Geography is frequently taught as a part of humanities in many schools. Yet in most leading British schools Geography as a discrete subject is part of the core curriculum in Years 7 to 9. Pupils heading to boarding school in Britain may find themselves at a disadvantage when they sit down for that first geography lesson. A Minerva tutor can provide valuable key geography skills and familiarisation with syllabus content.

Pupils with experience of selecting from different types of graphical presentation - scatter graphs, comparative, compound and divergent line graphs, pie charts and pictograms - will be well-placed to benefit from both fieldwork and classroom learning.
