I am a friendly and approachable teacher who will be committed to helping you with your studies.
I have 12 years teaching experience in state education - comprehensive and grammar. Consequently I have experience of teaching students across the ability range and will tailor my sessions to suit you and your target grade. I am currently Subject Leader for History at Strode College (a grade 1 outstanding college in Street, Somerset). Prior to this I was Subject Leader of Politics and Head of Year 8 at a high performing grammar school in Gloucestershire and a teacher of History at Cleeve School - a very successful comprehensive near Cheltenham. I have experience of teaching History for 3 different exam boards across the 11-18 age range and have always achieved outstanding results at both GCSE and A level, adding value across the ability range. I have taught a wide range of topics and can assist with examination and/or coursework units. I am also currently an examiner for History A level with the OCR examination board making me well placed to assist you with improving your grades.
I am flexible with my approach according to what works with each tutee. Usually I will complete a session on one topic then work through past exam questions to build confidence and get used to the style of question and how to respond. I am particularly good at improving tutees exam technique, which is so key to doing well at GCSE and A level, especially on source based papers. I will provide high quality resources for further reading and be thoroughly prepared, reliable and approachable.
