Information about John
Having graduated from University with a Geography honours degree I have since completed a PGdip (Environmental Management and Sustainable Development) and pgce (teacher of Geography). I have worked in 2 schools. Both highly successful establishments in the Manchester area and a south London school, (currently I work as a head of department in the Geography subject). Since undertaking my teaching career I have had the opportunity to teach both Geography and RE extensively while gaining Key Stage 3 experience with the English subject.
Preference for tutoring is at the home of the student as I feel this is a space where the student will feel most comfortable and be receptive to the additional learning he or she is undertaking. My preffered method of teaching varies from child to child and as with my lessons in school, all lessons will be adapted to the needs of the child ensuring that content covered strictly follows the syllabus.

Experience: Tutoring Experience:
Extensive experience has been gained within my role as both a teacher and examiner with a proven track record of ensuring students achieve the grade they both deserve and are capable of.
Having taught in a South London school for 3 years and and now back in the North of England I have a good understanding of how to tailor lessons to the individual and ensuring that students are able to successfully apply their knowledge to potential exam questions they may be asked.
This has further been built upon as my role as an examiner for a large examination board. Understanding exactly what examiners are looking for has enabled my lessons to be tailored to ensure that lessons can be targeted on the key topics and issues in which students will be examined.
