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.

Politics job with Eve:
1-2 hrs/week - I am currently studying independently to retake my politics A2 exams. I am particularly struggling with Unit 4B GOV4B Political Issues: Ideologies in Action; specifying in multiculturalism/ feminism and ecologism.
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.
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.
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.

I have been a private tutor with Spires for 2 years, and have had many successful clients who have rated me as excellent, who include: GCSE Law pupils; Cambridge admission pupils (Law); many A-level Politics pupils (both AQA and Edexcel) and clients in a few other subjects. 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 AS levels. I helped my sister achieve an A* in her EPQ and I have been 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.

Oliver's last completed Politics job with Ekaterina: Occasional - Hi, I need some help editing - a cyberspace governance essay on hate speech regulation, feedback and way to improve structure, wording, thank you !
Oliver's last review in Politics from Savannah: Coursework Feedback Great!
She finds that academic success is best achieved when students are really engaged with their subject. Georgie enables her tutees to get the grades they want but also teaches students to read deeply; skills which will benefit them throughout their education and later life. She finds that such a focus also helps students develop lateral thinking methods, important for Oxbridge interview.
She has wide experience teaching a range of subjects and syllabuses - from Primary to Undergraduate. She is experienced with a range of exam boards including Edexcel, AQA, Pre-U, OCR and WJEC.
Georgie's last completed Politics job with Charlotte: Occasional - I am writing an essay entitled "How have real world events shaped the evolution of realism as an approach to International Political Economy?" and I just want some guidance/a second opinion that I'm going in the write direction and I need some clarification that I'm actually answering the question. Deadline is next Wednesday (3rd April).
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.
