Personal Description:

I am an experienced English and Drama teacher, as well as being an examiner of AQA English GCSE. I am also part of a team of dedicated Drama teachers who have recently set up a Drama in Education Company. We operate under the name of **Removed By **Web Address Removed** and offer educational workshops to schools, libraries and education centres. I live with my husband, who is a musician and music teacher and two children aged 16 and 9. We live in Seaham in County Durham so I am fairly centrally located for tuition across much of the North East of England.

Tutoring Experience:

I've been teaching English and Drama in secondary schools for 24 years. I have prepared students for written and practical examinations for English and Drama at GCSE and BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Performing Arts (Acting). I'm also an examiner in English and Drama at GCSE level so I'm very familiar with what examiners expect to see from students. I am currently an 'A' graded examiner for AQA English GCSE paper 1. I am also enjoying tutoring adults with English as a Second Language and am gaining valuable experience of teaching the Cambridge English: First (FCE) qualification.

Tutoring Approach:

I am an excellent communicator, in terms of both public speaking and one to one situations. I have been part of mentoring programmes and enjoy helping students on a one to one basis. I enjoy inspiring confidence in my students and also make myself available if students need advice. Experience has taught me how to monitor a student's learning development and personalise learning in order to take actions quickly to address any potential problems or issues. My classroom management skills have been regularly praised during lesson observations. Work scrutinies are positive, highlighting my organisational and administration achievements as well as effective relationships with students.
