Methodology

My teaching method is based around the individual. Finding out what the individuals needs are as a learner including their learning style and helping learners to develop the skills that they require to pass their assessment as well as other skills such as skills in revision and application of knowledge that they can apply throughout their academic studies. My main aim is to teach learners to be independent, free thinking, confident and aspirational students.

Experience

I'm a fully qualified professional teacher with a PGCE from the Institution of Education in London. I have been teaching for 14 years now and have taught students from all walks of life and from various ages. I have predominantly taught A levels in schools but have also worked as a private tutor tutoring English and Maths as well as science at secondary level and A levels. I have also taught in an international school in Spain and speak 4 languages.
