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.
