Information about Philip
All sessions on line.
I am a Team Leading examiner for GCSE History and A Level Politics and hold an Associate membership from the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors. I hold my A.S. teaching from Warwick University (BECTA) and my teaching certificate from the University of Lancaster. I have written research papers on education and history, published under BECTA (2005/6/7) that analysed the way that students learned. I am an experienced middle manager and have been a School Improvement Advisor for BECTA. I have taught for at The Harrodian school and currently teach History and Politics at The City of London School.
I have taught both AQA and Edexcel A-level Politics (examining for the former). I have a real passion for politics in the UK and the USA. I use current events from the week to highlight the course and allow my students to connect with what they are studying.
For History I have a passion for US history and have also taught French Revolution, Mao`s China and Germany. For GCSE I examine for AQA - paper 2 Elizabeth, though have taught both AQA, Edexcel and the Cambridge IGCSE. I can cover most areas.
Availability: All sessions are available online.
I am available after 5:30pm week days and some weekends by arrangement.
I am also happy to teach more than one student in a session, still for the same hourly rate. I would suggest groups no higher than 4. This includes lessons given and work marked for the next session.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have over 15 years experience in the classroom, a department head and a consultant teacher. I work as an examiner each summer and as such have excellent knowledge and understanding of the exams and the ways to succeed. I have an excellent understanding of how to go for the top levels.
My experience in the City Learning Centre as a consultant allowed me to work with students from 8 - 11. I have excellent experience working with GCSE and A Level candidates. I have worked with and lectured at University level. As a result, I can help students deal with exams or simply back up and consolidate knowledge.

Feedback For Philip (9)
Philip is an amazing tutor, passionate about his subject, my daughter loves her sessions with him and is starting to show real improvement. He is making a real difference to her understanding of the subject matter and how to analyse and evaluate effectively. Highly recommended!
Philip is the best tutor we ever had. He knows exactly what my son needs to be help with. He`s very polite and professional with very wired knowledge. My son said he wish we found Philip much earlier. Definitely recommend
Really helping my daughter, so pleased we found him!
Thank you Philip for your excellent work with my daughter. Very professional, friendly and is an excellent teacher. Would recommend highly.
Philip has helped my son considerably. He is very patient, knowledgeable and has a deep understanding of GCSE requirements.
Couldn`t have asked for a better tutor.
Phil has spent time working with my son to refine technique prior to his politics A-level. Phil has outstanding knowledge and enthusiasm combined with a sharp focus on the narrow requirements of UK-syllabus A-level exam technique. He has spent time as an examiner, meaning he has an in-depth
understanding of what actually constitutes a high-marking answer.
Phil is also generous with his time and my son really enjoyed learning with him. If you are looking for someone to consolidate knowledge and improve exam technique, I wholeheartedly recommend him.
Philip is a very good tutor and has given excellent advice and guidance for student essays and provides a lot of useful political information not just by the form of textbooks but also external sources such as podcasts. He is a very helpful tutor and is extremely patient when explaining political concepts. Thank you!
I could not recommend Phil highly enough. He is passionate and deeply knowledgable about his subject and dedicated and committed to his tutees. He goes above and beyond to help and I could not wish for a better tutor for my daughter who is doing A level politics and had been struggling, but is now slowly turning things around.
