Sociology is an interesting and rigorous academic subject with a broad range of content. It is the study of society and human behaviour, exploring topics such as gender equality, race and culture, politics and class structures. Students use data and empirical research to explore these social issues from different perspectives.

Sociology is taught at A Level and university level. Due to high levels of demand, Sociology specialists also offer A Level taster lessons for Year 11 students, university guidance, and personal statement support. This has proven helpful for students wishing to study Sociology at university without prior experience. Through discussion and written tasks, our students develop a mature and sophisticated understanding of real issues in our society such as inequality, an ageing population, and incarceration. They develop clarity of thought and become effective communicators, verbally and in writing.

Sociology teachers have experience teaching the A Level curriculum in high performing UK schools. We encourage students to read widely to develop a good knowledge of current affairs and social issues. In person or online, lessons deliver the A Level Sociology content in an accessible and engaging way. As exams approach, the focus is on essay planning, model answers, and exam technique.

"My son thoroughly enjoyed his lessons with Joye. He is fun, creative and very knowledgeable. His experience and insight really benefited us when it came to the exam process and he taught my son effective revision strategies to use during study leave. My son has thrived under Joye’s tutorship and we can’t wait to use him again for his younger sibling! Thank you."

"My daughter loved Nicole and couldn’t stop smiling when she came off the Zoom call. It shows that sometimes it just takes a different approach for things to click! We couldn’t have asked for a better teacher."
