I'm a 22-year-old woman living with my family in Woking, Surrey. Having graduated from Durham University with a 2.1 in History last summer, I'm currently a writer for a lifestyle magazine. I've spent time tutoring younger students at school, as well as my younger sister, and am looking to help a student over the summer who wants to improve their writing or exam skills. My main focus is teaching students how to approach exam answers. I teach a method that can be applied to any question or topic, a way of thinking about history that markers respond to. I like to get my students to notice the areas of topics that most interesting them. We work on these areas first and learn how to turn observations into developed insights and high-grade answers. Then we move on to the areas of the course the student finds more difficult, or boring, and try to carry this approach across.
