Government and Politics
|Hourly Rate||Online Lessons|
After developing a passion for current affairs, I studied for an undergraduate degree in Politics. In 2009 I embarked on a Masters in International Affairs at the University of Exeter where I was awarded a distinction.
I was fortunate to spend one year at an American University where I focused on US domestic and foreign policy, and one month at the Chinese University for Polticial Science and Law, in Beijing.
I now work for a not-for-profit organisation specialising in dispute resolution.
I teach `A` Level Government and Politics. I particularly specialise in U.K. and American Politics although have studied and tutored many aspects of the Edexcel and AQA `A` Level syllabi. Exan results of my students have indicated that the average `value added` has been between 1.5 to 2 grades.
Example 1: A student achieved a D in her `AS` year of the Edexcel syllabus and joined me for tuition to assist her in trying to achieve a B. After tutoring for module retakes and then the A2 level, she went on to achieve an overall grade of a B (including an A in one paper).
Example 2: A student came out of the first year of the AQA `A` Level Government and Politics syllabus with a B. After 3 months of tuition he went on to achieve an A grade.
Example 3: A student joined me for his last year of schooling to provide support for his `A2` Level Government and Politics through Edexcel. He had achieved a low B in his `AS` exams and was concerned that he would not achieve a B in order to go on to university. After tutoring he went on to achieve a high A in his `A` Level.
I also have tutored `A` Level and GCSE Geography. During University I also participated in the Aim Higher government initiative in a former failing school.
During University I studied various facets of politics and international relations, including:
- Social and Political Theory
- International Relations Theory
- American Politics and Law
- UK and EU Politics
- Middle East and Gulf Politics and Economics
- Chinese Politics and Law
- Conflict Resolution and Management
The first aim in tutoring is to stimulate the student's interest by making the topic relevant and to come alive.
The second is a clear assessment of what the tutee finds challenging and tailoring lessons to suit their independent needs and study skills.
The third is testing using previous papers followed by thorough feedback in order for the student to understand where improvements need to be made.
