Tell me about some of your current students.
Every evening I tutor students mostly for GCSE English. My books are nearly always full so please think about booking me sooner rather later. I have a high satisfaction rate due to my ability to raise the student to a higher academic level because of my focus on methodology as well as helping the student to develop critical analysis. I have students working to towards GCSE English and A Level philosophy and English. One student I worked with for 10 years, from KS1 to A level, who has obtained a first at London University and is now reading for a Masters at UCL in Classics.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am a brilliant tutor that almost always guarantees success. I am friendly and an engaging teacher that believes learning should be fun as well as educational. I believe in providing a natural space for learning with a focus on encouraging inquiry and analysis. I also provide for free historical, sociological and philosophical context that should have been taught in schools. So if you want an all round education and help with your specific subject in developing: essay skills, understanding methodology and in critical analysis, why wait ... contact Dr Nicholas for the best educational grounding you can get !
