Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified teacher with more than 20 years experience of teaching secondary geography at an independent school and working as a tutor on the University of Chichester Schools Direct geography course (training future teachers). I am aim to convey my passion for the subject to my students and help them to develop into first class secondary school teachers.

I am married with two children and live in Gosport Hampshire.

Tutoring Experience:

During my 20 year teaching career, I taught geography to the 11 to 18 ages and held the posts of Head of Geography and Head of the Humanities Faculty. I have extensive experience of teaching GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate Diploma exam classes and my students have tended to meet or exceed expectations. I have also helped students to prepare for Oxbridge entry.

In addition to the teaching, I have worked as a sixth form tutor and I have experience of helping students with personal statements for UCAS forms and job applications. I have also worked as an A Level geography examiner.

I am also a qualified Executive Coach and I offer coaching support for students struggling with a number of challenges including: lack of motivation, decision-making, exam stress and study skills. For more information about my coaching please visit my website: **Web Address Removed**

I have considerable experience of one-to-one tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I focus very much on the learning style of the student and design my approaches accordingly. My style is friendly and I am very patient with my students. When preparing students for public exams, I focus on the requirements of the questions and I have a knack of helping students to apply their knowledge and understanding to the requirements of the question. I am thorough in my marking and correcting of work and I give timely and useful feedback.

I am also a qualified executive coach and I provide coaching to support students with exam stress, poor motivation, decision-making (such as UCAS and careers) and problem solving.

I provide a high standard of tutoring and I expect similar efforts from the tutee.
