I am a highly experienced teacher with 25 years experience in secondary education. I am currently a Head of Geography as well as an examiner for Edexcel, AQA and CIE at GCSE, O' Level and A Level Geography. I have also marked exams in Pakistan Studies and Humanities. I have marked the new specifications for AQA and Edexcel both at GCSE and A level. For Edexcel I am a team leader for examiners on the A level paper. I also do a huge amount of work on the new NEA coursework at A level.
I have many years experience of tutoring students in exam busting sessions across the state and private sector with an excellent degree of success. I have covered exam boards such as AQA, Edexcel, OCR, CIE and Eduqas. I can offer 1:1 tutoring or small group sessions. Sessions can range from teaching topics to detailed exam practise. I am also able to give feedback or for you to ask me questions by e-mail.
25 years of teaching Geography at KS3, KS4 and KS5.
I have been a head of department for 12 years and Head of faculty for 5 years.
I have been an examiner since 2002 marking GCSE, A/S and A2 exams.
I do revision courses for Justin Craig revision and am a consultant for them on Geography.
My approach to tutoring is using a friendly and enthusiastic manner to engage pupil interest. I like to put a high level of input into my sessions getting across relevant information. I feel it is important to engage pupils in discussions, questioning and explanations. I use up-to-date case studies and lots of exam question practice. I use my years as an experienced examiner to provide detailed feedback that will ensure you to get the grade you need. I am also able to give feedback or for you to ask me questions by e-mail.
