I am a passionate historian and Gap Year student. I hold an offer to study history at Hertford College, Oxford starting in October 2018 and have just completed A Levels in English Literature, History and Politics, achieving 3 A*s. I am currently working as a Teaching Assistant at a Secondary School and thus have valuable experience marking, teaching and tutoring pupils between Years 9-13. Having only just completed my A Levels this summer, I know exactly what examiners look for and have considerable experience editing and proof-reading work as I have edited several student publications. I thus believe that essay technique is my forte and I possess a meticulous style that could be of great value to anyone who is trying to improve the way they write. I also have a bank of revision resources, many of which are my own, including countless exemplar essays, essay plans and thematic notes. These are well-structured and have proven beneficial to many. I am an avid reader and thus am able to draw upon my own research to aid my teaching of topics that I have not studied at school and am thus very versatile in my manner. I am also able to provide tutoring at GCSE and IB level for English Language, English Literature, History, Geography and Music as well as most Common Entrance Topics. I am a keen musician and also offer tutoring in Composing, Music Theory (up to Grade 5), Piano, Violin, Viola, Organ and Singing, having achieved Grade 8 standard or above in each discipline. My intended career is as a teacher so I am very passionate about learning and helping other people to gain understanding and thus I hope to be a great help to anyone who is aiming to improve their abilities.
George is an extremely thorough tutor, not only for sessions but also with regard to detailed preparation and session follow-ups. I have no hesitation in recommending George.
