I have been coaching students in the TSA and other Critical Thinking Assessments for the past four years. I have delivered this course in previous years, and have worked with a number of students who have been successful in these exams. Many have been invited to interview and ultimately offered places at their chosen institution. I have experience tutoring both sections of the exam, and have worked with students preparing for TSA Oxford (Section 1 and 2), TSA Cambridge (Land Economy, Section 1 only), and TSA UCL (ESPS, ISPS).
