Information about Ian

Hi everyone, I`m Ian, a fully qualified (PGCE with QTS) English and Media teacher with 15+ years of consistently `outstanding` teaching in a variety of positions and workplaces around the world. I am an engaging and learner focussed teacher who caters each of my classes to an individual`s personalised needs. I currently lecture on Games Design at University, tutor numerous learners in English Language and English Literature (both in terms of native and additional language teaching), and work with special needs learners on life skills and English and Maths functional skills.

I love working with individuals who are looking for that last extra bit of help in order for them to achieve to their best abilities. I am as comfortable helping learners through concepts for in depth understanding as I am challenging learners to go that little bit further. In any case, you can be assured that I will be catering for my tutees to a very high degree whilst ensuring a great deal of enjoyment in our work. I genuinely care about offering opportunity to all my learners and take great pride in being able to help students of all ages develop their confidence and succeed in their ambitions.

Availability: I am available across the week and at times designed to accommodate my learners` needs. I currently have a number of online classes and in person groups with whom I work but please get in touch to discuss appropriate times for sessions.

Willing to travel: 15 miles

Experience: My specialist skillset not only focuses on mainstream exam preparation work (be that A-Level, GCSE, or SATs) but also in Special Education Needs. I have extensive experience helping those with additional needs succeed in gaining mainstream qualifications. My methods often involve highlighting the options that can be afforded through non-traditional, more engaging online environments but are equally at home with established practises as well.

I specialise in GCSEs and A Levels and entrance exams for English related subjects as well as Film, Media, and Game Design from GCSE to degree. With knowledge of all the major awarding bodies, I am an expert in helping develop knowledge of what might be expected for learners and promoting confidence in exam answers. I also offer English as an Second or Other Language (ESOL) for learners aged between 3 and adult and understand the IELTs procedures very well. I have a background in education technology and have been part of teams devising and delivering content across the curriculum that helps learners achieve their potential in non-traditional settings. I have worked on a PhD at the University of Leeds in videogames, neuroscience, and learning and am continually feeding the findings from this into my teaching provision.
