I am a qualified teacher from London. I have taught in various secondary schools and currently work in the private sector, teaching at football club academies and to individual students. My approach is tailored to each individual student and based upon mutual respect, listening, calmness and friendliness. I really enjoy working with young people and getting to know what makes them tick as well as what they can't stand - and then trying to adapt my style accordingly! For one reason or another, I seem to build up a good and productive relationship with my students and think that this level of trust is important as the foundation of helping them learn better and of course pass exams.
My degree is in History and this is the area in which I specialise but I have taught English, Politics and Geography alongside this for many years now. I also teach the 11+ and entrance exams for grammar schools. I'll come with my own ideas but, ultimately, will listen to what the parent and, primarily, student need and want from lessons and base what we do around that. I prefer lessons in person but am also available to teach online if need be. It's always helpful to know the exam board before we start, so please try to find this out if you can!
To tell you a tiny bit about me in general - I love to travel and will go virtually anywhere if given the chance! I'm also a big football fan - support Arsenal. Not sure why I'm mentioning that, because it'll turn half of London away from me but oh well!
