I am a Durham University graduate and I studied for a BA (Hons) degree in Politics. The aim of my tutorials is to help you gain a greater level of understanding in your subjects, and hopefully come to love them as much as I do. I consider myself a friendly and approachable person. I have a lot of experience in this area – I have completed over 620 hours of tuition on MyTutor, I have previously coached swimming, acted as a peer mentor and have tutored both my peers and younger years through their GCSEs and A-Levels. I also have a certificate noting my enhanced DBS/CRB check which was renewed on 11/11/2017.

About my sessions

During the sessions, you will help to decide what areas we cover. Only you know what you understand and what you need more in-depth help with, so never feel shy about asking me to go back over a certain topic, or even explain it in a different way. I know from personal experience that everyone learns differently, so if you need me to use another approach, I will.

During the sessions, you will help to decide what areas we cover. Only you know what you understand and what you need more in-depth help with, so never feel shy about asking me to go back over a certain topic, or even explain it in a different way. I know from personal experience that everyone learns differently, so if you need me to use another approach, I will. 

In politics, essay writing is key. However, before you can answer exam questions or write an essay, basic understanding is crucial – so this is what we will focus on first. The goal is for you to become confident enough to explain the theories to me. Then I will guide you through how to apply these concepts to an argument, and we will structure essay plans and mock exam answers until you feel you have mastered the subject. I also want the sessions to be fun. Learning can be a really enjoyable experience, and hopefully I will be able to prove that to you after our tutorials!

What now? Hopefully my profile has answered most queries you might have. However if you have any other questions at all, please do book a ‘Free Meeting’ through the website. Let me know how I can help you, that’s what I’m here for!

I started having tuition sessions with Heather after recieving my AS politics results in which I got a D and a C. In the end I ended up with an A in politics which I never thought I'd ever achieve. I'm confident that I would have never have achieved an A had I not got the help that I have done in our sessions. I would highly recommend to anyone struggling with Gov Politics A level.

If you are lucky enough to have Heather teaching you then you have every chance to secure one of the top grades. I am writing this review as a Head of Sixth Form. She tutored my son for his A level and he went from a C to an A. She is quite simply superb! I only wish I could recruit her onto my teaching team.

Simply outstanding! Passionate, professional, very intelligent and well prepared. I know Heather is always booked up, so the challenge is getting her.

From a students perpspective, Heather has been a massive help. Heathers lessons have always been interesting and I have always come away understanding more than before the lesson. Her summary documents which she sends after the lesson were a huge help as it consolidated my knowledge. Overall, I would highly recommend her.
