Personal Description:

I am an experienced English, Film Studies and Media Studies teacher, having taught in secondary schools for 25 years. In addition, I was a senior examiner for GCSE English Language for fifteen years (until 2012) and am currently a senior moderator for GCSE English Language and Literature, as well as being a GCSE subject advisor for English, so I have kept abreast of developments in exam specifications.

I value the role a teacher, coach and mentor can make in the life of young learners who feel frustrated by their inability to grasp what they need to do to achieve their potential in schools.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught English in secondary schools for 25 years. I have been Head of English for seven years and assistant Head of Sixth Form for four years.

I have taught GCSE English Language and Literature, as well as A Level English Literature, English Language and the combined English Language and Literature courses.

I have also taught GCSE Media Studies and A Level Film Studies.

Tutoring Approach:

I know well the frustrations some students experience in schools, particularly in English where they simply don't get what is expected of them. I take a patient, personal and careful approach to developing confidence with the demands placed on young learners, especially in relation to examinations at GCSE and A Level, and seek to work with them to find the most effective approach to tutoring.
