As an experienced teacher, I am able to provide one-to-one or online tuition in history from GCSE to A level and beyond. I can provide support for students in essay writing, exam technique and coursework submission. I am familiar with exam curricula, moderation and mark schemes.

For the support of university undergraduate courses, my specialism is early modern history, particularly of early modern politics and the Reformation. I am happy to advise students throughout the humanties on generic skills such as reading for research and essay writing.

I have experience of tutoring English at Key Stage 3, English Language GCSE, English Literature GCSE and History GCSE.  Recent students have reached a 9 (A* equivalent) in English Language, a B in English Literature and a B in history.  The topics that I have taught include Romeo and Juliet, Of Mice and Men, A Christmas Carol, Macbeth, An Inspector Calls and poetry; language techniques, structural features, speech writing and letters; the origins of the First and Second World Wars, the Vietnam War, Indian independence, civil rights in the US, independence movements in Africa, Weimar Germany and the Rise of Hitler and the Nazis.

I am also able to teach singing, beginner’s flute and ABRSM grade 5 theory to students from the Preston area.
