"I just wanted to write to say an enormous thank you for all your hard work with my son on his Politics and History revision. I know he found the sessions hugely beneficial and from my perspective, you were a steady rock throughout the process. We could not have asked for more in a tutor — your commitment and attention to detail were second to none"Mother of A-level Politics and Pre-U History student
"He has been absolutely brilliant. He is always very patient and kind. He has provided excellent lessons and the children have learned a lot. My son got an A* and an A in his History papers, without a doubt he would not have achieved this without Josh’s help"Mother of 16+ candidate
The Oxford History Aptitude Test (HAT)
Students often feel a little uneasy about the Oxford HAT at first, because its format has changed over time, and because it is very different from A-level exams. To make the test a less daunting prospect, I have created an introductory guide for candidates as to what it entails and how best to prepare.
The Rise of the IB
The International Baccalaureate is now on offer at 194 schools across the UK, educating over 5000 students. The UK has happily ambled through the last half of a century with dreams that the A-Levels are the best assessment for eighteen year olds. Whilst most of us would have agreed, clearly others have been left wondering if there is a better option.
