I have considerable experience tutoring before for both in-person and online
Over the years , I have spent hundreds of hours teaching ambitious people just like you, who are not getting the support they need in school to achieve their goals
Consequently, I appreciate that every student learns at their own pace and their own style. Some learn best visually, others through analogy
That's why I take the time to speak with you and learn your specific goals, challenges and learning styles
I then tailor my lessons to maximise your progress and help secure the grades you want!
Adam's last completed Admissions TSA job with Nura: Intensive - Start anytime from now till test day (October 30th).
I have worked as a professional tutor and educational consultant for six years. I have taught dozens of students for thousands of hours in total. I have also worked as a teacher in an independent school in North London.
I have had many successful students; a few examples include:
>Two admitted to study HSPS at Cambridge.
>One admitted to all three of Westminster, Winchester, and St.Paul's for 13+.
>One who gained 84/84 marks in his A-Level Politics Paper 2, which is now being used as an exemplar.
>One who gained an A in A-Level History after being predicted a C.
I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.

Oliver's last completed Admissions TSA job with Nura: Over 2 hrs/week - TSA --section 1 preparation. I have two children who're applying to Oxford this fall and could use some help with section 1 of the TSA. They can start immediately.
I have vast experience of teaching mathematics and further mathematics to A Level, having taught in three different sixth form colleges for a total of 25 years. I thrive when working on maths with learners; it's a subject I love, and the question of how best to communicate it is one that fascinates me. I'm well-qualified; my first degree at Cambridge University (where I won a scholarship) was in Mathematics and Education, and I have an MSc in Mathematical Research from the University of East Anglia. I also have a Cert. Ed. from Cambridge University and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Education from the Open University. I'm a keen member of the Association of Teachers of Mathematics, and I'm constantly trying to improve my teaching in discussion with others.
I have run a YouTube revision channel providing videos on a range of topics since 2013 which has received over 1.2 million views. I have also provided one-to-one tutoring to both GCSE and primary school pupils.
I am very academically capable, having gained a First Class degree (placing third in the year) in Economics and Management from the University of Oxford, 3 A*s in Economics, Maths and English at A-Level, an A in AS Further Maths and 10 A*s at GCSE.

I am a neuroscientist and psychologist by training. The nature of my professional qualification allows for my broad knowledge of natural science, psychology, neurobiology, research methods, and academic writing. Additionally, my PhD at the moment deals with how our brain integrates senses when we see products and labels, so I also have avenues of knowledge and expertise in Marketing and product design.
I have tutored psychology, neuroscience (cognitive, behavioral, neuropsychology), research methods (design, acquisition, analysis, understanding) and academic writing (being able to put all of the above into the high standard writing required from the academic community).
As an Oxford graduate, I can also consult on Oxbridge applications and help students successfully entered their Oxford University career with my help.

Significant tutoring experience - tutoring has been my main job since 2012. I have experience teaching one-on-one in person and online, as well providing seminars, workshops, and coaching in schools and at public events.
I hope my experience in online tutoring has demonstrated that I am sufficiently organised and engaging, to provide an enjoyable distance-learning experience. Online teaching is an unusual medium - both distant and intimate at once. I hope that, over the years, I have learnt to strike a decent balance and provide strong online support.
Thank you for reading my profile. I have taught A Level and IB Economics, A Level Politics and A Level Business Studies for 16 years and my teaching focuses very much on improving the exam technique of my students. I have been tutoring online for over 6 years. I graduated from Oxford University in 2003 where I studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics and I have been a Head of Economics at top independent schools for 8 years. I have also been a Head of Politics. I am a Qualified Teacher.
Teaching is my passion and I love helping my students to gain confidence in their subjects and to develop their independent thinking skills. My lessons are interactive and I demand a lot from my students because I believe in them. Nothing in my subjects is beyond you, if you are willing to break questions and topics down to their small component parts. I will show you exactly how to do this.
My approach to teaching varies from subject to subject and from pupil to pupil, but I can give you an overview of my general approach now. One of my first goals in classes is to teach my pupils how to understand what an exam question is asking. We do this by breaking questions down, word by word. Next, I provide my pupils with a checklist for how to structure answers so that they can access all of marks available. Then I teach my students how to develop their arguments by asking the questions "why?", "so?" and "how?” in relation to their points, which ensures they provide developed chains of reasoning. Lastly, in every class we revise key concepts and I explain concepts in simple terms using easy to understand examples and I make my students do the same.
I have been teaching and tutoring for four years and have acquired a wide range of teaching experiences and skills. These include:
- Assisting politics undergraduate students with coursework in weekly sessions. This involved a focus on both getting to grips with technical content, as well as improving writing style, resulting in a high proportion of first-class grades.
- Undertaking both personal statement tutoring, and providing mock-interviews and interview preparation sessions for Oxford PPE/Economics and Management (including TSA preparation) and Cambridge Economics applicants.
- Weekly A-level history, politics, and economics tuition to a number of students.
