Thomas K

QTS General Teaching Council (GTC) Distinction (2012). BA (Hons) History, The University of Birmingham (2008).

Member since 2019 Mr Thomas K

I am an enthusiastic and able History tutor with proven results. My specialisms are History at GCSE and A Level with AQA/OCR and Edexcel exam boards respectively. My outlook is simple. I equip students with the exam technique required for success in a way that is only possible in one-to-one tuition. The vast majority of students have the subject knowledge required for success but struggle to apply that knowledge in exams. This is where I come in. I am not the cheapest History tutor in the area but I believe I represent excellent value for money given the fact that I am a Head of Dept and examiner with a proven track record in tuition. In the past 5 years my tuition results are as follows: A-Level: 88% A*-A, 100% A*-C & 100% making above/expected progress. GCSE: 81% A*-A (9-7), 100% A*-C & 100% making above/expected progress. 11+: all students have got in to their chosen grammar school.
