Personal Description:

I live just outside Ashford, Kent, with my wife and my interests outside of teaching include playing regular club hockey and cricket during the year. I like to play a number of other sports, including golf, football, tennis and squash. I am very interested in foreign travel, having visited South Africa, Kenya, Zanzibar, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Australia among numerous European destinations as well. Military history, community service through church and creative writing are other particular interests of mine.

Tutoring Experience:

I qualified as a secondary school teacher from Reading University back in July 2005, specialising in German and French. I have taught German across Key Stages 3-5, French in Key Stages 3 and 4 plus English, History and PE in Key Stage 3 in a few different secondary schools in Kent and Surrey over the last 7 years. I completed a temporary two-term teaching contract with a secondary school in Horley, Surrey, in July 2012. I am currently teaching MFL and also a Year 6 class at Meadows special needs school in Southborough, Kent, which I find rewarding.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to practise different subject skills during tutoring sessions, such as speaking, reading, writing and memory activities. I am adaptable and flexible to each student's needs and I try to make the atmosphere as friendly and relaxed as possible. I expect focus and hard work from all students that I would tutor. I hope this leads to enjoyment and success in the final outcome. One of my recent tutees from last year achieved a B grade in IGCSE German having started off at E grade standard during Year 10.
