Hi - I am now taking bookings for September onwards - please get in touch if you would like to know more.
I am happy to discuss your requirements and arrange a tutoring programme that meets your needs. I live on the border of Hampshire and West Sussex. I am able to travel to your home, if you prefer this. I am friendly and easy to get along with and am a patient teacher.
I am an experienced Senior Teacher, with over twenty five years experience of teaching and examining in the further education and sixth form sector. Most recently, I trained new and in-service teachers at the University of Southampton; prior to that I enjoyed working as a Curriculum Team Leader at a Grade 1 Hampshire sixth form college, teaching History and Critical Thinking. I have up to date knowledge and experience of tutoring for current syllabuses for History and the Extended Project (EPQ ). I have examined for OCR, Edexcel and the International Baccalaureate. . At GCSE and IGCSE level, I offer tutoring for History and Study Skills.
I am accustomed to working with students with differing needs and can for example offer expertise in helping students who have dyslexia and who are gifted and talented. I have specific experience in helping students prepare for University aptitude tests (critical thinking) and for entry to University; I can offer help with University choices, visits to University open days and with the writing of Personal Statements. .
I would begin by assessing your needs and then plan a programme that suits your learning preferences. I will offer a teaching style that works for you, geared to improving your confidence and helping you improve your course work and to prepare for your exams. I can offer a varied teaching approach that will complement the materials that are already being used. I will help with coverage of the syllabus, techniques for memory recall and strategies to improve writing for exam questions.
