Very experienced 11+, English, History, Psychology, UCAS application and essay writing tutor in London

Methodology

I believe that a genuine interest in course content is the way to attain the highest grades. My own enjoyment of my studies allowed me to attain 297/300 in my Psychology A-Level and 295/300 in my Politics A-Level, and I always work to foster a real connection between students and what they are learning.

My approach is also underpinned by the student’s need for clarity. In my experience, exam success often rests on the student understanding what is required of them.

My experience of working as a Child and Adolescent psychotherapist also informs my approach to tutoring. I believe that child development and emotional factors like anxiety can really affect how well a student is doing. I have seen many times that if these difficulties can be understood, the barriers to a student's success can be removed.

I am a highly experienced and friendly 11+, GCSE, A-Level and degree level tutor. I have been preparing students for exams for seven years and have learnt how to help each individual get into their choice of secondary school and achieve As and A*s.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach English and Maths for 11+ and 13+ exams. I teach English, Sociology and History GCSE. I teach Health and Social Care BTECS. I teach Psychology, Politics and History A-Levels. I work with undergraduate and postgraduate students, equipping them to write excellent essays. I have been trained by university admissions tutors to work with students to write outstanding personal statements and take students through all other aspects of the UCAS application process. I know what students need to attain Russell Group university offers.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I got 8 A*s and 2 As at GCSE. I got three As in my A-Levels (before it was possible to get an A*!), attaining 297/300 in my Psychology A-Level and 295/300 in my Politics A-Level. I got a First Class degree from Bristol in History and a Merit from UCL in Social Anthropology. I recently also completed an NHS based training in 'Working with Children and Young people' at the Tavistock and Portman.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I tutor at home and can travel to students' homes in Harringey, Islington, Camden, Hackney, Hampstead, Crouch End, Tottenham, Seven Sisters, Old Street and Angel.

- When are you available?

I am flexible during the week.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach children and adults of all ages.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams, SATs, GCSEs, A-Levels, BTECs, undergraduate degrees and postgraduate degrees.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am able to tutor online for all subjects.

Background

I am a very experienced tutor and have helped many students get into their first choice of school or university. I have also supported students to increase their grades by multiple grade boundaries to achieve As and A*s in public exams.

I have tutored throughout my career, working with primary school students, and preparing students for 11+ and 13+ entry, GCSEs, A-Levels and university exams. I have an excellent track record of supporting students to raise their grades for public exams. I really enjoy working with children from Key stage 1 all the way up to degree level. I have a great deal of experience working with children who have Special Educational needs, ADHD and ASC.
I have also worked as a school based English, Psychology, History and Politics GCSE and A-Level tutor. I have led full courses in English GCSE, R.E. GCSE and Psychology A-Level.
I have been trained by university admissions teams to help students write UCAS statements and have much experience of this. I know what students need to attain Russell Group university offers.

My experience of working as a trainee NHS Child and Adolescent psychotherapist means that I am highly experienced in working with teenagers who are finding it hard to focus or are feeling lost or demotivated in relation to their work.
