Information about Moira
My name is Moira. I have had extensive experience as a teacher of English (20 years) spanning primary to A Level/Advanced Higher. I have been Head of a large English and Expressive Arts Faculty, and worked as a senior examiner for KS2, KS3, GCSE, AS/A2 English Language and English Literature- and still do! I have lived intermittently in Scotland, so have regularly tutored students for the National Five, Higher and Advanced Higher (English). For 10 years, I worked in a university as head of post graduate and undergraduate secondary/primary teacher training in English/Literacy. My most recent employment has included: writing course books for primary English;; training teachers in the UK and abroad on how to raise standards in reading and writing ;; working for various exam boards writing mark schemes for English Language and English Literature;; designing assessment packages for academy chains;; working as an Associate Tutor on Glasgow University`s Teacher Education programme. I have moved permanently to Scotland so would like to continue my tutoring work there. I can honestly say that there has been - across all areas of tuition - a 100% success rate. References are available.
