Information about Andrew
I am an experienced teacher and tutor. I taught History to GCSE and A level for 18 years at a large secondary school and spent eight of those as head of department. I was also closley involved in training History teachers with Bristol University and was an Asscoiate tutor of the University for a number of years
I have been tutoring privately since 2009 and with great success, with a steadily increasing number year on year. Last summer (2013) of some 20 students taking A level that I worked with, all improved their grade by at least one, many by two or better. Eight achieved A or A This summer (2014), most students attained their target with 9 Bs, 3 As and one A*
In 2015, the success continued with all students improving their grades by at least one and most getting into the university of their choice. One Politics student got an A having been taught the whole course by me and one Philosophy student was awarded 100% on one paper.
I have an informal and relaxed style and relate well to all my students.My approach is based on very strong subject expertise ( I am lucky that my work is also one of my hobbies! and thorough familiarity with the specifications of all the boards.
My main subject is History but can offer Ancient History, Politics and Philosophy /RE also.
I have an up to date DRB plus copies of my degree and PGCE certificates. If you purchase my details. I can send link to my blog which has glowing testimonials from pat studnts!
I am also an examiner at A level with one of the main boards, which of course gives me more insight into what is required to succeed. I have been marking for them for 5 years now.
Recently, I co-authored a book on Ancient History which has been published on-line

Feedback For Andrew (3)
My Son started Year 13 tutoring in History with Andrew recently. Unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic he is no longer sitting his A-levels but I can say in the short time Andrew has tutored him, my son he has grown in confidence in History and has enjoyed sessions. Andrew has also been reliable and an efficient communicator__thank you.
Andrew has been amazing and my daughter has found him extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
He has help so much and sends over notes prior to lesson which is really going over and above what I had expected.
Definitely 5* and I would recommend.
Andrew makes the tutorials very interesting and has a vast knowledge of History. I am starting GCSE History and thoroughly enjoying the work with his skillful guidance.
