I am a fully qualified and highly experienced English teacher with experience of leading a very successful English department and tutoring to students from Years 7-11. I am also a GCSE examiner so have a comprehensive understanding of the new GCSEs and the skills that young people need to develop in order to succeed in them.
I taught 11-18 English for over 20 years and my students always achieved excellent results. I was head of English for 6 years and am very proud that students in my department made some of the best progress in Leeds. .
I have a good understanding of the demands of the school curriculum and, particularly if you're working at GCSE level, I will ensure that you are developing the skills you need in order to achieve the levels you're aiming for.
I'm happy to negotiate with you and find ways of working that interest and engage you most.
