Adam $40-50/hr

History - Newcastle/Cumbria

I am a dedicated and committed teacher of history with 10 years of experience. I completed a PGCE in History at the University of Cumbria in 2009, and spent four years working as an A Level History and Government & Politics teacher at Hartlepool Sixth Form College. I then spent four years at Braeburn International School Arusha as Head of Humanities before becoming Vice Principal. I moved on to spend a year at the British International School Moscow teaching IGCSE and IB History as well as IGCSE Sociology. I also have experience tutoring students for the ACT/SAT as well as IELTS. My students in the past have went on to universities such as Durham, Warwick, Edinburgh as well as Oxbridge. I am now pursuing an MA in History and working part-time in a secondary school in the North East of England.

My lessons are tailor-made personally for you and my average IGCSE and A Level score over the last 10 years has been 80+ A*-C. Every one of my IB History students achieved a Level 6 or above this year. I have a proven track record of excellence and I feel you will find in me the tutor who can make you excel.

Dr Steve $45-55/hr

Doctorate - University College London: Institute of Education; Postgraduate in Philosophy - Birkbeck College, University of London

I have 22 years of experience in tutoring learners to achieve their goals. I tutor GCSE, A-Level, EPQ, IB, PRE-U, Undergraduate, Postgraduate/Doctoral students, UCAS and Oxbridge applicants, and professional clients in Academic Research and Writing, Creative Industries, Critical Thinking, Cultural Studies, Education, Film, Government and Politics, Marketing, Media, Oxbridge Entrance/UCAS, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Theology, Theory of Knowledge, and Social Sciences.

I combine two decades of experience in the education sector with my earlier career in the creative industries to offer engaging learning opportunities relevant to our daily lives.

I invite you to engage in these ways of thinking that can empower you with relevant skills to support your personal growth. I have extensive experience in tutoring GCSE, A-Level, PRE-U, EPQ, Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Professional learners. My presentation style is engaging and interactive.

Dr Steve's last completed Government and Politics job with Zack: Occasional - Hello,

My name is Zack, I am 17 years old and I am currently undertaking a one year course in government politics, I am in a 6th form college and am struggling with the technicalities of the course. For example, essay technique and what to write about when I see essays for example -

"Assess the relative importance of the main factors which determine the outcome of general elections? [30 Marks]"

A current assignment of mine which I know to reference elections from 1979,1997, and 2017 but don't know how to structure the essay.

I am currently aiming for an A/A* grade and I have mocks this Monday, and this Wednesday (one is UK politics and the next is Global politics)

I have 8 hours per week of teaching and am not falling behind but I struggle with the exact way to write essays - it differs from how I write essays in my other a levels (psychology and economics)

I have a final exam in May/ June and need some occasional clarification and assignment help.

There is a lot of content to memorise which I will focus on doing - but the structure of how to formulate things is alluding me.
Thanks!

Dr Steve's last review in Government and Politics from Zack: "Assess the relative importance of the main factors which determine the outcome of general elections?" Essay Great first class! We went over an essay I wrote and we formulated a plan to improve and organise it. Learned where I went wrong and how to improve.

Fraser $45-55/hr

Law - University of Cambridge

I have been a private tutor with Spires for 3 years, and have had many successful clients who have rated me as excellent, including: GCSE Law pupils; Cambridge admission pupils (Law); many A-level Politics pupils (both AQA and Edexcel) and clients in a multitude of other academic disciplines. I adapt my tutoring styles to the client, and I make sure that the pupil fully understands the nature of the content and the exam that they are undertaking. My ratings are all 5*, and my pupils have all been satisfied with my service.

I have been tutoring my younger siblings through their GCSEs and A levels. I helped my sister achieve an A* in her EPQ and I have worked with her to attain excellence in her A level English Coursework. I was a tutor at my Sixth Form college for English, and I have a spent a lot of time teaching my peers how to get to the next grade in Politics and History. I have led revision classes and seminars in my subjects at school, and I am very used to working with people who want to achieve their full potential. On Spires I have tutored in English, Politics and Law.

Jacob $75-85/hr

BA in PPE, 2:1 - Oxford

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.

Jacob's last completed Government and Politics job with Edouard: 1-2 hrs/week - studying; American Politics, International Organisation (IR with a focus on IOs), Political science research methods, Political theory (going through the political cannon). I would need help with topics I may not understand and coursework (essays and book reviews) as well as exam prep

Peter $45-55/hr

MA International Studies - Goldsmiths

I have now been tutoring since early 2006 in History, Politics, Economics and Philosophy/RS. I also work as a researcher and an editor which help me in tutoring revision practice for exam and improving writing for exams and coursework. The majority of my hours have been for History and Politics and mostly at A Level although I have lots of experience with GCSE History and RS. Whilst working at universities I worked in developing graduate attributes for undergraduates and A level students, writing skills, seminar groups and discussion forums and symposium for researchers. I now split my time between Tutoring and research/editorial work in the field of Sustainability. I have experience tutoring the OCR, AQA, Edexcel and Cambridge exam boards and have helped several students gain entry to Oxbridge Colleges.

Ross $40-50/hr

Ancient and Modern History - Oxford University

I have been teaching and tutoring for five years now and have acquired a wide range of teaching experiences and skills. I began when I was still at school by tutoring a GCSE history student whilst I was doing my A-Levels. I also volunteered at an after-school homework club. I would tutor the children on an individual basis, helping them with their homework and keeping track of their progress. I also began to take up classroom teaching jobs, going to Kenya in partnership with the charity Hand-in-Hand to teach English, History and Politics to 14-17 year old students at Mogonjet School.

At university I continued to pursue teaching opportunities teaching at the Keio Summer School for Japanese university students each summer of my undergraduate degree, in which I taught history, debating and drama. I have also continued to pursue teaching opportunities abroad, completing the six week i-Learner internship in Hong Kong in the summer of 2018, in which I taught 12 to 18 year old’s a wide range of topics. In the summer of 2019 I did the Educamp internship in Beijing. I taught at three ten-day camps at Camford Royal School, teaching history, creative writing and sports. I also helped to tutor my Camford home room students for the "My Dream" speech competition in which students competed for a multi-thousand pound scholarship to the school by giving a speech in English about their life goals. The students that I tutored came first and second place.

I have also continued as an individual tutor. During the spring of 2019 I worked for CamExpress, an online tutoring company based in Shanghai. I taught online lessons and created online lectures for 16-18 year-old students who were considering applying to Oxbridge for university, as well as giving advice about the Oxford application process.

Noor $45-55/hr

Social and Political Sciences - University of Cambridge

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.

Noor's last completed Government and Politics job with Natasha: 1-2 hrs/week - I am about to start year 12. One of my options is Government and Politics. My school does the edexcel exam board. I would like a tutor who can help guide me through the course and help me stay on top and ahead of everything. I know essays are my weak point and so someone going through them with me, advising me what I can do better to get more marks would be ideal.

Oliver $40-50/hr

History - Oxford University

I have a great passion for the subjects I teach and a love for passing that enthusiasm and interest on to others. I have tutored students from all ages, from Key Stage 3, and common entrance, through GCSE, A-level to undergraduate level. History is a wonderful subject that offers perspective and challenges you to put yourself ‘in the shoes’ of people in the past; as such this approach is also a useful way of writing thought provoking and successful exam and dissertation answers. I also tutor in Politics, Geography and English as a foreign language. Indeed, having a good grasp of the political, geographical and historical conditions that shaped past events and decisions is essential to answering a question successfully.
