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.

American politics and its impact in the world| Comparative approach
Do you want to understand the Trump phenomenon? Does the Democratic Party have a chance for a comeback? The focus of this class is to learn more about American politics and the pressing challenges that they will face in the next decade. Is American society becoming more capitalistic and conservative or is there something else going on? How can we address the polarisation in national politics? Is the local government the solution? What is the role of lobbyists, think tanks, and interested groups in all this? These are some of the questions that we will address. I can be flexible about the schedule so let me know if you are interested but cannot make it due to conflicting schedules. I will try my best to match your schedule.

Preparation for the IEP exam (especially concerning the QC)
This is a method or knowledge course, as you wish, regarding preparation for the IEP competition. The themes of QC being the same as those of last year (which I prepared), I still know them very well. In addition, in history and in English the program has not changed, but anyway you do not pass these tests this year. If you need new knowledge, I can bring it to you, if you need a method (the most important element even if we do not necessarily realize it at the beginning) I can help you with lots of tips that will make your copy go from a 10 to a 15! Whatever happens, I will be able to adapt to your needs.

I also give feedback every fortnight to let my students know how they are progressing.

Social Science for Class IX & X (CBSE)- anyone who is struggling to grasp the concepts, this class is for you.
Social Science is the building block of any student's learning career because it opens many avenues of experience. Having done bachelors in Social Science myself, I am more than eligible for taking this class. The class would not be very strict but would be a learning curve for those who want to pursue social sciences further. The class would be a give and take relationship, wherein both student and teacher contribute into getting a desired and optimum result. Thank you.

Political Communication, Public Speaking & Presentation
▪️ The course module is adapted to the student. The summary will be communicated during the first lesson. I teach you to speak and / or write with an approach of the sciences of political communication, international relations, social and human sciences while convincing the person (s) in front of you with several negotiation techniques. ▪️ The techniques used will improve your level of confidence in your public presentations and storytelling. This course is for those who want to create and develop communication skills for public speaking and presentations, even in your everyday life. The communication skills you learn in this course will change your life. Some of the communication skills used will teach you how to influence others on an unconscious level and give you success with individuals, groups and the public. ▪️ Political communication is about the creation and exchange of ideas and opinions between citizens, public officials, political institutions and related entities, such as the media. It includes discourse throughout the political process in local, state, national and international political systems, as well as how political information can be exploited for political ends or to achieve political goals. People with a background in political communication may work in policy advice, the foreign service, market research, public relations, journalism and digital media, community organizing, lobbying, political campaigning, or others. related fields. ▪️ BUT !! in order to achieve your goal you must master public speaking which is the process or act of giving a speech in front of a live audience. Public speaking is generally understood to be formal, face to face, speaking from a single person to a group of listeners.

Political Science, International Relations and Government
This class is aimed to provide guidance and help for anyone studying political science, government or international relations. I aim to structure all my lessons to broaden my student's worldview, challenge their assumptions and test the logic of their arguments. I am able to bring a unique synthesis of perspectives to all my lessons to help my students to use political science, government and IR theories to analysis current global issues. I also have a strong background in essay writing and logic which I use to help test and strengthen the theses of their essays. As this is an ever-evolving field, I feel learning is very much a two-way process, and try to use dialogue, discussion and contextual materials and examples to build the student's understanding. I really enjoy this field and try to bring my enthusiasm, knowledge and experience to every class I teach.

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.
