History tutoring and exam preparation for 11+, 13+, GCSE, IGCSE, A-level, IB and University Applications

I am a first class graduate of History and Politics at the University of Manchester, having received an A* at A-level in History. I have a passion for all things past tense, and that reflects in the enjoyment of past students' in my lessons. I have been tutoring History for 3 years during my time at university, and have decided to continue this now I have graduated.

I have a great deal of experience helping students gain entry into some of Manchester's most competitive schools, such as Manchester Grammar, Withington High school and St Bedes. My favourite level to teach, however, is GCSE and A-level History, where I believe a tutor can go into a level of detail that is not covered in class, and allow for a greater quality of essay reflecting this deeper understanding of a period. This understanding is inevitably reflected in essays, in which I will also coach a structure of writing that is suited to both exams at the time, and help with a-level and university level further down the line.

About Me

Thinking outside the proverbial box is essential when writing about history. This is what I have learnt, and what I now come to expect from my students looking to achieve their best possible grade. To approach things in a linear A-to-B fashion is essential in some instances, which is why I also place a strong onus on essay writing and structuring. However, I have found that the best students, and the same goes for top teachers/academics alike, find ways to integrate the opaque and often omitted sections of history into such a formulaic structure.

My course will teach students to, first, understand the basics of their historical period, so as to not make costly mistakes that could hamper their grade, then it will move on to the structural side of essay writing, which I have come to find many struggle with. Before finally moving onto the art of venturing outside of the writing norm, finding nuances within their historical period which sets them apart from those simply regurgitating information copied and pasted from a textbook.

I enjoy talking about history, and hearing others talking about history. I have always found that the best way to understand a topic is by having a conversation about the in's and out's of the period. Finding peculiar links that possibly would not be spotted when assessed in the confines of a classroom.

Experience / Qualifications

2 years experience in tutoring in my local area, started with low-level tutoring for Maths and English GCSE's. Also took part in a 'Peer-Mentor' scheme at the University of Manchester where I acted as a mentor for a group of 15 first years, this involved me reading over the groups essays and offering them feedback. I am pleased to say that each of these students is currently thriving at the University and I still keep in touch with them.

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.

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.

Dominique
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.
