Information about Lynette

I love teaching and enthuse about my subjects. Geography & Earth Sciences are so much fun, a natural balance between the Arts & Sciences, subjects which are so relevant today. Geography is both topical and conceptual by nature, so naturally it has become a very popular choice at degree level in the post 2016 era. As a subject discipline, it is certainly loved by employers.
I have taught Geography in various 11-18 schools and colleges for many years now and so I can offer a great deal of experience. I also mark A Level papers for a leading exam boards. I have recently gained much experience of both the New A Level and GCSE Course, having taught Edexcel, AQA, and Cambridge International.
I personally find one-to-one tutoring so rewarding so I purposely make time for it alongside my part-time college teaching role. Today, with large class sizes and unfortunately a lack of individual help in schools and colleges, the demand for personal tuition is ever increasing, as this can reap great rewards for tutees and for this reason I want to help as many students as I can. It warms my heart to hear how well my past students have done, improving on their personal targets.
When it comes to starting college, students find the leap from GCSE to A Level a challenging one, and this is where one-to-one guidance can be such a help. There are new disciplines required for the new 2016+ courses especially for the personal fieldwork project. Last year almost all of my 18 A Level tutees achieved A`s & B`s (some were originally predicted D`s!) and most achieved their first university choices. It is lovely that they keep in touch! They all worked so hard and deserved to do well.
One-to-one tutoring can make all the difference, building much needed confidence and extra training in exam technique and revision skills. Some topics can be tricky when it comes to achieving the necessary marks required, so practising exam questions and going through papers with a mark scheme, giving the necessary feedback, can certainly improve performance. My aim is to ultimately encourage independent learning and for my A Level students the ability to self mark.
There are plenty of learning aids and resources out there today, but often it is hard to find the "wood from the trees". Assessing the individual needs and learning styles of every pupil, followed by guiding them to the right resources is part of what I offer (and it works!) followed by custom made lessons with weekly follow ups. This approach naturally requires flexibility, experience and maturity on the part of the Tutor and after over 30 of teaching (always with GCSE & A Level classes in school) and private tutoring, I feel I have a lot to offer my students.

Availability: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursdays daytime & evenings during term time. Fortnightly on Saturday mornings when demand is great. More slots maybe available during holidays when I do special workshops and revision classes for A Level Geography & GCSE Science.

After School

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: EXPERIENCE- Over my varied teaching career (28+ years), I offer tutees much by way of experience, having taught Geography from Year 7 to Year 13, in ten different 11-18 schools, as well as having lectured in "A" Level Geography at FE colleges, most recently Godalming College. I have built up a wealth of resources to work from and share with students, so for this reason I prefer to work from home, where I have a room especially set up for tutoring; my resources all on tap! I have experience in coaching pupils in Geography and Geology to GSCE, and A level (various boards including the New 2016+ Spec) and in addition I am a Moderator/Examiner in A Level Geography AQA board.
In addition I am an experienced Science Teacher, qualified to teach all three Sciences (including CE) to GCSE (9-1) level, including iGCSE. Past students have told me how I have helped them gain a greater confidence in both Biology and Chemistry (occasionally Physics). They often say how hard it is in a large class to get the help they need, this is where one-to-one tutoring is both beneficial and rewarding. My former pupils will happily provide testimonials.
Over the years my work in and out (through voluntary youth work for example) of the classroom has involved extensive interaction with young people both as individuals and in groups. This has helped me understand young people from their perspective, and in addition with my training in Pastoral Care, these experiences bring added value to my academic teacher training. I see each person as a unique individual and I take pleasure in helping to bring out the very best in each student. This involves both encouragement and mentoring young people to believe in themselves and to adopt a disciplined approach to their studies. Positive one-to-one tutoring/coaching (especially in exam technique) plays a vital role in building both confidence and self-esteem so leading to success. Success then breeds success!

Lynette is tutoring my son for A level Geography. He finds the sessions useful and, because Lynette explains concepts well, easy to follow. Lynette uses exam questions to ensure good knowledge and understanding of the content which my son finds extremely helpful.
