With my twenty five year experience of teaching History in leading UK independent schools and as an examiner, I am able to support you with a detailed understanding of content, exam techniques and how to revise effectively. My aim is to support you in your current learning and to help prepare you for further academic study at university. Having taught GCSE, IGCSE, IB and A Level History, I can offer support on a variety of academic programmes. In addition, I have much experience in Oxbridge preparation both for interviews and HAT assessments.
I have a record of outstanding performance both for grades and value added. Always placing pupil engagement at the centre of my teaching, I seek to develop learning habits through collaboration, communication and the construction of argument. Through monitoring and tracking academic performance, feedback and target referencing, I have sought to ensure that each of my pupils is challenged to reflect, make progress and reach their full potential.
I have taught History for twenty five years as a teacher, Head of Department and Deputy Head Academic in leading UK independent schools. My subject areas cover the full range of GCSE, IGCSE, A level and IB courses. Having served as a tutor with students across the secondary age range, I am experienced in providing academic guidance on many issues to support the building of confidence and resilience.
