About Me

Enthusiastic Humanities, History and French tutor!
I really enjoy teaching which is for me one of the best ways to transmit knowledge and support students in their path to building knowledge. I started as a French teacher in a local primary school and when I studied for my Ph.D. in Environmental Humanities, Archaeology and Geo-archaeology, I had the opportunity to become a teaching assistant and then a lecturer. I love teaching history which is my main academic background with specific expertise in medieval and environmental history, archaeology and geoarchaeology. As a historian, I help students to develop critical thinking, analyzing and understanding primary and secondary sources and also develop and master their communication skills (oral and written) which are essential not only for the study of history but also the day-to-day life. As an archaeologist /geo-archaeologist I have gained considerable skills in both the private sector and academia as a lecturer, and published author. Teaching is extremely rewarding when I can see students developing their knowledge and succeeding in their studies no matter the subject.
Whether you are looking to improve your conversation or need a tutor for academic purposes, as a french Native speaker I will support your learning. We will use your own material which could be complemented by various media supports such as watching TV programmes, reading books and magazines and listening to french songs too. With me you will be immerge in French culture which is the best way to understand and practice a language.

Tobias
Spanish Tutoring and History Tutoring for ages 12-18
I am offering tutoring in History and looking for tutees from Primary school to upper Secondary school students and also looking for tutees for Spanish at any age range. As bilingual British National who grew up in Madrid in an International British School: King's College Madrid, I have been speaking, listening and writing in Spanish from an early age. I have experience in being able to switch between languages effectively and I find it easy to engage in conversation in both Spanish and English. I have also had previous experience in teaching English to Spanish students for which I believe the skills are transferrable to teaching Spanish to English students. During the sessions, I would help with completing grammar exercises as well as work on conversational topics in order to provide a wider range of vocabulary to help with oral as well as written exams. I believe it is important to set exercises and tests during the sessions so I can figure out the main difficulties that the student has in writing in Spanish in order to tackle these problems and help the student. I am outgoing, patient and eager to help students build up their confidence in being able to comfortably speak a foreign language (Spanish) as well as build on their grammar and knowledge of Spanish culture. As well as this, I have recently graduated from The University of Kent where I obtained a 1st Class Honours in my degree. The degree covered a wide range of IGCSE and A level History topics including International History between the World Wars as well as American, Russian, African and Spanish history during the 20th Century. With this, during the sessions, I would provide greater knowledge to the study of History, not only focusing on learning facts, but mainly the significance behind them in leading to other events and the analytical process comparing and contrasting certain viewpoints in order to provide to sides of an argument. My teaching style, therefore, involves following exam structures and working out the key features of writing history essays, as well as setting writing exercises to prepare for exams with the short time available to write said essays. I understand the difficulties that exist for GCSE and A-Level History students and I believe my experience will help to push students to understand the main points to work on when preparing for an essay or exam.

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.

Political Science 101: Introduction to the world of discourse
Political Science is the study of the nature, causes, and consequences of collective decisions and actions taken by groups of people embedded in cultures and institutions that structure power and authority. From the ancient Greeks to the present day and beyond From small-group collective decisions, through cities, to countries, all the way to global governance From the most despotic regimes to modern mass democracy to theories of better forms of political organizations From self-interested to group-oriented to altruistic behaviour From political stability to radical change Political Scientists understand, interpret, explain and critically assess events, patterns and structures of politics and government and generate observations of relevance to policy makers, their fellow citizens and global communities.

My on-line classes are aimed at university students who have to prepare for exams in history (world history, european early modern or modern history, middle age european history), high school students and subject enthusiasts interested in studying history for what it really is: a science. I also offer, after ten years of academic and informative writing, Italian lessons for beginners and speaking sessions for advanced. Working language for the lessons: english or italian. For french speaking friends: I also speak french but I do not know if I can take a lesson in your language, so if you also speak english or italian could be better for both. Thank you for the attention.

History Tutoring for students of all ages - from School Exams & Essay Writing, to Advanced Discussions & Debates
Having studied History throughout my academic life, both at school and at university, I now specialise in providing support for students of all ages. Whether you're preparing for an exam and need structured, results-based teaching, or prefer to have a more casual environment for discussion, I offer an engaging range of lessons focussing around a variety of historical periods. The lessons will focus on the periods of history that the student is primarily interested in, whilst also developing a greater understanding of the various historical methodologies that can be used more broadly when examining the chosen periods and themes.

Isabella
Online History tutoring for GCSE and A Level Students
I have recently finished my 2nd year at University of Southampton studying Ancient History and History where I have achieved a constant 2:1. I will give lessons to students, especially those doing their GCSE`s and A Levels whom are struggling. It can be lessons in History and even Classics since I have studied many different Classics texts during my Ancient History modules. My teaching method is taking apart exam questions and talk through with the person what the question is expecting of them and what to write for it. I will also go through different revision methods to find out which one is best for the student, while working with the students' teachers on how to add to what they have been doing at school. I pride myself on my patience with students by letting them go at a speed they feel comfortable with and finding the key resources that will help them achieve their best. You will learn how to write good essays and how to interpret sources the correct way without simply copying the information from the source.

Since 2011, I have worked with all ages from primary children through to adults. The settings have included colleges, schools, community centres and clients' homes. My practice has also varied from one-to-one support to teaching small and large groups. I love having variation in my work, hence teaching several different subjects.

I since then taught from curricula including KS1-KS3, GCSE, A-Level, Undergraduate, Functional Skills and SEN. HISTORY - I studied History as my minor at university. I have since then taught privately at GCSE. EFL - I have tutored for ESOL and EFL in colleges, summer schools and privately. Levels have ranged from Beginner to Advanced levels. This has ranged between children and adults. GUITAR - I have given guitar lessons to beginners of various ages in both groups and one-to-one.
