Mr Whiskerd has been an immense help to my studies over the past two years. As a passionate and highly knowledgeable tutor, he has been integral to improving my grades and ensuring I truly understand the material I am studying, whilst remaining receptive to anything I have found difficult. With his guidance, I have been able to gain a better grasp of subjects I had previously struggled with through our weekly sessions. I am ever so grateful for his help - it has been invaluable. Thank you so much! Dr Charles

Jake has been one of the most supportive and helpful individuals for my daughter's journey through A-levels. His determination and calm demeanour gave my daughter the confidence and motivation to improve her ability in a subject she didn't particularly like, History. I would highly recommend all parents to consider Jake in helping their own children through such a highly stressful and difficult time like A-levels. Mrs S Barden

History Tuition in Dorchester

When we took our eldest son out of mainstream education, finding the best teachers for him seemed a daunting task. He had lost interest in most subjects. Dan was and continues to be a breath of fresh air in his approach to teaching! Our son is a history enthusiast now! He sits and tells us about the topics hes studying with Dan and has a genuine love for History because of the relationship he has built with Dan. Thanks for igniting this in him Dan!

Joel was amazing with my son in sixth form. He took the time to understand the focus areas and ensured that no time was wasted. A big part of Joels approach included making sure that my son felt confident in what he was doing, and this made him more comfortable applying himself. Joel managed to get my son the geography grade he needed to get into university when it wasnt looking likely after his mocks. Thanks so much! Mrs T

Hi there, my name is Dan Elson and I am a History teacher at Marling School in Stroud, a grammar school with mixed 6th Form. I have been teaching History for 11 years to Key Stages 3, 4 & 5, and Politics for 2 years at A Level (KS5), so I have an extensive subject knowledge, with specialisms in a number of areas, such as The Middle East 1908-2011 and the Early Tudors. History is consistently the most popular option subject at my school, with 100% A*-C at A Level last year. I have performed public sessions in Bristol, for example about the Vietnam War, as I really enjoy sharing my passion for the subject. I love teaching, supporting learning, and helping people to see the themes and lessons of History. I have previously provided tutoring opportunities for selected GCSE & A Level students requiring support within my school, so have experience of additional sessions beyond the classroom.

History Tutor Online

I have been a qualified secondary English teacher since 2017, and in that time, I have worked exclusively in 'Outstanding' state schools, and an independent school rated 'Excellent' by the ISI. As a teacher, I've always done my best to make English an accessible subject for everyone while using my advanced subject knowledge to challenge every level of learner. My classes' exam results have been consistently excellent, and I have been lucky enough to receive highly positive feedback from pupils, parents and colleagues. Throughout my teaching career, I have also worked as a private tutor, working with all levels of learners at widely different points in their education, from playing silly word games to aid KS2 spelling and grammar basics to helping a college student achieve full marks in their A-Level coursework, comparing the work of EM Forster and the poet John Agard.

We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a History tutor coming to your home in Dorchester to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the History tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the History tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the History tutor is required to travel to your home, in Dorchester. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your History tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your History tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of History tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group History tuition in Dorchester depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
