Information about Frances
My interest in Philosophy and Politics started with my own A Level in the subjects, which in turn led to me studying the subject at degree level. This interest further motivated me to teaching a subject that I am passionate about and I constantly aim to make it accessible and enjoyable for my students.
Availability: Week day evenings and weekend.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I am in my 6th year of teaching and am a Head of Philosophy and Politics in an independent school in West Oxfordshire. I teach KS3, GCSE Philosophy and Ethics, A Level Philosophy and A Level Politics. I recently gained excellent results for both Philosophy (80% A*-A) and Politics (70% A*-A). A number of my students have also gone on to pursue Philosophy and Politics at university.
I have tutored privately for the past 7 years and I believe that the role of a tutor is to facilitate and tailor learning to the tutee. I aim to provide accessible resources that the tutee can use to supplement their notes. All notes are tailored to different learning styles.
Feedback For Frances (6)
Frances has provided fantastic tutoring sessions for our Year 13 son. She is encouraging, knowledgeable and knows how to motivate pupils. She is flexible and easy to contact. We would highly recommend her.
Really quick response time, flexible & accommodating. Lots of relevant experience .
I contacted France`s after a dissapointing AS result leaving me with the feeling of `what did I do wrong`. France`s has been fantastic taking the time to go through my exam papers, school work and any other essays to establish where the problem might be. She immediately helped me with my structure, helping me to establish links across my other subjects, this has seen my essays already improving- after only a few sessions. She has a unique ability to teach a lengthy topic in one session, picking out the key points but asking you questions to check your understanding. This makes the topic feel `revisable` but never brief. Every session has been focused on what I would like to do, and she has quickly grasped how I like to learn. She is polite, friendly and overall a fantastic tutor and teacher, I would highly recommend her.
Excellent - knows the subject well, and is a strong communicator
Frances has been an incredible tutor who has helped me to go from a C in my Philosophy AS to an A in my re-sit and a 100% UMS in my Philosophy A-level. She is responsive and incredibly helpful, and able to adapt to individual style of learning. I recommend her intensely.
Frances was fantastic!! I can highly recommend her. She was extremely knowledgable and great with my daughter.
