Personal Description:

I'm a teacher who has taught in mainstream schools for over 25 years. In the last few years I have taught pupils who have been excluded from schools for Suffolk County Council. I'm an English Literature specialist but I have also taught Maths, Science, Italian and Drama GCSEs with considerable success. I'd like to believe that the description of me in references as 'enthusiastic' and 'an inspirational teacher' is true.
If I weren't looking after my partner who is ill I'd be teaching full time in a school or college.

Tutoring Experience:

My first four years of teaching experience was as a university lecturer. I then taught in senior schools for over 25 years. After teaching English In Merchiston Castle School and Benenden School, I became the Head of English at Moira House School, The Sir James Henderson British School of Milan and finally, at Framlingham College. Recently I have been teaching excluded pupils for Suffolk County Council, preparing them for GCSEs in English & English Literature, Maths and Science. I have also given private tutoring in GCSE Maths and A Level English, as well as Italian, English Literature and Philosophy for adults.
I suppose my speciality is AS and A2 English Literature with a particular interest in Poetry and Shakespeare, where I try to develop the student's critical awareness and their ability to carry out close textual analysis while learning to explore and enjoy complex ideas.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is relaxed and informal. I try to make my lessons interesting and entertaining whenever possible. Humour is also important. I believe that all learning can be fun, rather than a tedious chore. I try hard to ensure that nothing during a lesson is boring to any pupil. Even the most 'switched off' pupil can I believe learn to enjoy learning and hopefully be inspired to achieve the highest possible grades. Ultimately, it is possible to convert mediocre performances into outstanding ones, and it is learning how to develop the self-confidence and know-how to get those top grades that is my goal.
