Experienced GCSE English teacher, 1st class degree holder.
I have spent the past year teaching English Language and Literature as a GCSE, and am therefore very familiar with the specification, texts, and skills that are relevant to these qualifications. As a teacher, I gained significant experience working with disadvantaged and vulnerable young people, including those with special educational needs, and those who speak English as an additional language.
I received a 1st class degree in Social and Political Sciences (a joint honours including Sociology, Politics and Social Policy), and would enjoy tutoring a range of age groups on topics such as society, politics and citizenship.
Additionally, I am a long-time player of the bass, electric and acoustic guitars, and could provide beginner's lessons on each of these instruments.
As a teacher, and in my previous jobs in administration, I made extensive use of a range of IT applications, and have also been responsible for delivering training on the use of IT systems.
I am also a skilled cook, and would very much enjoy showing someone how to make delicious, affordable food.
