I am currently a physics undergraduate at Warwick University. I have previously tutored at a local community centre where I would tutor students over a 5 week period on a specific topic so at the end of the sessions they were confident in that area. Similarly , i tutored in my high school, providing extra support to students who struggled in science and maths . Having struggled with maths and physics when i was younger , I know how to help students approach these subjects to make them less daunting and more enjoyable, hence i think i am an ideal candidate to tutor students in these subjects .

I am an experienced professional tutor with a First class Bachelor's degree in Physics and Philosophy from the University of Bristol. I am going on to study a Masters in History and Philosophy of Science either at Cambridge or the LSE (I haven't yet decided!) This interdisciplinarity commits me to well-informed, creative and self-generated ways of thought which I encourage in all my pupils. I have been a professional tutor for 6 years and besides tutoring my primary subjects of Natural Sciences, Maths and Philosophy I have given guidance with academic confidence, writing skills and exam technique. I am very comfortable with all syllabuses and am aware of the examiners expectations and motivations for the new style exams. Every one of my students has excelled and received A*/A grades at GCSE and A-level. I have a conversational style, part lesson and part problem solving. I pay lots of attention to how pupils engage with and work with specific problems. This allows me to simultaneously understand gaps in knowledge as well as technical and analytical reasoning. I am expert in helping students with formulating their thoughts and pushing themselves to be creative in how they handle the knowledge they take from school. By helping pupils explore how they learn they become comfortably able to present their knowledge with clarity- essential in both real life and exam settings. Most recently I was employed to deliver science lesson plans to a group of year 7 and 8 students of mixed ability from minority backgrounds. I instructed groups of 15 students and learnt a huge amount of techniques to garner respect and maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning. I made an effort to incorporate interesting subject matter that connected obscure scientific topics to the world around them and gave them a taste of the activities and concepts encountered at graduate level studies. I left this job because I moved from Bristol to London. As part of my degree, I mentored a group of five fifteen year old children from Pakistan. Over the course of 6 weeks we developed comfortable bonds and were able to discuss Schrodingers cat as well as special relativity, accessed through a brief history of our conception of space. I was awarded the highest mark in the group for my efforts. The powerful dynamics of small groups brought to light the dangers of large class sizes where students are easily made to feel like unworthy contributors. "Samar was an excellent tutor to my sister, Andrea, through her A-levels. Andrea had chosen Physics and Maths out of a passion for the subjects but was held back by inadequate teaching in her GCSE’s. This meant that she was in need of a supervisor that could identify where the gaps in her knowledge were so that she could receive training for the tools she needed. Samar was instrumental in building knowledge and confidence so that Andrea could expertly grasp the topics and achieve A* grades. As soon as he started tutoring, Andrea related to us that Samar had helped her understand her weaknesses and shown her how to improve." -- Jemal, parent.

I've always had a passion for the sciences, so studied Physics at undergraduate level. Following a master's in (essentially) medical technology I had realised that I am truly energised by helping others, so I decided to study Medicine. I love to teach and have been been tutoring for just over eight years. I have an excellent track record, with all of my students having either exceeded or met their targets. I take a calm approach to tutoring and endeavour to teach my students the skills to learn effectively and with confidence.

A-Level Geography Tuition

Geography is unique among the A-level subjects in combining the physical and social sciences into one comprehensive study of the world around us. Geography A-level, in essence, teaches students about the whole world. Students will discover the physical and human features, landscapes, systems and processes that shape the Earth. Students will garner an awareness of how and why the Earth has changed over the course of history, as well as making predictions as to how it may further evolve in the future. Perhaps most importantly, students are given the tools to understand, and so contribute, to the debate about the future of the Earth and its inhabitants. Over the A-level course, students will cover a huge breadth of knowledge, develop key research and analysis skills, and potentially become inspired to take this fascinating topic on to further education.

A-level Geography is an unquestionably rewarding subject to study. However, the academic rigour required to succeed in this challenging course can leave students feeling overwhelmed. With the support of an experienced and passionate A-level Geography tutor, students are able to really get the most out of their Geography studies. From getting to grips with complex social theories or developing key statistical analysis skills, to becoming impassioned about the subject and writing top quality essays, a private tutor can ensure students thrive on their Geography course.

A-Level Geography Course Breakdown

Geography is a well respected and traditional A-level course with syllabuses being offered by all of the major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. While they differ slightly, there are a number of similarities in terms of what a student will cover and be assessed on across the various specifications. All Geography A-level curriculums will cover both Physical and Human Geography, expecting students to study them not just independently but also in terms of how they interlink. Students will also need to showcase specific Geographical research and fieldwork skills.

Physical Geography - Most A-level Geography courses will require students to study “Dynamic Landscapes”. The syllabus will include studying hazardous geographical activity, such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis as well as physical geography processes such as the carbon and water cycles. Students will also consider the impact of Global warming on landscapes and processes around the world, often focusing on the study of glacial landscapes and how they are changing and the impact on the wider world.
Human Geography - The majority of A-level Geography courses use the Human Geography topics to look at “Dynamic Places”. This topic theme will lead students to study phenomenon such as globalisation, migration, international organisations such as the World Trade Organisation and United Nations, TNC’s and NGO’s, Superpowers of the past and present in their various guises, global economies, fair trade, the North-South divide, urbanisation and the issues of health, Human Rights and intervention. Students will be expected to not just describe and explain these complex topics, but also to engage with the topics, critically analysing the systems and processes affecting humanity.
Research skills and Fieldwork - There are a number of Geographical fieldwork and research skills that students must develop if they are to be successful in the A-level course, particularly when it comes to completing coursework elements. Students will need to have at least a basic grasp of maths as they will need to analyse data as well as creating and interpreting graphs. Students must also develop foundational cartography skills as they will need to both read and draw maps.

Students will also be required to learn and use a vast quantity of Geographical vocabulary in addition to memorising key case-study examples for specific topics. Equally, students will need to be able to write at length in a clear, concise, logical and analytical manner about Geographical concepts if they are to succeed in both exams and coursework.
Assessment - Exams - While the exam breakdown differs in terms of the number of papers and percentage of the overall grade, exams will form the majority of the A-level Geography assessment for all exam board courses. Exams will take place at the end of the second year of the A-level course and are usually divided into a paper for Human Geography and a paper for Physical Geography with some courses, such as OCR, including a third paper that combines the two. Whether or not papers are divided into into Human and Physical Geography topics, referencing of the interlinking nature of both spheres of geography in all papers is recommended for top marks.

Coursework - Some exam boards, such as AQA and OCR, also require students to complete a coursework component of their GCSE. In the Aqa and OCR courses, students are required to undertake a 3000-4000 word investigation showcasing a number of Geographical fieldwork and research skills. The investigation is worth 20% of the A-level Geography grade for those exam boards.

Benefits of studying Geography at A-Level

Geography is a fantastic subject for students to study, opening up future opportunities in terms of both education and career prospects. Arguably more importantly, the Geography A-level course provides students with an invaluable understanding of the world around them and a versatile skill set that will serve them well wherever life takes them.

Skills - The A-level Geography course teaches students a huge array of skills, from transferable skills such as analytical and critical, thinking, teamwork, independent research, presentation, debating, communication and essay writing; to skills which are rarer or even unique to Geography such as cartography and data analysis. This combination of highly valuable and unique skills make Geography A-level students stand out from their peers when it comes both to getting places on University courses and pinning down that dream job. In addition to the skills acquired, Geography gives students a fantastically broad and detailed knowledge base about a vast number of topics and teaches them to draw connections between different pieces of information, resulting in a highly intelligent, informed and academically rounded individual.
University - Studying Geography gives students all sort of options when it comes to choosing both University and degree course. Due to its cross-discipline nature, A-level Geography is a beneficial qualification for both BSC and BA degree courses. From Law to Psychology, Sociology to Geology, English, History, Philosophy, Politics or Economics, the list of degree courses an A-Level in Geography is considered beneficial is almost endless.

Of course, many students choose to take Geography on to further education, some choosing a University course that specialises in the Physical or Human Geography elements while others opt for Universities with a combined Geography course.

Top Universities to study Geography include:
  • Cambridge
  • Oxford
  • Durham
  • Glasgow
  • University of Leeds
  • St Andrews
  • Bristol
  • Careers - An A-level or degree in Geography is a hugely versatile qualification with career opportunities spanning multiple industries and fields.

You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

    A

    Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer.

In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

I am going on to study a Masters in History and Philosophy of Science either at Cambridge or the LSE (I haven't yet decided!)

I have been a professional tutor for 6 years and besides tutoring my primary subjects of Natural Sciences, Maths and Philosophy I have given guidance with academic confidence, writing skills and exam technique. I am very comfortable with all syllabuses and am aware of the examiners expectations and motivations for the new style exams. Every one of my students has excelled and received A*/A grades at GCSE and A-level. I have a conversational style, part lesson and part problem solving. I pay lots of attention to how pupils engage with and work with specific problems. This allows me to simultaneously understand gaps in knowledge as well as technical and analytical reasoning. I am expert in helping students with formulating their thoughts and pushing themselves to be creative in how they handle the knowledge they take from school. By helping pupils explore how they learn they become comfortably able to present their knowledge with clarity- essential in both real life and exam settings. Most recently I was employed to deliver science lesson plans to a group of year 7 and 8 students of mixed ability from minority backgrounds. I instructed groups of 15 students and learnt a huge amount of techniques to garner respect and maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning. I made an effort to incorporate interesting subject matter that connected obscure scientific topics to the world around them and gave them a taste of the activities and concepts encountered at graduate level studies. I left this job because I moved from Bristol to London. As part of my degree, I mentored a group of five fifteen year old children from Pakistan. Over the course of 6 weeks we developed comfortable bonds and were able to discuss Schrodingers cat as well as special relativity, accessed through a brief history of our conception of space. I was awarded the highest mark in the group for my efforts.

The powerful dynamics of small groups brought to light the dangers of large class sizes where students are easily made to feel like unworthy contributors. "Samar was an excellent tutor to my sister, Andrea, through her A-levels. Andrea had chosen Physics and Maths out of a passion for the subjects but was held back by inadequate teaching in her GCSE’s. This meant that she was in need of a supervisor that could identify where the gaps in her knowledge were so that she could receive training for the tools she needed. Samar was instrumental in building knowledge and confidence so that Andrea could expertly grasp the topics and achieve A* grades. As soon as he started tutoring, Andrea related to us that Samar had helped her understand her weaknesses and shown her how to improve." -- Jemal, parent.

    I've always had a passion for the sciences, so studied Physics at undergraduate level. Following a master's in (essentially) medical technology I had realised that I am truly energised by helping others, so I decided to study Medicine. I love to teach and have been been tutoring for just over eight years. I have an excellent track record, with all of my students having either exceeded or met their targets. I take a calm approach to tutoring and endeavour to teach my students the skills to learn effectively and with confidence.

    A-Level Geography Tuition

    Geography is unique among the A-level subjects in combining the physical and social sciences into one comprehensive study of the world around us. Geography A-level, in essence, teaches students about the whole world. Students will discover the physical and human features, landscapes, systems and processes that shape the Earth. Students will garner an awareness of how and why the Earth has changed over the course of history, as well as making predictions as to how it may further evolve in the future. Perhaps most importantly, students are given the tools to understand, and so contribute, to the debate about the future of the Earth and its inhabitants. Over the A-level course, students will cover a huge breadth of knowledge, develop key research and analysis skills, and potentially become inspired to take this fascinating topic on to further education.

    A-level Geography is an unquestionably rewarding subject to study. However, the academic rigour required to succeed in this challenging course can leave students feeling overwhelmed. With the support of an experienced and passionate A-level Geography tutor, students are able to really get the most out of their Geography studies. From getting to grips with complex social theories or developing key statistical analysis skills, to becoming impassioned about the subject and writing top quality essays, a private tutor can ensure students thrive on their Geography course.

    A-Level Geography Course Breakdown

    Geography is a well respected and traditional A-level course with syllabuses being offered by all of the major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. While they differ slightly, there are a number of similarities in terms of what a student will cover and be assessed on across the various specifications. All Geography A-level curriculums will cover both Physical and Human Geography, expecting students to study them not just independently but also in terms of how they interlink. Students will also need to showcase specific Geographical research and fieldwork skills.

    Physical Geography - Most A-level Geography courses will require students to study “Dynamic Landscapes”. The syllabus will include studying hazardous geographical activity, such as volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis as well as physical geography processes such as the carbon and water cycles. Students will also consider the impact of Global warming on landscapes and processes around the world, often focusing on the study of glacial landscapes and how they are changing and the impact on the wider world.
    Human Geography - The majority of A-level Geography courses use the Human Geography topics to look at “Dynamic Places”. This topic theme will lead students to study phenomenon such as globalisation, migration, international organisations such as the World Trade Organisation and United Nations, TNC’s and NGO’s, Superpowers of the past and present in their various guises, global economies, fair trade, the North-South divide, urbanisation and the issues of health, Human Rights and intervention. Students will be expected to not just describe and explain these complex topics, but also to engage with the topics, critically analysing the systems and processes affecting humanity.
    Research skills and Fieldwork - There are a number of Geographical fieldwork and research skills that students must develop if they are to be successful in the A-level course, particularly when it comes to completing coursework elements. Students will need to have at least a basic grasp of maths as they will need to analyse data as well as creating and interpreting graphs. Students must also develop foundational cartography skills as they will need to both read and draw maps.

    Students will also be required to learn and use a vast quantity of Geographical vocabulary in addition to memorising key case-study examples for specific topics. Equally, students will need to be able to write at length in a clear, concise, logical and analytical manner about Geographical concepts if they are to succeed in both exams and coursework.
    Assessment - Exams - While the exam breakdown differs in terms of the number of papers and percentage of the overall grade, exams will form the majority of the A-level Geography assessment for all exam board courses. Exams will take place at the end of the second year of the A-level course and are usually divided into a paper for Human Geography and a paper for Physical Geography with some courses, such as OCR, including a third paper that combines the two. Whether or not papers are divided into into Human and Physical Geography topics, referencing of the interlinking nature of both spheres of geography in all papers is recommended for top marks.

    Coursework - Some exam boards, such as AQA and OCR, also require students to complete a coursework component of their GCSE. In the Aqa and OCR courses, students are required to undertake a 3000-4000 word investigation showcasing a number of Geographical fieldwork and research skills. The investigation is worth 20% of the A-level Geography grade for those exam boards.

    By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson.

In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.
