A Level Politics and Government Tuition For Individuals!

How much power does Donald Trump really have?
Does feminism have much to say about mens rights?
Who set up the Tories, and what is a Union?

In this class we discuss and study the AS and A2 Politics and Government certificates by AQA and OCR, which explores themes, topics, and debates regarding parliamentary politics in the UK, and federal politics in the US. We also explored themes of gender, immigration, and unions through the lens of Liberalism, Marxism, and Feminism.
I am educated to Masters Level in Political Science from a Redbrick University (University of Leeds 2019), and received a A* grade in Politics in 2010, and have taught GCSE sociology and A level Politics for 3 years whilst at University.
The lessons are structured around core themes in political theory. In EVERY lesson we use worksheets, discussion points, multi-media such as music and films, and I set homework if needed, all lessons are tailored to your needs exactly!
1) In beginner lessons we explore the basic set-up of parliamentary politics, core democratic principles, and other ways of managing States and Nations . Essays will be built around ensuring you have understood these basic principles, and I offer written feedback within 5 days.
2) Intermediate lessons are structured around questions that actively compare political systems, and we then begin forming arguments about political systems, and the ideologies that motivate them. We begin to read and explore major theorists such as Marx and Locke, but you are only required to explain what theory they advocate at this level. Essays will be built around ensuring you have understood how to form basic arguments, and I offer written feedback within 5 days.
3) We explore the validity of sources and theories within politics, and actively debate the philosophical and moral theory present needed to get a great mark in this A level. I expect you to be able to actively discuss theorists their views, and compare and contrast them by forming thoughtful arguments. I set specific essay questions that are similar to themes in your final exams, and offer critical written and in person feedback.
I am passionate about improving your grade in Politics, and am able to work with all level of students to bring out the best in them, by offering structured feedback, in which I will set out exactly what you need to do to get a high grade.

Private lessons / preparation for Grandes Ecoles competitions: economics, political science, general culture, English, French
Doctor in political science and graduate in economics (Master), I have been teaching humanities in English and French in various grandes écoles (IEP) and business schools (EDHEC, SKEMA) for more than ten years. Always respectful of the pace and needs of my students, I help them achieve their goals (preparation of files or entrance exams to high school, validation of exams ...) serenely. For ten years, my goal has been the same: to help my students to surpass themselves by communicating to them a deep joy of learning. I suggest you help you refine your file, consolidate your knowledge (general culture, economics or political science) and sharpen your skills (reflection / writing / presentation) so that, rather than arid "tests", your exams become opportunities or occasions to demonstrate your progress.

Olfa
Economy - Political Sciences - International Relations
Studies in economics, political science, international relations, can often seem very theoretical and abstract. I myself taught Bachelor and Master students when I was a doctorate, so I am well aware of it ...... what I can offer you are concrete insights into my professional experience as an economist in international organizations and a diplomat to make the link between theory and real life so to speak! Not only will this help you achieve academic excellence, but it will give you the necessary tools to develop your critical thinking and capacity for analyzing economic and political developments; which will help you define a relevant professional project. In terms of methodology, I emphasize the structure of reasoning, mastery of the syllabus, and clarity of expression. I have written several books and given numerous public speeches. I will coach you until we are both confident in your success. In addition to academic support, I also offer mentoring and coaching for professional interviews and presentations. All levels are welcome, although master's students and above can benefit the most. Double doctorate in macroeconomics and political economy, Sciences Po, Paris and Humboldt University, Berlin Languages : fluent: French, English, German, Italian good working skills: Russian, Arabic

SES courses, economics, sociology - College and high school level any level
A typical course is organized as follows: 1- Learning phase in which I present the concepts and ideas to be retained for the course. 2- Applying these concepts to be sure that you have correctly assimilated them. 3- Debrief phase with you. As I went through a preparatory class for two years, my level in SES is quite respectable. I have already given dozens of hours of lessons to many students who all come out enriched according to their words.

GCSE and A Level Revision Skills and Humanities Subject Help
This class can be tailored to your requests, whether you would like subject specific help in RS, Politics or English, or need help in more general exam preparation I can help! I achieved A*AA in RS, Politics and History at A level, and two 9s in RS and English Language at GCSE - results I could not have achieved without making my revision as effective and efficient as possible. I particularly found that understanding how to keep myself organised was essential to keeping a healthy balance of school work and free time - I am passionate about helping other students in a way that doesn't feel overwhelming.

Youssef Hazem Ali
English Social Studies (Political Science, History, Literature, Sociology)
If you are looking for someone to tutor you in social studies, then you are in the right place. I have a bachelor’s in political science (double specialization in Political Economy and International Relations) from the American University in Cairo (AUC). I am also studying a master’s level course in World Politics and International Relations at the University of Pavia (UPI), Italy. My education has been inherently multidisciplinary, considering the liberal arts nature of AUC. This means I have studied across a plethora of fields including political science, world history, sociology, modern literature, philosophy, and anthropology. I have a rich experience when it comes to tutoring! While I flexibly customize my classes to my student’s needs within the social science realm…my main class includes an introduction to political science and theory. If you are looking to understand political theoretical frameworks such as the Liberal, Marxist and Conservative traditions as well as their real-world applications around the world and during significant historical moments, then we will be reading and dissecting these various theoretical approaches. However, I can also tutor on lower academic levels, such as simple sociological research methods, historical analysis, and the like. If you need help writing academic papers, I can also supervise and guide you towards higher quality content. Furthermore, if you struggle with analyzing texts with heavy academic terminology and jargon, we can run several exercises to help improve your comprehension ability. Please, stay safe during this pandemic, and I look forward to working with you. Respectfully, Youssef

Samar
German, English, history, Powi: 5.-12. class
English, German, Powi or history. I will accompany you from the 5th to the 12th grade and stand by your side with advice and action. I adapt to your questions and your performance and step by step we approach the topic. With the right approach, any subject can be fun. I look forward to you all! PS I only give tutoring in German and am not a German teacher, which is why it is difficult to teach children who do not speak German the language first.

Tom
History, Politics & Essay Tutoring from Beginner to Advanced
My goal is to help students develop the confidence to think for themselves through the process of writing and research. Through creating an engaging learning plan with the student, to helping them articulate exciting ideas and arguments, I am able to adapt and respond to the needs of each individual. Academic History and Politics are about language and how it is used in argument and debate. In each of these subjects I will help students to find the appropriate vocabulary, to improve their writing technique, and to structure essays in the most effective manner.
