History with Danny

From: £10.00 per person


 My Bio

I have recently graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA in History, and my passion for the subject is as alive as ever. If history at A Level or even GCSE was just about spitting out sets of memorised facts then things would be much simpler. But in reality, history is just as much about ideas based on the facts, and about having opinions on those ideas. That is why interactive discussion around your understanding of historical processes and periods, with a knowledgeable person, is so crucial for academic success; this method is at the heart of my tutoring style. Of course, being able to communicate and present your ideas clearly is also important, and so essay writing techniques are also part of my lessons. My lesson plans are always varied according to each student’s needs, whether that involves content discussion, essay writing practice, or going through exams questions.

My specialties include (but not exclusive to) the history of Britain (any period), medieval Europe, the Middle East, the Ottoman Empire, Revolutionary France and Japan. I am also happy to teach other times and periods- feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

 My Experience:

My journey as a tutor began in 2021, working in particular with students whose education had been heavily affected by the pandemic. In this time I have developed a passion for sharing knowledge, helping students whose shoes I was in just a few years ago. I am also well adapted to tutoring remotely; despite being behind a screen, I always strive to create good personal connections with students, which allows them to get the most out of my teaching.

I always design my lesson plans to be varied; they include teaching syllabus content, to quizzes and other short activities, to essay feedback sessions, to practicing exam questions together- all tailored to each individual student's needs. Communicating with both the student and parents in order to figure out what each child needs is very important to me.

When starting my A levels back in 2018, I was not considering Oxbridge, or even going to university at all. But with persistent encouragement and reassurance from my history teacher, I found the confidence to apply. In essence, self-confidence is the key, and I endeavour to be the kind of tutor who motivates and inspires their students to believe in their abilities. Whilst students will all embark on different paths in their future, all of them share the fact that they need the confidence to find it- this is one of the chief roles of any educator. I want to use tutoring to help each student find their own potential, wherever it may lead them.

I look forward to working with you!
