Personal Description:

I enjoy being a student myself and can therefore appreciate the challenges as well as the enjoyment that can be gained by my students when mastering a subject like English or History. I am nearing the completion of a Master's degree in Theology and have already started a PhD in the History of the First World War. My wealth of knowledge and depth of reading and study is therefore at the disposal of my students regardless of ability.

Tutoring Experience:

I trained to be a teacher with the University of East Anglia and have taught English and History continuously since September 1993. I have taught in a range of schools and colleges and have taught the full range of abilities. I have taught in grammar schools, comprehensives and a sixth form college. I have tutored as part of a London University's Easter A level revision programme and as an EFL tutor for a summer school organised by an international language school. Additionally, I have served as Head of English in my current school. In the summer of 2013, my GCSE English Language and my AS and A2 Level English Literature students scored a 100% pass rate. The results for my AS students in summer 2013 placed them within the top 25% in England. I am therefore a confident teacher who enjoys seeing his students make progress and enjoy studying.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is to understand and help the student as an individual learner with learning style preferences and particular challenges. This means listening carefully at the outset of the tutoring assignment to what the student needs. To form a clearer picture of how best to help the student, I may ask to see samples of school work and homework and may even ask the student to complete a short piece of work for me to assess. I like also to bring resources and advice guides for the student's use. The consequence of my initial assessment of the student is a personal action plan which is agreed with the student and which sets out goals for the student to achieve and the time frame in which those goals ought to be achieved. I like to structure tutorials around a three-part format: starter activities, the main activity and a check on what has been learned at the end of the tutorial. This provides variety to the learning process.
