Personal Description:

I am a qualified and experienced teacher committed to enabling others to achieve their full potential through motivational coaching and teaching. I have taught Science in secondary schools in the UK and English as a second language (ESL) in South America. I now specialise in providing private tuition and exam preparation for individuals and small groups and, with 4 years experience of doing this, I have helped dozens of students to achieve their best grades at GCSE and A level. Many of my students have left testimonials on this and other sites. I would normally teach from my home in the Avenues in Hull (very handy for Hymers' students) but I am also able to travel within west Hull and the surroundings for which I would make a small additional charge.

Tutoring Experience:

2003 -2005, Science Teacher, Kingswood College of Performing Arts,
2013 English Teacher (ESL). British School of Language, Quito, Ecuador
2013 -16 Private tuition to numerous students

Tutoring Approach:

I have an engaging teaching style giving clear explanations of concepts and tasks with natural authority. I believe that effective learning comes primarily from detailed planning of lessons that are varied, enjoyable, relevant and student centred where it is the student’s own efforts that creates the new learning. Above all lessons must be a positive experience that builds confidence and this comes from patience plenty of encouragement and pitching tasks at the right level so that students can achieve. Students learn in different ways and methods and materials need to be selected with this in mind. I am however a believer in traditional teaching methods that place importance on developing the required understanding of the concepts that underpin a subject.
