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.

Couldn`t have asked for a better tutor.

James (Mr)

5/5 Rating

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.
