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 review in IGCSE History from Megan: Toby is such great help!
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.

Chris's last review in IGCSE History from Waed : Review practice exam paper together Excellent way of delivery of information ++ excellent experience in IGCSE
My secondary education was comprised of the IB Diploma, in which I received the full 3 bonus points and graduated with a commendation. I am familiar with IB Higher Level and Standard Level curricula, but also able to tutor A-Levels and GCSE.
I completed my undergraduate degree in History at King`s College London and graduated with a distinguished First, winning the Elizabeth Levett Memorial Prize in History for the highest dissertation mark. My interests are far-ranging and cover 20th-century world affairs, Tudors, Stewarts, and the early modern period in England, and the medieval world. I wrote two extended theses in this period, both of which received marks over 70.
In 2016 I received a Masters in History from the University of Oxford, with an emphasis on medieval history and textual history including book production and medieval script, and produced a thesis of 25,000 words. I have had papers accepted at multiple conferences around the country and am available for proofreading and editing as well as subject tutoring.

Olivia's last review in IGCSE History from Megan: Thank you so much for all your help! See you Tuesday.
Hello! I have over seven years experience working with students at all levels of learning. My goal with tuition is to understand where a student is struggling - whether it is essay structure, exam anxiety, focusing in class, note-taking skills, or effective reading - and create strategies to work with each student that will target their unique problem. I am especially good at working with students who have learning disabilities or who find the traditional classroom setting to be an ineffective environment. I work with tutees to build strong and effective skills for good grade achievement, especially in essay-writing.
I am a patient and friendly person, and structure tuition sessions to keep my students engaged and interested in their subject. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Paula's last review in IGCSE History from Peter: History Review
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!
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.

I have taught everything from music theory to English as far afield as New York and Madagascar, in classrooms, 1-to-1 and online. I have a Congratulatory First in Modern Languages from Oxford and have been tutoring a range of subjects for the last 9 years. I also have experience of living, working and studying in both France and Germany. Although my style of teaching is friendly and laid-back, I take immense pleasure from academic achievement and from inspiring others to achieve their academic goals.
My teaching combines exceptional subject knowledge with a broad range of experience, which enables pupils of all abilities to achieve the best results they are capable of. I have successfully encouraged a huge range of pupils to take Latin, Greek and Classical Civilisation on to A Level, and to pursue the study of Classics at University, and at Oxbridge in particular. I have a wealth of experience in preparing students for public examinations in all areas of the Classical curriculum, however I also place great emphasis on their development beyond the syllabus, by developing critical thinking skills, independence of mind, the ability to debate, and the confidence needed to conduct their own research for the EPQ
I have three years’ experience tutoring the humanities in person and online. I have an excellent track record of preparing students for English and History to GCSE, IB, and A-Level.
In Summer 2016, I helped a student go from a D to an A in A-Level History resits. The previous year, one of my students went from a U-grade mock to a B in GCSE English in the space of 6 weeks.
In addition to my BA in History from the University of Cambridge (2013), I hold an MA by Research in History and Music from Durham University (2015, AHRC Scholarship).
I have extensive tutoring experience, combining my love for the humanities and social sciences with my passion to help other students succeed. My lessons are engaging and interactive, whilst highly tailored to the student's direct needs. Online tutoring provides a dynamic platform that enables me to develop a unique and productive relationship with my students, helping them to achieve their potential.
