I currently teach in an outstanding mixed comprehensive, with over 9 years teaching experience. The school, Dame Alice Owen's, was recently voted in the Times as the best state school in the country. I have taught at the school for 6 years. I have two young boys and a partner who also teaches. I love the outdoors, cycle 100 miles a week to and from school and have recently hung my boots up after a 30 year football career (of sorts). I love teaching and work tirelessly to meet the needs of those who I am fortunate to work with. I was fortunate enough to spend two years cycling around the world, so would like to think I am both patient and resilient in equal measure.
I have over 9 years experience, teaching mainly Business but also some Economics. I was awarded 'outstanding' in my trainee year and went straight onto complete an MA in education. I spent 3 years in a school with challenging students before being asked to return to my current school where I originally trained. My roles have been varied including head of enterprise, head of year 12 & 13 and I am currently head of Social Sciences (Business, Economics & Sociology). I have recently completed a secondment with the Senior Leadership team focusing on effective revision strategies, which involved implementing a whole school initiative. I am also an examiner for A Level Business.
I would take a flexible approach dependent on the needs of the student. I have a range of effective revision/retrieval strategies which could be used in the session, along with a wealth of teaching resources which I would be happy to share. I would make sure that the sessions are interesting, interactive and with a focus on any misconceptions the student may have. I would be happy to mark work in between sessions and showcase model answers to help improve exam technique where required.
