I am a qualified Geography teacher and have been teaching since 2011. I am a former Head of Department and have experience teaching various exam boards including CIE, AQA, Edexcel, Educas and SQA both in the UK and internationally.
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.
I enjoy breaking down complex concepts into digestible bites and communicating it to others. I have practiced this skill throughout my career as a researcher and writer. This, combined with a passion for academic achievement, makes me an ideal tutor. I enjoy working with younger people and students and having had tuition while I was at school, feel eager about helping young people reach their full potential. I have experience teaching primary and secondary school children Maths, Science and English. I have also taught English as a second language. Having gained a BA degree from the University of Cambridge and a MSc from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and being one year through a PhD at the LSE, I feel that I can offer excellent advice regarding university applications, personal statements and interview preparation.
