« Finn has been tutoring my son to support him with his work towards Nat 5 English. Finn has been great and we would highly recommend him. He is very organised and my son says that he explains things very clearly. He has a very pleasant manner and has built good rapport with my son. I am delighted with the work he has done as a tutor for my son and would recommend him to others. »

Advanced Higher Student offering in-depth support for all aspects of SQA Higher Modern Studies

Methodology

I will establish what the strengths and weaknesses of my student are before developing an individually focused set of lessons in which important aspects of the course are discussed. This includes exam technique and the correct way to answer questions, essay writing tips and organising strategies, how to improve your assignment piece and how to organise notes. I will give in-depth feedback on essays and worked answers, and can provide a huge number of resources, notes, writing-guides, etc.

Experience

I am a top Philosophy and English student living and tutoring in Edinburgh. I am well placed to offer support in multiple subject areas as evidenced by my top grades and awards, and my recent students have all seen significant improvements with their work when receiving lessons from me.
