Personal Description:

I obtained my degree from the Open University whilst bringing up my children, then obtained a Post Graduate Certificate in Education at Portsmouth University. I am a Grandma but also have a severely ill partner and have to be at home with him 24 hours a day. I have been a keen Sportswoman (Scuba diving, Sailing, Mountain walking, etc.) and still play badmington twice a week.

Tutoring Experience:

Before I qualified as a teacher I taught at a private international college in Bembridge (1974-1982). After obtaining my PGCE I have taught in several schools in various places Isle of Wight, Zimbabwe, Turkey and Kenya. My first private tutoring was to 2 children cruising from the U.K. to and around the Caribbean Islands (1991-1992) Since I retired (1999) I have been a Tutor both in Scotland (where I was also a live-in Grandma) and here on the Isle of Wight which has meant I have had to keep up with the many syllabi changes. Since February 2016 I have only been able to teach if the student comes to my home

Tutoring Approach:

I always follow the syllabus. I give homework to check that the student has understood the lesson and I always start the next lesson with working through and marking the home work as I go. If the home work is correct we move on to the next part of the syllabus. I use the internet and have found experiments etc. on **Contact Detail Removed** to illustrate my lessons
