“Politics is the art of the possible.” – Prince Otto Von Bismarck, first German Chancellor
Politics permeates every aspect of life in modern society. A strong awareness of the realities of politics – the grand themes of ideology, public reasoning and power as well as the day to day problems of democratic governance – are necessary to success in many career paths. Students of A Level Politics not only learn how they may enhance their democratic citizenship, but also how to understand opposing points of view, to construct well-reasoned arguments, to gather evidence, and to analyse and evaluate sceptically claims made by others. Such skills are of course highly valued by both universities and employers, as well as being essential in careers such as law and business.
Private tuition in A Level Politics at LCC Learning is carried out by experienced, enthusiastic teachers from top London academic institutions who have strong track records in leading their pupils to examination success in Politics. In their private tuition they teach all the modules of the AS and A Level Politics curriculum. During private tuition sessions, students learn how to navigate the controversies and complexities surrounding ideological conflict, the British and American constitutional systems, and the seeming paradoxes of democratic participation, as well as political philosophy and theory, immigration, feminism, multiculturalism and human rights. The A Level Politics syllabus requires that students be thoroughly acquainted with current affairs and to gather recent information that is relevant to the topics covered on their Politics syllabuses. Accordingly, our private tuition sessions aim to foster in them the habits of independent inquiry and research – habits which will be essential to them in their university careers. Students are encouraged to engage fully with the fascinating intricacies of political thought and action. Our private tuition sessions are also heavily exam focused. Students are drilled in appropriate exam technique as well as in the all-important essay writing skills.
