Hello all! I am Imtiaz, I am a qualified school teacher specialising in English language, English literature and history. I am the head of the Humanities department at an independent school and thus responsible for the academic achievements of over 180 students under my care. I am very well organised, greatly resourced and have a passion for teaching and educating young people. I have a valid DBS and child protection and safety certification alongside First Aid training. I am acutely aware of the curriculum requirements of students studying English at key stage level 3 and 4. I am also a GCSE examiner for a major exam board which gives me the advantage of knowing how to conduct successful examinations procedures for private and in house candidates.
I have taught in secondary schools for a number of years including state and independent sectors. I have also been a tutor since 2009, running my own tuition centres and supervising a team of tutors. Currently I am a teaching at an independent London secondary school heading the Humanities department. I have been involved in three Ofsted inspections with the most recent one giving me much praise and admiration from Her Majesty's Inspector (London head); For example, 'work in history on the Holocaust includes references to other human tragedies of the 20th and 21st centuries.’ ‘One of the school’s current initiatives is getting pupils to read more widely. This is proving successful and pupils’ reading skills and appreciation of different types of writing, from poetry to fiction, are improving well.’
I believe in a fool proof method to teaching, making it easy to understand any particular subject. I believe in teaching according to assessment objectives which are essentially what the examination boards seek before any grading criteria are set. I provide all resources and materials, including past papers, standardisation materials, mark schemes and lesson plans. I am very transparent and open and therefore I am more than willing to work with students / guardians / parents and work out the best pattern of learning and revision. With GCSE examinations approaching May to June it is critical to prepare and set a legitimate timetable of study to see them through.
