Information about Rhys

I am currently a full time History and Politics teacher at an excellent school. This will by sixth year as a full time teacher and my second as a Head of History. I thrive on exam results and I am proud of never recording a negative residual with an exam class, be it GCSE or A Level. Despite becoming a head of department I continue to strive to further my own development, and I have invested a great deal of my time recently in examining various GCSE & A Level papers, principally Edexcel A level politics & Edexcel GCSE History.

Each tutoring arrangement is tailored to the need of each students e.g. the focus may be on exam technique or pure content revision. An initial meeting will take place were we will set out a short and long term plan. Most arrangements tend to be a weekly session which is tailored to what best fits the availability of the client. I do my best to be flexible with times and dates, so they can be adjusted on a weekly basis. Finally, I am happy to tutor on Zoom or Skype should you want to minimise the risk involved with the coronavirus outbreak.

I like to build up a strong rapport with the tutee and the learning will take place in a cordial environment. The pace of the session will be dictated by the tutee therefore the learning will be augmented. Furthermore each session will be prepared as I would prepare for any lesson with excellent resources provided.

Availability: Monday - Friday 4.30-8pm
The above times and dates should be seen as a guideline as some of the times and dates specified are already booked for the academic year 2020-21.

Saturday not available
Sunday available

Willing to travel: 12 miles

Experience: I have excellent knowledge of AQA/OCR/Edexcel examination boards for History and Politics at GCSE & A level.

There will be some A level modules that I will not be able to provide assistance as I do not have knowledge of all modules offered. Therefore if you are to make an enquiry please could you specify the modules (e.g. The Stuarts or French Revolution).

Also, please see feedback received.

Mr. Rhys is a very competent and brilliant tutor. As a new homeschooled student I was worried about the balance between simultaneously finishing the politics content and also completing assessments, but thanks to Mr. Rhys I have been able to do both. His lessons are informative, helpful, and most importantly enjoyable. He is very familiar with the Edexcel specification and provides excellent feedback when marking essays. I would definitely recommend him as a tutor!

My daughter has been seeing Rhys since October 2019 to assist with her A Level Politics. We are so pleased with the help and confidence boost he has given her with a subject she has found quite tricky. Rhys is always punctual and very professional. We would highly recommend him.

Our son moved schools at the start of GCSE and, consequently, missed certain history modules. Rhys is definitely helping our son to catch up and be confident for his exams. Very personable!

Rhys has been a great teacher. Totally reliable and always encouraging. Having received a D in history at AS level, Zac was awarded an A at A2. A remarkable achievement in which Rhys paid a large part.
I recommend Rhys without reservation.

Rhys has been a fantastic tutor. He has given me a lot more confidence in being able to put down my ideas on paper. I have been able to go over any of the topics that I have struggled with in my A level class that week, Rhys is very adaptable in his lessons. I feel I have a much better understanding because of his knowledge and passion for the subject. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a Politics tutor.

Rhys has been a fantastic tutor for my daughter during GCSEs. His vast knowledge of the syllabus has allowed her to gain a greater understanding of the topics and given her insight into how historical events are linked. Rhys has clearly explained the layout of the new GCSE exam questions, which have earned her top grades and made her work more cohesive and perceptive. I would highly recommend!

Rhys was an absolutely fantastic tutor for me. Was always incredibly thorough, without wasting time on unnecessary content. Any issues with exam practice, he was always more than willing to go over them and make sure I confident in tackling similar questions.
Moreover, he provided really helpful revision documents towards the exam period, which in my opinion were far better than the revision textbooks you can buy.
Rhys is a great tutor who I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend.
