Information About Casey - Highbury tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Casey:
A first class Cambridge graduate, I am studying for a Master's at UCL and will begin my PhD there in Neuroscience next year.
My tutoring focus is two-fold. Firstly, I specialise in School and University entrance (both exams and interview preparation), providing research and polish to secure success in your application. Secondly, I tutor science across the board, and at a range of levels, focussing on conceptual understanding and exam technique.

History – Focussing on essay strategy, I have taught students GCSE and A-Level in intensive lessons that allowed students to cover whole modules starting from Easter for June exams. Focus on Germany, Britain 1780-1846, and Italian Unification.
Tuition should reflect the needs and style of the student. I believe that the power of successful private tuition lies in its ability to provide a tailor-made programme, which is in tune with each client. Tightly structured lessons, which focus on specific goals, is the best approach to producing tangible progress. This, combined with a drive to teach my students the underlying concepts of a subject, is the basis of my teaching method. This helps students expand their understanding and clarity of thought in a subject, ultimately leading to the best results.
