I'm Ellen and I've just graduated from the University of Oxford with a BA (Hons) in History.
I have a fair amount of experience teaching, having spent the past few months tutoring history and geography online and in person, several years before that tutoring my brother, assisting with teaching lower school maths in high school and helping various students with Oxford applications. I'm also a qualified Dinghy Instructor and have taught watersports for several years, so I've picked up a lot of tricks for teaching that you might not expect! The two most important things for success (I think, anyway) are that you're goal-orientated, and that you enjoy what you're studying. With that in mind my lessons will always be built specifically around whatever mark schemes / exam papers you're working with, and hopefully my enthusiasm will be contagious enough you'll enjoy it as much as I do.
I'm obviously very passionate about history, in particular the early modern (especially witchcraft!) but I've studied a wide range of places and time periods and am more than happy to help you with anything you want. I'm also very interested in Geography, which I unfortunately had to leave behind when I went to University but have continued to study in my own time and would love the opportunity to revisit it again. Finally, I'm very experienced with university applications, particularly to Oxford - I've assisted at pretty much every open day and interview period I could during my degree and hope I've picked up a lot of useful knowledge along with way.
I look forward to working with you!
