Personal Description:

I am a qualified teacher of secondary History who has over 6 years experience teaching in a variety of schools in both England and Malaysia.
My wife and I have recently returned from an exciting and challenging two year teaching contract in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and we are now hoping to settle down in the Bournemouth area.
I have an infectious enthusism for history and I have always loved reading and teaching people about the subject. I also continue to maintain a very keen interest in geography and government and politics as well.
Outside of the teaching profession, I am a keen sportsmen who plays football and tennis. I also enjoy hiking with my wife, reading and amateur photography too.

Tutoring Experience:

2014-2016 - Teacher of History at Sri KDU International School (Private, Co-ed), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
During this two year contract I was responsible for teaching history to a range of students from Key Stage 3 up to Key Stage 5. I had two IGCSE CIE History classes and an IB History class. I was very pleased that my IGCSE History class achieved 84% A*-C.

2011-2014 - Teacher of History and Politics at the Blue School (State, Co-ed), Wells, Somerset.
During the three years I spent at the Blue School I was responsible for teaching students from Key Stage 3-5 in both History and Politics. During this time I gained experience of teaching Edexcel GCSE History, AQA A-Level History and OCR A-Level Government and Politics. I am particularly proud of my GCSE Class which achived over 85% A*-C.

Tutoring Approach:

First and foremost I believe that education, of any sort, should always be relevant, engaging and fun for the students in question.
Regardless of key stage or ability tutoring should always be tailored to the specific needs and aspirations of the tutee and whilst nurturing and celebrating existing skills, provide enough challenge and extension opportunities to allow tutees to make real progress.
Although use of accredited exam board and curriculum materials would form the backbone of my tutoring, I would also like to make the most of modern technology to enrich the experience.
