I have three years’ experience tutoring the humanities in person and online. I have an excellent track record of preparing students for English and History to GCSE, IB, and A-Level.
In Summer 2016, I helped a student go from a D to an A in A-Level History resits. The previous year, one of my students went from a U-grade mock to a B in GCSE English in the space of 6 weeks.
In addition to my BA in History from the University of Cambridge (2013), I hold an MA by Research in History and Music from Durham University (2015, AHRC Scholarship).
Elizabeth's last completed GCSE History job with Maria: 2_HOURS - Prepare a bright, enthusiastic homeschooled student for november 2018 examinations. Will be responsible for planning and teaching curriculum. Student lives in Bali, Indonesia , and because of time difference we can be very flexible. A playful, sunny disposition is a bonus.
Elizabeth's last review in GCSE History from Maria: Industrial Revolution amazing
I am a qualified and experienced history teacher as well as A Level examiner/marker. I have taught students to the highest level, achieving grade 9s at GCSE and A*s at A Level, including those who have found elements of the subject challenging. I have also taught the coursework element of the A Level, with my marking being described as 'exemplary' by the moderators. History is a subject that everyone is able to succeed in and I believe in making the tasks seem as simple as possible, breaking down exam techniques into easy strategies and focusing on useful, relevant content. I have a Master's degree in history and am currently studying for a PhD, focusing on 17th Century England. I have experience of teaching the following topics: Edexcel GCSE: Cold War, Nazi Germany, Elizabeth, Crime and Punishment, Post-War Britain. Edexcel A Level: Stuart Britain, Elizabeth, Coursework. AQA A Level: Stuart Britain.

Thomas's last review in GCSE History from Kamla: Crime and Punishment My daughter says he’s a v good history tutor and will get her through her gcse
She finds that academic success is best achieved when students are really engaged with their subject. Georgie enables her tutees to get the grades they want but also teaches students to read deeply; skills which will benefit them throughout their education and later life. She finds that such a focus also helps students develop lateral thinking methods, important for Oxbridge interview.
She has wide experience teaching a range of subjects and syllabuses - from Primary to Undergraduate. She is experienced with a range of exam boards including Edexcel, AQA, Pre-U, OCR and WJEC.
Georgie's last completed GCSE History job with JoNo: Intensive - Need hot interpretation expert for history gcse. My Y10 daughter about to take end of Year Exams and still “can’t get it” in terms of how to do an interpretation. Need help urgently!! OCR exam board.
Georgie's last review in GCSE History from Victoria: Really nice and explains things really well
I have a broad range of experience in teaching English, Chinese and Spanish speaking students between the ages 4-18 (in language learning, culture and history), so I have good communication skills for diverse age groups and backgrounds. I have been in the English, Chinese and Mexican schooling systems and so adapt well to different learning styles.
My degree at Oxford was in History so I spent a lot of time in the one-on-one tutorials, and so also understand the tutee experience. I am organised and work hard on making my teaching fun and dynamic so that classes are as productive and enjoyable as possible! The relationship between students and tutor is really important for me.

Beatrice's last completed GCSE History job with Ada: -
I recently received my PhD in History at King’s College London. Whilst I would consider myself a historian of modern British, social and cultural history, during my studies at BA, MA and doctorate level I have also acquired expertise in an array of diverse historical eras and themes. I also taught history undergraduate seminars at KCL on various modules including Early Modern Europe, Modern Britain, and History and Memory. During my years teaching history at KCL, I taught hundreds of students of varying abilities and I really enjoyed helping develop their historical learning and sharing my passion for history whilst nurturing theirs. My tutoring sessions are tailored towards the specific needs and goals of my students. Whether these are improving grades, keeping on top of homework, preparation for coursework and exams, or simply needing an explanation of specific concepts, I’m here to provide a session that meets your requirements. I will identify both short and long term issues the student may have with their courses, and establish solutions and goals for solving them. History learning can often be typecast as a monotonous process of memorising dates, speeches and battles, and I want to encourage my students to adopt different ways of thinking about history that encourage critical analysis and varying interpretations of the past.
Christopher's last completed GCSE History job with Susan: 1-2 hrs/week - My son is in Year 11. He had his mock exams results back and he just got a 6 for History. Thus we would need an experienced history teacher/ tutor to help him from now till May. His exam board is Edexcel. Thank you very much!
I have over 4 years of experience as a tutor. I tutored throughout my time as an undergraduate at the University of Oxford both online and in person. Every pupil has different requirements, and I always tailor my lessons and approach accordingly in order to help them develop academically, and hopefully enjoy this process.
During my time as a tutor I have taught a range of subjects to pupils at different levels, including English, History, Maths, German, Latin and Greek. I have had great success helping pupils prepare for their A Levels, GCSEs, Common Entrance and 11+ exams. In terms of helping prepare pupils for admissions exams, I have a broad knowledge of different schools across London and outside of it, and what each one requires of its students.
I graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in History and German. I specialised in Modern European History, with a particular focus on Germany. I will begin studying for an MPhil in Modern European History in October 2019 at the University of Cambridge.
Schools I have tutored pupils for admissions include:
St Paul's Boys School (which I attended)
St Paul's Girls School
Tristan's last completed GCSE History job with Jackie: 1-2 hrs/week - GCSE history tutor for on going lessons, immediate start. Thank you
My name is Andrew Laming an experienced teacher of Geography from the UK.
I have been a teacher of Geography since 2003 and have worked in many successful secondary schools. I have been a Head of Geography in two schools for a period of 7 years. I have taught in a range of different schools from state to girls grammar and an independent school.
I have been an online tutor since September 2016 and am also a face to face tutor as well. I have taught many students and do specialize in A Level. I have also tutored students from Marlborough College, Godolphin School and Mount Kelly School, all prestigious independent schools and have enabled the students to achieve very high grades.
I tutor GCSE Geography and History and A Level Geography and History, and have taught all the main examination boards in my sessions: AQA, Cambridge igcse, Edexcel, OCR & Wjec Eduqas.
I have been for several years an expert examiner for Edexcel for GCSE and A Level Geography. This has given me an inside knowledge as to what exam boards expect and look for in the answers of students.
Andrew's last completed GCSE History job with Jaya: 1-2 hrs/week - Struggling with History at GCSE level
Andrew's last review in GCSE History from Kamla: Introductory chat and trial lesson. She was doing Edexcel, Cold War, Weimar Germany, Crime & Punishment throughout Time and Richard & John. We hope that we can book the same for her in May/June 2019. Friendly, professional and informative introduction (not a lesson).
I've worked successfully as a tutor for GCSE and A-Level students for a number of years now, helping them drastically improve their grades. I've also done considerable work as a university supervisor and mentor for undergraduate, master's, and first-year doctoral students at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, and other institutions. My approach is mainly trust based, my students are often amazed by just how much they can do for themselves if they're in a learning environment that isn't adversarial, oppressive, or plain dull. Beyond A-Level, I also have teaching experience at the University of Oxford as a tutor and seminar leader for undergraduate history and sociology students, and I have degrees in both Archaeology and History. My background of experience is technological, and I work as a civilian consultant to the NASA Ames Human Factors laboratory in that capacity. Central to my approach is an understanding that my students are people, with their own unique strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, which need to be nurtured and supported in order to get the best possible results.
In this way, learning can, and should be of a reciprocal exchange of ideas, and by embracing this in a more relaxed and curiosity-driven approach, it becomes far easier for many to explore, absorb, and abstract their understanding of both the surface learning of school qualifications, and the deep learning of the concepts behind them crucial to getting the very highest grades.
Tobias's last completed
History job with Tehmina:
1-2 hrs/week - History:
I am a professional tutor who graduated from Cambridge with a 1st class BA degree and an MPhil in Education and Literature - I have been tutoring ever since.
I tailor my tutoring to best fit my student's needs and learning style. With extensive experience ranging from primary to undergraduate students, I am confident tutoring for students of different ability and interest levels.
As a published academic writer with experience of private school and Oxbridge admissions processes, I am further confident tutoring to an extremely high level of tuition for a number of top-level schools and universities. Past students have gone on to study at Harrow, Eton, a number of London private schools and of course Oxford and Cambridge, among other universities.
My successes with students are not only due to my own expertise, however, but to my passion for inspiring a love of English in my students as well! During our time together my students not only come to feel more confident in the subject, but also to enjoy it!
