My name is Andrew Laming an experienced teacher of Geography from the UK.
I have been a teacher of Geography since 2003 and have worked in many successful secondary schools. I have been a Head of Geography in two schools for a period of 7 years. I have taught in a range of different schools from state to girls grammar and an independent school.
I have been an online tutor since September 2016 and am also a face to face tutor as well. I have taught many students and do specialise in A Level. I have also tutored students from many prestigious independent schools such as Marlborough College, Charter House, Godolphin School and Mount Kelly School and have enabled the students to achieve very high grades.
I tutor GCSE Geography and History and A Level Geography and History, and have taught all the main examination boards in my sessions: AQA, Cambridge igcse, Edexcel, OCR & Wjec Eduqas.
I have experience of tutoring international students and have taught students in Athens, Bahrain, California, Dubai, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Kuwait.
I have been for several years an expert examiner for Edexcel for GCSE and A Level Geography. This has given me an inside knowledge as to what exam boards expect and look for in the answers of students.
I strive to get the best results as possible for my students and will always follow the exam board specification used by my students and this enables them to be as successful as possible.

Testimonial from an A level Geography student tutored on Spires.co, March 2019.
"I was extremely lucky to come across Brian. He is an incredible, all in one teacher. Every lesson is well prepared and extra resources are provided. He is up to date with all changes to syllabus and exam requirements. Brian is very friendly and patient, he always finds time to answer my questions even besides lessons time. He has lots of geographical knowledge and experience from all over the world. I am always looking forward to having a lesson with him, it is worth every penny"
I have had hundreds of pupils pass through my classroom and I have an excellent track record with both GCSE and A levels.
Online, I prepare tutoring sessions to the ability and needs of each of my students. I am available between tutoring sessions to answer questions or clarify some points for the lesson. I also set homework tasks and exam papers questions to give you complete support and ensure quick development.
As a qualified teacher, I have years of professional training and experience to offer dramatic help for exam preparation.
I am available for a quick chat if you have any questions and would like to know how I can help.

Brian's last review in A Level Geography from jude: Very good, helpful and knowledgeable, thank you
I am a recent Geography graduate from Cambridge University, Gonville and Caius College. I tutored throughout my time studying at Cambridge and intend to continue doing so as I love spreading my passion for the subject and helping others to achieve the grades they deserve! I also helped out at a teaching assistant whilst I studied for my A-levels at my local high school. I have experience with all specifications and as I achieved 100% in my Geography exams at A-level and GCSE, I can offer sound advice in terms of both exam technique and content! I have also helped undergrads with coursework and dissertations, as well as EPQ projects for A-level. My previous students have obtained A*s, with one going on to study Geography at Oxford and another achieving 100% and going on to study Medicine.

I have 8 years private tutoring experience, over which I have taught, helped and inspired hundreds of students across thousands of hours of lesson time. I have taught both A-levels and GCSEs as well as younger year groups, including preparation for 11+ and 13+ entrance exams. I have experience of teaching the following exam boards: AQA, Edexcel, CIE, OCR and WJEC. Importantly, I am familiar with both the old and new specifications. I have had a very large and diverse range of clients, including SEN students. I have also tutored university students in Geography and have guided them through essay and dissertation submissions and exams.

Kat's last completed A Level Geography job with Sarah: Occasional - I am looking for a Geography tutor to help me to consolidate last years syllabus and go over areas that I am weakest in.

Geography job with Simon :
1-2 hrs/week - I am looking for help with my Independent research project for AQA Geography A level.
My project is human geography based and I am thinking of looking at gentrification and redevelopment in London.
I am currently a PhD candidate in Geography, at the University of Sheffield, researching into the role of partnerships in delivering environmental benefits in UK farming (submitted 1st November 2019, undergoing examination). Prior to this, I was a Masters student at the University of Sheffield, where I studied MSc Environmental Change and International Development, obtaining a merit. I completed my Undergraduate degree at the University of Cambridge, where I studied MA (Cantab) Geography, and obtained a 2.1.
I have experience of privately tutoring a variety of students from KS3 up to University Level and have prepared students for a number of different examinations, as well as having examiner experience at both GCSE and University level.
I have taught at both undergraduate level and masters level at the University of Sheffield, UK. As part of this role I have also undergone professional development and have achieved Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA).
I aim to provide a fresh approach to tutoring. This involves trying to bring the subject alive and always relating the subject matter to the real world, I believe that this makes content much easier to understand and more exciting.
For each session, I shall prepare a series of notes or exam practice questions, which I will supply to the student. I aim to relate all material covered to the exam, as ultimately exam technique will be key to success at these levels. Wherever possible, I will make sure the student understands the work covered through setting a series of tasks and then providing feedback , if required, as part of my session rate.
I aim to be easily available to be contacted by phone and e-mail if extra help or advice is ever needed. I am very flexible and will try to accommodate most student's needs.
Daniel's last completed A Level Geography job with Nicky: Over 2 hrs/week - I am looking for an on line tutor for my 17 year old son during the summer holidays. He has missed some school in the past academic year and needs to improve his grades to get into a good uni.
I have extensive tutoring experience, combining my love for the humanities and social sciences with my passion to help other students succeed. My lessons are engaging and interactive, whilst highly tailored to the student's direct needs. Online tutoring provides a dynamic platform that enables me to develop a unique and productive relationship with my students, helping them to achieve their potential.
