About me

Hello, my name is Patrick.

I  am a History graduate of the University of Oxford currently studying on two very different masters programmes in Switzerland and Germany (renaissance singing and African Studies respectively). 

I have a thirst for knowledge and I love passing it on, and helping others to understand tricky ideas or develop their academic skills

I am patient, encouraging and enthusiastic. I will always take things at the student's pace. If you're struggling, I'm here to help. If you want to push the boundaries, I'll help you push them. 

Please feel free to set up a meet the tutor session - I look forward to meeting you!

Patrick was absolutely fantastic for my son who after the first session said he felt 'inspired' again. He was patient, supportive and very knowledgeble and my son really enjoyed his sessions. Patrick gave my son the confidence and skills needed to do his AS exam this year. We are very grateful.

Very helpful, used Patrick for three sessions and all were very beneficial. Used a variety of content and exam technique sessions which helped extremely. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a high quality tutor.

Questions Patrick has answered

How do I analyse a historical source?

Analysing historical sources can be daunting. But it need not be. 

Try asking yourself a series of questions every time you are presented with a source. Some of them might sound obvious, but it even obvious things can be important. Try questions like these, in categories that lead you into greater complexity and nuance as you go.

Type

What is the source? Is it primary or secondary? Is it a letter, a cartoon, a history book, a newspaper clipping?

Origin/Audience

Who made it? Who was it made for?

Content

What does the source say? What is the core message? 

Method

How does it give that message? Is it persuasive to you? Might it be persuasive to anyone?

Intention

Why was it made? What purpose does its message fulfil?

Assessment 

What can we learn from it? Is the message trustworthy? Do the answers to other questions above tell us anything?

There is no set way to analyse sources, but you should be taking into account all of these kinds of questions, and incorporating them into your written answer.
