Personal Description:

I am now in my thirty sixth year of teaching English in High Schools and I love my job. I'm lucky to be teaching a subject I feel passionately about and have the satisfaction of seeing students who struggle gain the skills and confidence to exceed their target grades and get on with what they want to do in life.

I have one teenage daughter, so understand the issues and pressures of preparing for exams and doing homework from the perspective of a teacher and a mother. In my spare time I run a Book Club and enjoy theatre and travelling.

Tutoring Experience:

Thirty five years teaching KS3, GCSE and A Level in the state and private sector with a strong track record of exam success.I currently teach in a High School rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted. I have a good knowledge of the new syllabuses at GCSE and A Level.

I am a GCSE English Literature Examiner for AQA. My extensive and current experience means I have knowledge of skills across different examining boards.

Experience of private tuition at KS3, GCSE and A Level

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst I have extensive experience of how the system works the reason I have kept teaching is because it all starts with the student and their responses to what they have to do and every student is different. It's important to establish trust so the first phase of tuition is praising the student for what they can do and identifying areas where they are struggling. Tuition is then targeted at getting the students to gain competence, and feel confidence, in these areas and the final phase is consolidating their knowledge and skills for the examination. As an examiner I am aware of the boxes that need to be ticked for specific grades but more importantly for me individual tuition gives me the chance to focus on how each individual learns the skills.
