Map for Peter (Mr)

Personal Description:

I am semi-retired, having spent my working life in public service, initially as a teacher/lecturer and then in the last 15 years with the NHS, working in IT. I have also spent a considerable number of years in the Reserve Forces and more recently in the Army Cadet Force.

Training and education has counted for a significant portion of my working life; I have enjoyed it and have been assured on numerous occasions by former students that I had a positive impact on their lives.

Tutoring Experience:

I was employed in a formal education setting for 22 years, teaching various History syllabi, across a variety of historical periods from Roman History right up to the modern day. In my time I taught O Level, Schools Council, 16+, GCSE, A Level and some degree work.

On moving to the NHS, I continued my training responsibilities by delivering data security instruction to NHS staff.

I extended my educational activities in my spare time by delivering training to soldiers and young officers in the Territorial Army and still provide training to Army Cadets in the 12-18 age group.

Tutoring Approach:

Every learner is different. Everyone has a different learning pace and the approach that works for one often bombs for another. The key is to find what motivates the individual, the formula of words and ideas that encourages the penny to drop. It can be a very demoralising process for an individual who wants to learn but who, for whatever reason, struggles to understand. It is vital to nurse then through this period, to get to the breakthrough point, whereafter they can approach learning with confidence, without fear. Some of us achieve this on our own - given time; others just need a little extra help and support.
