Approachable,friendly tutor

I am a full-time private tutor & educational consultant keen to help children broaden their educational horizons. I have successful placed students into some of the top private schools in the country, This year (2017) I secured two students places in Westminster school on a full scholarship, by helping them successfully compete in the 'Westminster Challenge'
I hold a BA degree with Solid background and firm understanding of both interdisciplinary subjects of History and Politics, ranging from early modern history (1500s) to present day, in addition to a critical understanding of contemporary politics. Including but not limited to British, European and American politics and the political systems that they underpin. My main focus as a tutor is to inspire my student with passion and drive for the subjects to allow them to develop their skills and knowledge within the area.

I work with the student to help them identify areas they find difficult - this allows me to really get to know the student and understand the way they learn. I am able to recognise that different children have their own strengths and weaknesses, different confidences and insecurities, and I always aim to get to know the student first in order to tailor my methods accordingly. Through my lessons, I always aim to build on each students confidence in their own abilities and hope to find ways and methods for them to view the subject matter enthusiastically.

Next, I work with my student to plan what they want to achieve from each session and build strategy to allow them to achieve their potential, in addition to setting them realistic and achievable targets.

Five main factors have contributed to my success so far,

- I have high expectations of myself and my students, I believe every student can achieve the best grades with the right help

- I will build confidence and a “can do” attitude in students, regularly reminding them that nothing is “hard” if you have been shown how to do it properly and give the necessary tools to succeed

- I listen to students, this keeps lessons interactive and ensures I have constant updates on their thought process and current understanding, and believe in student lead tutorials to build a solid learning framework.

- I am young (for now) so students feel comfortable engaging with me and enjoy learning from me in an interactive engaging manner

- I ensure continuous support for students, I am fully available for questions via phone or e-mail throughout the day and early evening to ensure the support does not end at the end of our scheduled tutorial
