I have the responsibility to lead a team on external and internal assessment within my exam board role. So I can support command verb interpretation of exams and coursework. I have a wealth of resources and use OneNote for online support, visible to learners and parents, both in a session and outside, so the learner AND parents can see and monitor progress.
I am passionate about learning and my own self-development. I have completed 120 credits of an MBA (at DISTINCTION level), which I hope to achieve in 2022. Learning is fundamental to understand the learners day to day journey to exam success, and I am proud to be a student myself!

Feedback For Luke (4)
My grandson, Jack had exams looming in Cambridge, iGCSE Computer Science. We desperately needed a tutor. We were so lucky to have found Luke. He was familiar with the exam and that was a great help. In addition to this: 1) Luke was so organised and quick to map what needed to be done to the time frame and produce a structured plan. 2) He shared this plan with us so we were all working together. This would maximise the outcome as each of us were utilised effectively. 3) He communicated really well with Jack, which meant that Jack embraced the tuition rather than digging his heels in. 3) Luke cares a great deal about his students and has a lot of empathy for them. In a nut shell, great people skills, caring, talented and skilled teacher & so well organised. Honestly dont know what we would have done without his help.
Weve only had Luke for a few lessons but hes been amazing. My son has said the lessons are so helpful and hes learnt so much already. Luke is captivating and by far the best online tutor weve had.
Tutors Response :
Thank you Linda, that is really kind of you and much appreciated. Many thanks, Luke
We engaged Luke to help our son with his GCSE Computer Science coursework as he is home-schooled. My son enjoyed his very well-planned lessons and Luke built up a rapport with him quickly. Luke gave me feedback after every lesson and was pro-active in spotting areas he needed to work on and giving us advice on ways forward. It was clear to me that Luke genuinely wanted to support my son, rather than just going through the motions as some do. i would highly recommend him.
Great teacher, very patient, clear teaching done in a fun way. Excellent
