I am currently a qualified History Teacher working in a secondary school in West Yorkshire. I am also the Head of the History Department and lead teacher for History at my school and have been teaching for 10 years. I also teach and tutor English as an additional language for children and adults. I also teach and tutor Spanish and French up to A-level and for adults and primary children.
I am passionate and enthusiastic about my job and the students I teach whether it be at my school or privately. I am committed to ensuring the best possible outcomes for all students regardless of ability, and have a proven track record of achieving personally 80% A*~C grades from my students at my school. Also privately, all but one of my language and history students has failed to get a grade C or higher with my tuition.
I have a friendly and laid back approach to tutoring and will address both exam content and how to answer exam style questions. For languages, there will be conversation practice as well as listening, reading and writing. I am committed just as much to my private students as my own school students and am flexible in my timings and arrangements. I will always endeavour where possible to work around the student`s arrangements.

Experience: Experience teaching GCSE classes for both Modern World and SHP courses and I have knowledge of all 3 exam boards- Edexcel, AQA and OCR. Edexcel is the exam board I am currently using. My department results are currently 74% A*~C with my own personal results sitting at 83% A*~C. I have particular strengths in getting students to achieve A*~A grades, with currently 38% of my students getting an A or A*. I also able to work with students who are currently working on D grades to get them a C grade or higher. I have excellent subject knowledge at GCSE level of Medicine and Treatment, American West, Transformation of Surgery, Germany 1918-45 and WW1. I also have knowledge of America during the 1920s and 1930s, the Cold War and the Vietnam War.
I have also done private A-level tuition and covered again all 3 exam boards with topics ranging from the Crusades, Germany 1918-1963, American Civil Rights from 1865-2000 and Russia from 1917-1989 as well as the Cold War in Asia from 1945-75 and Britain from 1900-1924 along with the French Revolution. I have particular strengths in exam technique and getting students to improve their work based on sources and exam questions based around this. I have also taught Bismarck`s Germany and Germany under Kaiser Wilhelm I and II. My A-level students have all achieved grades from A-C.

Lessons carried out in an informal and friendly manner with a gentle sense of humour making the lesson easy to learn.
Tracy is very knowledgeable and professional in Spanish and other languages.
Amazing teacher and very professional
Tracy has been a fantastic find for us. She has been able to identify our sons strengths and weaknesses and moved his French forward to help him be less stressed.
Tracy is warm, friendly and is very informative.
To date we have been very happy with Tracy. She is friendly and immediately puts you at ease. My daughter has been pleased with her and they get along well during their teaching sessions. She is helping my daughter with a speaking assessment for her exams. It has certainly helped having the additional time to practice with Tracy.
