Durham Law undergraduate student teaching English and History from GCSE to A-Level

Methodology

I tailor my lessons to the student, to ensure that I can meet your needs effectively. If we're dealing with complex concepts, my lessons are to guide you in breaking down those concepts into less complex sub-topics, to ensure you have a good understanding. From there, we can build up your skills in knowledge, analysis and evaluation, to ensure you're getting those higher marks.

Background

I am a finalist Law undergraduate student at Durham University who is offering my experience in essay writing subjects to teach in English Literature and History from GCSE to A-Level. I have been tutoring for 2 years, during which my students have managed to improve their grades significantly.
