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.

About Me

Having done my Undergrad at Cambridge (where I was an academic Exhibitioner, student journalist, and debater), I worked as a teacher and pastoral tutor at a boarding school for a year, gaining experience of both in person and online learning. In search of a new challenge, I returned to Scotland in August 2020 to start postgraduate work at Edinburgh University.

Outside of the classroom I'm a keen reader, hillwalker, and writer- I try to communicate this love for the written word and natural world in my work, using examples from literature and general culture to illustrate concepts. I also do standup comedy, when I get the chance.

FR - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be happy to help you learn English, whether it's from scratch or to improve your knowledge. I love getting my students to speak since I think practice is the secret to learning a language and improving knowledge. I always structure my classes according to themes based on real life (how to present myself, how to make an appointment, to go shopping, to go to the doctor, English at work, etc.). We will see together grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. If you are intermediate, we will also do text lessons. We will put both grammar and vocabulary into practice. EN - Hi, I'm Lucie and I would be glad to help you learn English, be it from scratch or to help you improve.

We'll go through the grammar, vocab, and pronunciation. If you're intermediate, we'll also do some lessons about reading comprehensions. We'll put both the grammar and vocab in practice.

Io
English Literature and Language and Greek Language
This course, divided into two different parts depending on the subject of interest (English or Greek/Ancient Greek), is for aspiring students to learn a language, support their arguments and express their ideas with clarity. The results of this effort are directed by the importance of communicating through language. The aim is to create a challenging learning environment, which will be anything but overwhelming. As a tutor, I specialise in the methodology of learning. My primary focus is on the ways through which students enjoy the learning process so that memorizing details and rules wouldn't be very difficult or uninspiring. Grammar is important, however, the method through which a student can get interested in it, is what matters the most. Homework will be assigned weekly, however, its role is of less importance compared to the actual attendance of the students during the course. Teamwork is the key to this beautiful door called 'learning a language'.
