Personal Description:

I am a friendly and approachable tutor, with a passion for my subject and the success of my tutees!

I have a wide experience in education, having taught from years 5 to 13. Having recently returned to university to study a MSc, I have up to date, first hand experience of the rigours of a Russell Group university at Postgraduate level.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching Geography for eight years, in both the state and independent sector. I have recently taught at St Paul's school (boys) and their Prep school Colet Court where I gained an excellent knowledge of the CE13+ requirements.

I have an excellent subject knowledge and academic background and I am experienced in teaching and tutoring the following exam boards at A Level: Edexcel, AQA, Cambridge International Examination as well as the IB. I have taught both AQA and Edexcel at GCSE. Furthermore, I am an examiner for Edexcel for both GCSE and A Level, giving me an insider knowledge of exam skills and techniques. I have taught Sixth Form students throughout my teaching career, and have assisted in UCAS application writing and am happy to help in this area as well.

I have a Secondary PGCE in Geography from the Institute of Education, (University of London), a 2:1 BA in Geography from University College London, as well as my more recent MSc in Globalisation (Merit) from the same institution.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a relaxed and friendly approach to tutoring, but one equally focused on success. Ensuring a positive learning environment for my tutees, where they are engaged in their learning is a priority. I achieve this through adapting my tutoring style to meet the needs of the individual student.
My tutoring focus lies in building excellent subject knowledge, combined with an understanding of exam technique and skills requirement. My experience as an examiner enables me to guide students through essay writing in examination conditions, as well as share the expectations of the exam board with my student. I have a wide experience with revision and study skills.

Online tutoring is becoming increasingly popular, so if you are further afield I am still able to offer you a personalised one to one session. With the use of webinar (online meeting) software there is the added benefit of being able to record sessions to watch back at a later date. And it is free and easy to use. I offer a discounted rate for online tutoring.
