  • History

    I got 91% for History in high school. It is one of my favourite subjects ever and a lot of the reason behind it is because throughout my high school career I had excellent history teachers who made the subject incredibly exciting. Because of this I also know how to make history into very exciting stories, making the facts much easier to remember. I have been tutoring history since 2016 with very positive results.
