Hi I'm Lawrence, a History and Politics student studying in York! I love my subjects, and hope I can use this passion to help you get the grades you want and deserve. My home city of Portsmouth defines me and is evident in my tutoring. As I understand that people come from a variety of backgrounds and academic levels, I tailor teaching to your specific needs, helping you realise your potential.

My life revolves around education. I always start my day by reading the papers and listening to the radio. This helps me bring cutting edge developments in your subject to you, making you stand out as an exemplary student (with exemplary grades!) I was also the Chair of the Politics Society at my college and continue to engage with historical and political societies at university. Furthermore, I'm an avid reader, and this is reflected in my detailed knowledge of the subjects, as well as my enthusiasm for them!

At A level and GCSE, I did well in History and Politics, and got full marks in 3 of my Politics exams. However, I understand education isn't always easy, and I have been in that position myself. Therefore, I always approach teaching in a non-judgemental, patient and tailored way, ensuring you get the most out of our lessons. When I say I love my subjects I mean it, and it would be a pleasure to use this to help you get the grades you want, and to gain a greater passion for your subject.

About my sessions

My lessons always revolve around you and what you need to reach your goals. Firstly, we’ll address any of your concerns about a specific topic, whether it’s something you want me to go over or a term you’d like explained. We’ll then move on to the bulk of teaching and go through parts of the syllabus you’re struggling with or you didn't grasp in an essay/exam. I’ll use my knowledge and relevant resources to help you understand the subject and make sure you understand the foundations of th...

My lessons always revolve around you and what you need to reach your goals. Firstly, we’ll address any of your concerns about a specific topic, whether it’s something you want me to go over or a term you’d like explained. We’ll then move on to the bulk of teaching and go through parts of the syllabus you’re struggling with or you didn't grasp in an essay/exam. I’ll use my knowledge and relevant resources to help you understand the subject and make sure you understand the foundations of the topic at hand. From that base, we’ll go over that topic in context of your examination. We’ll look at examples in historical documents or contemporary news, which’ll make your assessed work look more sophisticated. My extensive reading means I usually know good quality examples on the spot. We’ll then look at exam questions and the skills needed to answer them. By going through and planning a response (often a question on a topic of your choice), you’ll develop your writing skills and solidify knowledge on something you’re unsure about. Finally, you’ll be able to ask any questions regarding the session, or ask for a topic to be explained again.

I’ll make sure you leave with the following; (i) any concerns resolved, (ii) a better understanding of specific parts of, and the syllabus in general, (iii) examples you can use in your assessed work, (iv) sophisticated writing skills.

I know I have reviewed Lawrence before but Josh has just had his last lesson with him (sitting A levels at mo) and I just wanted to do another review to let anyone thinking of booking Lawrence know how awesome he is! He goes above and beyond the expected. Josh has really enjoyed his lessons with him. Lawrence is studying to be a Politics teacher and whichever school has the privilege of him teaching their kids is absolutely the luckiest school ever! He LOVES his subject, is so passionate and breathes that passion into the kids he teaches. I would not hesitate to highly recommend him.

Can't praise Lawrence highly enough. My son raves about these sessions, the way Lawrence conveys his enthusiasm for the subject means my son understands it immediately. Lawrence also goes the extra mile by sending articles he reads as extra content to get the A*.
