Personal Description:

I am an experienced teacher who believes that all children, irrespective of their backgrounds, can achieve. During my past 27 years in Education I have a enabled a large number of young people and adults to achieve their educational goals.

Tutoring Experience:

Between 1990-1997 I was a psychology teacher in FE college and a sixth form college. I taught GCSE, A Level and ACCESS courses to a range of students from 16 years old through to adults. Some of my students passed their first ever exams under my tutelage whilst others went on to continue their studies at university (including postgraduate).
Between 1997-2008 I taught GCSE and KS3 science within mainstream schools. I specialised in motivating those learners who had either "given up" or "been written off" and was successful in enabling them to achieve results that were in line with their true potential. From 2008-present I have specialised in working within special educational establishments (ranging from those learners with behavioural to those with speech and language needs). These learners' ages have ranged from primary school through to 19 year olds. I am currently head of maths and science working with extremely vulnerable and challenging teenagers and my progress with them was highly praised by a recent OFSTED inspection.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is based on a "Building Block" model.Initially I identify what are the subject areas that the learner finds particularly challenging. Once established I then tackle each area by breaking the content/tasks into small bitesize activities that gradually help to build up a learner's confidence. Eventually the learner is encouraged to tackle tasks independently and by then has sufficient confidence to tackle exam style questions.
