Hi! My name's Halima and I'm currently a final year History and History of Art student at the University of Birmingham. I love all periods and all types of history but I particularly specialise in Modern and Contemporary History as this will be the focus of my upcoming Masters. So, anything 1700 onward, I'll happily discuss in thorough detail!
I have previously mentored students for GCSE History and A Level History, in addition to moderating some coursework and exam scripts in schools where I have conducted placements. I'm up to date with the latest courses and am able to cover a vast variety of modules, whether it's British Colonial India, or the History of Medicine or even the American West, there are no modules, courses, or degrees that I am unable to cater toward.
I have also mentored A Level History of Art students and thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. I have explored and researched both the Italian and Northern Renaissances in addition to Modern and Contemporary Art over the course of my degree, and so am able to cater to a variety of themes, periods, and movements.
Prior to my History and History of Art degree though, I did study a year of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Birmingham as I have a strong background in Maths and Physics and so currently tutor primary school and GCSE students in mathematics. I have also previously mentored students for GCSE English Literature and Language. I like to keep myself open to a variety of subjects as life is all about learning and exploring interests!
Don't worry though, I'm not all about the books! In my spare time I practise Mixed Martial Arts (brown belt grading coming soon!), and work as a 'public speaking coach' to deliver confidence-boosting workshops to a variety of venues and audiences.
I believe that learning is essential, but it is essential to be fun and above all engaging. Take a lesson with me and I promise to use a variety of resources ranging from handy YouTube clips to interesting articles. We will work hard but overall it'll be an enjoyable experience to help get you the results you need!
