'Outstanding' Deputy Head of English (QTS) and GCSE AQA Examiner; BA/MA/PGCE Qualified.
A warm, friendly and experienced GCSE Examiner and Teacher of English, living in Islington, with an additional expertise in Drama and Classical Literature. Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), graded Outstanding.
Having graduated with a BA (Hons) in Classical Literature from The University of Manchester, I subsequently trained at Masters level at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, a worldwide leading drama school, through which I developed an appreciation for creativity in learning.
From there I gained a place on the competitive **Contact Detail Removed** Leadership Development Programme, and now teach English and Drama in an inner-London secondary school. As an examiner for AQA, I have been specifically trained according to the new GCSE syllabus (from 2016) and have an excellent working knowledge of the skills needed for pupils to achieve success.
My philosophy for learning is simple: that anybody, no matter their background, should have the opportunity to succeed. I work using open, engaging activities and rigorous examination preparation, to both bring the enjoyment out of a subject, and to readily prepare for those vital examinations.
