Information About Susannah - Kingston upon Thames tutor - (6 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Susannah:
I am qualified secondary geography teacher with experience of teaching and tutoring KS3, GCSE, IGSE and A level geography. I have marked A level geography exam papers for Edexcel exam board and taught in several secondary schools in and around London.
I aim to inspire and build confidence in my students by creating an engaging, yet relaxed, learning environment. My tutoring sessions are focussed on consolidating specialist, geography knowledge, understanding key concepts and ‘big ideas’ and developing exam technique.
My children attend local schools and I have taught at a local school. I am therefore aware of the education system and the variety of schools in south west London, including the selective schools, and the entrance exams that exist.
I have taught in various secondary schools in inner and outer London through KS3 to GCSE and AS/ A2 level. My students have enjoyed success and many of my A level students have gone on to study at top UK universities, including LSE, UCL and Oxford. As a result I am confident in helping students make choices for university.
Alongside my teaching experience I am a qualified journalist and have written for many national newspaper and magazines including The Guardian and the Financial Times, in light of this practical experience I am able and very happy to teach English from primary level up to GCSE.
I tutor my students by encouraging them to become confident in their subject knowledge and by making the subject that they are studying interesting and fun. I encourage students to ask questions about the subject and to be honest about the areas where they feel they need support. I use a variety of techniques and technology in my sessions, from video clips and interactive games and presentations to more traditional worksheets and text books.
