I grew up close to London and having lived and worked abroad, I moved home to teach. I enjoy a range of sports in my spare time

Tutoring Experience

I have taught in secondary schools in London, and have been in an Oxfordshire secondary school for the past few years as Head of Department.

I have taught a range of both Psychology and Sociology boards to GCSE and A level. For the last few years I have also worked as an examiner for the AQA exam board

In the 2014 exam series 100% of students I tutored achieved A*/A & B grades. I am extremely pleased to have had students achieving such success in their exams over the last 9 years, since I started private tutoring

I enjoy the 1:1 experience of tutoring as it is incredibly rewarding seeing students progress from finding subject matter overwhelming and confusing to fully grasping concepts and being able to apply these to a range of different situations. I strive to utilise a range of teaching methods and resources which I adapt for specific individuals' needs

Tutoring Approach

I believe that success in tutoring lies in ascertaining the specific needs of the individual requiring 1:1 support, and tailoring the sessions to these needs. I work to understand the knowledge and understanding of each student in order to both fill in the gaps and focus attention on exactly what information is required for the exam. I am passionate about the subjects that I teach (Sociology and Psychology), and believe that they both have the potential to develop an inquisitive and questioning mind

I believe that my patient and focused approach allows students to gain confidence and achieve the high grades they are working towards

I can help with core topics and exam preparation - I believe anyone can understand a topic so long as it is explained clearly enough
