Experienced teacher offering Politics and Philosophy lessons from GCSEs to University level

Methodology

My teaching method is tailored to the student's individual needs and aspirations and vary from working specifically towards a qualification (GCSEs or A Levels) to the deepening and widening of the student's knowledge with the view of gaining access to top class universities in Uk; from the covering a specific topics to the learning of research methods and exam tecnique. I teach home students, but also students of different backgrounds and nationalities helping them to adapt to and master the UK academic system.

Experience

I started tutoring and teaching Politics nearly five years ago after a career as a political adviser in Westminster. My academic background is in Philosophy and my specialism is in Anglo-american Political Theory. Over the past five years I tought to both individual students and in classrooms, in independent and in state-funded schools, in person and online.
