I am an experienced teacher and Head of Department for History with a passion for helping students to fulfil their potential. I have a love and enthusiasm for both History and Government and Politics, which I have taught for a decade in a high performing school in Kent. Whilst I am completing a PhD research and teaching at UEA, I am keen to help motivate students in Norfolk towards outstanding results and a thorough enjoyment of the subjects I specialise in.
I am an experienced History teacher and have spent four years as a successful Head of History in a Kent Grammar School. In my teaching experience, I have only ever received Ofsted outstanding grading for my lessons and I have spent the last five years running additional support sessions to help students of varying ability to achieve the very best results. In charge of an already successful department, I have overseen a rapid rise in A* results at both GCSE and A Level in recent years, whilst also catering for those of lower academic ability to attain successful passing grades and to build students self esteem.
My tutoring methods are adaptable to the needs of the learner, whether it is to enable a student to form a successful essay technique or to help with revision strategies ahead of important exams. The sessions I give will be interesting, innovative as the situation demands it and directly relevant to the needs of the student. Most of all, I aim to build a love of the subject, but with a clear remit of achieving excellent results and high standards.
