History Undergraduate Tutors

Studying history at undergraduate level is all about independence. But making such important choices can be daunting. Tavistock Tutors are here to help you make informed decisions and help you reach your potential.

We recognise that minimal contact hours can be tough as self-motivation is hard for the best of us, but a Tavistock Tutor can help take the pressure off.

Instead, we like to offer extra support to make getting that First a little easier, whether it’s helping with the odd bit of coursework or creating a study plan to help manage time.

Our expert tutors can bring their expertise and insider knowledge to help you excel. Work towards a first-class degree with Tavistock Tutors.

I work together with the student and their parents in identifying the areas in which they require help. Such close collaboration enables me to me structure the tutorial, link it to the syllabus and make it effective in terms of exam preparation. But, most importantly, it helps me make the learning process as fun as possible! During...

Across all of the different subjects I teach, I always notice the same thing: the main difficulty that learners encounter is getting overwhelmed by what they're trying to learn. It could be that there seems to be simply too much material to cover; it could be that the concepts seem too difficult; it could be that the whole thing causes...

We all differ in intelligence, but intelligence can be changed through sustained hard work. And great tutors motivate their students to work hard by way of their expert subject knowledge, careful preparation, high expectations, friendly rapport – and good measures of common sense and human kindness. My approach to tutoring begins with a candid assessment of a student’s strengths, as well...

I believe that my professional and academic credentials set me apart from other tutors in this subject area. After I received a Distinction in my Masters, which specialised in French and British History of Art, I secured a job as a Curator of a private art collection in London. I worked here for two years acting as an art consultant,...

I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson. I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key...

I believe that tutoring should be creative, rewarding and fun. I have been tutoring at all levels for many years now, and I am passionate about sharing my enthusiasm for the subjects I teach. Every student is an individual. Tutoring is about working to each person's learning style, and find out how to get the best of them, and to help...

Whilst tutoring I would pay particular attention to the needs of each student, and tailor their tutoring sessions to best meet their needs and wishes. My approach to tutoring emphasises clarity, flexibility, and an enthusiasm for learning, within an informal and relaxed yet structured and interactive environment. I use a variety of methods and approaches towards tutoring including working through...

I care deeply about helping people to develop confidence in their ideas and their imaginative capacities and recognise that many of these pivotal moments happen whilst we are still in education. As a practicing artist I know how moving from tender beginnings of ideas into manifesting artworks requires real courage and commitment. Having someone someone you can trust in to...

Confidence and inquisitiveness are to my mind crucial in the learning process. Building confidence and inspiring inquisitiveness thus lie at the centre of all my teaching. I work with tutees to help them develop the skills needed to acquire and deploy knowledge in a given subject, as well as to know how to resolve an aspect of a subject which...
