Personal Description:

I am a fully qualified teacher with more than 12 years experience in the Secondary school sector. I entered teaching after a career in the communications sector as a Design Manager. My students ranged in age from 11 to 18. In addition I am experienced in helping students through their UCAS applications. I moved to Oxfordshire in 2012 I am currently working at a School working with students aged 11 to 18 teaching Physics I am a tutor to a lively group of students who are applying to University this year. I enjoy teaching Physics and Computer Science and can teach,Electronics or Mechanics up to A level.

Tutoring Experience:

I worked in the electronics/communications sector until 2002 as a designer then manager. I left to train as a teacher. I qualified as a teacher of ICT in 2003 but always worked across subjects teaching both ICT and Physics and some Maths in a challenging school in the North West of England for 9 years. For family reasons we have relocated to Oxfordshire in 2012. After 15 months in a private college in Oxford teaching international students who wish to continue onto a British University after their studies at A level. I decided to return to the state sector in an outstanding school in Berkshire teaching Science, Maths and A level Physics. This year was my second as a tutor but I have found it immensely enjoyable working one to one and with small groups that enable me to get to know the tutees strengths and working on their areas of improvement . I am looking to expand my tutoring into the home education area.

Tutoring Approach:

Firstly I will discuss the need for tutoring with the student and the fee payer to find out their expectations and aims.
Secondly I will assess the students knowledge of the subject; what they feel about the subject; what they find difficult/easy and what interests them about the subject and if they have a long term objective.

Thirdly we will agree a teaching strategy and timetable for the forthcoming weeks/months with the knowledge that if the student is attending school then the timetable may need to be altered to align or reinforce the work covered there.
I try to make the learning fun and attempt to relate the learning to the students own interests wherever possible and make sure that the students understand the topics before moving on. In return I expect the student to assume some responsibility for their studies and complete any assignments and reading tasks asked of them.
