Personal Description:

Not only a :

Post-graduate Head of Department Teacher in Secondary State and Independent Education ( 2 schools - 1 state and 1 Independent)
Experienced History and Languages Secondary Teacher trained in UK and French Universities
Qualified and Experienced to teach English Language to Foreign Students (during summer schools and working for agencies acting on behalf of Government, e.g. refugee minors)
Experienced Examiner with OCR and Edexcel (GCSE and A-Level History through to year 13)
Trained also in Primary Education and experienced (due to my own primary-aged children)
Tutored for Birmingham and Bromley Council (Government funded education for Home schooled children)
Previously, a Consultant at PwC and KPMG

but more importantly:

a patient, stoic mum, having tried many methods of getting my own children to do homework
Highly knowledgeable, experienced and extremely tolerant of conditions which affect learning such as ASC, ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia
Excellent knowledge of all Exams in Primary Screening Tests through to SATS
Fantastic working knowledge of GCSE and A-Levels in History (and French) and all the changes in recent years (and continuing)
Great knowledge of Common Entrance Exams for many schools in the area and beyond with a History of successful entrance (not always detailed here due to teaching after recommendations)

Stopped working in schools in August 2016 to concentrate on more flexible hours in line with my own children`s personal needs.

Some of my former A level tutees have received offers for Oxbridge, KCL and other top Universities. All have agreed to be contacted should you wish, once tuition is agreed.

Tutoring Experience:

The below information is all current, except that I have not worked as a teacher in secondary school since July 2016.

2003 + Qualified Teacher of History and French - History has comprised over 90% of timetable
2014 + Work for private Tuition Company taking on Government projects such as PRU children, refugee minors, between schools
2013 + Ancillary Private Tutor (I have built up great feedback): provide support in exams for entrance to specific schools, SATS or equivalent in schools, e.g. KS1 and 2, catch-up, reading assistance, usu. phonics help
2015 - current - Provide tuition to Birmingham City Council Home-schooled History, Business studies and English IGCSE students (references provided upon request)

Tutoring Approach:

All my tuition is tailored to the individual. I complete a full assessment of needs in primary-aged children unless the parents are very specific as to what is needed, such as specific exams at a specific school. Each parent has specific requests so tuition will depend on what the tuition hopes to achieve, e.g. Common Entrance, Scholarship, catch-up, SATS

In History tutoring - many students have been face to face one has skyped from Hong Kong and others have emailed their essays to me. All variety is fine! Payment works on equivalent of a consultancy basis and time to mark work, etc, is based on an hourly rate of £50.
