Expert Tuition


I provide expert tuition using over 30 years teaching experience. That’s a lot of tips and tricks to pass on to students. This applies to both the knowledge and the skills needed for success in History exams. I also have two PhDs in History, which brings a depth of knowledge and methodology that only a doctorate gives you. Get the quality education that you deserve!


Hello, I’m Simon and I’m here to help!


Online History Tuition


Book your lessons NOW!


Online History tuition means you can have uninterrupted learning from the comfort of your own home. Whether in London, elsewhere in the UK or anywhere in the world, whatever the circumstances, you’ll never miss a lesson. With today’s technology, there’s no difference from one-to-one lessons in person.


Why choose me?


There are a lot of other companies out there that offer private tuition, so what makes me different? There are three main reasons:


1. Qualified and Experienced


Firstly, I am a UK qualified History teacher, with a BA and PGCE (History & English). I teach GCSE, A Level & IB History. I further provide support for the UK National Curriculum, Key Stage 3, History and English. Secondly, as I also have an MA and PhD in History, I can advise at undergraduate and postgraduate level. Additionally, with over 30 years of teaching experience, you are assured of quality teaching and an in depth understanding of how children learn.


2. Flexible Education for Your Development


Secondly, it’s not just tuition on offer. I make a distinction between lessons, tuition and mentoring. Lessons are for those that want to learn from scratch. Tuition is additional support out of the classroom. Mentoring is advice for those who want reassurance that they’re on the right track. This means that I change the teaching approach to match individual needs, knowing those needs change with time. For example, a student might start with lessons, but as their knowledge, skills and confidence grow, they end up with mentoring. The long-term aim is to make you independent, so that you only need yourself.


3. A Course Designed Personally for You


Finally, this is not just a site that puts you in contact with tutors: I am the tutor/teacher/mentor. This means you get personal and direct contact without the connection fee that some sites charge. I specialise in History and English: keeping it small means I can control tuition directly. The result is that I provide a much more intimate service, with a learning programme designed specifically for you. It also means I can keep the fees (see FAQ) low and very competitive. If you would like English or History lessons online, Contact me with any questions you may have.



Enrolment for Lessons


You are free to enrol for one-to-one tuition at any point during the year. However, if you’re preparing for exams, it’s best to start early in the first term for maximum benefit. Look at the course options available. See my FAQ page for fee details and contact me with any questions. Ready to sign up? Book a free 30-minute consultation via the History Mentor Facebook page, ‘English and History Lessons’ option. Please note that if you’re under 18, you’ll need at least one of your parent’s permission to have History lessons, mentoring or tuition. As recent history has taught us, it’s more important than ever to ensure uninterrupted learning. That’s what online tuition provides.


I also offer assistance with GCSE and A Level coursework, plus IB Internal Assessments and the Extended Essay. In keeping with the rules of the exam boards, I can comment on a draft, but you need to research and write it yourself. You’ll get a great sense of achievement that way!



Online History Mentoring for History Undergraduates


I offer mentoring to new History undergraduates who might feel they need extra help. See my online tuition options for further details.


Proofreading/Copyediting for Academia


I also offer English language editing for academic purposes in all areas of History, especially in the field of Medieval and Byzantine History and Archaeology. I offer proof reading and copyediting services for those preparing a book for publication, as well as for students who wish to publish their dissertations. As a native English speaker, a specialist in the Middle Ages, an experienced academic author, examiner and reviewer, I can provide my expertise to edit your papers to an academic standard. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading. Book a free consultation at History Mentor Facebook or email me.

My fees, starting from as little as £25 per hour for one-to-one tuition (see FAQ – How much does it cost?), are straightforward and include VAT. With me you know you’re with a professional, knowledgeable, qualified & experienced teacher: it really is expert online History tuition. I’ve had QTS status since 1990. Like all teachers who have done a PGCE, I’ve had the proper police checks for your children’s safety.  You will see advertisements on other sites for lessons from £10-15 per hour, then you discover that for exam tuition it costs much more. Also ads may state that you’re getting a tutor from a top UK university, when really it’s a student without a teaching qualification who’s supplementing their income.
