About me

Hello! I’m Nicola, a final year undergraduate studying History (Ancient & Modern) at Balliol College, Oxford. I have always loved a broad range of topics (from Classical Greece to 20th Century European History) and enjoy sharing my enthusiasm through teaching. I have previously tutored both History and Ancient History to GCSE and A-level standard, to students of varied abilities and differing exam boards. I have also taught English in China and obtained a TEFL certificate!

Hello! I’m Nicola, a final year undergraduate studying History (Ancient & Modern) at Balliol College, Oxford.

Students are free to choose what they’d like to cover in our sessions, which I really want to be as fun and interesting as possible. At school, I often found that there was never really enough time to cover everything in sufficient detail or formulate the in-depth opinions that will help you to get the top grades. That’s where I’m here to help – I am encouraging and, whilst I do love to chat history, am a good listener. I am also eager to assist students who are thinking of applying to Oxford or Cambridge. This could be help with personal statements, the HAT test and/or interview prep. I scored highly in the HAT, and I believe that this was partly because I adopted certain thinking and planning strategies that made the test feel a lot less overwhelming. If you have any questions - please do ask!

About my sessions

For humanities subjects, I am always conscious of getting the balance between knowledge and exam technique just right. Often it’s not what you know, but how you apply your knowledge that really affects what grade you’re going to get. My lessons and revision techniques take this into consideration and ensure that you’re spending your efforts and time wisely (which is crucial when exam season comes around and the amount of information that you’re expected to know can seem rather overwhelming).<...

My lessons and revision techniques take this into consideration and ensure that you’re spending your efforts and time wisely (which is crucial when exam season comes around and the amount of information that you’re expected to know can seem rather overwhelming).

To clarify: I have completed Ancient History and History to A-level standard, and have tutored A-level students in both of these subjects. Whilst I strictly do not have any qualifications in Classical Civilization, I am confident to teach certain topics to GCSE level. Please, if you have any questions, send me a ‘WebMail’ or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’. Let me know your exam board and how I can best help you.
