What do we offer our students?

The jump between GCSE and A-Level is enormous and most students are often unprepared for this academic development. Students often struggle with the increased workload and independence that comes with being an A-Level student. At LEC Education, we navigate our students through this tumultuous period and guide them with academic A-Level success. Our support isn’t simply limited to their academic progress, but we also support students UCAS applications, references and work experience to ensure that they are completely prepared to go to university.

English Literature

  • Students must construct perceptive, assured and sophisticated arguments.
  • Incorporate critical concepts and mature expression
  • Engage with how meanings are shaped by the methods used.
  • Clear connections between literary texts.
  • In depth understanding of context and historical significance.



At LEC we offer very concentrated and directed tutoring in A-Level Maths. We follow an overarching course that covers all the A-Level content and lays particular focus on exam technique and exam style questions. A level mathematics builds from GCSE and introduces calculus and its applications. It emphasises how mathematical ideas are interconnected and how mathematics can be applied to various situations using algebra and other representations. Our targets for A-Level students are to:

  • Lay a strong foundation for further study by understanding important mathematical processes.
  • Extend Mathematical skills and use mathematical knowledge logically for problem solving
  • Generalise mathematically and understand that mathematics can be used for problem solving in context
  • Making students more independent and promote self learning and evaluating their work themselves

The content we cover during Year 1 and Year 2 are as follows:

  • Proof
  • Algebra and functions
  • Coordinate geometry in the (x, y) plane
  • Sequences and series
  • Trigonometry
  • Exponentials and logarithms
  • Differentiation
  • Integration
  • Numerical methods
  • Vectors
  • Statistical sampling
  • Data presentation and Probability
  • Statistical distributions
  • Statistical hypothesis testing

Section B:

  • Mechanics
  • Quantities and units in mechanics
  • Kinematics
  • Forces and Newton’s laws
  • Moments


At A Level, students explore Chemistry, Biology and Physics in greater depth than at GCSE. Pupils are introduced to exciting new theories, unfamiliar experiments and fresh scientific issues. Fascinating as they are, the A Level science courses are designed to challenge pupils, and students often feel they would benefit from some extra help. Our A Level Science tutors give students the support they need to shine in their examinations. Whether your child is a budding medic or an anxious physicist, our tutors will unlock their academic potential.

Our A Level tutors cover all exam boards, including OCR, AQA and Edexcel. Listed below are key aspects of the Chemistry, Biology and Physics syllabi.


OCR, AQA and Edexcel also assess students’ practical skills. Regardless of the exam board, all students sit three written papers.

  • Physical Chemistry (e.g atomic structure, bonding, kinetics, thermodynamics, energetics, equilibrium, acids and bases).
  • Organic Chemistry (e.g alkanes, alkenes, alcohols, amines, polymers, DNA, chromatography, aromatic chemistry).
  • Inorganic Chemistry. (e.g the halogens, the alkaline earth metals, transition metals, Period 3 elements).


OCR, AQA and Edexcel assess students’ theoretical understanding and practical skill.

  • All three exam boards cover the following topics: Biological Molecules, Cells, Genetics and Evolution, Disease, Organisms and their Environments, and Immunity and Infection. They also have modules dedicated to the development of practical skills.
  • Regardless of the exam board, all students sit three written papers.


OCR, AQA and Edexcel ask students to display strong theoretical understanding and practical skill.

  • All of the exam boards cover Forces and motion, Electron, waves and photons, Astrophysics, Particle physics, Medical physics and Thermodynamics. Students also sit exams assessing their practical skills and ability to analyse data.
  • Regardless of the exam board, all students sit three written papers.
