Personal Description:

I have been a tutor for over twenty years and have tutored children, young people and adults at all levels from primary to post-graduate.I am now semi-retired so I do not 'take on' many students. I have particular expertise in teaching English Literature/Language and History to 'A'-level. I will usually travel to the student's home and am prepared to accept small group work on occasion. I have also taught students online (via skype). I set homework and I mark it. Often homework can be delivered via email. I am a Principal Examioner with the International Baccalaureate (IB). - an international exam board with rigorous standards. My interests include history, gardening, cricket, poetry and walking my 9 year old black lab.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been Head of Department in a variety of selective and comprehensive schools in the UK. I have taught in London, Buckinghamshire and in the North-West. I presently teach Linguistics, English and History to adult students for the Open University. I have also taught and examined English and History to both GCSE and A2 level. I have experience of teaching Maths, Latin and English as a Foreign Language.

Tutoring Approach:

I am approachable and friendly as well as having considerable experience of teaching students at all levels of competence & expertise. I enjoy teaching and am patient and helpful. I make the subject interesting and always check that the student grasps the idea being presented to her/him. I set homework (and I mark it) regularly.
