About Isaac

Enthusiastic Politics and History of Art Tutor.

I am a recent graduate and have previous experience.

After attending Eton College in Berkshire, I journeyed north to the University of Edinburgh, graduating with a 1st class (MA Hons) degree in Art and History of Art in 2015. I believe myself to be a passionate and articulate speaker, with a desire to help students when they find things difficult. I overcame dyspraxia to achieve excellent academic results and appreciate that, at least at first, not everyone finds things easy. However, I have confidence that with diligent graft anything is possible.

I am familar with and happy to work with students studying the following subjects, exam boards and syllabuses:

AQA History of Art 'AS' and 'A2' Level
History of Art Pre-U
Edexcel Government and Politics 'AS' and 'A2' (American Politics and Ideologies)
Art 'GCSE', 'AS' and 'A2' Level (All exam boards)

When not tutoring, I like to paint, run marathons, travel, read literature or watch independent cinema.

Isaac Nugent - Excellent Politics Tutor

Written by Sheila M
We have had a lot of experience with tutors over the years and Isaac Nugent stands out as one of the very best. He has in depth knowledge of his subject but also has a clear understanding of the importance of distilling information to reflect the precise contents of the exam specification, which in our case was AS Level Edexcel Government and Politics. Isaac is excellent when it comes to revision technique and study skills, which means he is able to impart the relevant subject information in a way that is both manageable and memorable. He is extremely clever, subtly tenacious and very patient – a great tutor.
Subject:
Politics
Outcome:
A disillusioned pupil is now enthused by his subject – exams pending.

Brilliant tutor!

Written by Angel J
Isaac Nugent is a brilliant tutor who helped me achieve an A in AS Level OCR Religious Studies. After just a few sessions with Isaac, I felt as though my knowledge of the subject had massively improved. His interactive teaching methods ensured that everything I learnt with him was consolidated during the lesson, which meant that revision was far from stressful. Isaac also presented the subject information in a very concise and memorable manner which made learning less difficult and more enjoyable. He is also polite, friendly and open-minded - I found our theological discussions to be very intriguing!
