I have a BA (Hons) degree in Politics 1979; A level Philosophy ; a PGCE: and a BA (Hons) Philosophy Upper Second 2016
I have been a Secondary School teacher since 2002, and a personal tutor for four years. My specialisms are Philosophy and Religious Studies. I have been a full time supply teacher for eight years, mainly teaching Humanities and English.
Tutoring is a collaborative process, especially at A level, where there is more onus on the student to prepare for his/her tutor sessions. I review the previous work, set an agenda with the student , and focus on achieving an agreed outcome. There is always an opportunity, especially in my subjects, for discussion to illuminate difficult points. Progress in Philosophy can vary in pace, so patience is encouraged. I usually expect students to improve their grade by at least one level, sometimes two.
