History, Humanities, Essay-writing and exam prep

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Having worked in an alternative school, my approach is very much based on the understanding and ways of learning of each student. Rather than imposing a specific method on the student I try and understand how they work, how they understand the subject and what the university or school requires of them, and help them improve in the areas needed.

I specialize in teaching History and Political Science for both school (iGCSE, A-Level, IB) and university (Bachelors). My teaching focuses on both content and form (essay writing and exam prep skills).

About Me

I am an open, multicultural person who thrives on social encounters and intellectual discussion. I was trained in an alternative pedagogical method which focuses on cultivating autonomy in the student in an environment free of fear. As such, trust and respect between the student and the teacher is of vital importance if learning is to occur.

Pierre is a great professional teacher who understands exactly my students needs and how to help me.
I needed help in writing my statement of purpose, I didn't even know where to start. He was very good at asking the right questions allowing me to put my thoughts in order to plan out how to begin writing. I highly recommend him as he knows very well what he's doing and has experience.

I specialise in History A Level (Edexcel and AQA) and IB. I am an english native speaker with three years teaching experience in an alternative boarding school in Hampshire and work with a distinctive teaching style adapted to each student's needs and personality. Rather than trying to cram in a bunch of facts I approach history as a curiosity: what makes it interesting? why is it relevant to our lives today? Why, indeed, do they say that history always repeats itself - is it that we can never learn from the past? These are the kind of meta-questions that will run through our classes most of which will be discussion based and will include homework, short exercises, co-marking and assignment of additional readings to complement your syllabus.

I specialise in Proof-reading and editing essays of any sort of subject and can do this in approx. 3 hours depending on the length of the document.

I can provide feedback post-reviewing an essay (if necessary) via skype as well as prior to editing should the person want to discuss how much editing/preferred form of editing needs to be described.
