Welcome to the Oxfordshire History Teacher website.
I have really enjoyed the lessons. Alex is a talented and high-quality teacher who motivates his students and does his best to make the lessons interesting. I have benefited greatly from the classes. “A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination and instil a love of learning.” Alex does all three. From him, I have learnt to enjoy history.
We are on a mission to provide online IGCSE and A level History and Politics education.
Who are you?
My name is Alex Kerr, better known as The Oxfordshire History Teacher due to the YouTube channel and online school I started in 2018. I have a B.A. in History, from Oxford Brookes, a PGCE in Teaching from the Institute of Education, a UEFA B coaching Licence from the Football Association and a Diploma in Sports Management and Business from the Johann Cryuff Institute, Barcelona. I am also an author of several books including the IGCSE books, The Changing Nature of Warfare, The Vietnam Conflict and a travel guide to Sicily. I have also lived in Brazil and Italy and have a smattering of both Portuguese and Italian.
What do you do?
I am the founder and director of the Oxfordshire History Teacher, educating students in History and Politics. With my channel The Oxfordshire History Teacher I provide a better understanding of History and Politics. With my lessons, I teach one to one or group classes. For me, it is mainly about creating critical thinkers, passing on knowledge and improving grades.
This site aims to help by offering:
Lessons, tuition and lectures to support your learning.
Ways to improve your GCSE History grades. Looking at Papers, and key events as well as GCSE History past papers. Working on GCSE History Edexcel, OCR and AQA.
Ways to improve your A level History and Politics grades. Looking at Papers, and key events as well as GCSE History past papers.
This is not a magic wand that will fix everything in a second or week. To become a good historian you need to work at it.
‘Practice makes Perfect.’
We will work on what you need to know and what you need to practice on as well as demonstrating what a good essay or answer looks like.
