Experience / Qualifications

I am currently working as a Pupil Support Assistant, which involves contributing to programmes of work for young people with additional support needs and help to assess their effectiveness. In this role, I am responsible for providing an appropriately challenging and stimulating educational environment where individual children and young people are encouraged to reach their full potential.

Similarly, I have also worked as a Playworker for two years at an After School Club, which involved daily interaction with children, who I built great relationships with. In this role, I was responsible for the organisation of daily activities and ensuring a safe, inclusive environment for the children who attended the After School Club. This role also extended to other areas, such as helping children with homework and providing stimulating and educational activities.

Lewis
Cambridge Graduate offering bespoke History, Politics, and English tuition.
Overview: I offer bespoke tutoring services to school pupils and individuals studying History, Politics, and English. With a background in History and experience in the teaching and media sectors, I provide a professional, insightful, and comprehensive service aimed at improving a client's understanding of a topic, their confidence within it, and targeting specific issues and skills as required. I also provide advice on university selection and applications, building on experience as an applicant myself and coach for successful applicants to highly selective universities (including Oxford, St Andrews, and UCL). Teaching methodology: I believe that the best way to teach is to communicate, work out the student's needs with them, and proceed from there. We live in a diverse world, and it's important to reflect that diversity in teaching. I believe in using a variety of sources to help teach, ranging from films, to books, to music clips. This is particularly important in the context of clients with LS needs, as a focus on one kind of source can impact the pupil's experience,and hinder their success. My lessons are based on a core Learning Objective, changing from lesson to lesson with the curriculum. Around that, there will be a series of case studies, examples, and anecdotes, with personalised support for exam answers if required. Half the battle with the humanities is ensuring that good ideas are communicated well- I seek to teach history and support the development of those communication skills to ensure that the pupil's ability is reflected.

Elme
International Baccalaureate History (Standard Level, Higher Level, Grade 3 - DP2, IB)
I completed the IB DP with a consistent 7/ high 6 in Higher Level History, and this has always been one of my favorite subjects. I am very good at this subject and have somewhat of a passion for it. I have a very good grasp of what is expected from the IB students as pertains to this subject, and I know the ins and outs of the criteria and the weird and wonderful little ways in which the IB expects the students to perform. I am able to help with any course work, homework, assignments, or assessments. As pertains to the DP students, I also did my EE on a History topic so I can assist there if need be. I am also a tutor in English and as comprehensive writing and legibility is a large part of what is expected from IB History students, I can offer particular insight into how to best write and get arguments across.

Sophie
Higher and Standard Level History International Baccalaureate
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.

Tom
History GCSE Tutoring for Students of all Abilities
GCSE History can pose considerable challenges to the student, predominantly due to the often unfamiliar way of approaching questions in the exam, and thanks to the wealth of information a student has to learn. My aim for this class would be to consolidate their learning, explain historical themes and concepts and offer guidance on exam technique. I am, however, flexible, and will respond to whatever each student needs. Though I am not a specialist in all fields of history, I have a broad understanding of historical themes as a whole, and can quickly absorb new information to benefit all students in their learning.
