I am a former RE, Philosophy and History (A level teacher). I taught for eight years until 2016, in high achieving secondary schools in London (Tower Hamlets and Camden). I was Head of Department for Philosophy and RE and only left the profession to pursue a funded PhD position in Education at Warwick University. I have experience both as a classroom teacher, and providing one to one tuition. I am familiar with all the most up to date specifications (Progress 8 and A levels) and have excellent record of supporting students though GCSE, A level and currently am also an academic writing mentor at university, making me familiar with the full range of academic levels. I am a creative teacher, and was regularly graded 'outstanding'. I help pupils learn, so they really understand the ideas they are exploring, not just regurgitating facts for an exam.
