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.

Let me help you excel in your coursework and exams!

Tom
A Level History Tutoring: The Crusades, c. 1071- 1204
The Crusades are an often misunderstood period in world history, and this can make understanding them a complex task. As somebody who has studied the Crusades both at A Level and at undergraduate level (indeed, writing my dissertation on an aspect of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem), I feel I am well placed to pass on my knowledge and skills. I am happy to help in any aspect of study, be it in understanding the period, people and events, or with other facets such as exam technique.

English Literature and Language + History for 5-16 year olds
All of my lessons are specifically tailored to the student, what this intends to achieve is a specific course of learning, whether that be through writing practice essays, playing educational online games, writing, and creating flashcards to help remember information, mind maps, etc. If they decide they would like to work on something specific I am very flexible and would be happy to teach! The typical length of my lesson is 60 minutes, the first 10 minutes are to ensure the student is feeling good and ready to learn, as well as to address any marking or specific questions that the student may have about the work given or school material. The second phase of my teaching includes a quick-fire round, by which I aim to engage the student by firing a few questions in order to recall key facts/takeaways from the previous lesson. After this consolidation, I build upon the previous lesson by extending the topic or leading into the next subject. Depending on the student’s ability and focus, I will either choose for them to complete a short piece of work independently or step-by-step with me (they are of course allowed to ask for help whenever!). Finally, we assess the work, tackle any other problems or questions, and then finish with a game or short educational clip. The student may be given additional homework if I feel the material was misunderstood or could be improved upon. I have experience working as a teaching assistant in primary schools from early years to year 6, my work included: organising lesson plans; teaching one-to-one and in bigger groups; administrative duties, and supporting the emotional and social needs of the student. I have only had a few students privately as I would balance them on par with my own education, however, I found this difficult to maintain due to the pandemic, therefore I have more experience with primary school years, but I can cater up to GCSEs.

International Baccalaureate History (Standard Level, Higher Level, Grade 3 - DP2, IB)
I completed the IB DP with a consistent 7/ high 6 in Higher Level History, and this has always been one of my favorite subjects. I am very good at this subject and have somewhat of a passion for it. I have a very good grasp of what is expected from the IB students as pertains to this subject, and I know the ins and outs of the criteria and the weird and wonderful little ways in which the IB expects the students to perform. I am able to help with any course work, homework, assignments, or assessments. As pertains to the DP students, I also did my EE on a History topic so I can assist there if need be. I am also a tutor in English and as comprehensive writing and legibility is a large part of what is expected from IB History students, I can offer particular insight into how to best write and get arguments across.

Ask me about Jamaica! Are you curious to learn more about Jamaica- to go beyond Reggae and Jerk? Its history, people, politics and culture?
Ever wondered about life in Jamaica beyond the lights of Kingston’s allure? This class offers an ethnographic journey of practises and cultures in rural Jamaica, illustrated through photos, songs and videos. Let's explore life in rural Jamaica! Born and raised in a remote rural district/village, I will take you on an authentic journey of first hand experiences- reliving fond childhood memories, the stories my grandmother told me and what a typical day is like. This will be grounded in the history and culture of Jamaica. Coming from a background in diplomacy, sharing about Jamaica's culture and historical experiences has always been essential for opening the door to a deeper unerstanding. I have an avid interest in other cultures and always take the time to explore wherever I go. Having been to South and Central America, Asia, North America and Europe, I know the unique value of such rich experiences. Whenever I was home-sick while posted abroad, talking about my homeland was the only cure. I will share with you all there is about living in rural Jamaica, from different perspectives of my childhood, teenage years and adult life. One unique bit is that the district's enduring small farms form the centrepiece around which everything revolves. Come prepared with a curious mind, and if you want to make notes take your pen and paper or do so on your devices. It is important for me that your are learning, so I encourage you to ask questions. Let's go beyond Kington's enigma!

Sophie
Higher and Standard Level History International Baccalaureate
History in the International Baccalaureate can be an incredibly demanding subject. It requires not only extensive knowledge of historical events, but also skilful strategy and excellent essay writing adeptness. I have designed my sessions to incorporate all three of these aspects by basing the teaching around your work and improvement. This allows me to personalise the lesson to work on the areas which are most helpful for you. I will teach you about essay writing specifically for the IB - the structure which gained me a level 7 in IB HL History when I graduated two years ago. I can also teach efficient revision techniques to retain not only the largest amount of education, but also the most important information.

My performance skills also help me to provide a vibrant and absorbing learning environment.

Tutoring and exam preparation in economics, business economics and history
For students in secondary school, regardless of level or year, I provide tutoring and homework guidance in (business) economics and history, so that the student understands the material better and can get a higher grade for tests. Many schools are only designed in one way that is not ideal for every student. At the beginning I like to talk to the student about what he or she wants to get out of the lessons and what he or she thinks is a pleasant working method. In this way, education is more tailored and the student can make the most of his or her time in a pleasant way.

Learn Armenian language, grammar, literature and history in Western Armenian.
Western Armenian is a language that has been put in the endangered language's list, and I personally believe that such a rich language should never die. I believe that I am taking a huge initiative to be one of the individuals who'll try to save this important language from disappearing. I try to make my lessons as interacting as possible. The lessons and exercises will be provided through PowerPoint presentations. I try to listen to my student in order to prepare the lesson plan together, according to his needs and preferences. I've always been the smiling and friendly tutor who makes the student comfortable during the lessons. I believe that in order to reach the students you need to understand them also emotionally and psychologically.

Australian History- private lessons in analysis, essay writing and exam prep
I have deeply enjoyed Australian 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 Australian history from European arrival, through Federation and the conflicts of the 21st century, through to present day. However am always trying to improve my knowledge of Indigenous history. I have also studied extensively Australia's global relationships over time, with countries such as the UK, the US and China. 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.
