Tutoring Experience

I have over 17 years teaching and tutoring experience for GCSE and A level Geography.
I am an experienced A level examiner with over 15 years examining experience. Over the years I have seen and marked thousands of A level Geography papers and so have a very good understanding of what it takes to get the top grades. As an A level examiner team leader I monitor other examiners to check that they are marking correctly and so have an in depth understanding of what student answers in Geography exams should be like in order to secure those top grades. I specialise in exam performance and technique. I can also help you to develop your case study knowledge.
I provide tuition for all Geography specifications and I have recently trained other teachers about the new A level Geography specifications and the new 9-1 GCSE's. I can also help out with any non-examined assessments such as A level fieldwork and coursework.
I am a highly skilled practitioner with excellent subject knowledge and have a proven track record of outstanding GCSE and A Level results. I have helped many tutees secure the grade that they need in Geography. Many of my students go on to top Universities to study Geography. In recent years I have had students go onto Oxford to study Geography and have also helped these students with their applications and interview technique.
I am also a teacher trainer for an exam board. I run training sessions for teachers and give feedback sessions to schools on student performance after summer exams. I am CRB (DBS) checked.

Tutoring Approach

I am excellent at developing exam technique and boosting student confidence and exam performance.
I provide all past papers, mark schemes and additional resources if required. As one of my tutees you will have access to some of my study and revision resources via my online cloud storage.
I can provide regular weekly or monthly tuition or one-off intensive revision sessions.
I also provide online tuition. Sessions are run via web cam at an agreed time. This is very popular and in this case I email documents or give you access to my online cloud storage area to resources such as exam papers that we then use during tutoring sessions. I will also mark and give feed back on any past questions or papers that my tutees complete.
