Personal Description:

I am an outstanding teacher of English and Media Studies. At present, I am Director of English in a large 11-16 comprehensive school in Kirklees, although I live in Leeds. It goes without saying that, as an English specialist, I am an avid reader.

I also am passionate about music, having spent much of my youth and early adulthood DJing in clubs and on the radio, although professional and family life does not allow me to keep anything more than a passing interest these days. I continue to play football twice a week (as I have done since I was sixteen) in a vain attempt to keep up the pretence of fitness and youth, however the recovery time is increasing, at about the same rate as my pace is decreasing.

Tutoring Experience:

This academic year I was rated "Beyond Outstanding" by Ofsted, for what that's worth. I have been a qualified Teacher of English since 2002. I currently teach Year 7 to Year 11 and have three GCSE groups at all ability ranges. My top set Year 11 are on track to achieve amazing results with all but one achieving at least a B and 16 meeting their A/A* target in the Unit 1 exam. I have previously taught both English Language and English Literature at A Level and have kept up to date on recent developments in this area. As an examiner for all three major exam boards: AQA, OCR and Edexcel/Pearson at GCSE, and a former marker of KS3 SATs I have an invaluable insight into what exactly exam boards are looking for and will give you the key to unlock your full potential.

Tutoring Approach:

I set aspirational targets and regularly push students to exceed their government targets. The sessions I prepare and the resources I use will be tailored to individuals' needs in order to help you maximise potential. I can give you the tools to succeed, the fact that you're even considering hiring a tutor already shows me that you have what it takes - with my help I can make it a reality (too cheesy? I thought so too - doesn't stop it being true though).
