Since graduating in 2010, I have been a full time religious studies tutor. I also teach philosophy, politics and sociology. I have dozens of letters of recommendation and hundreds of hours of experience for all A Level, Pre-U and IB courses in my subject areas.
Private tuition can achieve something class-based learning never can – genuinely tailored learning. What unites all of my teaching experience is the immense satisfaction I get from the moment that a student “gets” something, having struggled with it in class. I do not lecture – I try every approach until that moment when the student’s eyes widen and the penny finally drops.
I have substantial experience tutoring homeschooled students – taking on the entire burden of teaching the whole syllabus. As well as producing outstanding grades, these jobs gave me experience in the heavy responsibility of looking after the overall learning of a student, without the support of a school system behind them. In addition to hundreds of hours of tuition experience and several letters of recommendations, I have also built up an expansive collection of custom-made digital handouts which I make available to all my students.
