Experienced humanities teacher. A level and GCSE History are my main specialisms, plus GCSE RE and GCSE Geography.
I am currently training as a Counsellor for teenagers so can work well with people experiencing stress, anxiety or low self esteem.
The opportunity to have an education should be treasured and form a part of the whole person.
