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 Arum: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with English Literature CIE IGCSE - I am taking my exams this May 2020. I would like to receive bands 8-9. My set novel is 1984 by George Orwell, I have 15 selected poems by Carol Ann Duffy and I am also studying Macbeth.
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.
Andrew's last completed IGCSE job with Emma: 1-2 hrs/week - we are looking for a kind, supportive, enthusiastic geography tutor for our 15 year old son who is due to sit gcses next summer. We have had to remove him from his senior school due to a lack of academic progress and our son becoming increasingly frustrated in a classroom environment, and are currently home schooling. Not something we would have wished for or planned but our only option at the moment. We need a tutor who can take him through the syllabus right up until the exam next summer. He is currently taking maths and English and is embarking on environmental management (online course) with a view to going to agricultural college next September (he requires 4 gcses)He has struggled throughout school and although testing negative for the usual learning difficulties we think he has some sort of auditory processing issue which has been incredibly frustrating for him. His confidence needs building but he is doing well with his Skype English lessons and settling into a routine! We currently live in a very remote part of the Highlands of Scotland (hence no schools!) but are moving to Hampshire at some stage this year so need to use Skype to have continuity etc. Do you think you can help?! He started on Edexcel IGCSE Geography and is in his first year of GCSE’s and is three weeks into his online course of environmental management so we may need some help in due course with this too. best wishes Emma
Andrew's last review in IGCSE from Emma: Very useful learnt a lot thank you!!!
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 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.

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. I am most experienced in tutoring Mathematics/Further Mathematics A-Level, GCSE and IGCSE.
I additionally offer university entrance exam and preparation, covering the MAT/STEP exams required to study Mathematics at Oxford and Cambridge, respectively. I also offer interview preparation for prospective Oxford and Cambridge mathematics students.
In addition to Mathematics tutoring I also offer tutorials covering introductory and advanced MATLAB, having spent the last 4 years using the software to complete my research.

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.
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.

Dr Chris's last review in IGCSE from Vaishnavi: Christopher is an excellent history teacher. His teaching of and guidance in GCSE history and especially its exam technique has enormously helped daughter. I would happily recommend him to a GCSE student who is looking for a history tutor.
I'm a postgraduate at The University of Oxford, and already hold a Congratulatory First in German (BA) with the best results of the 200 students in the Languages department, as well as the highest grades in Arts subjects at my college.
I also have over four years of tutoring experience, from primary through to GCSE, A Level, and undergraduate. It's a consistent delight to celebrate tutees' successes - be it getting to grips with a thorny bit of grammar, having a 'eureka!' moment with a tricky piece of literature, or passing exams with flying colours.
There can be no one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to a tutoring session. Every tutee has different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and will progress at an individual pace. I can help with anything from oral presentations and spoken fluency, to essays, literature, and grammar (having personally tried all the tips and tricks!).
Daniella's last completed IGCSE job with Nicki: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter is 15 and good at German but has a poor teacher at school they are very behind with the IGCSE syllabus. She takes that next summer. She has not got the tenses yet and i think it would be good to work up from these as a foundation.
⦁ At the City of London School for Boys, I have successfully taught pupils for IGCSE French and A level French who have gone on to both Oxford and Cambridge.
⦁ I know of the academic excellence and high expectations of selective UK independent schools
⦁ I have extensive experience tutoring students from the most prestigious schools in and around London, among them:
- City of London School for Boys, where I have taught French IGCSE and French A-level
- Latymer Upper School
- St Marylebone School
- Eltham College
- Radley College
- Wisbech Grammar School
- Mill Hill School
- Roedan School
- King Edward VI School for Girls
and many more.
⦁ Due to my long tutoring experience, I know of the high expectations put on students. This is why I take pride in delivering top level tuition in every lesson.
⦁ I have learned that tailoring learning strategies to every student's skills - language skills, and/or analytical skills for A level - significantly increase the pupil’s confidence and improve the chances to achieve his or her goals. This is how I can make a difference to the students' lives.
