I recently graduated from the University of Exeter with a high 2:1 in History, and am now continuing my studies in Exeter at Masters level in Conflict, Security and Development. My passion for History has been a constant feature throughout my life, visiting battlefields across Western France, Asia and Turkey, along with taking part in an archaeological dig for copper smelting furnaces in Cyprus. Further, as a result of living in Switzerland for eight years, and communicating across language barriers in volunteer work in both South America and Asia, coupled with prior tutoring experience, means that I am able to help students of all backgrounds achieve their potential. In addition to my studies at University, I play football and guitar.

My tutorials will be structured to meet the needs of each individual student. First, I will aim to review what students wish to gain from each session and determine which approach to teaching, such as repetition or quizzes, works best with the particular tutee. This approach recognizes that not all students are receptive to a particular type of learning, and communication is essential to work out which method works best. For revising for history exams, my primary approach revolves around building an in-depth knowledge of each topic tested, along with aspects of the historiography, and focusing this knowledge on past paper or sample questions. Not only does this approach prepare the student for scenarios which appear frequently on test papers, but also ensures that they are prepared to answer questions that are unexpected.

I got a lot of help from Thomas when working on the IB history EE. It's very clear that he's experienced with writing good academic papers, so the advices and feedback given by him were great. Overall, Thomas knows what he's doing and is helpful.
