I am Sophia, I have a Ba(Hons)(2.1) in Political Science and History and a Masters in International Politics. I am very enthusiastic about supporting and educating children so that they are able to reach their full potential and can succeed no matter what their ability. I believe every child matters and deserves a good start in life.
I am currently training to be a Legal Executive Lawyer through CILEx Law School.
I possess much experience in private home tuition in which my students have succeeded and exceeded in achieving their schооl based target grades. The approach I tend to adopt when tutoring students in the subjects listed above is one of understanding the level a student is at and then to take them on a journey to reach their best grade.

Experience: Having worked for the Education Regulator (Ofqual) regulating qualifications at GCSE and A` level in terms of quality of developing, delivery and awarding qualifications, I have developed a good understanding of syllabuses, Marking schemes and the learning requirements for the qualifications I tutor. As a examination regulator, I also have a sound knowledge of how each examination boards operates including OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL, WJEC and iGCSE. Contact this Tutor
I have extensive experience of private tuition for the following subjects: Key Stage 1 and 2, 11 Plus, Maths, English, Science and History at both GCSE and A` level. As well as Government and Politics and Law at A` level. In addition to this, I have tutored degree level in Politics and supported students with their final thesis.
I have so far given my best to my students to reach their academic goals. I hope to do the same in the future.
I believe each student is unique and as a tutor I respect that uniqueness. My first step towards a new student would be to understand his/her uniqueness in order to determine their strengths and weaknesses and to strengthen their current knowledge. I use different styles of teaching methods, depending on the student`s ability. My main method is a "student first" method whereby I would listen to the difficulties experienced by the student for a particular subject in order to put solutions in place. Additionally, I look at the current progress the student in making in school and teach around the school syllabus in order for them to achieve their best. From being an exams regulator and an experienced tutor, I have determined that there are a number of factors that affect students achievements:
1. Lack of Knowledge and Understanding in fundamentals
2. Lack of right practice ( Including Exam practice),
3. Lack of time management skills in exam situations
4. Lack of knowledge and practice to recognise the keywords/key sentences in exam questions and learning to answer the questions accurately that enables them to gain marks.
5. Lack of proper Writing Skills.
