I'm an experienced science and language tutor with more than 10 years of teaching. SPANISH I have studied Spanish for over 10 years and obtained the highest certificate in Spanish as Foreign Language (DELE) with distinction. Awarded first prize in many Spanish international competitions. For four years, I did courses in Spanish geography, history and culture, and I normally use what I learned to make my classes interactive and more than a way of teaching a language. I like immersing people in the Spanish culture, with its food, dances, famous painters and explorers. Have taught Spanish as foreign language for more than ten years, in one-to-one and one-to-few sessions. I adapt my style to the students I work with - for one, it can be all about having fun while translating lyrics of famous songs and watching Spanish short films (audio, experiential learners); for another it can be about rigorously tackling grammar and crafting complex stories. Regardless of the approach, you should expect that after a year of weekly/fortnightly classes you would advance by two levels (e.g. A2 to B2). SCIENCES I'm doing a PhD in Biology at the University of Oxford and have taught both within the university and in private summer schools in Oxford on the topic. I teach both high school students who need help preparing for exams, as well as university students who want to go in-depth within a certain subject or understand course material. My methods focus on applied learning, which means I'll help you understand why it is important to learn something and what you can do with that knowledge, not just how to learn. My teaching method for A-level students focuses on problem-based learning similar to university admissions interviews.

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.

Just finished IB with a stunning full marks of 45! The journey definitely wasn’t easy but I acquired knowledge on how to excel on the exams, tips I definitely want to teach to you if you also want to achieve academic excellence. Having just taken the IB, I will fully understand the most important aspects of the subjects I took – the concepts you definitely need to comprehend and some details that you will be fine with overlooking. I am skilled at explaining complex ideas by breaking it down into small subtopics and patiently walking it through with students. I have also taken the IGCSE with equal academic excellence and am confident in teaching the subjects to students who are struggling. Having taken many exams in school, I have also learned a few critical methods that are not taught by teachers but will certainly improve your performance in exams. I have had multiple teaching experiences working with younger students which have given me a better understanding of how to most effectively explain difficult concepts and convey information. One such experience being the Long-Distance Learning Program I led in collaboration with NGO Noughts and Hearts to teach students in Inner Mongolia English as well as cultivate their critical thinking through discussions and debates. This experience was especially beneficial to me as an aspiring educator because it highlighted the problems encountered in online education lying in the difficulty of organising groups of students and building rapport with each student. As such, tackling these issues has enabled me to better deliver quality teaching to students. As a result, my teaching style is flexible and adaptable. I am meticulous and thus will make abundant preparation for each teaching session by listing out topics to cover, arranging accompanying notes to facilitate the session, and composing exam-style questions to check students' understanding. However, I will also adapt my teaching style once I get to know the student and their learning style better, making sure they can learn more effectively in each session. I am fully competent to teach biology, chemistry and maths at the level of IB and IGCSE as I have achieved both A*s and 7s in these subjects. Personally studying these subjects for the past 4 years, at different levels, means I fully understand the experience of learning the content of these subjects. I know which sections of the subject posed as challenges in my studies, and how best to explain them so students can successfully grasp the concept. Also, having taken the exams, I know which topics are more heavily assessed and which are most often ignored, thus allowing students to better understand their syllabus to organise their study time more effectively. Furthermore, I will also incorporate study tips and examination techniques that I have picked up over the past few years into each teaching session, thus making students better equipped to excel at their exams. Currently, I am studying medicine at GKT Medical School of King’s College London, a prestigious university that offers one of the highest standard education in medicine. I am also fluent in Mandarin and would love to provide help in studying and understanding this cultural-rich language. Looking forward to supporting your studies and future endeavours!

Why use a Sociology tutor?

The study of Sociology gives students an incredible insight into humanity and how we live together as a society, locally, nationally and globally. Students of Sociology can expect to cover fascinating topics including education, poverty, social stratification, crime and punishment, family, politics, employment and globalisation - to name just a few. Sociology encourages students to ask big questions and really analyse the various answers given by different organisations, ideologies and studies. Students develop highly coveted communication, analytical and research skills that enable them to thrive in various career paths whilst also bestowing them with knowledge and understanding of the factors influencing society and their daily lives.

Whether a student is starting out in GCSE or diving into a Sociology degree, success in Sociology studies is notoriously difficult to achieve. A private Sociology tutor can prove the key to unlocking your potential. Sociology tutors are able to support students through every element of their studies, from cultivating top research and analysis skills to explaining complex concepts and theories in simple terms. With the aid of an experienced Sociology tutor, the mysteries of human society will be unveiled, leaving students with a comprehensive understanding of the forces at work in society and how they affect us both as a collective and individuals.

Who can benefit from a Sociology tutor?

Sociology is a subject that appeals to students of every age and education level. Equally, the complexity of the subject, from as early as GCSE level, means students can benefit from a private Sociology tutor from day one of their studies. A private Sociology tutor can ensure students really understand the subject, from the basics through to the complex nuances of high-level study.

GCSE or IGCSE Sociology tutor - At GCSE level, students are introduced to the idea of placing an individual within the context of society and its various structures. Students will look at the basic principles of sociology including social theory and methodology. Students will also focus on core subjects such as the sociology of families, education, social stratification, and crime and deviance. Success in sociology courses requires students to show they can take a considered approach to issues, taking multiple factors into account and critically analysing both data and wider theories. Embarking on such a challenging subject just when a students education intensifies with the pressure of GCSEs is a huge undertaking with many students struggling to thrive on a GCSE Sociology course. The help of a GCSE Sociology tutor can transform both a student's grades and their GCSE experience. Our experienced Sociology tutors have taught the GCSE Sociology curriculum of all the major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. A private Sociology tutor can hone in on exactly which areas a student is struggling with and fill any gaps in skill or knowledge. From helping students understand complicated theories to focused exam preparation, working with a private GCSE Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure a students success both now and in their future studies.
Pre-U, IB or A-Level Sociology tutor - While exam boards differ slightly on the specifics of their courses, all A-Level Sociology courses will require students to demonstrate critical understanding of key sociological perspectives and theories, understanding of core sociological research methods, appreciation of contemporary social issues and how society is changing as well as an interest in the economic, political and social issues that affect society. In addition to building their knowledge of Sociology, students will need to develop their independent thinking, critical analysis and research skills if they are to be successful on the course. Attempting to absorb the vast quantity of information and cultivate the high-level skills required in a Sociology course at A-Level is extremely challenging for students. Equally, achieving top grades in a Sociology A-level is critical to a student’s future prospects. Working with an A-Level Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure success at this vital point in a student's academic career. Tutor House’s expert A-Level Sociology tutors have experience teaching the AQA, OCR, WJEC and Edexcel exam board curriculum and can guide students through every step of the course. From explaining core theories and concepts in simple terms to filling gaps in a students knowledge or focused exam revision, with an A-level Sociology tutor students get all the support they need to excel in the course and achieve top grades.
Sociology Degree tutor - Gone are the days when Sociology was a “nothing degree”. Today, Sociology is a highly respected, highly rewarding degree with plenty of employment opportunities for successful graduates. However, the increased esteem of a Sociology degree is considerably down to the challenging nature of the course. University students studying Sociology will be required to develop an understanding of various social theories and both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Students will also study specific areas of Sociology such as ethnography, social welfare, family and education and crime and punishment. As with all degree courses, a Sociology degree represents a real step up in terms of academic rigour. The increased intensity of university study combined with the shock of adjusting to university life can often leave students feeling overwhelmed or unable to keep up with the course. Working with a private Sociology tutor can provide the support students need to thrive in their degree course. Many of Tutor House’s Sociology degree tutors are experienced professors or lecturers, offering an unrivalled insight into the course and what it takes to succeed. Tutors can help students to improve their essay writing skills, develop effective studying techniques and practice research and analysis skills. Equally, a private Sociology tutor can identify and resolve any issues or confusion the student has regarding the theories, concepts and case studies explored in their course, allowing them to flourish and attain a top Sociology degree qualification.
Sociology tutor for adult learners - Studying Sociology has a myriad of benefits for adult learners. Not only does studying Sociology empower students to better understand human behaviour and the social structures around them, it can also greatly enhance their skillset and prime them for either promotion or an entire career change. Whether you are looking to study Sociology for vocation, qualification or simple interest, working with a private Sociology tutor will ensure you reach your goals. Our Sociology tutors for adult learners appreciate the additional complications of studying as an adult. Our tutors are able to offer various study options to suit the hectic lifestyle and budget restraints of adult learners. Students can choose from face to face tuition sessions or working with an online sociology tutor, both of which can be booked at times that suit your busy schedule. At Tutor House we want to promote learning at every age and every level, ensuring all students can get the educational support they deserve. Invest in your education and find your perfect Sociology tutor with Tutor House today.

Tutoring FAQs

A

Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer. You can cancel your booking without incurring any charges as long as it’s cancelled at least 48 hours before the lesson is due to take place. However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

A

If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

I'm an experienced science and language tutor with more than 10 years of teaching. SPANISH I have studied Spanish for over 10 years and obtained the highest certificate in Spanish as Foreign Language (DELE) with distinction. Awarded first prize in many Spanish international competitions. For four years, I did courses in Spanish geography, history and culture, and I normally use what I learned to make my classes interactive and more than a way of teaching a language. I like immersing people in the Spanish culture, with its food, dances, famous painters and explorers. Have taught Spanish as foreign language for more than ten years, in one-to-one and one-to-few sessions. I adapt my style to the students I work with - for one, it can be all about having fun while translating lyrics of famous songs and watching Spanish short films (audio, experiential learners); for another it can be about rigorously tackling grammar and crafting complex stories. Regardless of the approach, you should expect that after a year of weekly/fortnightly classes you would advance by two levels (e.g. A2 to B2). SCIENCES I'm doing a PhD in Biology at the University of Oxford and have taught both within the university and in private summer schools in Oxford on the topic. I teach both high school students who need help preparing for exams, as well as university students who want to go in-depth within a certain subject or understand course material. My methods focus on applied learning, which means I'll help you understand why it is important to learn something and what you can do with that knowledge, not just how to learn. My teaching method for A-level students focuses on problem-based learning similar to university admissions interviews.

I'm an experienced science and language tutor with more than 10 years of teaching. SPANISH I have studied Spanish for over 10 years and obtained the highest certificate in Spanish as Foreign Language (DELE) with distinction. Awarded first prize in many Spanish international competitions. For four years, I did courses in Spanish geography, history and culture, and I normally use what I learned to make my classes interactive and more than a way of teaching a language. I like immersing people in the Spanish culture, with its food, dances, famous painters and explorers. Have taught Spanish as foreign language for more than ten years, in one-to-one and one-to-few sessions. I adapt my style to the students I work with - for one, it can be all about having fun while translating lyrics of famous songs and watching Spanish short films (audio, experiential learners); for another it can be about rigorously tackling grammar and crafting complex stories. Regardless of the approach, you should expect that after a year of weekly/fortnightly classes you would advance by two levels (e.g. A2 to B2). SCIENCES I'm doing a PhD in Biology at the University of Oxford and have taught both within the university and in private summer schools in Oxford on the topic. I teach both high school students who need help preparing for exams, as well as university students who want to go in-depth within a certain subject or understand course material. My methods focus on applied learning, which means I'll help you understand why it is important to learn something and what you can do with that knowledge, not just how to learn. My teaching method for A-level students focuses on problem-based learning similar to university admissions interviews.

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.

Just finished IB with a stunning full marks of 45! The journey definitely wasn’t easy but I acquired knowledge on how to excel on the exams, tips I definitely want to teach to you if you also want to achieve academic excellence. Having just taken the IB, I will fully understand the most important aspects of the subjects I took – the concepts you definitely need to comprehend and some details that you will be fine with overlooking. I am skilled at explaining complex ideas by breaking it down into small subtopics and patiently walking it through with students. I have also taken the IGCSE with equal academic excellence and am confident in teaching the subjects to students who are struggling. Having taken many exams in school, I have also learned a few critical methods that are not taught by teachers but will certainly improve your performance in exams. I have had multiple teaching experiences working with younger students which have given me a better understanding of how to most effectively explain difficult concepts and convey information. One such experience being the Long-Distance Learning Program I led in collaboration with NGO Noughts and Hearts to teach students in Inner Mongolia English as well as cultivate their critical thinking through discussions and debates. This experience was especially beneficial to me as an aspiring educator because it highlighted the problems encountered in online education lying in the difficulty of organising groups of students and building rapport with each student. As such, tackling these issues has enabled me to better deliver quality teaching to students. As a result, my teaching style is flexible and adaptable. I am meticulous and thus will make abundant preparation for each teaching session by listing out topics to cover, arranging accompanying notes to facilitate the session, and composing exam-style questions to check students' understanding. However, I will also adapt my teaching style once I get to know the student and their learning style better, making sure they can learn more effectively in each session. I am fully competent to teach biology, chemistry and maths at the level of IB and IGCSE as I have achieved both A*s and 7s in these subjects. Personally studying these subjects for the past 4 years, at different levels, means I fully understand the experience of learning the content of these subjects. I know which sections of the subject posed as challenges in my studies, and how best to explain them so students can successfully grasp the concept. Also, having taken the exams, I know which topics are more heavily assessed and which are most often ignored, thus allowing students to better understand their syllabus to organise their study time more effectively. Furthermore, I will also incorporate study tips and examination techniques that I have picked up over the past few years into each teaching session, thus making students better equipped to excel at their exams. Currently, I am studying medicine at GKT Medical School of King’s College London, a prestigious university that offers one of the highest standard education in medicine. I am also fluent in Mandarin and would love to provide help in studying and understanding this cultural-rich language. Looking forward to supporting your studies and future endeavours!

Why use a Sociology tutor?

The study of Sociology gives students an incredible insight into humanity and how we live together as a society, locally, nationally and globally. Students of Sociology can expect to cover fascinating topics including education, poverty, social stratification, crime and punishment, family, politics, employment and globalisation - to name just a few. Sociology encourages students to ask big questions and really analyse the various answers given by different organisations, ideologies and studies. Students develop highly coveted communication, analytical and research skills that enable them to thrive in various career paths whilst also bestowing them with knowledge and understanding of the factors influencing society and their daily lives.

Whether a student is starting out in GCSE or diving into a Sociology degree, success in Sociology studies is notoriously difficult to achieve.

Who can benefit from a Sociology tutor?

Sociology is a subject that appeals to students of every age and education level. Equally, the complexity of the subject, from as early as GCSE level, means students can benefit from a private Sociology tutor from day one of their studies. A private Sociology tutor can ensure students really understand the subject, from the basics through to the complex nuances of high-level study.

GCSE or IGCSE Sociology tutor - At GCSE level, students are introduced to the idea of placing an individual within the context of society and its various structures. Students will look at the basic principles of sociology including social theory and methodology. Students will also focus on core subjects such as the sociology of families, education, social stratification, and crime and deviance. Success in sociology courses requires students to show they can take a considered approach to issues, taking multiple factors into account and critically analysing both data and wider theories. Embarking on such a challenging subject just when a students education intensifies with the pressure of GCSEs is a huge undertaking with many students struggling to thrive on a GCSE Sociology course. The help of a GCSE Sociology tutor can transform both a student's grades and their GCSE experience. Our experienced Sociology tutors have taught the GCSE Sociology curriculum of all the major exam boards including AQA, Edexcel and OCR. A private Sociology tutor can hone in on exactly which areas a student is struggling with and fill any gaps in skill or knowledge. From helping students understand complicated theories to focused exam preparation, working with a private GCSE Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure a students success both now and in their future studies.
Pre-U, IB or A-Level Sociology tutor - While exam boards differ slightly on the specifics of their courses, all A-Level Sociology courses will require students to demonstrate critical understanding of key sociological perspectives and theories, understanding of core sociological research methods, appreciation of contemporary social issues and how society is changing as well as an interest in the economic, political and social issues that affect society. In addition to building their knowledge of Sociology, students will need to develop their independent thinking, critical analysis and research skills if they are to be successful on the course. Attempting to absorb the vast quantity of information and cultivate the high-level skills required in a Sociology course at A-Level is extremely challenging for students. Equally, achieving top grades in a Sociology A-level is critical to a student’s future prospects. Working with an A-Level Sociology tutor is the best way to ensure success at this vital point in a student's academic career. Tutor House’s expert A-Level Sociology tutors have experience teaching the AQA, OCR, WJEC and Edexcel exam board curriculum and can guide students through every step of the course. From explaining core theories and concepts in simple terms to filling gaps in a students knowledge or focused exam revision, with an A-level Sociology tutor students get all the support they need to excel in the course and achieve top grades.
Sociology Degree tutor - Gone are the days when Sociology was a “nothing degree”. Today, Sociology is a highly respected, highly rewarding degree with plenty of employment opportunities for successful graduates. However, the increased esteem of a Sociology degree is considerably down to the challenging nature of the course. University students studying Sociology will be required to develop an understanding of various social theories and both qualitative and quantitative research methods. Students will also study specific areas of Sociology such as ethnography, social welfare, family and education and crime and punishment. As with all degree courses, a Sociology degree represents a real step up in terms of academic rigour. The increased intensity of university study combined with the shock of adjusting to university life can often leave students feeling overwhelmed or unable to keep up with the course. Working with a private Sociology tutor can provide the support students need to thrive in their degree course. Many of Tutor House’s Sociology degree tutors are experienced professors or lecturers, offering an unrivalled insight into the course and what it takes to succeed. Tutors can help students to improve their essay writing skills, develop effective studying techniques and practice research and analysis skills. Equally, a private Sociology tutor can identify and resolve any issues or confusion the student has regarding the theories, concepts and case studies explored in their course, allowing them to flourish and attain a top Sociology degree qualification.
Sociology tutor for adult learners - Studying Sociology has a myriad of benefits for adult learners. Not only does studying Sociology empower students to better understand human behaviour and the social structures around them, it can also greatly enhance their skillset and prime them for either promotion or an entire career change. Whether you are looking to study Sociology for vocation, qualification or simple interest, working with a private Sociology tutor will ensure you reach your goals. Our Sociology tutors for adult learners appreciate the additional complications of studying as an adult. Our tutors are able to offer various study options to suit the hectic lifestyle and budget restraints of adult learners. Students can choose from face to face tuition sessions or working with an online sociology tutor, both of which can be booked at times that suit your busy schedule. At Tutor House we want to promote learning at every age and every level, ensuring all students can get the educational support they deserve. Invest in your education and find your perfect Sociology tutor with Tutor House today.

Tutoring FAQs

A

Yes, we operate a 48 hour cancellation policy. Our policy protects both tutor and customer. You can cancel your booking without incurring any charges as long as it’s cancelled at least 48 hours before the lesson is due to take place. However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.
