I am a recently retired secondary school teacher. Married for 41 years, my wife, also retired, worked as a customer services officer at a local bank. We have two children, a daughter aged 33 and a son of 29. I love all sport with golf and fitness currently my two main interests. In earlier years I played tennis, squash, football and cricket. I have a broad range of taste in music and love reading. We have two cats called Mr Bond and Miss Tabitha.
I began my career as a PE teacher and became head of department in 1975, before completing an in-service B.ED degree four years later. As a member of staff at a newly formed comprehensive school, I was given a full time secondment at Sheffield University to take a masters degree focusing on sociology and psychology. Following this I began teaching GCSE Sociology and A level Sociology and Psychology. For the last 25 years of my teaching career I was head of Sociology/Psychology at Highfields School in Matlock, Derbyshire where I gained considerable experience of both GCSE and Advanced level teaching. Over a long period of time the grades my students achieved were impressive. I have recently marked both GCSE and A level Sociology for the AQA board.
Since joining First Tutors in January 2015, my tutees have achieved the sociology grades they have needed for degree courses, diplomas or employment.
I love the subject I teach, which helps enormously when encouraging and motivating students. Whilst I accommodate a range of learning styles, I am committed to teaching both subject content and the skills which examiners are expecting to see. The student's enjoyment of the subject is of considerable importance, but as a tutor my commitment, rigour and organisational skills are of equal importance. I strongly believe in working as a pair, to give each student the best chance of the highest possible grade with university and employment in mind!
