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.

Reviews (1)

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, currently training 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.

Spanish Tutoring and History Tutoring for ages 12-18
I am offering tutoring in History and looking for tutees from Primary school to upper Secondary school students and also looking for tutees for Spanish at any age range. As bilingual British National who grew up in Madrid in an International British School: King's College Madrid, I have been speaking, listening and writing in Spanish from an early age. I have experience in being able to switch between languages effectively and I find it easy to engage in conversation in both Spanish and English. I have also had previous experience in teaching English to Spanish students for which I believe the skills are transferrable to teaching Spanish to English students. During the sessions, I would help with completing grammar exercises as well as work on conversational topics in order to provide a wider range of vocabulary to help with oral as well as written exams. I believe it is important to set exercises and tests during the sessions so I can figure out the main difficulties that the student has in writing in Spanish in order to tackle these problems and help the student. I am outgoing, patient and eager to help students build up their confidence in being able to comfortably speak a foreign language (Spanish) as well as build on their grammar and knowledge of Spanish culture. As well as this, I have recently graduated from The University of Kent where I obtained a 1st Class Honours in my degree. The degree covered a wide range of IGCSE and A level History topics including International History between World Wars as well as American, Russian, African, Indian and Spanish history during the 20th Century. With this, the sessions will consist of providing greater knowledge to the study of History, not only focusing on learning facts, but mainly the significance behind them in leading to other events and the analytical process comparing and contrasting certain viewpoints in order to provide two sides of an argument. My teaching style, therefore, involves following exam structures and working out the key features of writing history essays, as well as setting writing exercises to prepare for exams with the short time available to write said essays. I understand the difficulties that exist for GCSE and A-Level History students and I believe my experience will help to push students to understand the main points to work on when preparing for an essay or exam.

Support course, homework help or methodology
Currently a first year student of the International Master in Architecture at KU Leuven as well as a correspondence student in the second year of the Research Master in Philosophy, I propose to help your child with his homework (simple follow-up, methodological and editorial help etc.) and this at primary as well as secondary. I have been giving private lessons in France for 4 years and my university career has allowed me to acquire methodological skills in a large number of subjects: - Scientific Baccalaureate 2015 - Preparatory class for the grandes écoles (Letters / social sciences / mathematics) 2015 - 2017 / Under-eligible for the Normal Superior School - Double license (3rd year) Philosophy - Social Sciences (Paris I Sorbonne - Paris X Dauphine), mention Bien 2017 - 2018 - Bachelor of Architecture (2nd and 3rd year) National School of Architecture of Nantes, mention Bien 2018 - 2020 - Research Master in Philosophy by distance learning Paris IX Nanterre, 2019-2021 - International Master of Architecture KU Leuven, 2020-2022 I speak French (native), English (C1), Spanish (B2). My methodology evolves according to the needs and difficulties of the students. For fairly regular support, such as homework help, I usually set up a file writing system which allows students to structure their work and to be able to revise even after I have left. For more methodological advice I also adapt to the student. Thus, there may be joint writing or corrections of work done in class. On the other hand I am very available for my students, I respond quickly by email if necessary, I can also make corrections or revision documents from my home in order to complete the sessions with your child.

Brian
English, History, Politics and Personal Statement Tutoring
I am offering tutoring for subjects such as English, History and Politics with a particular emphasis on essays, applications and drafting skills. Formulating a written argument that is both succinct and coherent is a crucial skill for any discipline but it is especially useful for subjects such as english, history and politics. I believe that anybody is capable of writing well and my classes are designed to improve a student's structure, vocabulary and syntax. The class is designed for a broad range of students who may be looking for help on a particular project, application or simply want to improve their writing skills. My classes are not overly prescriptive and I am willing to adapt my teaching methods to a student's particular needs and objectives. Ultimately, my aim is for students to develop their writing skills and become stronger communicators.

Luca Dino
Italian, History, History of art and grammar teacher
Italian is a beautiful language, but like all languages, to learn it, you need to practice it with grammar exercises, reading, and above all, speaking. Through my lessons, you can learn through an alternative approach, deepening historical and cultural insights, and of course, grammar. My teaching philosophy is to be able to connect with students based on their passions. I can also offer lessons of history and history of arts since I hold a bachelor's degree in cultural heritage.

Marcel
English, German and History Tutoring for Students in Primary and Secondary School
Hello! I'm an English student at the University of Luxembourg with the goal of becoming a teacher. I enjoy helping kids and teenagers become better at subjects they might be struggling with. By engaging the students directly and finding out their weak points as well as their strengths, I aspire to help them improve while also make their learning experience fun. As a young university student, I can empathize and communicate well with younger students especially. I offer lessons in English, German, history and maths for students in primary schools, as well as English, German and history on secondary school level. I'm available in the evenings, weekend and earlier in the day if it is required. I can do online lessons, as well as lessons at your place if you live in the south of Luxembourg.

Jaye
World History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed history and historiography from high school, where I received top marks, through university, where we studied history from Australia, the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. In recent years, I have particularly tried to focus on history retold from the perspective of those left out of the traditional view, which is really just anyone who isn't a white, upper-class, European male. This broader and more complex view of history leads to a more nuanced understanding of the past, particularly from a social perspective. I try to bring this knowledge to the classroom, to help the student understand history contextually and how it is shaped through an interplay of individual personalities and social, economic and political trends. I work to include as much primary evidence as possible and always encourage students to approach both primary and secondary sources critically, considering the bias and intention of the source. If I'm not familiar enough with the particular aspect of history the student is studying, I will do the necessary research to be able to help them competently. I really enjoy history and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.

Shakshi
Social Science for Class IX & X (CBSE)- anyone who is struggling to grasp the concepts, this class is for you.
Social Science is the building block of any student's learning career because it opens many avenues of experience. Having done bachelors in Social Science myself, I am more than eligible for taking this class. The class would not be very strict but would be a learning curve for those who want to pursue social sciences further. The class would be a give and take relationship, wherein both student and teacher contribute into getting a desired and optimum result. Thank you.
