Personal Description:

I am a current Head of History with 18 years teaching experience across KS3-5, working in Warwickshire. I have a proven track record of securing exceptional outcomes for students at both GCSE and A level, in both Government & Politics and History. I previously taught the International Baccalaureate at KS5 in both History and Politics, and could offer support in this qualification. I remain an examiner for IB and Edexcel A level. I have previously examined for GCSE, mostly with the Edxecel board. I'm married with three children and have a breadth of experience working with and engaging young people.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a current Head of History with 18 years teaching experience across KS3-5, working in Warwickshire. I have previously worked in two schools in Solihull and Coventry at Faculty or Departmental leadership level. I have supported young people from a range of ability groups and am consequently well placed to ensure all students reach their potential, be them from the lower, middle or high ability range.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is always be based on the needs of learners, helping them to achieve their goals. I build students' confidence and at the same time ensure a suitable level of challenge that leads to rapid progress. I plan carefully for every session and establish a good balance for students between academic rigor and enjoyment, not that these are mutually exclusive. I use my insight of mark-schemes and the demands of examiners to demonstrate for students how best to reach their potential. Knowledge is increasingly vital in public examinations and so this key information I make readily available then focus on application to examination questions. I also offer model answers to show what exemplary responses should look like. I also value the importance of a positive relationship and so a healthy dose of humour is always evident in the sessions I lead.
