Personal Description:

I have worked, travelled and visited all the world's continents except for South America: as a result, other nationalities, their customs, history and cuisine are a constant delight and inspiration: as a philatelist, I am used to working with endless patience on small detail: over 40 years of directing drama brings all the rewards that come from heading up a team and delighting audiences. Conservation work, Scottish country dancing and running with the Hash House Harriers may not keep me slim but has kept me as healthy as a budgie on Trill: I also completed the London Marathon foor years back.

Tutoring Experience:

Main experience over 6 years teaching has been in the state school secondary system, teaching Drama to BTEC level, English and French to GCSE level: Some experience of teaching Business Studies to BTEC level. Pupils have ranged from high to limited ability many of whom chose to attend after school sessions for BTEC drama - a choice which saw every student in my first BTEC group achieveing a minimum of a Pass, with more able students achieving Merits and Distinctions: two years experience of home tuition.

Tutoring Approach:

First consideration is to ensure an exact understanding of the task that the tutee/student needs to complete. Once this is clear for both tutor and tuteee, I make frequent use of questions both to ensure that the student understands what is required and also to draw out his/her knowledge. Where the going gets tougher, this questioning may be in the form of giving a choice of possibilities, then asking the student to choose one and to give their reasons for their choice. I steer clear, as far as is possible, of providing the answer in the belief that students gain more from working things out themselves with guidance.
