About me

I am a university student studying History and Politics. I love my subject because it teaches me about the extraordinary people and events that shape this world but it also shows how far the past can effect the present and our future. I have knowledge from the early modern to the Cold War and beyond. While my studies have a lot of focus on Britain and America, I have studied Africa and Asia because I believe it is important to get a full range of historical perspectives.

I am a university student studying History and Politics. I love my subject because it teaches me about the extraordinary people and events that shape this world but it also shows how far the past can effect the present and our future. I have knowledge from the early modern to the Cold War and beyond. While my studies have a lot of focus on Britain and America, I have studied Africa and Asia because I believe it is important to get a full range of historical perspectives.

I specialise in both World Wars and Cold War history, Witches during the early modern period, Russia, Britain from the 1700s and American history 1776 to present

Politics has allowed me to broaden my field of study. I feel that it is important not just to study to pass exams but to engage and develop important life skills from the study of these subjects such as analysis and being able to write clearly with a purpose.

I tutor all parts of the politics A Level, both AQA and Edexcel boards.

I will help students improve their essay writing and planning skills as well as evaluation and considered judgements and helping expand their knowledge on a subject.

I can tailor my lessons to the subject and the aims of the student. Exam prep is important so I can both plan and write example essays to go through with them or help them in planning and writing their own. I can teach speed planning which is important during exams and how to successfully analysis sources, texts and lines of argument.

If students need help with subject knowledge I can help them through revision techniques that suit the way in which they learn and go through topics with them. I will prepare for sessions by making sure that there are not gaps in my knowledge and getting ready any material such as texts, articles or videos.

Practice exam papers and planning will be an extremely important tool because they will be able to go into an exam confident that they know how to tackle it. But developing analytical and evaluative skills are also important because it will allow them to use them over more of their subjects so I will encourage this by asking questions and challenge them to think more widely about their subject.

In the hour got in a lot of detail and she made sure that I understood what I needed to know. She also stayed at a good pace so that I had time to write notes
