About me

I am a first year history undergraduate student at Durham University. I am very interested in all the humanities and how studying one can lead to a greater understanding of the others.   Having always taught my younger sisters, I have learnt the importance of being an being an imaginative and inspiring tutor, ensuring sessions are interactive and varied.   GCSES can often seem like an exercise in 'ticking the boxes,' in order to pass the exam. In the highly competitive academic world, I aim to provide a wider knowledge of the subject which will give the students a wider of the subject for their exams which will give their work 'the edge,' needed for the highest grades.   The main benefit of one on one tutoring is the ability to cater to each student's strengths and weaknesses. I will try to make each session personal to the student's needs, whether they need help with exam technique or recapping ideas.   I am friendly, approachable and committed to helping my students achieve the best grades they can.   If you are interested in arranging a meet the tutor session or have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me - I would love to hear from you!        I am a first year history undergraduate student at Durham University.

Questions Matilda has answered

How do I write a good introduction for an exam essay?

An good introduction is vital as it explains to the examiner exactly what argument to intend to follow in your essay. It should therefore briefly answer the question by stating all the points you intend to make, but not in too much detail or with too much context. It should always refer to the key words of the title as this shows the examiner you are focusing on the question and not just writing down all the knowledge you have about the subject.
