GCSE Geography Tutors
The world around us is as fascinating as it is fearsome. When you think of Geography, what comes to mind? The natural or the manmade? As a GCSE Geography student, you’ll be delving into both. From terrifying tornadoes to tranquil lakes, from bustling cities to isolated hamlets, GCSE Geography covers it all. There are few subjects more useful than Geography, as you’ll develop a solid knowledge of the world around you and its current population. Whether you’re looking to save the world, or seek the thrill of a storm chaser, GCSE Geography is the first key step of many journeys.
Unfortunately, many students find Geography intimidating. The sheer amount of information, key terms and data can be overwhelming to say the least. If you’re confident in your abilities as a geographer, that’s great! But even then, as the reality of exams starts hitting like a wave, you could find those nerves of steel beginning to erode. Either way, Tutor Desk has your back. Our highly qualified and experienced private tutors are ready and waiting to swoop on in and provide you with everything you need to bag that A*.
PREPLAN YOUR ROUTE
There are a number of things that can hold you back on exam day: forgetting key points, running out of time and misunderstanding a question are probably the most common. Think of these issues as sediment which needs to be removed. The great thing about past papers, is that they act as a sort of filter, separating your strengths from your weaknesses. If you can identify and resolve the areas which are holding you back, you should be sailing through exam day. Here at Tutor Desk, our private tutors can supply you with as many relevant past papers as you need. In addition, your tutor will have a thorough understanding of what an examiner will be looking for, meaning that they can not only mark your papers effectively but also talk you through any areas which need work.
MAP OUT YOUR REVISION
Geography revision can be daunting. With seemingly endless reams of key terms, theories, case studies and ideas to remember and understand you’re probably feeling the pressure. Don’t panic though, our private GCSE Geography tutors are on hand to ensure that you stay cool, calm and collected throughout the revision period. Without the effective use of time management, you could end up resorting to a cramming session shortly before exam day, and that’s a sure-fire way to fail. Your tutor can prepare a handy revision timetable tailored to your specific strengths and weaknesses. With one to one sessions calling for proof that you’re not straying from your schedule, procrastinating won’t be an option.
CASE STUDIES AND THE 5 W’S
Case studies are a key tool for the GCSE Geography exam. It is crucial that you learn a good mixture of case studies so that you can fit them to any question which may arise on exam day. Once you have chosen which case studies to focus on, you need to make sure that you know them thoroughly enough to apply them.
Think of a case study, and remember the 5 W’s:
- What happened?
- When did it happen?
- Where did it happen?
- Why did it happen?
- Who did it affect?
If you can give full answers to each of these, then you probably know it well. Our private GCSE Geography tutors will have a strong knowledge of the necessary case studies, and will show you how to use them to their full potential.
EXPLORATION OF THE KEY TERMS
It’s not just case studies that you’ll need to have stored away in that memory bank. GCSE Geography involves a whole load of key words and terms, which means your memory will be getting a work out. Sometimes the trickiest part is determining how much information you’ve actually taken in. Our private tutors can help you to compile a list of key terms so you have them all in one convenient place, and prepare memory tests to make sure you’re taking it all in.
Don’t start your journey without the right gear. None of those climbers beat Everest without a good bit of training, otherwise we doubt their flags would have made it past the first mile. If you’re anything short of certain on your ability to ace the exam, don’t struggle alone. Tutor Desk’s private CGSE Geography tutors are the best of the best, and will dedicate their time to your success.
