My teaching method is collaborative and interactive, always seeking the highest challenge through questioning. You will be given starter tasks to challenge your thinking and already apply the skills for a particular task, e.g. analysis, comparing, grammar-related. To explore language you will experience various perspectives as a reader AND writer to gain a full understanding of how particular features of language are used for effect.
I am a fully qualified teacher for English and German (GCSE and A-level) and have been teaching privately and in schools for over 20 years with experience across a range of exam boards, both in the UK and internationally. I have worked as an examiner for UK exam boards since 2011 and bring this professional insight to my teaching.
Whilst English is my current teaching subject, I also lead public speaking and German as a foreign language as extra-curricular activities. I speak German and English fluently. In the classroom, I am considered enthusiastic, fun, dynamic and energetic, and my students appreciate my strong subject knowledge, a high level of challenge and swift constructive feedback, which I give both verbally and in writing.
I have worked internationally at senior management level and previously taught at a secondary school in Surrey for nine years. From 2009 I jointly led a successful English Department, graded “outstanding” in all areas by Ofsted in September 2011.
Furthermore, I completed a Master’s degree in Education in 2013 through the University of Chichester. My areas of specialism are, among others: creativity, languages and developing confident writers.
I am a professional marker for two major UK national examination boards, which has enabled me to understand how to get top grades for my students. I currently assess GCSE English Literature, but I have also marked the Language specification.
I enjoy running, cycling and being active outdoors. I read widely, dabble in some creative writing of my own and enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am friendly, flexible, inspired by learning and, as, much as possible, want to know “everything about everything”.
