Personal Description:

I am a highly experienced mature tutor with many positive reviews and references.

Professionally I am a senior manager working in government based in London and have five years tutoring experience. My academic qualifications in politics are supported by extensive professional experience working within local and central government. I provide that sought after combination of in depth academic knowledge with 'on the ground' relevant and extensive practical experience.

Many of my clients comment on this being a significant factor in why I was chosen above other tutors. What a client gets with me is the 'reality injection' plus the academic critique and discussion coupled with life experience. What a client will not get is endless powerpoints and handouts - but quality teaching, and in depth knowledge from a professional with an insight as to current political issues in the UK and abroad. I am part of the system and know how it works both practically and academically !!!

Tutoring Experience:

I have extensive tutoring experience of A Government and Politics and a proven track record. I can provide references from recent/current students and parents. You will find me honest, open and totally trustworthy.

The last round of exams (August 2016) my cohort of 6 students students achieved the following grades - 2 x A, 4 x B and all got their university places and all improved on their predicted grades by at least two grades - one went from a U to a B. I can provide personal contact details and references to verify this and the quality of my work. One of my last students said 'Its such a breath of fresh air to be able to chat about US political systems and immediately understand it - I can't do this at school'. I only tutor limited numbers of people to ensure quality service.

A significant amount of my client base is built up through recommendations from previous clients. I also tutor for UK Citizenship tests.

Tutoring Approach:

I provide tutoring on a 121 basis but am totally flexible depending on the tutees needs and will undertake online tutoring. I tutor to the subject syllabus, with the added value of my experience, expertise and contextual detail on current political and social events being included.

It is always difficult inviting a new tutor into your house, but you will find I am relaxed, friendly, totally adaptable and totally reliable. My clients comment they can set their watch by my punctuality! I am available most evenings and all weekends but with sufficient notice I can also tutor during the day.

Included in the fee is full email and telephone support - no extra charges !! My previous clients will provide examples when I have moved appointments to deal with panicky students at exam time and not charged for the session. In addition the first consultation is free of charge for you to meet me and ensure that I am suitable for you. There is no high pressure sale! I will travel most places but if it is a substantial distance will add travel costs. I am 100% committed to ensuring students get through their exams - it's personal pride for me.

But please book early !!! There is no point trying to secure a tutor in April/May for exams 4 weeks later - it doesn't work!!!!
