Hi! My name is Isabel and I am currently studying History at the University of Warwick. I am due to graduate with a first this summer, and then I will be going on to study for my PGCE in Secondary Education. I am the first in my family to go to university, and really appreciate the brilliant education I have been so lucky to receive. I would nothing more than to assist young people in also achieving their best, allowing them to fully utilise the fantastic opportunities offered to them throughout their teenage years!
Whilst I do not currently hold any formal teaching qualifications, I still have a huge amount of experience working with young people for someone of my age (20).
I was an assistant leader for both my local Scout and Brownie units for 4 years, only leaving to go to university. Since then, I have volunteered with university in the History department of a local secondary school, and worked at a popular holiday club for the entirety of Summer 2019. The holiday club was with children aged 5-12, so I have plenty of experience with both primary and secondary students.
I have had a passion for history since I was just 5 years old. This has developed into me achieving A* at A-Level, with a near perfect score. However, I have not always been 'good' at history. I found essay writing difficult and it took me years to figure out how to go about structuring my essays. I am living proof that students can achieve way more than they often expect, and I would love to help find that in your young person! History is a subject with the potential to be engaging - let me help to bring history to life and unlock your true potential!
I have recent, first-hand experience of what is required for students working at GCSE and A-Level in UK secondary schools.
I can provide help with essay writing and structure, revision techniques, source analysis, and general content. Having worked hard to achieve my grades, I appreciate how difficult it is for students, especially in the current climate. I would love to help improve the confidence of students as they prepare for their exams and future.
