Personal Description:

I have been a teacher for thirty five years and enjoy supporting people in removing the barriers to their achievements.

When I am not teaching, I am a Lay Assessor and Representative in the Health Education South West Postgraduate Medical School, taking part in Quality Assurance panels for educational programmes across the range of specialities such as Neurology and Psychiatry, and participating in specialist trainee recruitment and annual reviews of performance and progression for specialist trainees. I also provide support and coaching for specialist exams.

Tutoring Experience:

I am passionate about helping people to reach their full potential and fully believe that developing high level language skills can support them in achieving this. I have been a qualified teacher for 30 years and spent much of my career in senior management in schools, as a head teacher, and in Quality Assurance in Local Education Authorities. For five years I lectured in Education and taught EAP at Plymouth University; I now support individuals with their academic writing skills, in addition to which I teach A level Psychology and prepare students for GCSE Science and English. In addition to my degree level qualifications, I also have a Diploma in General Science (equivalent to A Level) and a Diploma in Psychology.

I currently have a range of students of combined science, English and psychology, working across GCSE, A level and Degree/Postgraduate programmes, together with regular IELTs and FCE students. The latter come for intensive preparation of up to two weeks on a residential basis.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a collegiate approach to teaching which my former students have reported as being supportive and helpful, since they find me approachable. There are testimonials from some of them on my **Contact Detail Removed** profile. I like to encourage students to reflect on their own performance at regular intervals and involve themselves fully in setting their own goals for improvement.

I use a range of resources, tailoring the learning to meet with the learning preferences of each student accordingly. These include interactive online tools and practical tasks, as well as past paper questions and regular feedback.
