Hi! My name is Henry. I am an honest and hardworking undergraduate at the London School of Economics where I am reading Environmental Policy with Economics. I have achieved consistently high results throughout my academic life and I hope to be able to share some of what I have learnt with you to allow you to achieve at your highest potential.
I have considerable life experience, from selling christmas trees in Battersea Park, to project management in the construction industry, to working as a classroom assistant with special-needs children in my local area. I believe this diversity has allowed me to develop my inter-personal skills to effectively engage with a wide variety of people.
I have a passionate interest in helping others and I aspire to work in the Charity Sector after graduation. This summer I spent several months in Kenya where I helped the school children there to get the most out of their education. In preparation for a return trip there next summer, a considerable amount of the money I earn through tutoring you will be going directly to fund this charitable cause.
On a more personal note, in my spare time I enjoy photography, cooking and, yes, the odd film on Netflix too.
GCSE Grades: 9 A*, including English, Maths, three Sciences, Geography and Spanish
A-Level Grades: 4 A* in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Geography
Availability: As a student, I am highly flexible in when I am able to work and it will be largely up to you to let me know when you want to book the next session.
Weekday evenings work well for me, however, I am also able to tutor at the weekend in the morning (or possibly afternoons if agreed in advance).
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: As I mentioned previously, I have considerable experience volunteering at a special needs school just outside Manchester where I learnt a range of key teaching skills with time management, engagement techniques and flexibility being some of the most important.Contact this Tutor
In addition to the above, I have tutored a number of friends, family and friends of friends and each time I have looked forward to the prospect of helping someone work through difficult academic material. I am aware that the pressure that is put onto you in school is far from easy to handle sometimes and that it is nice to have someone to help you work through things outside of the regular school learning framework.
Last year I tutored several high-school students in London and their feedback was wholly positive. The tutees ranged from students with expected GCSE grades of Ds to Cs to students with expected A-Level grades of A and A*. I was particularly proud of helping one tutee reach her full potential and gain the A grade she needed in Geography in order to gain a place at UCL.
