Information about Tim
I am a very experienced history teacher, who has successfully taught A level for 33 years. My students have been achieving on average of 76% A to B. I believe that it is vital to encourage and support the student; to show how they can effectively learn and to support them in structuring their answers, to allow them to maximise their marks.
At the moment, I am tutoring AQA, Edexcel and Cambridge exam boards, at A level, GCSE and IGCSE. I am experienced in most popular A level and GCSE units, including the AQA investigation and the Edexcel coursework.
Availability: I am available in the afternoon and early evening for tutoring, either one to one or online.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been a Head of History for 25 years at an outstanding secondary school in West London. I have successfully taught A level History for 33 years. I have a wide historical knowledge and I have taught a variety of topics.
I am an experienced examiner, working for both AQA and Edexcel. As part of my role, I have been closely involved in both the A level and GCSE curriculum changes and I am very familiar with the requirements of the modern syllabi.
Feedback For Tim (16)
My two children like Tim very much. He is a very kind and experienced history teacher. Very patient.
I found the online lessons with Tim really helpful.
Tim is a fantastic tutor and has really helped my son a great deal.
My daughter is doing an unusual topic choice in History A level so a local tutor wasn`t possible. The online tutoring is working really well, Tim is giving her lots of support and technique advice. It`s still fairly early days but we are both very happy with our choice.
Will recommend Tim. Hes patient and have good knowledge of the subject. Daughter find his lesson very helpful.
My son has had online tutorials with Tim which he has found very useful. Tim is encouraging and clear. He told me at the outset that he couldn`t cover one paper in A Level History as he wasn`t an expert on China. In my opinion he is certainly an excellent teacher and knowledegable about the exams, there is conflicting advice on the new Linear A Levels and how to answer questions which he is helping Ben with.
Early days with Tim - but all signs are good. My son has been impressed with the tutoring so far .
Reliable; punctual; polite; good rapport established; provided student with support pre 1st year A level exams, would highly recommend.
My daughter has found Tim very helpful in enabling her understand what is expected from her in GCSE exams. She is more positive about getting the grades she needs in her History GCSE paper. She has also enjoyed having Online tuition for her history lessons.
Tim started supporting our daughters studies in the autumn of 2017. In addition to his significant qualifications, experience and knowledge in terms of the subject and examination board, Tims professional, focused and reassuring personality has been a great help. Always pleasant and always flexible should times need to change. Absolutely recommend.
Tim has been teaching my son since September, and has already made a big difference to his progress in history. His GCSE mock result was a considerable improvement on last summers results. He gets on well with my son, and is very easy and flexible to deal with. All in all we are very happy and hopeful for a good GCSE result!
