Personal Description:

I am a highly experienced, innovative teacher with 20 years experience in teaching Sociology, Psychology and Health and Social Care. After being a Department Head for 10 years, I went back into main classroom teaching after my son was born. I have since diversified and now mentor and coach young people as well as teach sociology.

Tutoring Experience:

Year on year, Success rate have been consistently high at 100%; with all students securing their first university choice.

I have taught Sociology and Health and Social Care since 1993 and introduced GNVQ BTEC programmes in Health and Social Care in different sixth form colleges. I have taught Sociology at GCSE level and A Level, on both the AQA and OCR Boards. I have taught OCR Psychology at A Level, and Health and Social Care at A Level (AQA Board) and BTEC Levels 2 and 3.
At present I teach and examine sociology at A Level (AQA).
I Life Coach young people and implement relevant strategies to help overcome stress and anxiety which I incorporate during my teaching where I feel it is needed and the students feel they need it!

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is flexible; all learners have different needs and learn in different ways. I contact my tutee beforehand, to find out as much as I can about the ways they like to learn, this enables me to plan and prepare sessions so the tutee gets the most out of the time we have together. Homework is set and thorough assessment and feedback form an integral part of the tutoring sessions.

As a highly skilled and experienced teacher in Sociology and Health and Social Care, I am able to help the tutee master those tricky areas that may take more time to get to grips with. These areas are usually on specific topic areas or skills that relate to how to answer exam questions. These skills are vital for exam success. Also a qualified and experienced life coach, I often combine coaching and NLP strategies within the context of academic support; to ensure that motivation never wavers and exam stress, panic and anxiety is dramatically reduced.
