Our A Level Politics Tutors

A Level Politics – or Government & Politics, as it is sometimes known – is a fascinating subject. Spanning the UK voting system, the US Constitution, political theory and beyond, the challenging course requires critical thinking, detailed recall and excellent essay writing skills. 

Our A Level Politics tutors breathe life into the subject, helping teenagers get to grips with the different aspects of the course. Adept at communicating both their knowledge and enthusiasm, our tutors give students the skills and confidence they need to excel in their assessments – whether they take the form of public examinations, school tests or coursework.

Our extensive tutoring team consists of full-time tutors, first-class graduates and qualified teachers, each with substantial teaching experience and excellent university degrees. They offer a highly personalised service, tailoring their lessons to suit the needs and ambitions of their individual pupils.

Our recruitment process is rigorous. Candidates provide details and proof of their qualifications and experience, attend a face-to-face interview and are DBS checked. Only the best candidates are succeed. When we recommend a tutor, therefore, we know they will not let you down. 

How our Tutors Teach Politics

Teenagers who choose to study Politics at A Level tend to enjoy following the news and reading widely. Our tutors nurture this enthusiasm, expanding their students’ knowledge of the current affairs and helping them develop informed opinions about the world around them. Whether they are explaining the US electoral system or the development of the Labour party, they strive to convey the changing nature of politics and showcase how historical events remain relevant to today. 

Our tutors’ political awareness is coupled with detailed knowledge of the A Level exam boards. We know the different Politics courses back-to-front and ensure all of our students are thoroughly prepared for their exams. In these turbulent times, we can also help students prepare for teacher assessments, internal school exams and coursework projects. 

Our A Level Politics tutors teach both in person and online, using a range of virtual tools.  

Exam Boards we Cover

Our A Level Politics tutors cover all the main UK exam boards, including AQA and Pearson Edexcel. Key aspects of the different A Level Politics syllabi are set out below.

  • AQA: The AQA course is made up of three main sections: UK government and politics; the government and politics of the US; and political ideas. Each section of the course is assessed during a two-hour written paper, containing a mixture of medium length ‘explain’ and essay style questions. The exam board requires in-depth study of UK and US government and politics. Comparisons across the two political systems are also required.
  • Students will be required to identify parallels, connections, similarities and differences between aspects of politics. AQA hopes this will ensure that students develop a critical awareness of the changing nature of politics and the relationships between political ideas, political institutions and political processes.
  • Pearson Edexcel: Students in Year 13 preparing for a Pearson Edexcel qualification will study for three main papers: UK politics and core political ideas; UK government and non-core political ideas; and comparative politics, looking at either the USA or global politics. Each of the three components is assessed through a two-hour externally-examined paper.
  • OCR: Following a review in 2017, OCR made the decision not to redevelop AS and A Levels in Government and Politics, so this is no longer an option for teenagers today.
