GCSE Religious Studies Tutor
University of Cambridge, Jesus College
BA Theology and Religious Studies
Haywards Heath Sixth Form, Sussex
A Levels in English Literature, Politics and History
Since graduating in 2010, I have been a full time tutor in Religious Studies, Philosophy, Politics and Sociology. I have dozens of letters of recommendation and hundreds of hours of experience for all GCSE, 16+, A Level, Pre-U and IB courses in my subject areas.
Private tuition can achieve something class-based learning never can – genuinely tailored learning. What unites all of my teaching experience is the immense satisfaction I get from the moment that a student “gets” something, having struggled with it in class. I do not lecture – I try every approach until that moment when the student’s eyes widen and the penny finally drops.
I have substantial experience tutoring home schooled students – taking on the entire challenge of teaching the whole syllabus. As well as producing outstanding grades, these jobs have given me experience in the heavy responsibility of looking after the overall learning of a student, without the support of a school system behind them.
Over the years, I have also built up an expansive collection of custom-made digital handouts which I make available to all my students.
“Osborne Cawkwell stepped into the breach magnificently…”
Last year, we faced a bleak prospect when my daughter finished school with no higher qualifications due to illness. Osborne Cawkwell stepped into the breach magnificently, and provided tutors who both capable and willing to teach Pre-U’s in her chosen subjects: English, Philosophy and Mathematics. Three super-intelligent, highly qualified young people stepped into our lives and completely turned the situation around. She is now happily ensconced in the university of her choice and we undoubtedly owe this to the tutoring and morale boost that she received from Osborne Cawkwell.
“The quality and charm of the tutors was the best we could possibly have hoped for”
Our experiences with Osborne Cawkwell have been seriously impressive on all levels. The quality and charm of the tutors was the best we could possibly have hoped for. The standard of teaching was matched by the care and understanding, by every single tutor, towards our daughter’s mental illness. Rather than dreading the 2-hour sessions, our daughter positively looked forward to seeing the tutors. The Osborne Cawkwell experience could not have been better. We have already recommended them to many of our friends. They are fantastic!
“Our son has an excellent tutor… and… a mentor and friend.”
We were recommended Osborne Cawkwell for home tuition when our son was unable to attend regular school but needed to study for GCSEs. Although we are still relatively early in the process, the agency has been flexible, thorough and efficient about meeting our needs. Our son has an excellent tutor who is giving him more than mere academic instruction and is gradually becoming a mentor and friend. The principal of the agency is very caring and involved to the extent that she came to a lesson specifically to meet our son, something she certainly didn’t need to do.
“We strongly recommend their services.”
We have been regular users of OC for 6 years for our 4 children and have found that the quality of tutors has been uniformly high. One child needed home education, following illness, and we found in that situation the tutors and the team at OC were both effective and sensitive to a difficult situation. We strongly recommend their services.
