PRIVATE TUITION

EXPERIENCE

 

I am a qualified teacher with a master's degree in Philosophy and a teaching PGCE. I specialise in teaching GCSE and A Level Religious Studies and Philosophy across all examination boards. I began my teaching career in 2015 within a large secondary school in Coventry before moving to a much smaller independent school in Birmingham.

 

I was soon appointed as Assistant Head of GCSE, as well as a personal tutor to students. Alongside pastoral support, I led a debating club which encouraged critical thinking, articulation, and public speaking. My most recent students acquired 80% A*-B grades for Edexcel and OCR A Level Religious Studies.

APPROACH

I thoroughly enjoy teaching young people and believe the best way to promote learning is to inspire, motivate, and generate genuine interest. I have a vast bank of PowerPoints, resources and handouts which I have created myself, all provided to the student as part of the service. As well as active learning, I apply a strong focus on written examination technique, assessment objectives, and content requirement.

 

I have been told that as a teacher I am extremely approachable, supportive, and patient, with a gentle aura and genuine passion for my subject.

PRICES

The first lesson is free and a chance to meet and discuss how I can support the learner. A decision is then usually made on whether to commence with any future tuition (with no contract or obligation) on a pay as you go basis.

I currently teach the following subjects (all specifications):

A Level Philosophy

A Level Religious Studies

GCSE Religious Studies

EPQ Support

My tuition fees are:

 

1 HOUR ................................................. £30

1 HOUR & 30 min ............................. £40

2 HOURS .............................................. £50

*A small travel fee may apply if I travel outside of the Warwickshire or Leicestershire area.

AVAILABILITY

Tuition usually takes place on any weekday evening (between 6-9pm) and weekends (between 9-1pm). Please get in touch for my current availability;  I generally get busier as we approach the summer examination period.

TESTIMONIALS 

From Jackie 

My daughter really struggled with A level RS, and Bobby really helped her.

From Galina

Bobby is an excellent tutor. He is committed and very knowledgeable. He is great at explaining different concepts as is very patient. He is aware of different exam boards and can adapt his tutoring according to school requirements. Bobby stayed in touch with my son between the lessons and replied to emails very promptly. Bobby was a tremendous help to us over past few months and we would confidently recommend him.

From Tinashe   

A great tutor, very passionate about religion and philosophy. He has brought about so much confidence in my son as well as RS knowledge for his GCSE exam. His feedback on set work is honest and he is keen to bring out maximum potential of his students. I am very pleased.
