19 Jun Undergraduate History Mentoring
Amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, many universities are turning to in-person tuition from September. That’s a wise precaution, but it does mean that undergraduates will feel more isolated than in previous years. That’s why I’m offering online undergraduate History mentoring to my list of services. It’s important to note that I am offering educational support to those studying at a recognised university. I am not providing an online degree course.
University teaching is much more specialised than A Level. This means I can only offer support for time periods related to my doctoral specialism. Some examples include:
The High Middle Ages, including the Crusades and the rise of universities in Europe.
The Late Middle Ages, covering subjects such as the Hundred Years War, The Black Death and the beginning of the Renaissance.
Early Modern Europe, looking at subjects like the Reformation and European expansion into the wider world.
However, whatever period you are studying, I can offer technical and methodological advice. If you’re a fresher, you might want help with essay writing. If you’re a UK student who did A Levels or the IB, you’ll have done basic essay writing. Those from elsewhere might not necessarily have learnt the techniques needed. If you’re studying a medieval History course, you might want help with palaeography.
Many of these things may be provided by your university, college and/or lecturers. I’m here for those who wish to have additional support for their studies.
How is support offered?
Mentoring takes place through online sessions, either of 30 minutes or an hour. If you feel you need more than an hour, you can book another session, but I’d advise against back-to-back sessions. They are tiring and therefore unproductive. It’s better to book later the same day or another day. The best way to book is through my Facebook appointment service. If you don’t have Facebook, email me to check availability. Sessions take place using software that’s available to all. I prefer Skype, Zoom, or Google Meet.
