“I have been a Teacher of English for 16 Years; for the last 15 years, I worked at a very successful comprehensive school in Birmingham where I taught students with a range of abilities at key stages 3,4 and 5. At this school, I led the teaching, monitoring and development of English at key stages 3 and 4 and I was Head of Faculty for 2 years. I was very proud to lead a department that supported students in achieving outstanding English GCSE results that were in the top 10% nationally.
Since my retirement as a teacher, I have enjoyed using my knowledge and skills to tutor individual students to develop their understanding and skills in preparation for GCSE English examinations. Furthermore, for the past two years, I have ensured my subject knowledge is kept up-to-date by marking both language and literature papers for AQA English GCSE examinations. “
