Personal Description:

I am a Chartered Geographer and Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, active member of the Geographical Association, Council Member of the National Trust, and Mountain Leader. I still enjoy learning and am currently completing both online MOOCs in a variety of disciplines and practical qualifications in climbing and Mountain biking to develop my 'outdoor' skills.

I still think it's cool to know stuff, understand the world, and want to learn more.

Tutoring Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2002, and have 14 years teaching experience. I've taught a variety of subjects - principally Geography though also Economics (A-Level), Science (to GCSE) and Maths (to Key Stage 3 pupils for the past 5 years - both across the ability range and higher ability sets). I've also worked in a variety of state schools, including a special school.

My status of Chartered Geographer (Teacher) recognises my ongoing commitment to personal (professional) development as does my registration in March 2016 as a Consultant to the Geographical Association.

Tutoring Approach:

My complementary degrees, additional qualifications, and ongoing personal learning have equipped me with wide-ranging skills including the numerical, analytical and communication skills necessary to explain complex concepts in a way which is accessible and appealing to young learners.

My approach to teaching is to develop self-confidence, an inquiring approach and self-reliance, rather than spoon-feeding and rote learning. A learner isn't two-dimensional, and encouraging the whole person to develop and gain confidence has proven a successful approach that is reflected in the extremely positive working relationships I develop with learners.
