I am an English GCSE specialist and Edexcel Examiner. I teach home-educated students and adult learners. Having been a secondary English teacher for 15 years, I decided it was time to branch into something new, providing the same level of secondary expertise to those outside of the classroom. I provide students with the skills and knowledge needed to pass exams in English Language and English Literature. I also teach KS3 and pre-GCSE courses, designed to equip students with the necessary skills to complete a course at GCSE level. During my time as a Lead Secondary English Teacher and Second in Department, I built excellent relationships with my students and experienced success in providing students with outstanding results at GCSE.
I am an Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ English teacher, with extensive experience of guiding students through the necessary skills required to progress in English Language and Literature. All English courses will lead you through a personalised learning approach, catering for specific needs and provide those all important English skills to pass exams at GCSE. As an experienced Edexcel Examiner, I also have access to up to the minute assessment materials and grade criteria. I provide weekly detailed feedback to students and can mark work live on screen if preferred, providing fast and in the moment feedback. Qualifications include: BA Hons English Language & Literature, PGC Journalism, PGCE Secondary English Language and Literature.
