Information about Mhairi
Are you aiming high this academic year and looking for exam practice? Do you need to go over concepts, terminology, contemporary evidence to help bulk up your answers? Do you like to discuss ideas to help your understanding? If yes to any or all of these, then I`m here to help you.
I am an experienced A-Level tutor in Geography and Sociology and have helped students work on summer induction tasks, as well as prep for topic retakes to improve UCAS predicted grades. I like to help build students confidence in their subject knowledge using a range of visual tools, quizzes, questions and discussions.
Over the last 10 years I have taught in a leading London Independent School, as well as a `Outstanding` Sixth Form College on the outskirts of London. Exam board specialisms include Edexcel (Geography) and AQA (Sociology). I have also taught IB Geography (DP Level). Previously, I have examined for Edexcel. I have taught online during lockdowns to classes of up to 20 students.
My subject knowledge is sound having studied Geography and Sociology at University and gained a First Class Honors BA undergraduate degree. I have a masters in a human geography related discipline, Town Planning.
In my spare time I like to cook and enjoyed ceramics courses. I am a keen educationalist and my husband works as a Deputy Head so we are never not talking about what`s happening in and out of classrooms, and the challenges young children face during their education today. I hope to be able to help you.

Experience: I have a First Class degree in Geography (BA) as well as a Human Geography related Masters degree (MA). I am currently working in an Outstanding Sixth Form College in Surrey as an A-Level Geography and Sociology teacher. I teach classes of approximately 20 students and oversee 40 NEA/coursework assignment per academic year on a variety of themes in different geographical locations chosen by students.
Previously, I have worked in the Independent Schools sector in Surrey and London for 8 years, teaching KS3, KS4 and KS5, as well as International Baccalaureate.
I have a proven track record of securing top results, as well as increasing value added in terms of significant gains based on national calculated grades.
