I have studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I have a knack for grinding down on complex problems until they look easy, and I love doing this with students and watching how things start to make sense to them. As regards language teaching: I am a German native speaker. What I think is even more important, though, is that I have learned several languages, both in school, but also since, in my free time (including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian), so I am well aware of how students learn languages and which aspects may be less intuitive than others.

Christian's last review in Politics from Kevin: functions of UK parliament Helped me understand a question that I initially found difficult
I have extensive tutoring experience, combining my love for the humanities and social sciences with my passion to help other students succeed.

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.
Evie 's last completed Politics job with Sharmain: 1-2 hrs/week - My daughter is in her final year of A levels and is struggling with Government and Politics US. She had her mock exam today and found it very hard. She is struggling with the concepts of the subject and what to include to make a good essay answer. She has a new teacher who is still getting to grips with the school and the subject. My daughter had a tutor for the Government and Politics UK in preparation for the summer exams and this helped to boast her grade to a B. So we are hoping with the extra support and tutoring this will help with her confidence and understanding of the subject in enough depth.
Evie 's last review in Politics from Sharmain: initiatives and propositions Great session and was really helpful testing my knowledge!
I've been tutoring for a very long time, which has given me experience working with all manner of students: at school I was a Higher Education mentor and I tutored reading and essay skills in a Paired Reading Challenge; whilst pursuing my BA, I was coordinator for GCSE English Revision sessions, responsible both for preparing GCSE English classes and training my fellow tutors. I was also the Core Skills lecturer at my university's Summer University programme, where I lectured on essential skills for Higher Education such as essay writing, academic research, and presentation skills. I spent the summer of 2015 teaching English to Italian schoolchildren, aged 11-13, at a fully immersive English summer camp in Veneto. I recently tutored a a pre-university student through her applications to an English Literature undergraduate degree, where I prepared her for transitioning from English as a subject in the French educational system to the demands and expectations of studying Literature at Bachelor's level.
In particular, I trust that what makes me a good tutor is that I am an enthusiastic communicator. I quickly develop effective relationships with my students, and I am very supportive of their academic endeavours. I believe that teachers always have a pastoral responsibility for their students. This means that my students are always eager to learn, as their apprehensions about the subject lessen and their confidence grows.

Andreas's last completed Politics job with Adil: 1-2 hrs/week - I need a tutor for A-level AQA Politics
Andreas's last review in Politics from Lisa : Introduction Very good and we have decided to hire Andreas
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.
Fraser's last completed Politics job with Lily: Intensive - Liberalism and Conservatism ideologies and beliefs
Fraser's last review in Politics from Ama: Half on the essay set for homework, the other half on content. Went through the essay sent last session, helped me understand where I went wrong and what I should continue to do in my essays. Went a little bit over time as my connection was quite bad. Overall a really good lesson.
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.
Peter's last completed Politics job with Yingzhi: Occasional - I’m struggling with an economic history essay and I hope you can help me with that
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.

Politics job with Narinder:
Intensive - Hi there, I'm looking for a tutor for my daughter for undergraduate course on the Global Political Economy, preferably someone who attended a Russell Group university and studied PPE. It will be at least a lesson per week starting second week in December and through to the new year, possibly longer. To develop insights into the relationship between the actions of state- and on state actors and the structure of international economic relations. By bringing together existing academic literature and analysis of relevant cases, students will develop reasoned reflection on the question of how states and non-state actors shape the global economy, and how the global economy shapes states and non-state actors. We aim for you to develop insights into issues such as whether the hegemonic state works to stabilise trading and financial regimes, who the winners and losers of economic globalisation are, whether we have witnessed a 'retreat of the state' in the realms of welfare provision and economic management, and what factors and actors drive states' international economic policies.
More specifically, the module is organised around four key questions:
Q1. Do we need a hegemonic power to support an open global economy?
Q2. Who are the winners and losers of economic globalisation?
Q3. How is the governance of the global economy changing?
Q4. What drives state responses to the global economy?
Jacob's last review in Politics from Edouard: amazing feedback
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.
