I am 66 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.

Tutoring Approach

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:
Dear David,
"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. "
