I have a first class honours degree in History and a Ph.D. I taught History and Politics in a local grammar school for many years. I am patient, friendly and approachable and I also have three children of my own who have recently been through the GCSE/A level process and so have a wide experience of the problems that students can experience during their education. I am up to date with all the current requirements of the different examination boards. I really enjoy teaching and like being able to offer my students one-to-one attention during tuition. I am happy to offer tuition in your home (up to a certain distance from my home) or to have your son or daughter come to my home for tuition sessions.

Tutoring Experience

I taught for 27 years, mainly in secondary schools but also in Further Education where my students have ranged from 16 to 60 years. I have taught History, Politics, Psychology and Sociology up to AS/A2 level and I have a great deal of experience of helping students prepare for the requirements of these examinations and of assisting them in securing excellent grades so that they can fulfil their potential. I have also taught English up to GCSE level. Although I have recently retired, I am fully up to date with the requirements of the new A levels and have successfully tutored a number of students in History and Government and Politics.

Tutoring Approach

I believe in flexibility. Different students have different needs which often change during a period of tuition and I believe in full consultation with the students and their parents. I have a proven track record in building up students’ self-confidence, helping them cope with the demands of the examinations and helping them to make the most of their abilities.
