Personal Description:

I am now accepting students for A-LEVEL HISTORY COURSEWORK.

PLEASE NOTE: I am fully booked for weekly politics tuition but do have remaining spaces for A-LEVEL POLITICS EXAM REVISION/PREP starting in Easter Holidays/March (up until exams in June). Please get in touch now to avoid disappointment!

I am still accepting students for HISTORY COURSEWORK tuition however.


I am a recent Cambridge graduate and a current teacher in a private school (where I teach Mon-Tues). I am now accepting private students for the year 2018-19 in politics.

Over 2017-18, I taught the Edexcel board for Government & Politics at AS and A2 level to six private students. I also helped several students undertake their history coursework. All achieved A*s in their final grade.

I have been accepted to Cambridge twice and can therefore assist with personal statements and interview technique. Furthermore, I have been sitting exams for the last fourteen years and am therefore well equipped to help students learn and master exam technique. I also specialize in editing and improving coursework.

I have my profile up on a few sites - but can provide a recent reference/review if required!

Tutoring Experience:

I currently teach A-Level Politics and History at a private school in Ashtead two days during the week. This leaves me the rest of the week to pursue my private tutoring/teaching. I am fully trained on the latest syllabus and have been DBS (formally CRB) checked.

I have tutored politics for the last few years in the Surrey area, bringing several students grades' up from B/C to A and A* at A-Level. I also specialize in editing and improving coursework and dissertations and have coached several students through the Oxbridge interview process. Moreover, I have three younger siblings, and regularly help them with their work at both GCSE and A-Level standard.

Tutoring Approach:

I prefer to tailor teaching methods to each individual student. I am hands-on however and like to create guides/notes for students to take with them. I prefer to teach rather than get paid to watch students work - although I will set useful exercises to do during our sessions. I am all about exam technique and strategy!

I am also used to working with students with learning difficulties, such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.
