I have a strong passion for Geography and I am keen to educate students in understanding the world around us in a fun and exciting way. I am a firm believer that every pupil has their own unique set of skills and needs, so lessons will be tailored to suit your requirements. I also believe that learning should never be dull, so each session will provide the necessary topic information in a dynamic way. I have secure knowledge of how to best support students to become independent with their Geography revision, whilst planning interactive sessions that aids them to improve their exam technique and respond to feedback given.
‘My eldest son fell behind where he needed to be by the end of his first year of A levels. We needed to support his learning, whilst also giving him the opportunity to catch up on lost ground. We engaged a tutor- Hannah – to facilitate this. Our son found her easy to work with, engaging and importantly at that age- fun! She explained the topics in a way he understood and challenged him in the right way to improve. By the end of his schooling, he was more confident in his knowledge and his teachers had noted a marked improvement. Thank you’.
Hannah helped me achieve above my predicted grade at A-Level, she encouraged me to break down questions to check my level of understanding and then guided me to what the examination board were looking for, to achieve maximum points. Past papers are key to achieving the best results and Hannah gave me the confidence and guidance to decipher the questions, answering them in full, whilst working within the time limit. Writing bullet points, prior to answering the question, ensured I didn’t miss key points. For the smaller questions, Hannah would run quizzes and this kept my answers precise, focusing on the important details. I would thoroughly recommend Hannah as a tutor; she is kind, patient, helpful, an excellent communicator, and used different methods to help my revision.
