University lecturer, highly experienced tutor

I am a 34 year-old Lecturer of Politics at the University of London where I teach courses in Political Theory, Ideologies and Philosophy. I also hold pastoral and academic support roles that include being the Director of Studies for first year students as well as the convener of the Politics Study Skills Seminar and the Politics Dissertation Seminar. In addition to my lectureship post, I have been, for the past seven years, a private tutor to dozens of A-level and university students from varied backgrounds and look forward to working with many more in years to come in view of helping more young minds reach their full academic potential.

My teaching motto is that ‘you do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother`. I offer a holistic approach to teaching in seeking to inspire and guide students to reach the essential core of philosophical and political inquiry. My approach to teaching has afforded me the runner-up position for the Peake Award for Excellence in Learning & Teaching, an award offered by the University of London to student nominated lecturers, and to date all my A-level students have achieved, where possible, higher than their predicted grades.

I keenly accept A-level and university students of Philosophy, Government and Politics, Religious Studies, and Political Theory, regardless of their current level of ability.

Enthusiastic and Inspiring!

If I could I would tell every new student of Andreas’ that they are lucky to have him. His passion and enthusiasm for the material we covered matched his professionalism. He taught me beyond the syllabus and I felt as though I was an undergraduate student at a top-class university. His teaching was inspiring and effective – I found myself feeling confident, easily understanding concepts that my peers at school struggled with and wanting to learn more. There came a moment when I realised that Andreas saved my A levels and for that I am very grateful. My only regret is not having Andreas as a tutor sooner.

My fantastic time studying under Andreas

I employed Andreas to teach me study skills, large sections of my politics and sociology degree course and general philosophy.

Andreas has an extremely high level of knowledge concerning the subjects that he teaches and he never teaches a subject that is not within his specific research areas. Andreas’ lessons are extensive, structured, well-presented and are usually formulated to include the very epistemic foundation of the content; a foundation that forms a solid structure to build the particulars of the subject on. Through providing structured lessons and an extensive set of course notes, Andreas equips his students with a knowledge of their subjects that will certainly exceed course requirements.

In light of study skills, during my degree, in the first year, my writing was absolutely abysmal and, consequently, I was achieving an average grade of 45% on my essays/exams. However, once I started seeing Andreas, my grade average went to around 85%+ on several of my modules. To achieve this, Andreas taught me reading and note taking skills; essay planning; sentence and paragraph structure; argumentation and critical thinking. Andreas has an innate capacity to communicate complex ideas in simple terms. Andreas is a brilliant writer himself and, therefore, is exceptionally
good at teaching students how to conceive of and realise the completion of a successful essay.

Andreas' passion, commitment, teaching ability, structured communication, depth of knowledge and interpersonal skills make him a tutor that can change a student’s academic life. During my experience, I concluded that Andreas isn't really a personal tutor for the money, rather, he is in it for the teaching itself, which is personified in his joy at seeing students improve. I quickly realised that Andreas sometimes gained more from our relationship than I did.

Andreas is my a level religious studies tutor

Andreas has helped me in my RS studies for over a year now. He has been a tremendous help! He knows every topic in great depth and our discussions are always engaging, making it easy and enjoyable to study RS with him each week.
Religious Studies
With Andreas's help I was able to get an A in my AS exam, with 100% in the Unit 2 paper and am receiving A* in many of my essays with him this year.

Great, professional tutor

Andreas was my Politics A-level tutor. He began tutoring me after I got a C grade for my AS exams and decided to resit. The result was incredible. I ended up getting an A* for my A-level. Andreas is a master of his subject, he teaches ideas at a depth usual of a university class and prepares you meticulously for the exams. Andreas not only taught me politics but taught me how to build ideas and write coherently and clearly.
