Information about Alasdair
I graduated with First Class Honours in History from Oxford University in 2010, and recently completed an MA in Philosophy at King`s College London. I have 4 years of tutoring experience, mainly with GCSE-A-Level students and undergraduate university students. I provide one on one tuition which is engaging, interesting and which markedly improves exam and interview performance. I place great emphasis on essay-writing skills and exam technique.
AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
-HISTORY (from GCSE to Undergraduate level).
-PHILOSOPHY (especially undergraduates).
-ENGLISH (I`ve taught everything from Key Stage 2 to undergraduates).
-OXBRIDGE APPLICATIONS (help with personal statements and practice interviews).
-POLITICS (GCSE-A Level).
-General ESSAY WRITING skills (GCSE/Standard Grade-Undergraduate level).
-EFL (English as a foreign language) - I am a qualified and experienced EFL teacher (CELTA qualified).
I offer FREE HALF-HOUR INTRODUCTORY SESSIONS to discuss what the student wants to gain from tuition. I also offer 5% off for those who book and pay for ten or more lessons in advance.
I offer reduced rates for online tuition. Oxbridge applicants who wish to can email me their personal statements for comment and guidance.
