Personal Description:

I have over 25 years' experience of teaching English at Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School, awarded an outstanding Ofsted inspection in 2016. For many years I have achieved excellent exam results in teaching GSCE English Language and Literature; recently I have taught the new GCSE and it has been an insight working as an AQA examiner for this specification. Also, I have considerable experience of teaching Key Stage 3, A Level Language and Literature and have prepared students for Grammar School entrance examinations (verbal Reasoning, English and Mathematics). Furthermore, I have experience of teaching students with special needs as well as gifted and talented students.
Having achieved a 2:1 degree in English and a PGCE in teaching English from 11 - 18, I have worked with young people in a caring and teaching capacity for many years and I would say that challenge, creativity and the individual's learning needs are at the heart of my practice. I live in the Pendle area with my family and enjoy running, gardening, Literature and the Arts.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught English at secondary level across the age range (11-18) for many years, developing a wealth of resources and subject knowledge. My knowledge of GCSE English Language and Literature is considerable, including the new GCSE, and I also work as an examiner for this specification. Similarly, I have a vast experience of teaching A Level English Literature and Language. Furthermore, I have enjoyed developing techniques and skills to ensure achievement at Key Stage 3. Also, I have tutored primary school students in preparation for SATs and entrance examinations (Verbal Reasoning, English and Maths).

Tutoring Approach:

As every student is different it is vital that you adapt your approach and materials to maximise learning. I tend to be a creative thinker and use this skill to encourage engagement and progress; also participation and a variety of activities is at the centre of my approach. Furthermore, I think it is so important that the learning experience is fun, engaging and challenging coupled with a positive, supportive relationship between teacher and student.
