English and History Tuition in Sleaford

I have worked as a Secondary History Teacher in a high performing boy's school. I have experience working in mixed sex education in the state sector and over five years of experience working internationally in education, including working in the Russian and Japanese school systems. I am Russel Group graduate.

Tutoring Experience

I am highly experienced in teaching the Edexcel, Cambridge IGCSE and AQA History syllabuses, and am confident in teaching these to an exceeding standard. I know what the examiners are looking for in an answer and how to guide my pupils in order to achieve excellent results.

I am also a qualified English as a Foreign Language teacher and have taught English abroad since 2012. I have worked in Japan, Russia and the U.K with children of all ages and adults in the classroom, a language school setting and as a private tutor.

I can provide exam preparation for the KET, PET, FCE, IELTS and Trinity Speaking exams.

Tutoring Approach

Enthusiasm and professionalism tailored to my students needs and working with their abilities, learning styles and personalities.

My excellent academic background in History, as well as a genuine passion for the subject outside of the classroom, means my subject knowledge is outstanding. I am highly experienced in the AQA and Edexcel GCSE syllabuses. Due to my in depth knowledge of what the examiner is looking for in an answer and how to achieve this, I can pinpoint how to get high marks, especially in regards to the longer 16 mark questions and source analysis questions.

In regards to English as an Secondary Language, my lessons tackle all four areas of language learning; speaking, listening, writing and reading. I have ample materials available to aid your language learning and my lessons take a communicative approach. Having taught various exam preparation in the past, I am qualified to teach this as well as grammar and formal/academic writing.
