I have one degree from the University of Nottingham and a masters degree from Kings College London in International Political Economy.
These have given me great skills to be able to impart sound knowledge to all my students that I have had over the years. Students that take Politics tuition with me can be guaranteed that I will push them beyond their their current skillset and ascertain higher academic attainment. Students that I have had, have proceeded to have
degrees in Politics, International Relations, Law and Psychology, as a
result of the consultation that I have
given them for personal statements
for applying to study these subjects at
university. Please do specify if you
would like to have this service.
I am happy to commute all over London to deliver tuition and happy to negotiate a fee that is comfortable for both parties. I am also happy to deliver online tuition.
Please do contact me to discuss further.
I am a friendly and relaxed tutor who employs a methodical and tactical adapted approach to learning. I believe that my approach enables me to relate to my students and helps them to exceed their expectations when it comes to exams.

- How much do you charge?
I am fairly flexible on availability and will be happy to consider your request provided I am not already committed. I'm happy to discuss bulk bookings upon request.
As of 2018 I have instituted a cancellation policy due to some sessions being cancelled at very short notice. Any cancellation less than 48 hours ahead of the time and date which had been planned will be charged at the full price. This covers loss of earnings as there is not enough time to organise tuition for another student with such little notice.
- Where do you teach?
I tutor either online, and in students home. I'm happy to travel to anywhere in the North West London, Central London, South West and North London. I have in the past travelled to places in Hertfordshire, please note such requests incur an additional £10-20 charge to cover travel expenses.
- When are you available?
I'm available Monday to Saturday. Anytime on Saturday and during the week I'm free from 4:30pm.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Intelligence and Performance Analysis
Department for Education
Political Risk Analyst
One to One Political Consultancy
Over 1000 hours worth of tuition given.
Year to date I have tutored over 40 students both face to face and online. I enjoy seeing the progression, growth in confidence and general willingness to learn in all my tutees.
My students have gone on to study at Nottingham, LSE, UCL, Royal Holloway, Exeter Loughborough and many other Univerisities.
- What kind of experience do you have?
During university I was the Head Learning Coordinator for the entry to university programme, Springboard. Here I mentored and guided a cohort of 30 pupils through their GCSE exam preparations.
Since graduating in 2014 I have built up thousands of hours of tutoring experience both through face to face and online tuition.
GCSE and A Level where my focus has been predominantly concentrated:
I have worked with students from many Independent Schools as well as both Selective and Non Selective State Schools. Each of my students has achieved top grades with none gaining lower than a B at A Level and the vast majority outperforming all predictions. I have tutored my subjects for all main exam boards including WJEC and CIE at GCSE and OCR, AQA, WJEC and Edexcel at A Level.
UCAS, Interview Prep:
I have experience helping students work on their personalised statements as part of the UCAS process as well as successfully preparing them for University Interviews and Oxbridge Entrance Tests.
My students have gained admission to the following Universities as of 2014:
Kings College London
London School of Economics
University Students/Adult Learners:
I have assisted students at university with essay refinement and dissertation preparation in a number of fields with recent topics including African Politics, Knowledge-based economies, BRICS and other emerging markets and military interventions. With Adult Learners I am happy to work through any topic area covered by my range of experience, and this can be tailored around the required intensity of academic rigour needed for the students personal interests/study.
I am experienced working with students on the Autism spectrum and with students who have dyslexia and dyspraxia. My approach to tutoring is adapted to suit the needs and requirements of the individual.
I will set my students homework between sessions, setting manageable homework, with adequate time for completion. I often ensure that I have a thorough undertanding of students work load, and will work with them to ensure that their time is being managed effectively. With younger students it is often the case of focusing in on elements of the entrance exams they are weaker with as many students score inconsistently across the four disciplines.
Ideally tutoring should form part of a well-rounded curriculum which incorporates many elements such as sports/recreational activities, museum trips, reading around the subject all of which I will actively encourage during the lessons. I often like to give an indication of how long students would need tuition for. This is to ensure that dependancy on the tutor is discouraged and students are empowered to eventually take charge of their own learning.
Tutoring sessions are varied and include learning, note taking, revision, discussion, exam technique and test questions. These are tailored to the individual student.
I often get my older students to write responses and then show them ways in which the question could be answered or interpreted differently. This allows for increased dexterity therefore building confidence both for class work and examinations. With younger students lots of practice tests and mock questions form the main basis of enhancing their performance.
I always push my students to reach the full height of their potential and it is this continual focus on improving which leads to my students outperforming their expectations and achieving consistently high top results.

Hi Nelma, hope you're having a good summer
I got my results and I got AAAB, and I actually smashed the Politics!!
I got 100 UMS in unit one and 93 UMS in the unit 2
Thanks so much for all your help I couldn't have done it without you !!
am felt that Nelma really valued his thoughts and opinions which helped with the development of his analytical thinking skill. Nelma was quick to establish a rapport with Sam. He felt that she respected his thoughts and opinions which helped build his confidence. In turn this encouraged Sam to develop a mature, self directed approach to his studies
I would have no hesitation in recommending Nelma as a tutor. I felt that Nelma took a genuine interest in Sam and cultivated his strengths.
