About the lesson

I am a very experienced ex-secondary school teacher of mainly A2 & AS/ IB/ GCSE /KS3 GEOGRAPHY. My second academic subject is Maths but have also taught English - both of these subjects to GCSE Level.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I am a GEOGRAPHY teacher at A2/AS/GCSE/KS3 level. I have also taught Higher and Standard Grade Geography in Scotland. In addition I have taught GCSE Humanities and GCSE & A Level Travel & Tourism. I can have taught) GCSE MATHS and GCSE ENGLISH. I now ONLY concentrate on Tutoring Geography to all levels.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Teacher's Certificate (1964 - 1967) (Geography & Maths) - St. John's College , York.
B. Ed (Hons.) Leeds University: 1979. Geography & Education.
incomplete M. Ed. - Birmingham University (1983 - 1986);
AMIEC (1974).

- How much do you charge?

Depends upon the academic level of the subject - between £32 and £40 per hour: IB/A Level /AS = £40 per hour; GCSE/ ISEB 13 + Scholarship = £35 per hour; & Key Stage 3/ ISEB 13+ = £ 32 per hour. I OFFER MY FIRST TUTORING SESSION FOR FREE. I may also charge a one lesson set-up initial fee only, depending upon how much administration and research is involved for me. I charge 45p per mile over any return car journey exceeding 25 miles from my home. If the return journey is over 35 miles in total, then I can only offer sessions on Skype. If a client would like more than one tutee taught per hour's lesson at the same time, then a half-price charge will be the price for each additional student, up to a maximum of 4 tutees at one time. In addition, if a student requests me to mark extra exam questions, outside of tutorial homework tasks set by me, then I will request a charge £8 per exam question at A2/AS /IB/GCSE level.
Payment can be in cash; by cheque; through paypal; or through internet banking.

- Where do you teach?

I have been tutoring students one-to-one mainly in Geography privately in the local area (in Milton Keynes, Olney) for the past EIGHT years. I visit and teach students one-to-one in their own homes. I also tutor students on line via Skype and I have tutored on-line for Tute in the past. In the last four years I have tutored on-line via Skype: AQA GCSE Geography students who live in Prestwich, Manchester & Wokingham; OCR A2 & AS Geography students who live in Harrow, Taunton & Exeter; AQA AS Geography student that lives in Cambridge; four separate ISEB 13+ Geography students, whom live in Wembley; Stanmore, Middlesex; Westminster; & Colchester; & one student studying for WJEC AS & A2 Geography who lives in Llangollen. In 2013 I tutored on-line an IB Higher Geography Dutch student who lives in Mexico City and another IB Danish student who lives in Cobham, Surrey. Both attended International Schools. In 2015 I tutored on-line an A2 Edexcel Geography tutee who lives in Ningbo, China. In 2014 I tutored AQA A2 Geography students on-line via Skype who lived in: Bradford; Hounslow and Blairgowrie. In 2014 - 2015 I tutored on Skype A2 & AS Geography students who live in Aylesbury; Hong Kong; Hounslow; Croydon; Colchester; & Lewisham, in additional to local tutees.
In 2016, 2015 & 2014 I tutored Geography for two revision centres: "Aim for A" & Hillcrest Revision, over the Easter holidays. In 2016 I also began tutoring A Level Geography for "Learning is Good" - an excellent online tutoring agency.

I am available most times during the week finishing my last tutorial by 18.00. ( i. e starting by 5 pm) - any time during the day Mondays to Fridays between 10. 00. and 18. 00. I do NOT tutor at weekends or in the evenings.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I am now tutoring on-line via Skype with a web cam from home. If tutoring on-line, I can tutor anywhere in the UK or abroad. I am especially interested in tutoring IB Geography world wide. I offer of a free introductory Skype lesson for on-line tutees in order to sort out all the details of their tutoring; times & dates for tutoring; payment; how the tutee wishes to proceed; and to initially meet the new tutee. I have also worked as an on-line tutor for 'Tute' and learnt to use Fast Meeting as a tutoring tool. I recently began tutoring for 'Learning is Good' on-line, tutoring through their on-line web educational platform - Scribblar.

As a Tutor of Geography, I have been very successful (see my recent Testimonials & References) in helping tutees improve their A2/AS/IB/13 + ISEB/IGCSE & GCSE Geography grades and especially improving tutees EXAM SKILLS & TECHNIQUES.
