This is how 2 referees rated John:
An enthusiastic Geographer who has a passion for science and the natural world. I'm also an experienced traveller and have taught in enlightening places such as India and Gambia. I have worked on conservation and education projects in places like Northern Cyprus, where I worked towards protecting the Loggerhead and Green turtle populations in the Mediterranean area. I'm an avid reader and enthusiastic sportsman who enjoys mountaineering and wild camping. Recent trips to the Alps and Patagonia.
I am currently the Head of Geography at a large secondary comprehensive school (1800 students) in Warwickshire. I have grown the department to one of the largest in the UK, with currently over 520 stduents who have selected to study Geography at GCSE. I am a keen physical geographer even though my degree was focussed on human geography and development. Having previously taught across all the main exam board specifications (OCR, Edexcel & AQA), Geography is in a fluid and changing stage. Currently I have chosen to deliver the new Edexcel and OCR specifications to GCSE and A-Level respectively.
I am well aware of the challenges changes to the KS4 and KS5 Geography courses, and therefore a lot of my tutoring would be focussed on the complex language of the course, the numerical/graphical skills element of Geography and of course exam technique.
Tutoring at 1-2-1 is a very effective approach to learning as long as there is structure involved. I do like 2 hour sessions as they tend to be very productive and can achieve a finer balance between exam technique and content review. However change my appraoch to all learners needs.
I am more expensive than other tutors on the market, but you can be secure in that my knowledge of pedagogy is excellent, with proven results.
