« On the way home from Keith's lessons, my son would chatter away enthusiastically about all that he had learned. It was always such a pleasure to see my son suddenly feeling more and more positive about his learning. With a forecast grade of an 'E', my son went on and passed his GCSE exam with a few marks off an 'A'. I can honestly say that it is amongst the BEST money I have ever spent! »

Keith - Crowborough - History

Methodology

I have over 25 years experience of teaching both Economics and History at A level in schools and as a private tutor. I also teach Politics at A level. I have an excellent record of students achieving top grades and will supply references on request.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Economics
History
Politics

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I have an Honours degree from York University and a PGCE to teach both Economics and History from Leicester University. When I took A levels myself I achieved A, A, B, B, C as well as S level distinction in both Economics and History. (certificates available on request). I keep up to date with changes in all relevant syllabuses e.g. last summer I attended AQA courses about the new Economics syllabuses.

- How much do you charge?

£25 introductory lesson
£48 per hour
with a discount to £45 per hour for 5 lessons paid in advance
and a further discount to £42 per hour for 10 lessons paid in advance.
Small group tuition on request (£28 per person if 2, £20 per person if 3 - 5, £15 per person if 6 or more.
All rates per hour taught (and are inclusive of marking, notes, revision exercises, example essays, predicted essays etc. undertaken between lessons)

- Where do you teach?

All weekday afternoons and evenings and Saturday daytime.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

A level
University level
GCSE
Common Entrance

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

AQA Economics
Edexcel Economics
OCR Economics
WJEC Economics
AQA History
Edexcel History
OCR History

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have a proven track record of students achieving a clear understanding and top grades. You might find a cheaper tutor but I do not believe you will find a better value tutor with whom you will cover so much so quickly and thoroughly or with whom you will improve your grades so dramatically.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught Economics and History since 1990. I was responsible for introducing History and Economics as A-level subjects at Waddesdon Secondary School Buckinghamshire and am currently responsible for A level Economics and History at Sackville School Kent. At Sackville School, which is noted for its small class sizes, last year Economics students achieved A* and B (ALIS predictions of C) and the year before Economics students also achieved A* and B (ALIS predictions of B and C). I have written textbooks both for Economics and History and have very wide experience of tutoring AQA, Edexcel and OCR Economics and History. I was an A level examiner for AQA for over a decade.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I have a PGCE in teaching History and Economics from the University of Leicester.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

As well as A level students who are seeking extra help with their courses at school I also have one student who left school last year and is studying purely with me to get the top grades they need for their chosen university and a 44 year old who is taking GCSE and A level Economics in order to then go on to study a PGCE with a view to teaching themselves.

On the way home from Keith's lessons, my son would chatter away enthusiastically about all that he had learned. It was always such a pleasure to see my son suddenly feeling more and more positive about his learning.
With a forecast grade of an 'E', my son went on and passed his GCSE exam with a few marks off an 'A'.

I can honestly say that it is amongst the BEST money I have ever spent!
