Fully qualified Teacher Status and regular experience of Private Tuition since October 1990

I am a Tutor for the Workers Education Association (founded in 1903) and I have given lectures and workshops to various Community Bodies, Family History Associations and the Yorkshire Medical and Dental History Society.

Since October 1990, I have enjoyed considerable experience in different kinds of teaching on both an individual and group basis. In addition, I have designed some highly useful educational aids, samples of which can be brought to any interview. Recently, I have been developing my professional skills in the ICT and web page authoring area. However, I am not qualified to teach students with special needs or who suffer from major psychological or social problems.

In terms of personality, I am a reliable, intelligent hard working person with good communication skills and a determination to complete any particular task. I can work on my own initiative and in a team with both flexibility and confidence. In addition, I am a systematic thinker with an ability to summarize complex information in such a way that it becomes readily understandable to a person of average intelligence.


Aimed at: Intermediate and Advanced.


The above rates excludes the cost of fares (usually a bus day rider). A reading fee maybe charged if a student wishes me to read substantial pieces of material.

For legal reasons, I do not: -
1) Write out student essay or dissertations
2) Engage in vast amounts of photocopying on their behalf.
3) Engage in any form of advice giving over personal or financial matters
4) Get involved in any disputes a student (or guardian) may have with their educational provider
