History and Geography
Secondary Geography Tuition
Geography is a broad subject broken down into Physical Geography and Human Geography. Physical Geography concerns natural features and key topics such as the formation of coastlines, plate tectonics and climate change whilst human geography focuses on how human activity affects the planet. Human Geography at GCSE level allows students to examine pressing issues such as environmental sustainability and effective ways to manage the world’s resources. Most Geography syllabuses require students to sit an examination as well as submit coursework based on fieldwork. Our tutors can help students excel in GCSE Geography by equipping them with the necessary skills in geographical research and investigation to deliver their coursework. As experienced teachers, our tutors can also explain concepts and theories within Geography that can often be difficult to grasp.
A Level Geography
A Level Geography is a reputable qualification which opens doors to a range of academic and professional careers including those in the fields of International Relations in the case of Human Geography or Geotechnical Engineering in the case of Physical Geography. A Level Geography builds on the skills and content gained through GCSE and examines complex contemporary issues and natural phenomena in more detail. A Level Geography students might for example examine how scarcity of water resources has the propensity to cause large scale conflict. Students of A Level Geography have to contend with learning a broad range of concepts and terminology from understanding the hydrological cycle to examining how multilateral organisations like the United Nations play a role in managing relations between states. Our tutors can help students thrive no matter which syllabus and exam board they are following.
