I am an enthusiastic and very experienced English teacher, currently working part time in a 6th form college. I tutor students privately for both English language and English Literature. I am an examiner for Cambridge IGSE, Cambridge International A level English language, AQA GCSE English Language and WJEC A Level English Language. I have also recently been appointed as Lead Expert for GCSE English Language, working with the AQA exam board.
I have been teaching English language and Literature for 29 years, in secondary schools and now in a sixth form college part time. I was also a deputy head teacher for 10 years, and an education advisor for the 14-19 age group for three years.
I only tutor students who want to be tutored, otherwise it just won't work! I do an initial assessment where I ask the students about their strengths and areas for development in the subject; I also watch the students do a piece of writing. We then pull a schedule of learning together which can be altered as we go along, according to the changing needs of the students. I set homework if the students want me to do so.
