Leeds History Graduate tutoring in the Leeds area, specializing in the British Empire

Methodology

I like to engage the student and build a positive relationship with them. Following the set curriculum and preparing for exams is very important, as is writing essays for practice or for coursework. So is aiming to genuinely understand the subject matter and to engage in critical thought and explore around the subject. On top of this having fun while doing so is vital.

Background

I am a recent graduate, in History from the University of Leeds. Tutoring is something I am interested in as I taught six subjects in English at an Indian primary school in 2013-14 between school and university, and this is something I want to get back into.
I have been tutoring up to nine students, throughout the week, for the past 18 months, and have totalled 530 hours. This has predominantly been of English and English Literature, though I have also helped with History and the analytical skills and skills of written communication are transferable. In addition, History is my degree subject, so I know and understand it very well.
