Personal Description:

I love teaching and learning and have taught in many different environments and countries across the world. I have worked at all levels from primary through to University level and I currently train teachers to improve their teaching skills.

I have privately tutored clients of all ages more specifically to help get through examinations such as Cambridge, Common Entrance, 11 plus, GSCE, IGSCE, A level and Cambridge IELTS.

I do work with primary age students with a focus on improving and developing literacy skills, particularly for students about to take 7+ and the 11 + and those with learning difficulties.

I understand the anxieties and barriers that learners can feel and work with students to understand those barriers and help build confidence again to enjoy the process of learning.

Tutoring Experience:

I have worked in London schools for many years, as a Head of English and as an Advanced Skills Teacher.I have developed teaching and learning programmes, training teachers, and creating curriculum materials, for English language and literature teaching, literacy and English as an Additional Language, from primary through to university both in the UK and overseas.

I am an examiner for GCSE and A level and I have taught for common entrance and eleven plus as a private tutor.

In 2004 I was appointed London Commissioner for literacy under Sir Tim Brighouse and in 2005 I was appointed teacher of the year in London. In 2006 I was runner-up for the Microsoft award for most innovative teacher and use of technology. I received an award from The Worshipful Company of Information Technologists as ICT teacher of the yeaar in 2007.

I have completed several successful Education Projects overseas to train teachers and develop new and exciting teaching and learning methods and keen to use my skills to work with students who want to develop their skills in English, English language, reading, writing, literature and exam techniques.

Tutoring Approach:

Having had a background in Psychology I use a lot of current research as to how best the brain works and therefore how the student learns most effectively.
I use multi-media where appropriate, humour, creativity, games, problem solving and a wide variety of learning strategies to tailor each students learning needs: we are all different learners. I use feed-back to help pace each session and help build and develop confidence and critical thinking skills. Above all I try and provide the right balance to achieve the agreed objectives whilst supporting the fun of learning.
