    i'm not interested in improving my physics and chemistry as i have no plans to continue them on to A2 but think i need some help with psychology and hum bio especially.

    I'd guess around £15-20 an hour?

    I had a tutor from an agency that cost £23.50 an hour (including travel) The cheapest company price I'm found is £17.50 plus travel.

    I'd look at gumtree and stuff for adds though, because the first tutor I had obviously had no idea what was required on exams etc. I now tutor psych/bio/eng/general problems myself and charge £15, and I'm a psych postgrad so know my way around the system

    My advice would be to look at ads tp find tutors like me, as this is how I eventually found a good tutor and how my tutees find me! plus it's the most afforable way

    about £20

    make sure you get a good one though

    start looking for past papers in human bio and physch now tho
    best of luck

    Revision advice: Past papers, past papers and more past papers, especially for H.Biology it will help to develop your exam technique.
