I consider myself to be an empathetic and patient teacher who is always willing to cater to the needs of the individual student. I am a good communicator and am able to explain complex issues in ways which allow students to develop the key skills needed for exam success.

Tutoring Experience

I have taught Economics and Politics for many years at a leading independent school and perhaps more importantly, have a great deal of A level marking and tutoring experience. I an Head of Department and have been Principal Examiner for many years in Politics and Assistant Examiner for Economics. I have been published in various journals and prepare my own resources for A level classes. I am frequently invited to speak at A level conferences and other schools. I have had special responsibility for Oxbridge and university applications and so can also assist with preparation of personal statements, interviews and assessment tests.

Tutoring Approach

I like to bring all my examining and teaching experience into play when tutoring as I believe the end game is fairly obvious in that my tutees want exam success. To that end I tailor lessons to the needs of the student in identifying areas of concern and weakness and advising on how to overcome these. I am able to bring extra materials to classes, written to suit the demands of the new A levels and to give the students that edge that might improve grade performance. Previous tutees have improved upon their expected grade performance.
