Kate $40-50/hr

English Literature, Literature and Education - University of Cambridge

I am a professional tutor who graduated from Cambridge with a 1st class BA degree and an MPhil in Education and Literature - I have been tutoring ever since.

I tailor my tutoring to best fit my student's needs and learning style. With extensive experience ranging from primary to undergraduate students, I am confident tutoring for students of different ability and interest levels.

As a published academic writer with experience of private school and Oxbridge admissions processes, I am further confident tutoring to an extremely high level of tuition for a number of top-level schools and universities. Past students have gone on to study at Harrow, Eton, a number of London private schools and of course Oxford and Cambridge, among other universities.

My successes with students are not only due to my own expertise, however, but to my passion for inspiring a love of English in my students as well! During our time together my students not only come to feel more confident in the subject, but also to enjoy it!

Kate's last completed IGCSE job with Freda: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter Alysha will be in Year 11 next term and will be sitting for her IGCSE . She is struggling with her English Literature and dreads to sit in this Eng Lit class.
Hope her tutor is able to cultivate and inspire her interest in this subject.

Andrew $40-50/hr

BA Geography - University of Leicester

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.

Toby $75-85/hr

History of Technology - University of Oxford

I've worked successfully as a tutor for GCSE and A-Level students for a number of years now, helping them drastically improve their grades. I've also done considerable work as a university supervisor and mentor for undergraduate, master's, and first-year doctoral students at the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, and other institutions. My expertise is in university admissions, and I have recently written a bestselling book on History admissions for Oxford, the Ultimate History Aptitude Test Guide.

My approach is mainly trust based, my students are often amazed by just how much they can do for themselves if they're in a learning environment that isn't adversarial, oppressive, or plain dull. Beyond A-Level, I also have teaching experience at the University of Oxford as a tutor and seminar leader for undergraduate history and sociology students, and I have degrees in both Archaeology and History. My background of experience is technological, and I work as a civilian consultant to the NASA Ames Human Factors laboratory in that capacity. Central to my approach is an understanding that my students are people, with their own unique strengths, weaknesses, and abilities, which need to be nurtured and supported in order to get the best possible results.

In this way, learning can, and should be of a reciprocal exchange of ideas, and by embracing this in a more relaxed and curiosity-driven approach, it becomes far easier for many to explore, absorb, and abstract their understanding of both the surface learning of school qualifications, and the deep learning of the concepts behind them crucial to getting the very highest grades.

Toby's last completed IGCSE job with Neelan: 1-2 hrs/week - Dear Toby
Are you able to please get in touch with regards tutoring in History.
Thanking you in anticipation, Neelan

Toby's last review in IGCSE from Megan: Toby is such great help!

Laurence $45-55/hr

Mathematics - The University of Oxford

***I'm afraid there is no way I can make exceptions to this***

My name is Laurence, I have a PhD in Mathematics from The University of Oxford, where I also attended for undergraduate, completing an MMath integrated masters degree in mathematics.

I have 5 years of tutoring experience and have tutored at several Oxford independent schools alongside privately tutoring many students. I cover secondary school Mathematics, teaching students from the 11 up to the age of 18, covering everything from year 7 Mathematics to Further Mathematics A-Level.

Laurence's last completed IGCSE job with David: 1-2 hrs/week - Hi Laurence
We need a tutor for our daughter doing IGCSE maths and further maths this year.
She has just completed her mock maths exam and scored a 7, and needs help to improve her grade to an 8 or possibly a 9. She also needs help toward her further maths exam in May/June this year. Our daughter is also looking to continue with maths as one of her A level subject next academic year.

Laurence's last review in IGCSE from David: Laurence taught me new methods that made it easy for me to understand the concepts. I feel more confident in being able to solve similar problems in my Further Maths IGCSE paper.

English Language and Literature - University of Oxford

I am an English Literature graduate from Oxford University. I am passionate about educating young people and ensuring they reach their highest potential. To date I have worked as a private tutor, mentor, workshop facilitator and coach. As a private tutor I have taught English at GCSE and A-Level and have prepared Ox-bridge candidates, most of whom have been offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge. I have worked with Eton and Mactrac Digital Education to deliver the Eton X language programme, specialising in leadership and management skills for young students. In this role I have also interviewed and prepared prospective tutors, ensuring that tutors deliver the best in digital education. I continue to find new ways to encourage students to perform as their most confident selves when faced with an academic challenge or when trying to reach a specified goal, such as entry into a desired college or university. I have a body of experience as a workshop facilitator, including using creative writing and drama to help unlock student’s potential. I do this work on a voluntary basis and have used it to help foster confidence and initiative in young people and adults. My focus is goal orientated whilst maintaining a commitment to a highly individualised approach. This is powerful because the student is met on both an educational and personal level, providing an individual , allowing and em...

Brian $40-50/hr

Geography and History - The University of Edinburgh


I am a qualified Geography teacher and have been teaching since 2011 and head of department for two of those years. I 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 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 completed IGCSE job with Helen: Occasional - Hi, I wondered if you could help. My daughters (twins) were planning to sit their iGCSE Environmental Management this summer. They are home schooled. The exam has been cancelled, but the school may be able to put forward predicted grades with evidence. We have evidence of work and can do mock papers. Is there a way you, as an independent, could give an assessment. I can give a clear indication of where they're at. We could provide mock papers. They could have an 'interview' to show their knowledge as part of the assessment, we could show work books. They have been working really hard, and were planning to work on exam technique over the next 2/3 months so they would do well in the exam, and now because they are not at a school we are finding it hard as parental view can't be taken on it's own. Can you see a way through? The exam centre have said they "will need to withdraw the entries for this summer, unless your daughters have an independent tutor who is able to provide evidence to support forecast grades." They have 2 months to get the evidence.

Brian's last review in IGCSE from Helen: Clear, smooth, made it easy as I wasn't sure how things would run. Gave useful feedback.

Chris $55-65/hr

PhD in History - King's College London

I have over 300 hours of history tutoring experience online, and I am particularly well versed on the requirements for the OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam board. My tutoring sessions are tailored towards the specific needs and goals of my students. Whether these are improving grades, keeping on top of homework, preparation for coursework and exams, or simply needing an explanation of specific concepts, I’m here to provide a session that meets your requirements. I will identify both short and long term issues the student may have with their courses, and establish solutions and goals for solving them. I particularly aim to help students improve their writing and exam essay techniques. I use a simple but effective system for this: firstly by using exercises designed to improve understanding and appreciation of the requirements of exam essay questions, followed by introducing skills and techniques for constructing time-efficient essay plans, and finally a rigorous focus on improving writing quality, essay structure, critical analysis and argument development through practice essays with extensive feedback. Using this system I have helped students dramatically improve their exam essay writing techniques and achieve the higher grades they were aiming for.

We cannot recommend him highly enough!
