A Cambridge graduate, Andrew has spent five years working at an outstanding state secondary school, ranked fifth in the country for pupil progress. He taught at KS3, GCSE, and A Level. Consistently awarded the highest two grades in lesson observations, Andrew is proud of having helped students achieve excellent results. 83% of his GCSE students achieved A or A* grades in 2016. He has spent many hours tutoring students to improve exam performance, and to stretch those hoping to apply for top universities.
Before becoming a teacher, Andrew worked in the admissions office of St John’s College, Cambridge, providing guidance and support for students applying to top universities.
As a teacher and tutor, Andrew believes firmly in high standards. He is excited by history, politics, and all things related to people and ideas, including languages, philosophy, and literature. His teaching success comes through sharing his enthusiasm and knowledge. His lessons are informed by thorough analysis of the course being studied, and careful diagnosis of a student’s individual needs.
Andrew is currently studying for an MA in Medieval History at King’s College London, possibly with a view to undertaking a PhD. He achieved a PGCE from Canterbury Christ Church University through the School Direct programme. Before this, he studied History at the University of Cambridge. He has A grades at A Level in History, French, Physics, and Chemistry.
When he is not teaching, Andrew enjoys running, reading, and listening to electronic music.
Andrew qualified to teach History in 2014, and holds a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) from Canterbury Christ Church University.

"An excellent tutor, well prepared for each session. He built up the complexity and challenge over the sessions so that my daughter was not overwhelmed by the demands but was stretched. Using Skype worked brilliantly, slightly to my surprise."
