Information About Paul - Ware tutor - (4 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
I have been teaching for 11 years. I currently fulfill a pastoral management position, but I have also held a Head of Department role in Geography and I am currently the Head of Geology. I teach both subjects at GCSE and A-Level and have privately mentored students for seven years. I am a current senior examiner for AQA Geography and will be marking the new spec syllabus from 2018. I have previously acted as an A-level marker for AS Geography and OCR A2 Geology.
Previous to teaching I spent 6 years in a Geology related industry both for the military and for some of the countries leading engineering and construction companies. I studied for my first Research Masters at UCL-Birkbeck Earth science institute, where I gained a Distinction in Geology and Geophysics, at an institute ranked within the top 5 Earth Science departments in the country. My work has also been published in the International Journal - Proceedings of the Geological Assocation. Each year I run field trips to Iceland, Sicily, Cornwall and the Lake District to give students a comprehensive experience for the study of Geography/Geology.
I worked on the development of the Geography GCSE and A level Specs for 2018, and will also continue to mark AQA Geography into the new syllabus.
I have taught for 11 years in a mixed comprehensive and a high flying all boys school in Hertfordshire which was ranked in the top 100 states school. I am QTS, qualified to Master level and currently hold a middle management position. For the past 5 years I have held positive residual scores for both my A-Level and GCSE classes, with my current results including 65% A* to A, 90% A-C for GCSE and 62% A-A* at A2.
A mixture of exam skills, and case studies linked to the development of more detailed subject knowledge. I have a wide range of experience to drawn from, and first class resources that I am able to share. I have also been a fellow of the Geological Society for 13 years.
