Personal Description:

Former Head of Politics (and teacher of History) at Merchant Taylors' School in London, one of the top twenty schools in the UK.

I am now a freelance writer and election observer for the Foreign Office. I also provide inspirational Sixth Form talks at dozens of schools about international and British politics.

When I was a full-time teacher, my students consistently gained some of the highest grades in A Level Politics in the country, with A* percentage above 50% in some years (national average is 7%). My last class of GCSE History students had 100% A*/A success rate (national average 27%).

Tutoring Experience:

Ten years of teaching experience at one of the best schools in the UK. Trained in teaching at the University of Oxford. Masters in International Relations from the Universities of Cambridge and in International Politics from the University of Edinburgh. My undergraduate degree was in Politics from the University of Exeter.

Winner of a national prize (the Paul Hope Award) for one of the most inspirational extra-curricular activities in England.

I have also taught English as a Second Language in Egypt, South Africa and Romania.

Tutoring Approach:

Exam technique, as well as knowledge, is key. I specialise in how to communicate knowledge and deploy skills in a way that enables the examiner to award top marks. I am particularly good at stretching academically gifted students towards the top grades and preparing them for the next level of their studies. My students frequently gain full UMS.

I also provide Oxbridge and Russell Group Personal Statement advice and proof-reading and interview preparation.
