Skype Tuition with Ben Wardle

To enquire please email: contactbenwardle@gmail.com

Hello! I'm Ben Wardle, a 20 year old Religion, Philosophy & Ethics Undergraduate student currently studying in London. I am currently in my final year at King's College, London. I am passionate about teaching GCSE & A Level Religious Studies and securing students the grades that they deserve. My YouTube revision videos on GCSE & A Level Religious Studies have gained over 100,000 views, and I would be delighted to offer one-to-one coaching and tuition for students sitting GCSE / A Level Religious Studies exams. I secured an A* in GCSE Religious Studies and an A* in A Level Religious Studies.

 

I provide tuition via Skype, and focus on the following areas: 

- Maximising exam performance through targeted exam technique coaching & practice exam questions. Includes attention to 'command words' and a focus on how to fulfill the criteria expected by the exam board's specification.


- Improving grades by focused coaching on how to answer exam questions in accordance with the exam board's expectations and requirements

 

- Extensive exploration of the course specification, ensuring knowledge of every single subject area that could be asked on the exam. A step-by-step approach to each component of the specification, ensuring complete knowledge and understanding of everything that could appear on the exam. 


- Coaching in evaluation and analysis, including a focus on the development of synoptic links, as well as the inclusion of sources of wisdom and authority. 


- A real focus on developing learner's confidence and self-belief, with a focus on developing a Positive Mental Atittude and a Growth Mindset at all stages of the exam preparation / revision process. 

My specialist area is Catholic Christianity / Christianity. I have extensive knowledge of both GCSE Religious Studies and A Level Religious Studies (OCR).

My Skype sessions are tailored to YOU and are led by your specific needs and requirements as a learner. 

I carefully plan each session using the following model: 

- PREPARE FOR LEARNING (starter activity, discuss spec details) 

- PRESENT NEW INFORMATION (discuss key info & ideas. Key learning) 

- CONSTRUCT (build knowledge and understanding & evaluation skills) 

- APPLY (to an exam-style question, and consider mark-scheme) 

- REVIEW (look back at what has been achieved; set new goals) 

What does this look like in a session? You will...

- Get feedback on a previous exam-style answer you have sent to me

- Talk through the specification line-by-line so that you know exactly what is on the exam. 

- Discuss the 'knowledge & understanding' required for this topic

- Discuss sources of wisdom / authority and how to apply them

- Work through a worksheet / quotes list I have prepared for you 

- Discuss how to evaluate & analyse this subject area

- Consider applications to exam-style questions

- Consider the mark scheme for these exam-style questions, including the important 'command words' and the ways to get full marks

- Attempt an exam-style question independently, then get instant feedback. 

- Review knowledge, understanding & evaluation skills. 

- Set targets for the next session, including a 'homework' question.
