PGCE: Geography Education (1991)
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...
University, Surrey. Sam is an excellent tutor who really goes out of his way to make sure you understand every aspect of the task at hand. Thanks to him I know feel far more comfortable in Maths.

PGCE: Secondary Geography (2007)
foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject. I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs. I am also able to add a value in a way that...
to be better prepared for subject areas. I generally have had very high marks in my teaching feedback from students, averaging about 4.5 out of 5.0 scale in feedback forms. I have extensive teaching in one on one sessions as well as larger classes. My approach is proactive learning where I present instruction materials but then engage students with dialogue and provide examples and exercises to better engage the student. This includes creating short tests,...
strategies to achieve their potential. I am happy to teach up to A-level for biology, chemistry, environmental science and geology. I believe the ultimate aim of tutoring is to develop students into auto-didactic learners. I aim to give the students the strategies and skills they need for successful independent learning. Many students are focused on their attainment in an upcoming exam and this requires significant focus on past exam papers and exam technique. Typically, I...

already know and do well, so let's work together on bolstering your knowledge and skills in the areas where you're less confident so you can get the best possible grade. I personally love science, and I'll try to make tutoring sessions interesting and not too painful! During a tutoring session I would expect lots of active participation from both of us (e.g… questions, talking things over, practicing), rather than a boring lecture or a high-pressure...
by playing to their strengths rather than them trying to fit into a particular box. I am currently an examiner of GCSE chemistry with AQA. My apporach to tutoring is to first find out what my tutee is looking to gain, so we have a clear goal to work towards. Together, we will then discover what approach works best - ie. to consolidate the work done in school that week, or work on weakenesses. I...


School: A Level (A*) - Geology (2013)
sat on the Trafford Gold Level Science and Sustainability board for AS level students. In the past, I have had success with students following a simple lesson structure. After speaking to the student, parent and if possible teachers, I create a series of lessons following the school syllabus. In an hour, I typically spend the first 20 minutes demonstrating the course material, ten minutes working through examples with the student and the remaining time setting...
