Hello, my name is Alan. I have been a full time teacher for 19 years. I have extensive teaching and classroom experience, in both state and independent sectors. I live and teach in East Sussex. I am in my early 40's, married and have two young children. I am an experienced teacher from 11-18 year olds. Having been a teacher for 19 years I have prepared and delivered thousands of lessons and taught hundreds of students.
I am passionate about teaching and love learning. Seeing students succeed is the best part of my job. I am a great teacher of the many classes that I have taught with a strong track record of achieving excellent results, but I am even better when tutoring 1 to 1. I can offer a bespoke tutoring service, tailor made to your needs. I am familiar with all GCSE and A’Level specifications for English, English Literature and Media Studies. I have also taught AS and A2 Film Studies and several BTEC Creative Media Production Level 3 Units. I am also familiar with Functional Skills English. I am experienced in using Google Drive as a learning and teaching resource, so can tutor live online as well. I have worked for an exam board as a coursework moderator for several years.
I am patient, a quick learner, fast to understand what a student needs to do to make progress. I am flexible, happy to find the best way possible for you to understand, progress and excel. From 19 years full time teaching I have an innate understanding that one size does not fit all. All learners are different. I am delivering the new Edexcel 9-1 English and English Literature GCSE's at the moment, but also have experience of specifications for AQA, OCR and Cambridge International.
I have taught lots of GCSE Media Studies and A'Level Media Studies too.
Regardless of whether you are an ambitious academic pushing for the new 9 or a student struggling to achieve your potential, I will be able to work with you to put together a programme to support you. I can guide and tutor for coursework as well as exam preparation.
I have also guided many A'Level students through the UCAS process.

My daughter is shy and it can take a gentle approach to get her to talk openly about any issues and Alan has far exceeded my expectations in assessing the situation and managing his tutoring style to suit with her personality.
I am assured by my daughter that she feels far more confident in the subject matter already. With GCSE's quickly approaching we are so glad that we opted for some additional tutoring and I think we've been extremely lucky to find Alan to help!
His obvious broad experience shines through and he has been very proactive in suggesting additional support that will help our son.
I cannot recommend him highly enough.
