Personal Description:

I am a senior examiner in history (GCSE and A'level) and Associate Lecturer in Law with the Open University. Previously I worked as a history teаcher in the Independent sectоr. I аm currently tutоring A'level, IGCSE, GCSE history, A'level, GCSE and IGCSE English,GCSE Classical Civilisations, A'level and IGCSE Business studies, AS and A'level Government and Politics and undergraduate law. I wаsn`t аlwаys а teаcher аnd cаme tо it lаter in life ten years ago аfter а very successful cаreer аs а strаtegic prоject mаnаger with top FMCG companies. One of my areas of interest is to support pupils at both ends of the spectrum, those who have learning challenges such as dyslexia and dyspraxia and those who are identified as 'able and gifted'. I also obtain excellent results from pupils who are considered 'average' which quite frankly, is not a label I would use with any student! All students have talent and it is my job to unlock their potential. As I have extensive academic and professional qualifications, I am able to offer a wide range of expertise and subject support. When not tutoring, I spend time with my family (husband and two children), walking our collie/springer, gardening and lots of baking and eating gluten free cakes!

Tutoring Experience:

**Taking bookings for September** I currently teach students online from all over the world and the UK and so have extensive experience of different approaches and exam boards. My tutees consistently achieve transformative results (please see reviews below). 2017 linear A'level results, (majority history with one English Lit resit) 100% A*-C, 81% A*- B (of that 71% A*- A). The 'C' grades were an improvement from Es and Us at AS. 100% have got into first choice unis. This repeats and builds on the successes in previous years. 2017 English GCSE results (all English students had dyslexia… ) IGCSE English Lang 95% A*-A English Lit 80% A*-A) New grade GCSE Lang and Lit 50% 9-6 ( this reflects the fact that the new graded GCSEs especially Lit are more challenging to dyslexic students) however 100% passed. IGCSE history 100% A*-A. When not tutoring, I lecture part-time for the OU in law and support a tutor group of 20 students. I taught history in a private senior school for three and a half years in Oxfordshire before moving to the Staffordshire/Shropshire borders six years ago. I worked as a supply teacher and then started tutoring full time five years ago. I tutor A'level, IGCSE and GCSE; history, English Literature, English Language, business studies, gov and politics, Classical Civilisation. I also teach law up to undergraduate level. I am a current and experienced A'level examiner and senior GCSE exаminer in histоry for OCR. I am also regularly reappointed to the history 'remark' panel for OCR for A'Levels and GCSEs for each sitting.

Essay writing, planning, source analysis and evaluation are my areas of expertise in history and therefore I can provide the tools required to excel at Edexcel, AQA and OCR papers. I am currently teaching Edexcel, OCR and AQA at GCSE, IGCSE, and linear A'level.

For English, I can help with essay writing, comprehension, poetry and prose appreciation covering classics, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Webster, 19th and 20th century literature and contemporary poetry. I am currently teaching AQA, Edexcel and ICE at GCSE/IGCSE and have taught AQA, CIE, OCR and WJEC spec at A'level.

For Law, I am teaching AQA for A'level and GCSE and I mainly support undergraduates with their research and essay writing skills: my preferred areas of teaching are: Family, Criminal, Contract, EU, Tort, constitutional and administrative and jurisprudence.

I hаve а Masters degree in lаw, postgraduate qualification in accountancy аnd twо bаchelоr degrees in lаw аnd histоry.

Tutoring Approach:

Most of my tutoring is now online, which has several advantages, the most important being the student's time is not wasted in travelling to and from places, and distance is not a problem! It also means I can be far more flexible in terms of hours offered for tuition as I don't have to fit travel time around my tutoring committments. However, for those that prefer face to face, I do offer that at my home, where I have all the materials and space to tutor effectively. I have a 'can do' attitude to teaching, and like to focus on building confidence in pupils in their ability, as from my experience as a teacher, if a student is confident, suddenly the things they found difficult become surmountable. I find working towards solving a problem or answering a question focuses the session and means we reach a conclusion at the end of our time together. I plan activities carefully so that at the end the tutee can leave with a feeling of achievement. I set tasks between sessions as all pupils need to learn how to work on their own and then we mark the work set together so that any mistakes can be immediately addressed and also I can reward good effort at the same time. For students who have learning challenges, I use a variety of proven methods which allow them to compete on a level playing field with other students not facing the same challenges. I also have experience of accessing help and assessment for any tutees who may be struggling, where the underlying reason may not have been identified through normal channels. Tutoring should be a postive learning experience and I hope that pupils can use it as a foundation not just in the subject they are being tutored for, but can apply some of the techniques to all their learning.
