I live in Cheshire with my 14 year old son. I enjoy camping, the outdoors & the countryside in general. We like to travel around the UK, especially Scotland & Southern Ireland. I have enjoyed being successful professionally & in my academic career & I am always looking for new opportunities to make the best use of the skills I've developed over the years. I am an avid collector of rare coins and specialise in Canadian and Chinese varities. I enjoy the gym and workout quite often.
I have been teaching in Schools, Colleges and Universities since 1995 and currently work in the Stockport area where I teach Criminology, Sociology and Health and Social Care. I have also been teaching online for well over a decade and my results and student satisfaction has been excellent.
I treat every student as an individual & seek to respond to their individual learning needs. I offer a very reliable, high standard of service & see us as working together to achieve a common objective, that of success in the summative examinations. Being an examiner for sociology is also a real advantage for my tutees too. More recently, I have been working with Nelson Thornes and a leading Examination Board to provide 200 online Sociology learning resources for publication in support of their A2 core text. I record podcasts to help my politics and sociology students and I make these available either on u-tube or my own website. I offer online tuition and this has proved popular and very successful at heavily discounted rates for block bookings. Using my own online interactive quizzes, past papers, mark schemes and other electronic resources has really helped to make the tutorial experience a varied and stimulating one. Whilst many tutors offer a valuable critique of student writing, I pride myself on actually doing the writing myself too. This way when a student has completed a paragraph for me online I can send them my version for comparison. By doing this the learner can see their strengths and weaknesses and will have an exemplar for revision which they can copy and paste into a Word Doc. One of the most valuable services I provide in addition to the traditional tutorials is the very detailed feedback provided on student essays/short answers. By using Word Comment I can offer corrections, additions, examples, conceptual advice and essay technique tips with great clarity. By selecting me as tutor, your grades will significantly improve and you will be prepared for University in the best way possible.
