My background teaching a variety of subjects and qualifications gives me a unique approach to tutoring, combining traditional talk and chalk (pen these days!) with practical exercises and online resources and tasks based around student focused websites that I run along with diagnostic websites that are generally available.
With 30 years of experience as a teacher of numerous subjects. My degree is Theology, hence more than 10 years experience teaching Religious Education and other humanities subjects. For the last 20 years I have successfully taught ICT and more recently Computer Science, taking groups of students through a number of qualifications including GCSE ICT, GNVQ IT, BTEC IT (Levels 2 and 3), OCR Nationals, Cambridge Nationals in iMedia, GCSE Computer Science and A Level Computer Science.
