I am a teacher of Business Studies and also the Head of Department at the school where I teach. I also teach Psychology at A Level, but happy to also teach GCSE Psychology.
I have been teaching since 2004 in two large schools. I teach GCSE business up to A Level, including Applied Business and BTEC Business. I also teach AQA Spec B psychology at AS and A2 Level. Happy to support BTEC students who need additional support for new BTEC units, particularly Unit 2, 6 & 7, the external exams.
I offer students, who are struggling or need a boost in psychology and business studies, the support they need to achieve good grades as far as this is possible. I will meet the student at their point of need and build on strengths while improving areas of weaknesess. Students will need to be dedicated and willing to put in the time to make a difference to final outcomes.
I believe that one to one or small group work is an effective intervention to support students to aim for their target, or better, and understand fully that for some students they may require more time to read, reflect and to address questions, in addition to having time to plan what they need to do before they start a task.
I believe strongly in stretching and challenging students and supporting students to find their own understanding and then, using scaffolding, to bridge the gap to take them further and in order for them to gain the higher thinking skills required for good analysis and evaluation.
