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 specialize in A Level. I have also tutored students from Marlborough College, Godolphin School and Mount Kelly School, all prestigious independent schools 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 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.
Andrew's last completed Geography job with Hannah: 1-2 hrs/week - I am currently wanting geography tutoring just for myself really. I’m due to start my masters in construction project management in January and I have just graduated as a chartered surveyor. However, my knowledge of geography and my north, east, south and west knowledge is rubbish. I’m just wanting to study geography just to gain more understanding. I’m wanting to do an hour a week.
Andrew's last review in Geography from Natasha: very informative, helpful and interesting
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.

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 when it is needed.
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 Geography from Irene: It went well
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. 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 am presently a postgraduate fellow of the Royal Geographical Society (FRGS) and a student member of the British Ecological Society (BES). I am also the current chair for the Postgraduate Forum (PGF) at the Royal Geographical Society (RGS), where I help the RGS support postgraduate students nationally.
I have previously been a Geography Ambassador for the RGS and visited schools around the area giving talks on the relevance of the subject to society, giving topic relevant talks and trying to promote the study of the subject further.
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 exam board examinations as well as having some examiner experience.
I am now also a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Sheffield. I have taught at both undergraduate level (as a workshop demonstrator, seminar tutor and examiner) to masters level (on an international development fieldclass). As part of this role I have also undergone Sheffield Teaching Assistant Training (studying different educational philosophies and practices) 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, which may be accompanied with a powerpoint 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 marking these and providing feedback , if required.
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.

Carlota's last completed
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.
First and foremost, I am a Geography teacher and tutor in the North West. In addition, I have intensively tutored several pupils in Cambridge, in a range of qualifications from GCSE English to A2 Geography. I`ve also provided free tutoring to disadvantaged students in the County Durham area, and have further teaching experience with local schools and a language college in Cambridge, and with overseeing degree dissertations and university applications.
I believe that no one method is suitable for every student, and that getting to know who I`m teaching and working out the best way to pass on relevant knowledge are very important aspects of my work.
I`m also very keen on exam technique- knowing the stuff is only half the struggle. Working out how the paper works and highlighting mark schemes is also a crucial element of revision, and historically students have thanked me for taking the time to teach them to think `like the examiner would`.
I look forward to any enquiries.

Based on the excellent feedback I have received from students, both inside and outside the university, and their request to help them with other modules I have also taught courses on History (e.g. History of the Soviet Union, Cold War, etc.) and Culture (e.g. Russian Cinema, European Literature, etc.) thus broadening my teaching area expertise.

Geography job with Madeleine:
Occasional - Hi Yannis,
I have just finished my second year of studying geography at the university of Exeter. I am currently in the process of starting my dissertation. I have a general idea which lies in the field of geopolitics, specifically that of disinformation campaigns surrounding Russia and the Ukraine. However, I am struggling to tie my ideas together and make them pragmatic for an undergraduate project. I wish to start my textual research over the summer but need to refine my ideas first. Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

In addition, I am a qualified fitness instructor (2007) and Strength & Conditioning Coach. I have worked with students in schools as well as with adults both in group settings and on a one to one basis.
