Reading History Tutor

Throughout my career to date I have endeavoured to bring great enthusiasm to all of my teaching and tutoring. As a result the vast majority of the students that I have tutored have gained high grades at GCSE and A-level, and most have continued to be successful in their university studies. While studying for my PhD I taught classes for two years to first and second year undergraduates at St. Andrews. I have also taught language classes to adult learners at Reading University Summer School, involving both beginners and intermediate students, and I am used to catering to the needs of students at various stages of their learning. My style is relaxed and I always aim to make learning enjoyable while promoting academic progress. I also encourage active participation and believe in allowing all students to comment constructively on their own progress and the different activities undertaken in lessons and tutorials. I can tutor students in English, French, History, Latin, Ancient Greek and Classical Studies.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Miss Hayley P on Sherpa and I am extremely satisfied with my experience so far. She is a highly skilled and dedicated tutor who has helped me improve my techniques in analyzing poems for my English GCSE this summer. Her deep understanding of poetry analysis and effective teaching methods made complex concepts easy to grasp. I highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking tutoring for English Literature. Lina N

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

Online History Tutor

Since I was at university, I have taught individual students a wide range of subjects. I have taught many neurodiverse and homeschooled students and enjoy helping those who have previously not enjoyed the best experience of education. I have taught in colleges and senior schools, but most of my career has been in prep schools, where I have taught a very wide range of academic subjects, as well as being a Head of Classics and taken a full role in all aspects of pastoral life. My individual students have received tuition in the evenings, at weekends and in the holidays. I put the needs of the student at the centre of my work and try to make the whole experience positive and interesting. I have taught some families for nearly twenty years, sometimes over more than one generation. I am happy to travel to students' homes or to teach online.

Qualifications:
MA Classics, Oxford University (1976). PGCE Classics and English, Oxford University (1974). BA Classics, including Ancient History and Philosophy, Oxford University (1973).

There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our History teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. 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 Reading 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 Reading. 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 Reading 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.
