Personal Description:

PGCE-qualified teacher and Ex-Head of History in both the State and Private Sector. Trained to teach languages, English and History in both primary and secondary education. Qualified in three universities: Middlesex, Lancaster and Besancon (France). GCSE and A-Level examiner in History for over 10 years, having examined for Edexcel, AQA, OCR and CIE. I pride myself on being able to identify and fill in any gaps for students to have a very positive learning experience, and success, under my tutelege.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a teacher of History and French since 2003, after training to teach in Middlesex University. I have worked as a teacher ever since and built up an excellent understanding of old and new practices in education as well as great experience in working with all special needs, e.g. ASD, ADHD, ADD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, CFS, OCD.

I now work as a teacher for my local council in Home and Hospital Tuition. This is with children from Reception through to Year 11. I tutor them in English, including many who study IGCSE English Literature and Language. It is a wonderful job as it allows me to keep up to date with all key stages and end of KS testing, e.g. SATs, phonics screening.

As part of my time as a teacher I have been asked to tutor for Entrance Exams, such as 7+, 10+, 11+ and 13+ for my friends. As I have been successful in this, I decided to offer this as a paid tutor. I have enabled all my students to get into either their first or second choice, sometimes with very little time to spare. This has included in selective schools, grammars and private schools. Schools that my students have secured a place include: Henrietta Barnett, Queen Elizabeth Boys, Trinity, Whitgift, Bromley High, Croydon High, Eltham college, Habadasher Askes. Some of my A Level students have secured Oxbridge places to study Law and History.

Tutoring Approach:

All my tuition is tailored to get the max out of each type of student, whether it be by way of traditional teacher explanation / workbook or inclusive of newer technologies such as relevant apps which aid times tables, spellings, etc. In the first lesson I will complete a full needs assessment dependant on what is to be achieved and where their need lies in order to achieve it.

Most students request face to face lessons at KS1 to 3. However, Hong Kong students may enquire as to my availability during the day for **Contact Detail Removed** lessons.

GCSE can opt for a range of creative ways of delivery, such as **Telephone Number Removed** and **Contact Detail Removed**, one to one and email / **Contact Detail Removed** docs or solely via email. The latter will be for students who want assistance in improving their essays and advice for GCSE students wishing to improve their structuring of exam questions.
