PERSONAL MESSAGE: "My own academic interests range across the humanities, with a
particular interest in the enlightenment era and the making of
the modern age. Modern history courses for A-level, GCSE and
International Baccalaureate have been my staple for the past
eight years. I have worked with students of
varying academic ability, from those who have successfully
applied to leading universities; to those with specific
learning difficulties for whom a pass is a considerable
achievement. My primary aim as a tutor
is to help students develop their critical thinking skills,
which in turn helps their ability to plan and write good
essays. Whilst I can also dispense subject knowledge, in the
age of the internet the facts themselves are more immediately
obtainable for students than they have been in the past. I am
here to help students understand those facts; assert critical
judgment over what is reliable evidence and develop more fluent, organised and
sophisticated prose for essays and long-answer. Click here to go to my website
