Personal Description:

I have been teaching both History and English since 1998. I have a real passion for History and Literature but I have also taught English Language both in the UK and Internationally. I am a fully qualified Secondary teacher who has a high Honours degree and a PGCE. Many of my former students have been so interested in my lessons that they are now teaching English or History which is very rewarding. I really enjoy creating a real interest and thirst for knowledge in all my students and have really enjoyed over sixteen years of teaching both in the private and public sector.

Tutoring Experience:

My first wonderful teaching experience was in Cornwall where I taught History for eight years. We had so many students choosing History for their GCSE option that we had more students than any other subject. My GCSE results were the highest in Cornwall and also in the Private sector in Cyprus. I have taught English as a first and second language for many years and have a real passion for Literature as well. My experience of teaching in Cyprus both in the international school and also private tuition gave me the skills of helping many students who have English as a second language but need the IGCSE/GCSE/ A-Level for the UK qualifications.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach completely depends on the needs and level of the student involved. I have always made my lessons both in a classroom context and privately engaging and also easy to understand. When it comes to GCSE or A-Level it is essential to focus not just on content but also key skills to lift the performance of the student higher. Our first lesson would always establish where the student was in terms of content and also to focus on key areas of development to progress to a higher level.
