History Tutoring for students of all ages - from School Exams & Essay Writing, to Advanced Discussions & Debates

Having studied History throughout my academic life, both at school and at university, I now specialise in providing support for students of all ages.

Whether you're preparing for an exam and need structured, results-based teaching, or prefer to have a more casual environment for discussion, I offer an engaging range of lessons focussing around a variety of historical periods.

The lessons will focus on the periods of history that the student is primarily interested in, whilst also developing a greater understanding of the various historical methodologies that can be used more broadly when examining the chosen periods and themes.

About Me

I am a very personable and engaging tutor whose main aim is to focus my lessons around the unique needs and interests of each individual.

I have extensive experience working with students of all ages, particularly with children. I have tutored piano and singing regularly both privately, and occasionally in various educational institutions (e.g. Perseid School, Merton, for children with severe learning disabilities).

Please do get in touch with any questions you might have - I'd be more than happy to help out!

Experience / Qualifications

I have extensive experience in both

Music:

I participated in all aspects of music throughout my time at KCS Wimbledon including singing in the Chamber Choir, playing in the school orchestras and singing in several smaller groups and bands.
At University of Bristol I was a Vice-Chancellor Music scholar for 3 years and again participated in all aspects of music, including singing in the Chamber Choir and also playing in the University Symphony Orchestra. Aside to this, I have played in orchestras for productions put on by the University Opera Society and for post-graduate composition concerts and recordings.

And Acting:

I also took part in all the school plays, in both the Junior and Senior schools including acting several main roles in plays such as A Midsummer’s Night Dream, The Producers, South Pacific, Sweeney Todd, Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat and How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. I was also part of a professional radio drama, Charlie’s Choice, produced by Lamplighter Theatre in 2009/10. I also worked extensively with students with severe learning disabilities from Perseid School.
At university I was cast in my first year as the lead role, Sweeney Todd, in the Bristol University Opera Society production of Sweeney Todd and I also performed in Bernstein’s Candide and the university production of Mack & Mabel. I was also cast in a verbatim piece called 'Cherry' which was taken up to the Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and was very well received gaining 4 or 5 star reviews across the board and also meriting a review from the national newspaper, The Scotsman.

I completed my undergraduate degree in History at University of Bristol attaining a 2:1, achieving a 1st in my dissertation on the impact of rock 'n' roll on British society.

I am now studying on the Acting MA at Arts Ed and look forward to starting my career as a professional actor.

Really really enjoyable lesson with Mikey - a very engaging and confident tutor who made me feel immediately at ease.
Vocal confidence is crucial in every walk of life, and singing is a fantastic way to boost it. Each voice is unique and should be both heard and celebrated. These classes are designed to encourage pupils to release themselves from the pressures that often come with singing, acting and public speaking, allowing the individual to find confidence in their own voice. My work is applicable to singing, acting monologues and public speaking so, whatever your focus, I can draw on years of experience and tuition to help. I am a very experienced singer and musician, who trained in Acting at the prestigious Arts Ed, London. My main aim is to build on a pupil's passion and own interests, prioritising an enjoyable, tailored approach to learning.
We will work on students' acting, specific techniques & preparing students for any upcoming performance/audition they might have coming up. Beginners & Experienced actors welcome. Getting into the industry is hard and, be it drama school auditions, auditions for a production, filming self-tapes or anything, these sessions can really help!

Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!

English University Preparation (including Oxbridge Interviews) and English teaching
I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a history degree. My goal is to help students learn English or prepare for Oxbridge Interviews. I have a very clear and simple teaching style and will provide progress reports. I can also assist students applying for any English university. I can give advice on personal statements, answer questions about the application process and help them to prepare for any entry exams.

German language, culture and history taught by a native
Learning a new language is both rewarding and extremely useful. German is spoken by tens of millions of people worldwide and can prove to be a valuable tool for the job market. Additionally, a plethora of immensely important works of philosophy, literature, psychology and many more fields were - and are - published in German, enabling a speaker to broaden their field of knowledge. This class is perfect for those who are wishing to learn a new language, improve upon existing knowledge of German or those wishing to explore German literature and history more closely.

Elif
Experienced Turkish Language Tutor with MA degree at Teaching Turkish to Foreigners
Hi there, my name is Elif. I am from Turkey and I live in Ankara. I have a degree in Turkish Language and Literature from Gazi University. Now, I continue my master's degree in Teaching Turkish to Foreigners. I am a Turkish Language instructor at Ankara University Tömer. Before teaching university, I have 2 years of experience teaching Turkish at public schools. I can help you with pronunciation, vocabulary and grammar to improve your speaking skills. Also, we can organize academic writing and reading sessions. I like to organize my classes according to the learning objectives of each student and I will be happy to help you achieve everything you set out to do in terms of your level of Turkish! I have learned English as an adult and I am still learning my third language which is Persian. So, I have already enough experience about how to learn a language, I could share them with you.

History of art history, art valuation and art market. For beginners, bachelors and masters
Art history is a hobby for some people, for others it is a working tool to analyse the social and cultural context. It helps you to orientate yourself in the world of rapid change and globalisation. The understanding of cultural discourse is a rich and unique background which may impress your interlocutor and gain you points in the eyes of your friends and colleagues. One of the main goals I try to achieve as a tutor is to encourage my students to explore the art world around them. In my lessons, I create a friendly environment to teach how to analyse paintings having factual information, and how to look at the art from the big scale perspective. The lessons are specifically tailored to my student's interests, weaknesses and concerns and from this nurture a solid learning style that they will be able to take with them to further education. I have a methodical approach to learning where every lesson is planned, and materials are distributed afterwards to the student. I am always ready to adapt the lessons quickly to the level of the student’s preparation and knowledge, receiving feedback from parents, students or teachers.

Liv
Private lessons in History-Geography-Contemporary History- Ancient History
History is a subject often considered uninteresting. But I try to design my course according to your needs, your difficulties and even facilities in order to create a course in which you will flourish. Also, I am a student in History and therefore I can help you with the methodology and recommend several books to deepen your subjects. The course will be divided according to the periods: First, Ancient Rome, from Romulus to the death of Nero where we will study the different aspects of Roman life and its politics. Then, we will study the modern era with the plague epidemics, life under the old regime and the various kings as well as their life at court without forgetting the religious wars. The Middle Ages will be studied from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476. We will go through Clovis, religion but also royalty. Finally, the contemporary era (where I am most comfortable), where we will study the Catholic Church, the working world but also the global aspects of this period. We will also focus on the two world wars with the civilian impacts they had. If you want a course on the HGGSP, we will follow the program according to the pace you study in class. I would also like to train you orally, by doing some courses, by teaching you to master a PowerPoint and finally by teaching you the methodology of the dissertation, the presentation, the text commentary and finally the bibliography.

Adrian Camilo
History Tutoring for all ages. In English or Spanish
Have you ever thought that History is just a long list of dates and events? Have you ever struggled to make sense of it all? Then I'm here to help! Using every resource at my disposal, I will make sure you don't just look at a long list of dates, but actually understand what's behind it. The whys and hows of past and present alike. Whether you need elementary, middle, high-school, or more advanced tutoring, if it involves History I'm at your service.

Lewis
History for School aged children and teenagers - and adults seeking specific requested topics
History defines our surroundings, our identity, our nations, and our life in any way we do not always see. For myself, I have always had a deep passion for making history fun, exciting and captivating, something my students will experience in my classes, in which, through the medium of storytelling and class interaction I will take them through a journey through time learning about key historical periods related to their learning curriculum at school. I hold and BA in History and Politics (2:1) and an MSc in Heritage Studies (Merit), both from the University of Stirling, in which my research into Scottish Social history was well-praised by my tutors during my dissertations. During my time at university, and work at NGS I have cultivated extensive knowledge about Medieval Scottish history, the Viking era, and Ancient history such as the Egyptians, WWI & WWII, and Industrial British history, amongst many others. This knowledge enables me to ensure Primary and High School students can be taught the history curriculum at School by just one person. I am also open to requests about certain topics outside mainstream High Education curriculums, in which students would like me to research a topic and tutor them about it.

Sophie
Tutoring for primary school aged children in UK and further afield
I am passionate about working with children and young people and have done this for over 12 years working in schools, social services and charities. I have worked with children and young people experiencing homelessness, in local authority care, and who are receiving weekly support from agencies. I have also worked with families whose children are home schooled and world schooled. I love nothing more than seeing children and young people's confidence increase as they learn new skills and information. I also have over 12 years experience working with children, young people and adults with learning difficulties/learning disabilities/disabilities/additional needs ranging from ADHD to ASD to global development delay and understand the need to adapt tutoring accordingly dependent on the individual's needs. I am living in the UK but will be soon travelling the world with my son and exploring the world schooling lifestyle so love the fact I can tutor from wherever I am in the world. I tutor the following subjects and levels: English (from nursery to year 9) Welsh (from nursery to GCSE), History (from nursery to GCSE), Religious Studies (from nursery to GCSE), French (from nursery to GCSE) All of the above subjects were my favourite subjects in school. Mathematics (primary school age - in English and Welsh; secondary school age to GCSE - in Welsh only) Geography (nursery to year 9) Science (primary school age - in English and Welsh; secondary school age to GCSE - in Welsh only) I am also happy to tutor students who are learning English and Welsh and want to improve their skills with a native speaker. I can also tutor functional skills. I can also tutor through the medium of Welsh as I am a native Welsh speaker and completed all my education through the medium of Welsh. I can also tutor English as a second and/or foreign language to children and young people (ESL/EFL). I enjoy exam preparation work and adapt how I tutor dependent on the needs of the student. A bit about me, I love travelling, spending time with my children and grandchild, learning about other cultures, Netflix binges, reading (I am a huge bookworm) and enjoy keeping fit. I love dance-I am an ex-dancemum as my daughter was a passionate dancer from a young age and I used to own a dance workshop business bringing choreographers from abroad to the UK. I am a very patient, kind and caring person and will try my best to make sure that any student is happy with how I work and if they aren't I will adapt my ways to suit them as they are the ones that need to benefit from it and if something I am doing doesn't work then I will try different ways until they are happy. I am a firm believer in letting children and young people lead the session even if I am working on specific topics but I keep them focused on the task at hand too.
