Cambridge PhD student with a passion for history

I am a graduate student and tutor in the final year of a PhD in History at Cambridge. I have supervised (tutored) and lectured on the history undergraduate course at Cambridge, as well as tutoring a number of undergraduates and A Level students privately over the last year.

I am happy to tutor students in history at AS and A Level, and will additionally consider teaching undergraduate students in areas related to my specialisms; this usually incurs an additional fee, so please get in touch to discuss your requirements further if you are looking for undergraduate tuition. I can also prepare students for Oxbridge interviews in history or related subjects - having studied at Cambridge for my BA, MPhil and PhD, and taught undergraduate students there myself, I have a clear grasp of what admissions interviewers are looking for and how a candidate can show these qualities to their best advantage.

Besides tutoring in history, I can assist students with essay planning and writing for a range of other subjects, including the writing task component of the BMAT examination.

I have a genuine love for my subject and love to pass on that enthusiasm to others. In humanities subjects such as history, confidence is just as important as knowledge, and very often this is what holds students back. Consequently I aim to equip every student I teach with the confidence and independence to ask and answer their own questions, to challenge their preconceptions, and to form their own opinions on the subject matter. Besides ensuring that students are comfortable with the content of their courses, I also guide students in how to apply their knowledge appropriately, through a strong focus on examination techniques such as essay writing and source analysis.

If this sounds like the right fit for you then please do send me a message outlining your requirements, and I will respond within 1 working day.

Good tutorial and clearly had prepared well.

Lauren had asked for examples of my work before the session, which meant the lesson itself was fully focused on how to take my work forward. I'd highly recommend her to other students.

Look no further!

I booked a block of Skype lessons for my son a few weeks ahead of his A level history exam to both refresh on areas of content he wanted to recap on and optimise his exam approach. Lauren was an excellent help to him, she took time to understand how to maximise use of the available time and clearly explained things. A good communicator, organised, pleasant and encouraging, highly recommended. Thanks Lauren and best of luck for the future.
