Tutoring Approach


*Mock interviews*
I ask the student an Oxford style interview question, and provide a written report based on their answers. I then send links and book recommendations based on their interview. I will ask questions based on the Oxford syllabus

*Personal statement advice*
Written and verbal feedback. I have a great deal of experience in this area.

*Tutoring*
I tutor for Politics, Religious Studies, and Economics at A-level. I also act as a tutor for English and Maths GCSE.

Luke's book recommendation and advice on tacking the TSA was clear and helpful. Luke's lesson also made me feel more reassured and less anxious in taking the TSA which I felt was important especially because the TSA was only a few days after the lesson!

Philosophy Mock Interview

Luke offered me a really tough mock philosophy interview, which gave me a sense of what the real one looklike. He also send me related materials to help me grasp some philosophical ideas in a short period of time. Thanks to him my real interview was no longer daunting. Thank you Luke!

The mock interview for PPE offered by Luke was a great help for me - with Oxford-style questions chosen based on past questions and the newest trends in the curriculum, I have come to realise my own strengths and weaknesses, and his suggested readings (especially the part on logic and democracies) are particularly useful. I am much better equipped for the interview now - thank you Luke!
