Online Maths and English Lessons

I am a recently qualified Geography teacher, teaching the International Baccalaureate and Bilingual Dutch education in the Netherlands. I got my PGCE in Secondary Geography with Qualified Teacher Status in England, teaching GCSE and A level. I am British but have lived in the Netherlands for 8 years - it's where I went to high school and university. During my degree, I did my exchange in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and learned a lot about the native North Americans who live there. Due to living abroad, I am only available for online tutoring.

Tutoring Experience

I am a recently qualified geography teacher, with experience teaching KS3, GCSE and A level. I have over 300 hours of experience as a private tutor. I have worked directly with the National Curriculum, the OCR B and Eduqas B GCSE Geography specifications, and the OCR A Level Geography specification. I have taught approximately 450 students in the last 2 years across three schools and private tutoring. I have experience teaching a wide range of pupils and abilities, including students with special educational needs and English as a foreign language learners. I have been tutoring since I was 15; first in science subjects to younger pupils at my school, later as an English tutor to English learners while I was at university, then as a statistics tutor to university students, and nowadays I'm an online maths, geography, English and biology tutor. I have most classroom experience within Geography (OCR B and WJEC/Eduqas GCSE specifications, OCR A Level specification, and IB HL) but I have also taught Citizenship, English and Dutch in a school setting.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching style is interactive, and involves a lot of practice questions to apply learning to a new or unfamiliar situation. During my teacher training, I developed my use of 'gamification' of learning, which means to say I developed classroom games, simulations and puzzles to engage learners and make lessons memorable. The benefit of private tutoring is that I can focus directly on the tutee and tailor my lessons to their learning style and areas for development.
