Geography Classes

 

  

"Expand Your World"

 

My Geography classes guide students through the UK curriculum examination phases at GCSE and AS / A-Level as well as the international IGCSE and IB (International Baccalaureate) at both SL and HL.

 

Classes can be either via Skype or in person at my house in Ham, with visits to student's homes being available according to previous arrangement and subject to my availability.

 

Study sessions can be 45 or 60 minutes in duration. Intensive examination preparation days - usually at weekends - are available for a limited time preceding the November and June examination periods.

  

 

Examination Boards And Syllabus Numbers

 

The following are the examination boards and syllabuses that I have taught and which I know intimately, thereby enabling me to help students ensure that they can fully understand what is expected of them and access the best grades possible with maximum enjoyment.
