Personal Description:

Mocks Looming? Struggling with time management? Worrying about Exam skills?
What is the solution?… Get yourself some extra tuition to build your confidence and improve your grades.
I am a fully qualified teacher, GCSE and A level examiner. I have a degree in English, Theatre and History and teach GCSE and A level students at present.
I have a Masters Degree in Shakespeare and Education.
I usually suggest a free 1/2 hour introductory session with the student and the parents. However if exams are looming sometimes it is best to just get straight into the tutoring sessions.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught GCSE and A level for the past 17 years both in the maintained sector and independent schools including candidates for common entrance. I have tutored successfully for the past 13 years. I am fully conversant with the requirements for all the exam boards and have been a senior examiner for 15 years.
I have also worked as a Drama and English teacher with Home Educated students.
I have been involved with "intervention" work. Ensuring that borderline D/C and B/A students achieve their potential.
I have recently completed course updating myself on the requirements for the new examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I feel that students benefit enormously from one to one sessions where we are able to focus directly on their individual needs. I endeavour to make the sessions relaxed and focused. My examiner knowledge enables me to focus the students sessions on refining their skills to enable them to achieve the highest marks. Students are always surprised about the amount of work we get done in one session.
I prefer to tutor in my own home in a designated space as I have all my resources here. I like to ensure that the student feels that they can come knowing that they can work on anything they need to, not just what we have discussed the previous session. Having the student in my study ensures that I can access any relevant resources immediately and without distractions.
