About me

Hi I'm Lawrence, one of the most experienced tutors at MyTutor, especially so in the subjects of Politics and History. I have a track record that reflects this. I achieved full marks in 3/4 of my Politics exams, and A*s and As in the rest of my A-Level/GCSE History and Politics exams. Put simply, I know what it takes to get the As and A*s, and for many of my previous students (over 25 of them, having taught them collectively for over 400 hours), they end up getting these high grades and t...

I achieved full marks in 3/4 of my Politics exams, and A*s and As in the rest of my A-Level/GCSE History and Politics exams. Put simply, I know what it takes to get the As and A*s, and for many of my previous students (over 25 of them, having taught them collectively for over 400 hours), they end up getting these high grades and the college/university places that follow.


I believe in tutoring that not only deliver the grades that students want and need, but also in the vital importance of passion and enthusiasm in delivering the subject. As a result, my sessions are tailored to each individual student, and focus most on what helps them engage with the subject. I'm currently a teacher in training (going onto achieve my PGCE so I can teach GCSE and A-Level), and therefore in my sessions you essentially get the expertise, insight as well as knowledge base of a teacher, but in a 1 to 1 environment.


I truly love the subjects I teach so the tutoring I deliver is a product of that. If you want a tutor who is highly experienced, passionate, knowledgeable, adaptable and who genuinely cares in the success and education of the student, then I am the tutor for the job. If you have a read of my reviews, these sentiments are reflected in them. I hope to hear from you soon!

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.

Approaching Lawrence for help in the May before the exams is one of my best decisions. My daughter was confident that she had studied the material throughout the two year course but was still struggling with her essay approach and seemed to be stuck at an A/B+ grade level when she really wanted to push for an A*. Lawrence tailored his support and guidance to her individual needs, providing her with essay questions to practice in timed conditions. His feedback was prompt and incredibly constructive. My daughter took on board every comment and suggestion and I could see her confidence grow with every session. While she loved studying politics, she really did not know how to approach the essays and Lawrence provided an essential structure and the confidence to select key points for argument rather than trying to include everything she knew which appeared to be the recommendation of her teachers. She achieved a strong A*. Highly recommend!!

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.

Very good tutor!! My daughter enjoys her sessions with him and he is very easy to talk too and she finds his sessions so useful and it’s clears up any thing she didn’t understand from her lessons! Would definitely recommend!

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*.
