I am a fully qualified teacher with a Master's degree in Philosophy and a PGCE. I specialise in teaching GCSE and A Level Religious Studies and Philosophy across all examination boards. I began my teaching career in 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 over twenty 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.
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, positive, pleasant, patient, and motivating, with a gentle aura and genuine passion for my subject.
The first lesson is always 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
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 Coventry & Warwickshire area.
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.
My daughter really struggled with A level RS, and Bobby really helped her.
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.
