Peter Kirby-Harris History, Politics and Economics Tutor Masters, Bachelors

  • Travels 20.0 miles
  • Online Tuition

I have been tutoring History, Politics and Economics for almost 15 years to students ranging from KS3 through to postgraduate degree levels. My apporach is student centred and I make sure I learn as much about the student's apporach to learning as possible in order to make the most from our tutorials. My work epxerience has been split between University and School with a hiatus where I work for Political Outreach organisations and conducted research for London based Thinktanks. I am a dedicated educator and through indidivdual tuition I have helped students improve their predicted grades and exam results and achieve their ideal choice for unviersity. 

About Me

I have been working as a tutor for both private clients and London councils for the past 13 years, originally to supplement my income but now in a more permanent capacity. I have worked with home-schooled pupils, excluded or referred pupils, those considered at risk and in care as well as high achievers looking to get into elite universities and students looking to improve their grades to open up a wider choice of university options. At university I worked with students and sixth form pupils on writing techniques and confidence. In addition I have also covered some ESOL classes during the summer holidays.

I also maintain an active research agenda with a focus on the current political, economic and historical significance of environmental issues, especially climate change and sustainability as well as the energy transitionsin the UK and globally. My research and teaching are two sides of the same coin, by doing one I help myself with the other and by researching and writing I am able to stay abreast of the changes occurring in contemporary society and infuse this into my teaching approach. In my free time I enjoy sport, the great outdoors, gardening reading, writing, travel and cooking sweet and spicy food. I am based in rural Oxfordshire, and happy to travel to clients. I do ask for a contribution from clients for time and costs for journeys outside of my immediate area.


I offer History, Politics and Economics for students aged from 14 up topostgraduate and I specialise as an exam coach and coursework supervisor, as well as covering revision schedules, home-schooling and grade improvement study
