Personal Description:

I am a thirty one year old female who has over three years teaching experience. Academically, I have a first class BSc. Honours Degree, a Masters (MA.) and a Secondary Physical Education (PE) PGCE (MA.). I am passionate about Geography and PE and this shows in my approach to teaching. I have a proven track record of 100% pass rate at A-Level for both PE and Geography. I am positive, highly motivated by success and I thrive on challenges that involve helping others.

Tutoring Experience:

I have over three years teaching experience, two years of which were as Head of Department (HoD) for both A-Level PE and Geography and one year as an ESL teacher at Princess Nora University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I was also a mentor, whilst studying as an undergraduate, at a high school in Cardiff. Mentoring sessions were held for those students at risk of disengagement and who were borderline. Upon completion of the programme, the students grades were significantly higher than expected; following weekly mentor meetings with me and upon completion of individual action plans with SMART goals in place. My lessons are fun, engaging and stimulating and will keep you thinking long after the lesson has finished.

Tutoring Approach:

Subject knowledge is very important and plays a large part in passing exams. I can help you to obtain that by providing additional reading material that is not necessarily in your textbook but in journal and magazine articles. This will give you "the edge" when answering your extended answers (especially at AS and A-Level). But what if I told you that knowledge is only one part?

The key factor is having the tools to utilise that knowledge to the best advantage and answer the question as accurately as possible. Understanding command words for example like "Evaluate" and "Analyse" are crucial in obtaining the best results (especially in extended essay answers). Exam and revision techniques are therefore also highly significant. I aim to show students how to work 'smarter' and not necessarily 'harder'. I combine a teaching and mentoring approach when tutoring students so that clear goals are realistic, achievable and are individual to each student's needs. We agree on an action plan using SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and within a designated Time scale) goals so the student should never feel overwhelmed or feel that the goals are unrealistic.
