I have taught English and Drama in Secondary schools for over thirty years, with students of all abilities.
I also work as a GCSE examiner for English and Lit , so have plenty of experience in ensuring students are well prepared for exams.
I am happy to help students of all abilities with general English support in KS 2 &3 and with helping pupils prepare for their GCSE exams.
I have over thirty years of teaching in several Secondary schools, working with a wide range of abilities and ages. Part of my role has been to provide one to one and small group English intervention work. During that time I have also been the Pastoral Head of Lower School and an Academic Attainment Leader. I now work as an online and face to face tutor with numerous students.
My main teaching subject is English ,which I have taught to pupils from Y7 up to Y13. I have also taught History and Drama to GCSE.
I have worked as an examiner and Team Leader for several exam boards for many years and therefore have an excellent knowledge and insight into exam requirements, especially for the new specifications.
I have also worked with the examination boards on KS2 & 3 SATS.
Needless to say I am passionate about reading and believe that developing good reading skills can be the key to success in virtually all subject areas.
