“Geography is an earthly subject, but a heavenly science.“ – Edmund Burke, 18th Century philosopher and political theorist
Geography encompasses both the social and the physical sciences. The study of Geography leads students to consider questions of biology, ecology, meteorology, climatology, sociology, history and economics. Such cross-disciplinarity prepares students of Geography for a diverse range of different academic pursuits and career paths. Geography also furnishes them with an understanding of some of the most pressing problems and issues of our time: the search for raw materials, the expansion of cities, and the pursuit of sustainable growth and development on a finite, ever-changing planet. A Level Geography has never been more relevant to the future of the individual student seeking to forge a career in the modern workplace.
Private tuition in A Level Geography at LCC Learning is carried out by distinguished teachers, veterans of some of London’s top academic institutions. They have an excellent track record in leading their students to examination success through private tuition. In their private tuition they cover all aspects of the A Level Geography syllabus, encompassing both Human Geography and Physical Geography. As well as being given a strong grounding in the factual knowledge necessary to an understanding of the subject, students are also encouraged in their private tuition sessions to reflect for themselves and to exercise their judgement in answering the difficult scientific and political questions that the study of Geography forces us to ask. Our tutors encourage them to cultivate their ability to learn independently and to pursue confidently their own interest in the subject. In addition to help with geographical skills and fieldwork, they are given guidance on the data-handling and writing skills that are vital to success in their A Level Geography exams. Our private tuition at LCC Learning is also heavily exam-focused, and we organise frequent mock examination sessions for our students.
