I am currently an Examiner for WJEC in GCSE Geography. I have been a Teacher of Geography for 7 years in a Secondary School.
After gaining a 2:1 BA Honours degree in Geography, I was selected to be fast tracked on the Graduate Teacher Programme where I became a fully qualified teacher and soon became the Initial Teacher Training Coordinator responsible for training University students on the PGCE Course.
I have another 2 years experience of teaching abroad as a Teacher of English for Secondary Schools in Southern Japan. I have taught Japanese to KS5 AS/A2 students in the ABC qualification at Level 2 and 3 in reading, writing, speaking and listening skills and gained 100% pass rate.
I have been teaching 11-18 year olds Geography GCSE and GCE (AS/A2) Level for 9 years and can offer support in good subject and syllabus-focused teaching.
Being a Geography Examiner, I have first-hand experience of the structure and expectations of GCSE Examinations to ensure the student is better prepared for the pressure and requirements of the examination process. My lessons can be tailored to suit individual requirements, including exam technique, exam practice, case study revision and skills based questions (data response, decision-making exercises). In addition, for A level candidates, I can support extended question responses and essay based questions for A Level requirements in both Physical and Human Geography.
I have mentored students in Extended Project Qualifications at A Level standard. In addition to teaching Geography, I can offer additional Modern Foreign Language qualifications in beginners Japanese for those students who have an interest in the Japanese language and for those who are looking to broaden/enhance their Personal Statements for University applications.
I have also mentored students with their Geography coursework in preparation for Common Entrance exams.

review(s) for Laura.
Laura is very organised and professional and in the short time she has been tutoring my daughter has made a big impression. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a Geography tutor.
She is lovely and very helpful
I highly recommend Laura as a Geography tutor.
She is a very enthusiastic teacher who is knowledgeable and reliable.
Laura was teaching my daughter her Geography for little more than 3 months before her GCSE and my daughter has got a wonderful result in this subject. She was predicted to get a B after her mock, but she scored an A* in her GCSE. This wouldn`t have been possible without Laura`s help. Firstly, her teaching technique made my daughter interested in Geography and her exam technique helped my daughter to score high in exam. Laura seems to be familiar with the syllabus of all boards. Her other qualities like punctuality and coming prepared for every lesson make her an exemplary tutor.
Laura is currently tutoring my son. She is reliable, professional, plans her sessions ahead of lesson, flexible in her tutoring and a friendly person.
Friendly, knowledgeable and reliable.
