About me

I am currently an undergraduate student of History at the University of Bristol. I am very passionate about history because I believe it is a discipline that is becoming ever more important as we enter a such an insecure period. I enjoy looking at current events and consdering how they reflect ongoing historical themes - particularly with the recent Brexit and Trump phenomena . The swing to the right we are currently seeing is, for me, what makes history such a relevant and important subject. My area of interest is rooted in 20th Century history, however I have studied modules in medieval and early modern periods so I feel I am able to offer a wide scope of historical knowledge. 

My teaching style will be relaxed and very much centred on you the student. I had very strong relationships with all of my A Level teachers, mostly because they treated me as an equal and valued my point of view. This is a characteristic I hope to bring to my tutoring sessions. I believe that everyone is capable of success, some just need a confidence boost - I know I certainly did. I want to help you to achieve your goals and reach your full potential. 

My A-Level course was provided by AQA so I am quite familiar with their patterns of marking and exam technique. As such, I am happiest to tutor students from this exam board. I looked at the French Revolution and Stuart 'Britain'.

About my sessions

Because the subjects I have chosen to tutor are essay based, I will be preparing for these tutoring sessions by looking at the different marking criteria provided by different exam boards and familiarising myself with the particulars of the exam specification. 

I will hope to meet each student and learn what it is they want from these tutor sessions and help them to meet their own personal targets by reading their work and giving them feedback. My aim is to build up, never to put down, but I shall endeavour to find ways for each student to push themselves to success. 

I hope to create a friendly environment in my tutorials in which student feel comfortable to ask whatever questions they may have. I hope to be able to help each student grow in confidence and find their inner voice as I believe this is the key to exam success. I understand that this can be a very stressful time for students and I shall help them to feel calm and as prepared as possible for their upcoming exams.

Questions Miriam has answered

'Charles I's intransigence was the ultimate cause of the regicide'. Assess the validity of this view.

To answer this question, it is important to consider three different points of view - that which agrees, that which disagrees and that which offers an alternative perspective. It would be ideal to offer at least two examples for each of these sections to achieve a balance in the answer. For example, we could say that Charles' intransigence was a key cause of regicide based on a) his handling of the Newcastle Propositions, and b) his actions towards the Scots. It is important to be specific when answering a question like this and always explain what you mean. It is better to be clear than to try and sound clever as this can mean you might becoming overly complicated. It would also be a good idea to include some historiography - the argument of a published historian. But, if you decide to do this, you will need to respond to this argument, and suggest how it either compliments what you are saying or disagrees with it. The most important part of answering this question is knowing what you think yourself. When you are sure of your own argument, the power of your writing improves massively and you will sound all the more convincing.  To answer this question, it is important to consider three different points of view - that which agrees, that which disagrees and that which offers an alternative perspective.
