I am a keen cyclist and in 2016 completed a 23000 km world cycle ride. I also race in triathlons and love to travel and hike in the mountains
My name is Stewart Blake and I am an UK qualified Geography teacher and tutor with over 20 years experience. I have been an online tutor since September 2011 and tutor GCSE/A'Level/IBDP Geography.
I qualified as a Geography teacher at the Institute of Education, London in 2002 and since that time I have worked in many leading secondary schools. I have worked as a Head of Geography and have taught in a range of different schools from state to prestigious independent schools.
In 2015, I qualified as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo) and so have a thourough knowledge of how to differentiate work to support students to achieve their potential.
Since 2007 I have worked as an exam marker for Edexcel GCSE and A Level examinations. This has given me an invaluable insight as to what exam boards expect and strategies for how students can easily maximise marks within final examinations, especially for extended written answers.
My role as an exam marker for Edexcel GCSE and A Level exam boards has given me an invaluable insight into strategies for how students can easily maximise marks within final examinations, especially for extended written answers. I have detailed knowledge of all of the main specifications for Geography at GCSE/A'level & IBDP (including coursework and Internal Assessment). I provide detailed feedback on all tasks including completed exam questions to ensure students understand and implement strategies focussed on improving the structure and content of written answers. All resources that are used in sessions are created so that they can be used to support independent revision.
Working with Stewart was an incredibly good and productive time. I would highly recommend it!
Stewart is an excellent tutor and my daughter really enjoys her lessons.
very helpful and honest. I understood clearly how to improve my IA and I am pleased with the lesson
Super productive and efficient, I now feel way more confident about my topics.
