My aim is always to build a positive and supportive relationship with students. I develop tutoring programmes with the student so that our work together is clearly focused on areas that they have identified for development.

My usual tutoring fee is in the £35-40 range. I am happy to teach A Level and GCSE courses with the fees for these being discussed on an individual basis. If tuition involves extensive travel then there may be an additional cost for this.

I tutor online and at students' homes. I live in a village which is equidistant from Milton Keynes, Northampton and Bedford. I work for part of the week in the City of London and have some availability in Central/North London.

I have weekday and weekend availability. I tutor during both school term and holiday times.

I am experienced in using online platforms both to tutor and to teach.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught in secondary schools for 18 years during which time I have been a Head of Department in a school, a Special Needs Coordinator and a Gifted and Talented Coordinator. I am an experienced examiner for both A Level and GCSE courses: across my career I have examined for OCE, CIE, Edexcel, WJEC and AQA. My tutoring experience involves both in-person tuition and online. The latter has included working with students who are home educated during which I have delivered entire A Level (Psychology and Sociology) and iGCSE courses (History and RE).
I also have significant experience working with students who have additional needs. This has included managing specialist provisions for academically able students who have autism, Aspergers and dyslexia. I am also experienced in working with young people who have high anxiety levels.
