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.

Extra information

I graduated 2 years ago with the IB having scored 44 points. I received 7's in all of my Higher Level subjects. I am so keen to help people with learning and I'm happy to take the extra time to find out the techniques which work best for you!

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 first 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 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.

Ancient Greek lessons with FUN and passion : preparation for school / university assignments / exams
I am a native speaker of Greek. I graduated from a Greek high school and, later, the University of Athens where I attended courses in pedagogics, psychology, and linguistics. During our lessons, I'll help you develop your skills (oral/written, and not only). I'll also try to help you improve your pronunciation and spelling. I assign homework and after I receive it, correct it thoroughly additionally providing a lot of remarks/examples if they are necessary. I worked at a language center between 2009-2016 where I was a director of studies and taught mainly English as a foreign/second language. Since 2005, when I first started teaching Greek, I have taught children and adults on a variety of language proficiency levels, mainly individually. I constantly seek progress, meaning that I study further through reading books/articles concerning didactics/methodology and learning difficulties (chiefly dyslexia), observing other teachers as well as attending seminars (online or face-to-face). During my lessons I use : - Skype/Whatsapp/Messenger to connect with you, - Google Docs to keep notes, which you can check at any time and they are yours to keep, - sketch board me to make mind maps to show connections between ideas, etc. - books, PPP, word docs, diagrams, pics, etc. - pronunciation/spelling/grammar games, - authentic materials were taken from websites. I adore my profession and desire each and every one of my students be satisfied with the lesson. That's why I make sure the atmosphere is stress-free and nice. I also want my lessons to be as effective and close to real-life needs as possible. Therefore, I make sure they are well-prepared, although they can be altered at any point, should such an opportunity arise. I like explaining things in a variety of ways as well as make use of dictionaries, diagrams, etc. When it comes to students who want to obtain certificates, I am very demanding. What can I teach? - I would love to help you improve/understand grammar/syntax. - I would love to help you with commentaries/translations of : 1.Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, 2.Homer, Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Sappho, 3.Herodotus, Thucydides, Xenophon. - I would love to help you with homework and assignments (literature, history) from school and university.

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.

Clément
History / geopolitics course - College and high school level
Three principles govern my teaching: - Taking into account the student's expectations - A very personalized follow-up: I work with you on the points which are not clear to you! - The structuring of my lessons: I work several hours before each lesson. In each class, I explain the key concepts to the program, we then apply these ideas in a concrete way (oral, written exercises) and finally I make a summary. Having completed my training in CPGE BL for two years, I am able to give the keys to historical and geopolitical understanding to any college and high school student.

A Level History Tutoring: The Crusades, c. 1071- 1204
The Crusades are an often misunderstood period in world history, and this can make understanding them a complex task. As somebody who has studied the Crusades both at A Level and at undergraduate level (indeed, writing my dissertation on an aspect of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem), I feel I am well placed to pass on my knowledge and skills. I am happy to help in any aspect of study, be it in understanding the period, people and events, or with other facets such as exam technique.

Homework help for elementary or middle school students
Good morning! I am a student in Master II Criminological Sciences at the Faculty of Aix-en-Provence after having obtained my License in Private Law and my Master I in Criminal Law. Having already accompanied college students in tutoring, I decided this year to repeat this experience and would be delighted to be able to accompany your children throughout the year. Benevolent and pedagogue, I can adapt to the needs of the child as well as to his objectives, whether they are related to specific subjects or focused on the work methodology. For any questions, do not hesitate to contact me, See you soon!

Jadie
English Literature and Language + History for 5-16 year olds
All of my lessons are specifically tailored to the student, what this intends to achieve is a specific course of learning, whether that be through writing practice essays, playing educational online games, writing, and creating flashcards to help remember information, mind maps, etc. If they decide they would like to work on something specific I am very flexible and would be happy to teach! The typical length of my lesson is 60 minutes, the first 10 minutes are to ensure the student is feeling good and ready to learn, as well as to address any marking or specific questions that the student may have about the work given or school material. The second phase of my teaching includes a quick-fire round, by which I aim to engage the student by firing a few questions in order to recall key facts/takeaways from the previous lesson. After this consolidation, I build upon the previous lesson by extending the topic or leading into the next subject. Depending on the student’s ability and focus, I will either choose for them to complete a short piece of work independently or step-by-step with me (they are of course allowed to ask for help whenever!). Finally, we assess the work, tackle any other problems or questions, and then finish with a game or short educational clip. The student may be given additional homework if I feel the material was misunderstood or could be improved upon. I have experience working as a teaching assistant in primary schools from early years to year 6, my work included: organising lesson plans; teaching one-to-one and in bigger groups; administrative duties, and supporting the emotional and social needs of the student. I have only had a few students privately as I would balance them on par with my own education, however, I found this difficult to maintain due to the pandemic, therefore I have more experience with primary school years, but I can cater up to GCSEs.

Ask me about Jamaica! Are you curious to learn more about Jamaica- to go beyond Reggae and Jerk? Its history, people, politics and culture?
Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica! Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica. Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure. I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves. Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices. It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions. Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!
