Information about Rob

I have a degree in English Literature from University of Manchester and an MA in History from Queen Mary, University of London.

I completed my PGCE at Goldsmiths College in 2017 and have been working in a Secondary School since, teaching Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-Level English.

I have worked as a tutor for nine years, both before and during my work as a teacher in a school.

During this time, I have developed deep and current knowledge of curricula. I have also developed evidence-based pedagogical approaches which help students to make progress and achieve their potential.

I feel that a strength throughout my time teaching has been to form excellent relationships with students. I feel comfortable adapting my approach to the needs of each student to ensure that, as well as working towards achieving their academic goals, they enjoy their learning.

I have a lot of experience of planning and delivering lessons, and am able to ensure that the learning potential of every lesson is maximised.

I am extremely passionate about these subjects and take great pleasure in helping students to develop their knowledge and understanding of them. I also recognise that, very often, what holds a student back in Humanities subjects is not a lack of understanding of the subject so much as difficulties in expressing themselves in an academic style, and I have spent a lot of time working with students to successfully improve their essay writing and written work.

Whether a student is having difficulties with a particular topic or student, or is simply in need of some extra preparation before an important examination, I feel confident that I have the experience and knowledge to help them to progress. My friendly demeanour and enjoyment of teaching has also helped me to form good relationships with students, which I have found to be very important when working one on one over a long period of time.

Availability: I work part-time in a school, and so am available during Monday or Tuesday daytimes or Tuesday or Thursday evenings.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: Teaching: I have worked in a comprehensive school in South East London for the past two and a half academic years. I have taught English Literature and Language at KS3, KS4 (GCSE) and KS5 (A-Level).

Tutoring: I have been tutoring professionally since graduating and moving to London in 2011. In this time, I have worked with a large variety of students at different stages of their academic careers.

Much of my experience has been in helping GCSE and A-Level students prepare for their exams in Humanities subjects. My experience includes:

History GCSE and A-Level - all exam boards, all modules.
English Literature GCSE and A-Level - all exam boards, all modules.
English Language GCSE and A-Level - all exam boards, all modules.
Film Studies A-Level - WJEC
Politics A-Level - all exam boards.
Philosophy and Ethics (RS) A-Level - AQA and Edexcel.

5/5 Rating

Rob exuded professionalism and brought with him his current experience in A level Politics. He had immediate, pertinent and detailed suggestions on how to approach the examinations overall. He assisted with essay structures and in how to deal with changes to the syllabus - the new syllabus had only been examined once before. We have tried other tutors in the past, but Rob is a cut above. Thank you Rob, we are certain that other families and students will find your help essential.
