This is how 3 referees rated David:
I am 65 years old married with two daughters in their late 20's.
I retired early, in August 2009, after teaching Geography from Year 7 to A level for 38 years but then went on to teach another 4 years in a Private school in Staffordshire… I am an excellent and successful teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience.
I have a friendly and caring personality with a positive outlook at all times.

Over 44 years of successful teaching in secondary educaton.
Formerly Principal Examiner for the Diploma and still a Senior examiner for Geography with Edexcel.
Examiner and in touch with the WJEC, the IB when required and extremely familiar with OCR and AQA.
I will be personally upset if you didn't achieve your target grade in the examination I was tutoring you for.
2014-17 results were excellent with six students I mentored gaining results over and above their targets with one gaining 100% in an A2 AQA paper and one other student gaining an A in his AS mock paper.
For all 11 students I mentored I played an important, pivotal, role in improving their Geography grades to levels that made a major contribution to them ALL entering the university of their choice.
A recent email from one of my A level students said:
"In my individual results for the exams I took this exam session. I have achieved an A in both my unit 3 and my unit 4 exam. I managed to achieve a Unit 4 mark that is only 8 off a perfect score on my unit 3 only11 off a perfect score.
Thank you ever so much, your guidance has helped me achieve so much and I will allways be grateful for your help and advice. "

Thanks for your quick response to my request, Eve seems to be happy now she has put a face to your name.
Hopefully she will now start to re gain her confidence with your help… It has been a rock bottom these past few weeks.
She seemed happier after your lesson on Sunday, I think you have given her hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel :)
I feel we will get on fine.
It is still early days and already I can see a difference. So i'm looking forward to carrying on.
On this basis I can only say all is very positive and I would be happy to recommend him to others.
only had 3-4 meetings with david but in that short time frame he made a huge impact
would recommend to anyone needing help with geography
Managed to engage an unconvinced teenager.
Responded to our brief with positive ideas.
