Topic Expertise

My role as an exam marker for GCSE and A Level exam boards has given me an invaluable insight into strategies for how students can easily maximise marks within final examinations, especially for extended written answers.

I provide detailed feedback on all tasks including completed exam questions to ensure students understand and implement strategies focussed on improving the structure and content of written answers.

Testimonials

I am happy to announce I have achieved an A in my A Level! I’m so grateful for your help! I had so many meaningful conversations with you which made your class worth it no matter the grade. I understand the geography subject at much more depth which makes me more fulfilled, only with your help!

Mr Blake is an excellent tutor. He is an examiner for the exam board and we hired him to help improve our son’s A-level geography exam technique. My son says that he is very knowledgable, provides excellent resources and is a nice guy. After a few sessions, my son has a clearer understanding of what is required to get full marks. Recently, his school geography teacher said one of his answers on a practice exam question was, “a model answer”. I can see that my son is feeling more confident and motivated with Mr Blake’s tutoring.

I don't have enough words to describe how great Stewart is, so I will keep it short. It all started as an intention to raise my son's grade from a D in his mocks. It worked, he got a B in his final exams at A level. He was so happy. But it became more than just revision, Stewart helped my son really love Geography, to look at the world differently, to see and understand how it all works. He ignited and encouraged an understanding way beyond A-levels and into the real world. My son often tells me something that 'Stewart told me'. Stewart really made an impression on him. We are so grateful and cannot recommend Stewart enough.

I approached Stewart in February, 2023, as my daughter’s Geography A Level prediction was a C with the potential of achieving a B grade (which she needed for her uni choice). In the 3.5 months Stewart supported her, he quickly understood the gaps in her knowledge of understanding and through excellent planning (slides sent ahead of the lesson for pre-read), lots of questioning to make sure she understood the topic well and gave great feedback, which boosted her confidence. It meant she went into the exams better prepared and she really grasped what the mark scheme was looking for. Thanks to Stewart, she managed to absolutely smash that C/B prediction and achieved an A!!! We are so grateful for his intervention at such a crucial point and we were worried we’d left it too late but we didn’t need to- thank you Stewart for all your support! *****

Thank you so much, Stewart for all your help and advice. The twins did exceptionally well in Geography and achieved the required grades to secure their 6th form of choice. We appreciate everything you did to get them there.

AABC for Geography is the biggest achievement in my sons entire school life, and it’s like a gift to me and his father. Last summer his father and I were talking about giving up on sending him to university (I was sobbing about all the disabilities he has got ) . I am not that religious person but now I have to be! Still I can not believe……how I could find you last September. Gift from heaven! Also, paper 1 & 2, you prepared him within only 6 weeks or less, just after 1 year tutorial from a former geography tutor when he failed the AS exams.
