About Me

As a UK qualified teacher (PGCE/QTS) my enthusiasm extends beyond just helping students comprehend and excel in their studies but I am also dedicated to fostering a curiosity and engagement with learning at large.
In my career I have taught in both UK state schools and in the independent sector (which recently received 'Excellent in all areas during an ISI inspection).
All places of work have enabled me to successfully work with a variety of students from a multitude of backgrounds.

EXAMPLE PREVIOUS STUDENTS:

Angelo got a C for his A level Geography which is fantastic.
I wanted to thank you for 2 things, firstly taking Angelo on when he had no GCSE Geography. Then, working and pushing him to such a great result. Without you he wouldn't be going to his first choice option (University) or at all potentially.
He actually really enjoyed your classes also which is great.

Thank you for your time this evening however Izzy found the session very generalised. She was confused that you had a different opinion of which beaches she is studying are high energy and which are low energy beaches than her teacher did. She was hoping to come off the call with a clear "next steps" plan and confidence in what she is doing but she now feels panicky and unsure about how to move forwards. She feels she was told more " you might want to think about this" when she was hoping for real clarity. Sorry for the rating but I think you have maybe just not been the right fit for what we were looking for, or Izzy has not been able to be clear enough about what she is looking for.
