I have worked in the commercial business world and gained experience before moving into my passion for teaching. I want to concentrate on turning students I Can't statements into I Can, I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve they just need the correct guidance and that all important Mindset. Each student is different and gains the knowledge and understanding in different ways, as a tutor it is my job to find that way and release that potential.
My approach to teaching is to find the right method for the student. I believe each student has their own style of learning and we need to harness that style in order to succeed. I discuss the needs of the student and then assess the ability through a test. From the results I create a individual learning plan, using this plan we work together to find the best learning style ( practical, theory based, written, spoken, mix of styles) to turn the student from a knowledge and understanding into a expert and evaluator. I aim to have my students having a positive growth mindset and leave saying I Can do that!
I have over 10 years experience working in schools and science centers. I have privately tutored students to GCSE level in the past with great success.
I am an experienced educator, having taught in schools and privately for a number of years. I am equipped to teach History and Politics to a high standard, as well as English and Maths to younger or EAL students.

History: Historiography, source analysis, essay writing, exam technique, British political history, history of medicine, WWI and WWII, the cold war, early modern English cultural history, industrial history, colonial history, and many more.
Politics: Political theory, government, UK politics, US politics, political ideas,
