About the lesson
My approach is flexible; all learners have different needs and learn in different ways. I contact my tutee beforehand, to find out as much as I can about the ways they like to learn, this enables me to plan and prepare sessions so the tutee gets the most out of the time we have together. Homework is set and thorough assessment and feedback form an integral part of the tutoring sessions.
As a highly skilled and experienced teacher in Sociology and Health and Social Care, I am able to help the tutee master those tricky areas that may take more time to get to grips with. These areas are usually on specific topic areas or skills that relate to how to answer exam questions. These skills are vital for exam success. Also a qualified and experienced life coach, I often combine coaching and NLP strategies within the context of academic support; to ensure that motivation never wavers and exam stress, panic and anxiety is dramatically reduced.

My success rate this year, 2019, has been a 100%. With students achieving either grade A / A*, or increasing their re-sit / predicted grade by 2 grades. Year on year, success rates have been consistently 100%; with all students securing their grade for their university of choice.
I have a track record of success with undergraduate support. Tutees increase either their final degree classification, or are able to progress onto the next level of study, if they were referred. I provide support, direction and academic and academic sign posts of where and how to improve through extending the breadth and depth of essay writing and dissertation work.
I am highly experienced and deliver lessons which engage and stretch. I have 26 years experience in teaching Sociology, Psychology and Health and Social Care.
I am a qualified Coach, Counsellor and NLP Practitioner. I can therefore provide support for students with anxiety and exam stress; if required. I use Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques (NLP )and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) to help young people cope with everyday challenges and the challenges of study. I am qualified to do so.
I have taught Sociology and Health and Social Care since 1993 and introduced GNVQ BTEC programmes in Health and Social Care in different sixth form colleges and have led and managed Sociology departments. I have the expertise required to ensure academic success for all tutees; regardless of the exam board or level.
At have experience in delivering Sociology at GCSE Level and A Level, Psychology at A Level, and Health and Social Care, at BTEC Levels 2 and 3.
I scaled back my departmental roles to focus on more holistic training and approaches to education.

In addition to my role in education, I have 14 years experience of pastoral work with students; coaching clients/students and 5 years experience of practicing NLP and CBT. The strategies I use can help overcome stress and anxiety, which I incorporate during the sessions.
