essay plans, depending on what you find more helpful. Finally, we

will discuss what you would like to learn in the following session, so I have

time to make a great lesson plan!!

This is a super flexible structure and we can tailor it to

however you learn best, just let me know.

Olivia delivered a very well prepared lesson for my son. She kept his attention throughout, and checked back regularly to ensure he understood.
