Personal Description:

I am conscientious, enthusiastic and friendly. I tutor one-to-one in the student's home.

Tutoring Experience:

I have thirty years' varied teaching experience in both the Primary and Secondary sectors. I have also undertaken home tuition with Primary, Secondary and adult students.

My experience includes twelve years teaching English and History to GCSE and A level in the UK secondary system, eight years teaching the same subjects to the same levels in international schools in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

During all this time I have often taken on home tuition students for extra help with Primary, Secondary and University level subjects.

In recent years, my A level History students have achieved outstanding results, obtaining A*-C grades and places at highly-rated universities, such as Oxford Brookes, Exeter, Royal Holloway and Birmingham.

My 2016 GCSE English candidates achieved A* to C grades in their Language and Literature exams and are now all moving on to study for their A levels.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to build up the student's confidence by establishing their strengths first. Thereafter I identify weaknesses and gauge the student's awareness of them and motivation to put them right.

Once the student and I have agreed which areas need improvement we use lesson time to extend the student's competence and skills by undertaking thinking and written assignments that allow the student to develop these.

Any homework set will advance and reinforce the skills the student has been encouraged to bring to the lesson.
