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.
