Personal Description:

I retired as a teacher in August 2015 after 36 years teaching English in 6 different comprehensive schools in Caerphilly, Pontypridd ,Aberdare and Cardiff. I was a Head of English for 20 years For the last 17 years of my career I was assistant Head Teacher in Whitchurch in Cardiff. Throughout my career I have taught English across the ability range. I live in Cardiff am married with two grown up sons.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught English ,English Literature, History and Drama in my career from Years 6 (as part of an transition programme) to year 13. I have taught all the major examination boards and levels including SATS,GCSE AS A2 and the European International Baccalaureate. Throughout my teaching career I have produced materials such as examination guides and DVDS which have been sold nationally.

Tutoring Approach:

I really enjoy teaching.I try to communicate the interest I find in the subject. One of the many myths about English is that it is unlike other subjects and that there is no need to revise it. I try to show how preparation and understanding is key to examination success and the more you know the better answer you can give and if you send the correct signals to an examiners they have to reward you ! I have been an assistant examiner for all the major examination boards and a senior examiner at GCSE and I.B level.
