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 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 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.

Généalogie familiale et recherches ciblées - Construire son arbre généalogique
Vous désirez en connaitre un peu plus sur votre histoire familiale, toutefois, vous ne savez pas par ou commencer? Votre grande-tante (ou votre grand-pere peut-etre) vous a fourni des informations sur ce fameux ancetre noble dont la famille descendrait et vous aimeriez en savoir un peu plus sur cet illustre personnage dont on vous a parlé pour confirmer ces dires? Ou alors, vous n’avez simplement aucune information fiable sur vos ancetres au-delà de vos grands parents et cela vous intéresserait de pouvoir nommer vos arrières-grands-parents, découvrir où ils habitaient, quels métiers ils exercaient, ou encore peut etre connaitre leurs hobbys favoris (on peut en effet découvrir énormement d’informations sur nos ancetres grace à des recherches un peu plus poussées). Il se peut également, que vous vous trouviez face à une impasse dans vos recherches et que vous apprécieriez l’aide d’une personne extérieure: quand on est très impliqué dans sa généalogie, il est parfois utile d’avoir un intervenant neutre qui nous aide avec le recul nécessaire pour y voir plus clair et débloquer une situation compliquée. Dans ce cours, je vous propose une immersion dans votre histoire familiale qui vous permettra de mieux connaitre vos ancetres, mais aussi mieux vous connaitre vous-meme.“ Lorsque tu ne sais pas où tu vas, regarde d'où tu viens” (Proverbe Africain). Lors de nos rencontres, nous travaillerons sur les étapes necessaires et essentielles pour découvrir vos racines familiales et créer, petit à petit, un arbre généalogique passionnant et fascinant que vous serez fier/fière de prséenter à votre famille et entourage! Voilà plus de 25 ans que je me suis intéressé pour la premiere fois à l’histoire de ma famille, car j’avais entendu (comme c’est souvent le cas) une anecdote un peu “fantastique” autour d’un fameux ancetre! Mandaté par un proche, j’ai eu pour projet de vérifier cette information. Et c’est ainsi qu’est née ma passion pour cette discipline que j’exerce au quotidien personnellement, ou alors pour aider des clients à mieux organiser leurs recherches et aller de surprises en surprises! C'est lors du confinement de 2020 que j’ai entrepris une formation diplomante en généalogie. D'origines Irlande-USA-Canada et Suisse, mes deux langues principales de travail sont l'anglais et le francais. Je vous propose également mes services si vous désirez me confier la création et la présentation de votre arbre familial. N’hésitez pas à m’en faire part lors de notre premier contact!

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.

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!
