“Geography is all about space, particularly the lived space of human beings and how they interact and modify their environments. It wonders about what was in a place before, and ponders, using the facts it collects, the possibilities of a place’s future history.” – John Hessler, geographer and cartographer at the Library of Congress
Geography equips students 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. GCSE Geography has never been more relevant to the future of the individual student seeking to forge a career in the modern workplace. Geography encompasses both the social and the physical sciences. The study of GCSE 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 academic pursuits and career paths.
Private tuition at LCC Learning covers all aspects of the GCSE Geography syllabus, 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, our 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 which the study of Geography leads us to ask. Our team of tutors at LCC Learning have an excellent track record in leading their students to success in their GCSE Geography examinations through private tuition. They are distinguished teachers, veterans of some of London’s top academic institutions. They encourage their students to cultivate their ability to learn independently and to pursue their own interest in the subject. Students are given guidance on the data-handling and writing skills that are essential to success in their GCSE Geography exams.

LCC Learning tutors can be seen for private tuition on a regular or occasional basis. They are able either to supplement normal classroom teaching or to provide the sole private tuition in Geography. We also aim to hone students’ examination technique. For this reason, we regularly stage mock examinations with a view to ensuring that students realise their full potential in GCSE Geography. LCC Learning offers private tuition in those key subjects most respected by leading schools and universities. Our private tuition covers all the GCSE examination boards (OCR, AQA, Edexcel and WJEC).
