Hi! I am one of those teachers who think they are young in mind and heart, with my two boys helping to keep me on my toes!!
I am a subject specialist as I studied Sociology both as an A-level (A grade) and at university (2:1).
I have over eight years experience of teaching A level Sociology to both Year 12 and 13. Teaching the AQA specification, the units I cover are Education, Families and Households, Research Methods, Crime and Deviance and Beliefs in Society. I am also an examiner so well versed with what students are expected to produce under exam conditions.
I have taught in a large sixth form college and am now in a small college in Wokingham. I also have tutored 1:1 privately for the last four years with great success.
My approach is firstly identifying areas of weakness. I primarily make use of powerpoints, handouts and set homework essay and small mark questions. I am happy to adapt to whatever method suits a student and am often told that I am quite laid back and can make the material easily accessible and understandable. I tend to prefer more discussion based 1:1's and recommend wider reading and documentaries to watch.
