I have been teaching A levels and GCSEs for 20 plus years. I am also a WJEC and Edexcel/Pearson examiner/moderator. I achieve consistently excellent results and can offer face to face or individualised e learning support. I guarantee significant improvement in understanding all aspects of historical study and most importantly how to pass exams with high grades. My focus is on showing students how to plan and present their work effectively to believe in themselves and consequently overcome their weaknesses in essay writing. I pride myself on having the ability to take students to another level in understanding the expectations of examiners and have a wealth of resources for students to access. I have had considerable success with Oxbridge candidates who have developed their skill levels to gain entry to their first choice university.
I have 20 years plus teaching experience of A levels & GCSE history. I am also an examiner & moderator for WJEC and Edexcel History. Specialisms include USA, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa and India, however, having 2 degrees in History I am qualified in all areas of the current specifications of all exam boards and have successfully taught topics in most areas.
My approach to tutoring is simple but effective. I give priority to breaking down the barriers that prevent learners achieving. Following a complimentary meeting where I assess the skill levels and understanding of the learner, I provide individualised and effective strategies to ensure the learner gets what they want and need. 121s are supported by substantial e-learning that ensures the learner has consistent advice and guidance to hand. Work is set to deadlines and marked promptly to provide the learner with the very best tuition and value for money. There is no limit to the amount of e learning support provided or required and the learner can have as many 121s as they feel are necessary in any one month without any extra cost other than the previously agreed costs. Resources will also be provided including essay writing frames and action plans. Prior to exam periods contact hours can be increased again at no extra charge to ensure the learner is adequately prepared for the exams. My love for History inspired me to be a teacher of History and I retain that desire to want to help others. .
