Information about Dion

Specialist Head of Geography to GCSE and A Level, with a real passion for teaching Geography and helping others be the best they can be. Geography is a sprawling, ragged, gorgeous discipline. Quite simply, I love teaching it!

My approach is highly flexible, innovative and supportive. With a wealth of teaching and learning resources and activities at my disposal, each session will be tailored to the needs of the tutee. My aim is to make each session enjoyable yet rigorous to help tutees gain the highest grades.

I have a holistic approach to tutoring, with a good balance struck between the teaching of subject content, study skills and examination technique. Homework can be set at the end of each session, which will include a personalised revision program for exam season.

Availability: I am available evenings and weekends. I live in Godmanchester but work west of Cambridge. I can travel to you if you are near to these areas. Online tuition, tuition in my own home, or a blend of in-person and online tuition can be arranged.

For the time being I can only accept KS3 or KS4 students due to high demand.

Willing to travel: 20 miles

Experience: 10+ years teaching experience in two Ofsted-rated `Outstanding` secondary comprehensive schools. Exceptionally strong examination results that are consistently above national averages. My department was in the top 3% of schools nationally for pupil progress at GCSE for grades 4-9 in 2018.

My last A2 Geography class gained 75% A*-B grades with almost all students meeting or exceeding their aspirational target grades. 5 students out of 19 achieved A* grades, with one achieving full UMS marks.

I also have experience in tutoring and working with pupils on a one-to-one basis, again to strong outcomes.

I am currently Head of Geography at a secondary school in Cambridge. I enjoy keeping up-to-date with recent educational research in teaching, learning, and memory skills. I also have access to the very latest and most effective educational resources to support your son/daughter.

We have been very pleased with Dion`s help so far. My son needed some support with knowledge and exam technique, he found Dion to be friendly and engaging, and seemed genuinely more enthusiastic about geography after just a few lessons. Dion had obviously spent time carefully preparing for the lessons and provided some excellent resources/notes tailored to our son`s needed. Would definitely recommend him! (NB our lessons were carried out over Zoom which has not been any problem-in fact saved on travel time)

Would thoroughly recommend. Some aspects of the new AQA Geography GCSE 9-1 specification are quite tricky but with Dion`s excellent tutoring, my son is feeling much more confident about the exam.
