Experience / Qualifications

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.

History, art history, world history, political science, geography
History is often considered as a boring subject with numerous dates to be remembered. Yet it is so much more than that. Through the sessions. Similarly, knowledge of our political environment and our surroundings is necessary to be a well educated person. I am also a freelance artist and teach painting to young students. I teach the courses while keeping it interesting through facts, videos and interactions.

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.

History courses:history made easy and comprehensible thought in a fun and interacting manner!!!
In my course , I will be focusing on explaining each of the historical events, figures and periods in the following manner:cause, motivation, consequences. Not only wil this make the course more enjoyable but it wil also make the student think in a critical manner, understanding events of historical impact. I consider history to be one of the most fascinating and important subjects thought in schools. The problem is however that it is thought in such a way that forces the student to memorize facts and not actually understand the great deal of importance of those events.

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.

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.
