English, Media Studies
I was educated in Manchester, studied English and Latin at Leeds University and worked in finance before moving into teaching in 1999, studying a PGCE in English at the Institute of Education, University of London. I also gained an M.A. in Education from the same institution in 2009. I have over nineteen years’ experience of English teaching, with nine years teaching in London and three spent in Auckland, New Zealand. Since September 2014, I have been teaching in Stockport, Greater Manchester.
I have been Second-in-Charge of English, a Key Stage 3 English Co-ordinator, Head of Media Studies, as well as Senior English GCSE Examiner for Edexcel. I am currently in charge of Intervention Strategies for English. My subject knowledge is one of my strengths, and this has led me to writing educational materials for Heinemann/Pearson. I have extensive experience of one-to-one tuition at all levels, with specialism in moving students into Grade 9 (A/A*grades) at GCSE and A Level. As a tutor, I teach across Key Stage 2-5, preparing pupils for their examinations.
