I am a qualified teacher with over 30 years teaching experience at both secondary and tertiary age ranges within Dudley and Sandwell schools and colleges. Although Business Studies and ICT was my main subject I have delivered KS3 English and Maths, KS4 English, often to challenging students or students of low ability. I am committed and hardworking and have enjoyed a successful career in education improving the life chances of young people in my care.
My hobbies include walking, especially with my dog. However, I am part of the local Rotary Club, Secretary of the local Yacht Club, sing in a choir and a member of the local gym and spa.
I currently deliver GCSE English and Maths to a year 10 and 11 student and QTS skills in numeracy (Qualified Teacher Status) at home on a 1:1 basis.
I believe learning should be engaging, challenging, inspiring and fun delivered with a mutual respect for others.
I am available for summer holiday sessions during the day.
My main roles have been Head of Business Studies, Inclusion Coordinator, Head of Sixth Form, Lead Coordinator for Diplomas in a Dudley Consortium of schools and 14-19 Coordinator. I have been Lead Assessor for BTEC courses as well as assessor for Business Studies, I successfully achieved qualified Chartered Assessor status in 2010.
I have taught in a number of challenging schools and two local tertiary colleges. I have delivered Geography to year 9 students whose teacher was on maternity leave, keyboard and computer skills to adults, English, Mathematics, A level Economics and Business Studies, life skills to low ability students. I have successfully delivered a range and breadth of subjects to a wide range of levels.
I have 7 years experience of private tutoring in English, Mathematics and Businesses Studies, at present I am delivering GCSE English and GCSE Mathematics to a year 10 and a year 11 student as well as QTS skills to a young adult who wishes to become a teacher.
My experience has given me a superior level of skill in identifying weakness within a student and providing a learning plan and supporting resources which will allow them to find success.
My style of teaching has always been student orientated, lead by diagnostic and formal tests with model answers and concise feedback. Students will be able to see from the outset what is to be achieved and how this will be achieved. I aim to establish a hardworking but interesting educational learning environment I am proud to have exceptional classroom management enabling all students to achieve regardless of their level of ability.
