International Baccalaureate Higher Level History. (Essay Writing for Papers 1, 2 and 3)

History Higher Level can be an extremely challenging class, not only incorporating the skill of essay writing but also that of memorising swathes of facts. As a recent graduate of the IB Diploma who achieved a 7 in History HL, I know exactly what it takes to achieve the top grades.

I have designed my course to gradually build upon essay structure, planning and writing as skills. We will begin by identifying weak points in your own technique and then tailor the course to what suits your needs. I will help you to be able to be prepared for a myriad of different exam topics which may show up and provide you with exam techniques which are essential for reaching the higher grades. I will assign homework for some lessons to track your progress.

Extra information

I achieved 44 points in my IB diploma in 2019. Be prepared to write some notes (e.g. make sure to bring pen and paper)

About Me

Hello there! My name is Sophie and I’m a medical student. I am super passionate about learning and I’m very flexible to adapt to your learning needs! I did the IB and GCSEs back in school so that’s what I’m best at teaching. I really have a passion for teaching and like to think of myself as a flexible tutor who will work with you on an individual level to help you achieve your best!

The technique I find most useful to help people is to break things down to a simple level and then layer up knowledge. Once you have the basics down, you'll find more advanced themes much easier!

Education

I have 10 GCSEs all A to A* (or number equivalent = 9). I received 44 points in the International Baccalaureate back in 2019. I now attend the University of Exeter as a fourth year Medical Student.

Experience / Qualifications

I have previous tutoring experience from working at school with younger students. These have mostly been from the ages of 14-18.

Reviews (1)

Very good! The session was adjusted to the needs of the student and it was easy to ask questions. Very well structured and goal oriented. Super good at explaining tings in depth but also outlining. I got loads of useful revision and exam tips. She definitely knows the curriculum well. Very kind and passionate as well.
I can provide tutoring for IB HL or GCSE level Biology and Chemistry. This will involve going through exam technique as well as explanation of tricky topics. Revision techniques will also be provided. This will include which topics are most essential, personalised guidance to study techniques which work for you and general advice. The teaching will be catered to how you learn and what you find most difficult. Each lesson we will focus on one area and then build upon that in future lessons. This method allows for layering of knowledge and skill causing steady improvement which is solid. These skills of memorisation, exam technique and essay writing within the sciences are not only useful for your exams, but are essential skills for anyone hoping to pursue a career in science/research.
History in the International Baccalaureate can be an incredibly demanding subject. It requires not only extensive knowledge of historical events, but also skilful strategy and excellent essay writing adeptness. I have designed my sessions to incorporate all three of these aspects by basing the teaching around your work and improvement. This allows me to personalise the lesson to work on the areas which are most helpful for you. I will teach you about essay writing specifically for the IB - the structure which gained me a level 7 in IB HL History when I graduated two years ago. I can also teach efficient revision techniques to retain not only the largest amount of education, but also the most important information.

Learn Armenian language, grammar, literature and history in Western Armenian.
Western Armenian is a language that has been put in the endangered language's list, and I personally believe that such a rich language should never die. I believe that I am taking a huge initiative to be one of the individuals who'll try to save this important language from disappearing. I try to make my lessons as interacting as possible. The lessons and exercises will be provided through PowerPoint presentations. I try to listen to my student in order to prepare the lesson plan together, according to his needs and preferences. I've always been the smiling and friendly tutor who makes the student comfortable during the lessons. I believe that in order to reach the students you need to understand them also emotionally and psychologically.

Dave
Boost your Study Skills: General or Assignment-based Tutoring
Hi, my name is Dave and I am a University (BSc) graduate who attended one of the top University Honors Colleges in the Netherlands. During my many years in the education system I have developed strong skills in academics, studying and teaching. The specific goal of this course is to give a meaningful boost to the student's ability to study efficiently and independently. This course is highly adaptable to the student's needs and preferences. Perhaps you would like support for a specific assignment, help to prepare for a tough exam or for me to review an essay you have written; or maybe you just have trouble studying efficiently and you are in need of some tips and tricks. My goal is always to not only help the student during the class, but also to provide them with the tools they need to thrive by themselves afterward. My own specialty lies mainly in the fields of Social Sciences, Politics, (Political) Economics, Game Theory, History, Religion, Philosophy and Academic Writing. I also have a decent amount of experience with International Law, Statistics and Geography. However, the overwhelming majority of the principles and tactics I teach in this class can be applied to any field or discipline, as the emphasis is put on the method of studying more so than on the content.

history, geography, archaeology, art history.
History is the vector that allows us to better understand our society, the world in which we live. It is essential for general culture. The level of the course will adapt to the level of the student, from primary to university. It is also possible to adapt it in relation to an exam or competition to be taken, or to a person wishing to complete their general knowledge on a particular subject.

The course begins with a small presentation, in order to relax the atmosphere. Then we do the homework! I use a playful method to prevent the student from getting bored. The goal is to guide the student towards autonomy, but also to develop his self-confidence. I accompany the student in his difficulty in literary matters.
