I am a friendly male English teacher currently living in Radcliffe but working in Middleton in a very successful secondary school. I have been a qualified teacher for four years; marking for AQA for three years. I have a good success rate with both boys and girls and am able to push those that struggle to help them secure a higher grade.
I trained in two schools; one school had a high percentage of EAL pupils (English as an Additional Language). Whilst there, I used innovative methods to gain the progress my pupils needed. I then moved to Manchester and taught in Blackley for a year. I enjoyed my time at this school but longed for the catholic ethos that I had in my own school experience so left to join a Roman Catholic school in Middleton. I have been at the school for a year an a half and have secured good progress from both of my KS4 classes; their targets range from 4 - 8.
My approach to tutoring is one of friendly explaining of what AQA are looking for and how to secure the highest marks possible.
The focus of most sessions will be exam based timed writing - I will then mark any work with the tutee in order to explain where the progress can be made. The tutee will then refine their response in order to achieve the higher mark.
