Philosophy / Critical Thinking
**Discounted rate: recently returned to FirstTutors**
I am a Master of Economics, Business Studies and Philosophy at one of the country's most prestigious and historic public schools.
In this role I teach six days a week, as well as coaching rugby, basketball and athletics.
It is a very busy life, but I still find time to tutor, play rugby, read (mostly nonfiction) and do my best to experience the delights of London with my other half!
Having spent the last three years perfecting my craft in the classroom, I have come to miss the extra attention I am able to bestow onto my pupils through private tuition.
5 years' experience
An abundance of outstanding references from clients and employers
Proven history of dramatic improvement following my intervention, an increase in 2 grades as standard, (C-A typical)
Well over the much-quoted '10,000' hours experience in education
A true professional and student of this vocation

Essentially, my approach can be summarised by the following:
1) Knowledge. By knowing the subjects I teach, as well as the precise demands and correct technique for each exam board, I ensure my tutees study only the necessary material, and that they understand this at a much deeper level, leading to greater retention rates (and ultimately, higher scores).
2) Rapport. By getting to know the students I teach, in particular, their particular learning style and skillset, I can harness their strengths and bring up any weaknesses.
3) Practice. Through regular exam practice and assessment, students can see exactly how much they have progressed. With detailed feedback. they know exactly where they need to improve. Over time, students gain proficiency and become comfortable with the examination process, building confidence for the real thing.
