I am currently a Senior Examiner for Edexcel in Geography and also an examiner for General Studies, Citizenship and the EPQ. I am a senior manager and Head of Department at a Sixth Form College in London.
I previously worked as a professional travel and commercial photographer and still undertake freelance work.
My second passion is wine. I am a specialist in South American and Portuguese wines and offer guest tastings and tutorials in and around London. Next year I intend to take my WSET advanced diploma in wines and spirits. **Removed By Admin**
I have been teaching GCSE / A-Level standard for over 20 years and previously taught English abroad. I have over 15 years experience of private tuition and have worked for the same period of time as an examiner for Edexcel and AQA.
I am a former professional photographer who has taught GCSE, A-level and BTEC photography for over 20 years. I have knowledge of both 'traditional' analogue photography and also still digital photography capture, manipulation and post-production. I am very experienced in all technical and aesthetic aspects of photography, and have extensive knowledge of studio techniques, and 35mm and medium format equipment.

I believe in a student-centred approach, which can be tailored by arrangement. I like to develop a mixture of skills, concepts and knowledge. By building conceptual skills and subject-based knowledge and case studies, a student is better prepared for the pressure of the examination. But, good subject and syllabus-focus is essential. My lessons can concentrate on exam practice (using a large bank of resources), case study revision, they can be skills-based (e.g. decision-making, data response) or focus on theory and concepts or a combination of all these. Teaching and learning programmes can be organised to suit personal needs. Some students want intensive 'power lessons', others just want extra exam question practice.

Gary is very professional and contacts us before every session to confirm availability. He has also prepared work for my daughter to complete so that he is able to assess her ability. We are very happy with him.
I would highly recommend Gary as a tutor. Thank you again!
Sincere thanks to Gary as not only does he have a broad knowledge of the various Geography exam boards and topics but also he knows how to motivate the student and get the best out of them.
I would highly recommend him as a tutor.
Although we live some distance away from Fulham, these journey’s have been very worthwhile.
Being educated at home always leaves a 'gap' in learning and I think, in Gary, we should be able to tackle the A level exams confidently -please!
