USYD Graduate with practical experience gives lessons in Australian and modern world history online

Methodology

I have deeply enjoyed history and historiography from high school, where I received top marks, through university, where we studied history from Australia, the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, to the present, where I still read and learn history on a regular basis. In recent years, I have particularly tried to focus on history retold from the perspective of those left out of the traditional view, which is really just anyone who isn't a white, upper-class, European male. This broader and more complex view of history leads to a more nuanced understanding of the past, particularly from a social perspective.

I try to bring this knowledge to the classroom, to help the student understand history contextually and how it is shaped through an interplay of individual personalities and social, economic and political trends. I work to include as much primary evidence as possible and always encourage students to approach both primary and secondary sources critically, considering the bias and intention of the source. If I'm not familiar enough with the particular aspect of history the student is studying, I will do the necessary research to be able to help them competently. I really enjoy history and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.

Background

My name is Jaye Sergeant and I have been a private tutor for seven years, teaching over 100 students in Australia, the UK, India, Spain, Thailand, China and Turkey. In particular I have experience in exam preparation and essay writing. I have also worked and volunteered in the humanitarian sector for 10 years, focusing primarily on refugee and asylum seeker issues and education. I speak Spanish, advanced French and Portuguese and basic Turkish. In my spare time I love reading and salsa dancing.

Jaye is an exceptional communicator, relationship builder and incredibly patient and respectful to all students from all backgrounds - attributes which make her an outstanding teacher. She has high levels of language and subject matter expertise, not only in her own understanding, but additionally in her skills and ability to distil complex concepts in political science, government, international relations and other subjects, into understandable pieces for her students. This is additionally bolstered through her extensive, international practical and academic experience. Ultimately, alongside her incredibly enthusiastic demeanour, Jaye is able to tailor lessons to the person she is working with, providing effective, long-lasting knowledge, instruction and understanding. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jaye as a teacher and mentor.

Jaye worked as a registered tutor with Tutor In from January 2018 to December 2019. Jaye provided one-to-one home tuition for students aged 11-18 in subjects including: Maths, English, History, Geography and Spanish. Jaye received consistently excellent feedback from her students and their parents. Jaye has excellent subject knowledge in a range of core subjects. She quickly establishes great tutoring relationships with students of all levels and abilities, and from a range of backgrounds. Jaye was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her for future teaching or tutoring roles.
