Information about Stuart
I am an enthusiastic Head of Department and a general Politics and History geek. I love the challenge of making difficult concepts accessible to students of all ability levels. My Politics specialism is the UK, US and political ideologies, for History my specialism is 20th Century History. However over my career I have taught the majority of the modules on offer. I am happy to tutor online or face to face when possible.
In addition to Politics and History I am a certified member of the careers development institute and can offer independent and professional careers guidance at any stage. This includes interview prep, applications, option choices. See my subject list for details.
Availability: Available immediately, some week days, week nights and possibly weekends.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have an MSc in International Relations with a specialism in US politics and a PGCE from Durham University. I have taught Pearson (Edexcel) Politics and History for ten years and have extensive experience across all aspects of the course. I have taught all ability levels and have prepared students for successful Oxbridge applications.
In addition to teaching I have worked as an examiner for Pearson for ten years, for the past six years I have lead examination teams at GCSE and A-Level for both History and Politics.
In addition I am a certified member of the careers development institute and can offer independent and professional careers guidance at any stage. This includes interview prep, applications, option choices. See my subject list for details.
