I am an examiner for OCR and Edexcel exam boards and this job helps me to improve students' exam technique. I find that many students are hard working but sometimes don't do well in exams. My teaching includes lots of exam practice particularly in understanding what the examiners require. I have been called an inspirational teacher by colleagues and by my students, so hopefully I can make tutoring sessions enjoyable for you.
I offer support and advice for students applying to university through UCAS and will review and advise on personal statements.
