I am a highly qualified, mature and experienced teacher of history. I am absolutely passionate about my subject and have taught people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. I have been teaching for twenty years, and I am also a mother of four, so I understand education from the perspective of a parent as well!
I taught history undergraduates at Hull University for 13 years and have also taught at several local sixth form colleges. I am currently employed as an A level History teacher.
My student feedback has been consistently excellent, and I contributed to the 100% grading in the National Student Survey which was achieved by my small team in the last two years of my employment at Hull University. In addition to my experience of undergraduate teaching and assessment, I also work as a team leader and examiner undertaking A-level and GCSE marking in History for the Edexcel exam board and have been examining for over ten years. I have also marked for the AQA exam board and have advised on the development of content for Edexcel.
I also run my own history classes and workshops and work as a private tutor for local A level and GCSE students, as well as running art history trips abroad and in the UK. My tutees have received great results and given excellent feedback.
I was the only student in my year to gain a first class degree; subsequently I was the only student on my MA course to receive a distinction. I have a full clean driving licence and a recent enhanced DBS certificate, and recently completed the ‘Prevent Strategy’ training online.
I have worked for exam boards for many years so I understand how exam papers are put together, and can guide students in the right direction in their revision. I also specialise in the structuring of essays and other coursework, as well as analysing sources, and can help students to enjoy writing and researching. Achievement and enjoyment should go hand in hand and I always focus on the needs of my students as individuals.
