My name is Anna and I've clocked over 100 hours tutoring on and offline in GCSE and A level Politics and English. I am an undergraduate in Political Science at the University of Birmingham, looking to help those studying my favourite subject at GCSE or A level.

Politics as a subject is about knowing your exam structure, key debates that stretch across the course and relevant examples; all of which I can help explain and offer relevant information on, alongside working on revision strategies. My strength as a tutor lies in my knowledge and passion for both subjects alongside my ability to work with alternative approaches to find out what will suit the student best. I am friendly, approachable and organised with my tutoring sessions, aiming to build on the strengths of the tutee alongside targeting areas where they may feel less confident in the run up to exams. As someone who scored near perfect UMS in my A level Politics, I know what it takes to get the top marks in the subject, as well as bring someone up to a standard they feel comfortable with. My aim in my tutoring is to make a difference, and offer a value for money service to help students achieve the grades they're capable of.

About my sessions

I ask to have a free tutor meeting with all clients prior to our first actual session in order to establish what the tutee's needs are. I'm keen to make sure our sessions are to the point and targeting areas that the student is concerned about. Generally, beyond this each lesson is tailored and different. Each student learns differently and I believe tuition should tap into that and work on building on the pupil's strength's to support areas in which they struggle.

My first tutorials are on structure of the paper, making sure that each student is aware of the key skill's and how to demonstrate them in order to obtain their desired grade. When it comes to Government and Politics A level, I'm a big believer in taking things back to basics: in my experience most A level teaching push independent learning, which whilst valuable as a skill, often leaves intelligent pupils guessing at skills such as exam structure. Each tutorial I produce an easy to follow word document to keep things as accessible as possible.


I work on a case by case basis considering the needs and wishes of the student. This can range from past paper practice, covering content or skills that have been misunderstood or skipped in the classroom, or providing and explaining example sheets which can be key to attaining higher marks.
