Experienced independent school head of department specialising in social subjects, gepgraphy, history, politics. Exam setter with much experience of dissertaion and assignment work.

Methodology

I like to make lessons enjoyable and try to stimulate discussion with my students. In addition I like to prepare clear notes and essay help specific to the individual student. Lessons are geared very much to the production of well written essays which remain the core form of assessment.

Background

I have been teaching for over 30 years at a high academic level in independent schools. The vast majority of my students have gone on to university education, and I have also taught many successful Oxbridge applicants. I have experience across three subject areas and am currently a head of department in a successful independent school.
