About Sylvia

Experienced Geography and Tutor

I have been teaching geography to GCSE, IGCSE, IB and A' level for 16 years and I also have plenty of experience of teaching English as an Additional Language. I spent a year teaching English to proficiency level in an English school. I am currently Head of Geography in a very successful secondary school. Last year my GCSE students achieved 72% A* to A and my A level students achieved 56% A* to A as well as having a 100% pass rate.

I like to make my lessons as fun as possible and have always had excellent results from tutoring and school teaching. I usually tutor in the student's home and always tailor the lesson to the student's needs. I have moderated coursework and internal assessment and worked as an examiner for several examination boards, including Cambridge, Edexcel, AQA and IB which helps me to know what the examiner is looking for.

Reference for Sylvia Hutchinson by Dr Faulkes

Written by Stewart F
Sylvia Hutchinson is a teacher with a proven record of excellence in the delivery of Geography. In the 5 years and more I have known her, the Geography grades for A Level and GCSE at Princess Helena College have often been the best results for any subject in the school; indeed, with CAT scores of +3 for A Level and +1.1 for GCSE this year she has easily retained this position. Her skills have recently been acknowledged by the Head, as she takes the lead in promoting and spreading good practice throughout the school.

She takes pride in her work and is tireless in support of the most and least able. She has a great deal of experience as an examination marker; her grading and understanding of assessment are excellent.

Tutee reference

Sylvia was extremely helpful in providing me with wider geographical knowledge, not just that of my A level syllabus. Practicing exam questions was beneficial as I was able to recognise my weaknesses, therefore improving my technique. Her teaching style is patient and at a good pace.
Subject:
Geography

Improved exam technique and knowledge of synoptic links between Human and Physical Geography.
