I am a highly experienced A level Sociology teacher at a leading Sixth form college in Taunton, Somerset which currently caters for almost 250 A level Sociology students. I am well known for my excellent rapport with all students and my very effective enthusiastic teaching style. I am highly driven by targets which has accounted for my consistently excellent result over the past 15 years at both AS and A level. Above all, I have a very approachable personality which I believe is essential alongside my exceptional subject knowledge and excellent teaching skills.
My experience stretches across three examination boards which includes 15 years teaching accross the OCR, AQA and WJEC specifications. In addition, I also have vast experience as an A level Sociology examiner. Until the past academic year, I examined a considerable amount of papers for all 3 examination boards over a 12 year period. This has been crucial to my success as an A level teacher as I am consistently aware of the importance of changing assessment criteria.
My approach to private tutoring is to be open minded and flexible based on individual needs, styles and preferences. I have a vast amount of experience of doing individual and group workshops which cater for varying abilities. Some students simply need to be stretched at the top end to achieve their highly set goals whilst other students may wish to build their confidence and performance by re-visiting taught material and adopting new strategies to their learning.
