Earthlings Learning

GCSE tutoring for Earth Sciences



How the courses work

  • All courses are online using Zoom. Lessons are all recorded and stored securely online in case the students miss a class or want to watch them again .


  • Courses are designed around UK iGCSEs. We do three things really: learn the material on the syllabus, practice to pass the exams, and most importantly learn as many interesting and weird facts about the subject as we can!

  • The classes are generally based around a presentation and as much discussion and as many random tangents as the students feel like. We try to deal with even complicated topics in a relaxed way.

  • Discussion is encouraged, as is having your camera and microphone on but students are welcome to engage however they like. There's no pressure to speak up so students can take back seat whenever they feel like it.

  • Homework is generally given every other week and fulfills a lot of the assessment to check students' progress

Hello, I'm Damian and I do all the tutoring here at Earthlings Learning.

I've been teaching since 2010 when I graduated university and began teaching English as a foreign language overseas. I've worked in China, Japan, Turkey, Italy and France working with everyone from kindergarten kids to teenagers, to industry professionals.

After teaching abroad in private schools I decided I wanted to use my teaching skills for something I've always been passionate about - the environment and sustainability. So I came back to the UK and completed a Masters Degree in Environmental Management and started up Earthlings Learning in 2021 as a way of helping share this enthusiasm and knowledge with the home-education community and for people in school who might not have the option to study these topics.

I bring a real passion for the topic, an unconventional teaching background and an international perspective that's increasingly important in our beautiful, fragile and interconnected world.

In my free time I enjoy travel, hiking and board games. I'm an amateur ecologist and entomologist, participating in recording schemes and am a member of the British Ecological Society.

I've been homeschooling for a good few years and it suffices to say I’ve recommended Damian at every given opportunity. The lessons are fun and engaging and I can truly see how much my daughter is enjoying and benefitting from them.
