- Where do you teach?
I prefer to teach at students' homes, travelling is not an issue as I have a car. I am able to travel to areas of West London (Hounslow, Hillingdon, Acton, Ealing, Greenford), NW London (Harrow and Wembley), and SW London (Kingston, Teddington, Twickenham, Richmond, Surbiton, Tolworth).
- When are you available?
I am able to teach on a Saturday 8am - 5pm, Sunday 8am - 3pm, Tuesday and Wednesday 5pm - 9pm. I would be able to tutor during school holidays.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach sixth form students (aged 16 - 19 years) and key stage 4 students (aged 14 - 16 years).
- Do you have a personal message for students?
In my experience, students who are positive and set themselves challenging goals will succeed. Students who have the confidence to speak their mind and seek guidance will enjoy their time as a student and acheive more than they thought possible.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have 12 years of teaching experience. Within the third year of my teaching I was promoted to Head of Economics and by the fourth year I was promoted to Head of Department (Economics, Sociology and Psychology). I then became Head of Year at my second school, another large comprehensive, where after six years I returned to being a Head of Department. Both positions have provided me with extensive experience and strategies on how to direct students to enable them to acheive their full potential and maximise their life chances.
I currently work in a school that was deemed by OFSTED as being 'Outstanding' last year and as a result have a diverse and innovative approach to teaching and learning.
I have worked as a researcher for an economics 'think tank' that evaluated public policies, and a piece of my research was published in the 'Financial Times'.
I am an A2 examiner for AQA, which has provided me with an invaluable insight into examination skills and techniques that should be used by students.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a CRB check already done as I work in a school.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I trained to be teacher at The Institute of Education, London.
