Hi, I’m Johnette and I have over ten years teaching experience in bilingual, state and international schools (majority of my students are from China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, India, Middle East and Europe) . I've taught KS2 - A levels History, Geography and English as a Foreign Language in classroom and online settings. I used to work in a secondary school in England and have a full DBS. I’m also a CIE History Assessment Specialist/ Assistant Examiner.
I'm offering tailored lessons to help you or your child learn History and/or Geography on all specifications (eg. CIE, IB, Edexcel Intl, AP) as I have a thorough knowledge of the requirements for all of these. I can help you learn the content, give exam techniques or if you just want someone to chat with/ practice your oral English with! I'm available to mark exam papers for IGCSE- A levels History and Geography.
I have a proven track record including helping my students achieve the highest marks for Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE History in the whole of China (in June 2010 and June 2016 examinations).
I enjoy teaching students of different ability levels and cultural backgrounds and take pleasure in making the subject interesting for my students. When teaching, I aim to provide a stimulating and interactive learning environment. I plan my lessons with care to make sure that I've included appropriate activities and exercises for the students’ level by using a variety of teaching strategies and methods to support the engagement of all learners (including making provisions for students with learning difficulties by differentiating activities that are suitable for the different learning styles). I also like to help students achieve their full academic potential and get them inspired about the world around them.

fantastic and informative lesson
Johnette is a great tutor, who is fun and makes the learning process very enjoyable! I learnt a great deal and enjoyed the lesson very much!
Lots of good resources were introduced to me, which was very good!
Johnette is an engaging History teacher. I've only had 1 lesson and I can't wait for the next. 100% recommended
Johnette has been an outstanding teacher. I've enjoyed every single lesson with her and give my mother positive feedback each time. I started lessons last September so that i could do the IGCSE exams this year. I was really worried that i wouldn't be able to finish the content however with Johnettes help and continuous effort I was more and more confident. I don't know how much more to emphasise the amount of dedication and hardwork she put in to help me in my exams to the point where she gave up her free time to give me extra lessons. I wish i had her from the start of my secondary school. Thank you so much! -Rowdha, IGCSE History student
History/Geography lessons Johnette is a wonderful teacher, aiming for her students to reach their full potential. Her lessons have helped me study IGCSEs while spending some time focusing on what I did not fully comprehend. I highly recommend!
