I am an A level history lecturer in a further education college. I also teach English as a foreign language to individual students, having just returned myself from two years in Europe where I taught English language and literature in a Swiss secondary school. Previously I taught history at GCSE, AS and A level for ten years.
I live with my husband, cat and young German lodger. Our two grown-up children sometimes drop in for a break from their MSc course/travels in India. We are a sociable household with a strong culture of learning.
I have a wealth of experience of teaching AS and A level history for a variety of exam boards, worked as an AS examiner for the OCR documents paper and have tutored many individual students, especially in relation to coursework related issues. I have also taught GCSE history for OCR, Edexcel and AQA qualifications and have tutored students for all these exams. I have a very wide subject knowledge, have taught a range of coursework options and am skilled at enabling my students to develop confidence in their work.
My recent experience of teaching English in Switzerland was about preparing non-native speakers for university entrance, particularly in Britain and the USA. I taught the English component of the Swiss Federale Maturite exam and prepared the younger students for the Trinity English qualification. Now back in Sussex, I teach students at a range of English levels from general conversation classes to those preparing for IELTS and the Cambridge exams.
I use a range of teaching strategies depending on what is most appropriate for the student. I always aim to build on what the student already knows and to reinforce that knowledge and understanding by making links. In teaching history I usually work extensively with sources because this is often where the student feels least confident. My aim is always to simplify the techniques of answering exam questions to a few key points. Ultimately I am trying to help my students feel confident in their ability.
My approach is similar with English, except that in this subject I will work much more on speaking and listening skills, embedding some of the key grammar points within the lesson. I usually give students tasks to complete at home to reinforce their learning.
