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.

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.

English University Preparation (including Oxbridge Interviews) and English teaching
I recently graduated from the University of Cambridge with a history degree. My goal is to help students learn English or prepare for Oxbridge Interviews. I have a very clear and simple teaching style and will provide progress reports. I can also assist students applying for any English university. I can give advice on personal statements, answer questions about the application process and help them to prepare for any entry exams.

History (for primary/secondary school, GCSE, A level)
History is a fascinating subject to study at school whether studying it at a high level such as A level or in secondary school building crucial skills for the future that will help you understand the world. However, mastering the art of History exams can be difficult (as a student myself I know!), and therefore having a former student who has achieved the highest grades help with it can both enable a student to reach their full potential and discover a newfound excitement towards the subject.

Jaye
US History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed US History since high school, where I received top marks, through university to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. I am most familiar with mainland history from US Independence to the present day, however am always trying to improve my knowledge about Native American history, and the territories. I have also studied extensively the impact of the US on the wider world and it's relations with the global community. I believe it is important to teach history from a wide variety of perspectives. 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.

Luke
First Class History graduate from the University of Cambridge offering tuition in History GCSE/IGCSE, A Level, and Oxbridge applications.
Having been home-tutored (as opposed to attending a regular school) throughout GCSEs and A Levels, I have a deep personal experience of works and what doesn't in regard to tutoring. The most important aspect of teaching for me is flexibility: I strive to adjust my teaching style according to how you like to learn, whether that is through images, through debate, through listening, or through games (which is still totally possible at A Level!). I think the best way to teach is to start with the student. What do you find difficult? What do you enjoy? What motivates you? Having answered these questions, I will then tailor the subject matter to the student. I can cater for almost any historical interest you may have, whether that is the ancient Spartans, the history of medieval Islamic philosophy, or twentieth century Indian politics. The average length of a lesson is around an hour. The first few minutes will centre around getting to know you or your child, followed by a a tailored lesson on an area both of us feel best suits your needs, and finally ending in a game-based revision of what has been covered. How do I help with GCSEs? I teach the general historical narrative in an engaging way through interactive games to provide the general background to students. I help students develop the core elements required in an A* IGCSE/GCSE performance: an understanding of causation, historical analysis, and historical evidence. In basic terms, why stuff happens and how we can judge if it really did happen! I also tackle the most common barrier to excellent exam performance: essay-writing technique. Throughout I ensure that students become or remained enthused by history through including unusual characters and stories that would not be included in the classroom, often the icing on the cake that secures an A* grade. How do I help with A Levels? I negotiate the difficult transition from GCSE to A Level History by encouraging students to dive deeper into the past and the issues one confronts when studying it. I help students with the hardest element in the transition, essay-writing technique, by giving detailed feedback on their essays and tips on planning. I advise students how they can quickly and effectively respond to complex primary and secondary sources. I also can teach more specifically to ancient history (having achieved an A* in Ancient History A Level alongside the standard History A Level), covering Sparta, Athens, and Rome. How do I help with Oxbridge applications? I encourage students to reflect deeply on the study of history in a way that I have learnt while at Cambridge. I inform students of the type of questions they will be asked at interview and how they can tackle them. I help students preparing for the Aptitude Tests by broadening their horizons of study to areas and times that excite Oxbridge fellows.

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.
