I am a Geography Teacher, Head of Year and Head of Department. I have 6 years of teaching experience of a range of exam specifications. I have taught the new GCSE and A Level specifications for 2 years and achieved excellent results in them. Last year my GCSE classes were in the top 10% of the country for their results. I have an excellent success record with private tutees, with all but one achieving A* at GCSE. I have a passion for Geography and for teaching. I have various experience teaching abroad and with vulnerable groups, in these positions I have been able to teach over a language barrier. I enjoy working with young people, particularly building their confidence and attainment. I have previous mentored students, volunteered with 'Aim Higher' to support students to go to university. I have also volunteered alongside students with visual impairment in higher education, to support their research and studies. This has helped me develop excellent communication skills.I currently work in Ilford and am able tutor in the surrounding area.
I am currently a Geography Teacher, Head of Year and Head of Department. I teach all ages (11-18years). I teach the AQA A Level and AQA GCSE (9 to 1). I know these specifications particularly well, but I am able to teach other specifications. I specialise in Human Geography at A Level. I have lots of tutoring experience through the school and have led various revision classes for higher and foundation papers. I have a history of excellent geography examination results.
I have an interactive teaching style, whilst targeting the specific areas of concern. I am able to monitor and assess progress frequently. This is particularly useful for exam practice. I can adjust my teaching style to the audience accordingly. I also have a large bank of exam questions readily available. I am able to create my own resources to support student learning and assessment.
