AS WELL AS TEACHING ENGLISH, I AM ALSO AN AQA EXAMINER FOR THE NEW GCSE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE CURRICULUM INTRODUCED IN 2017. My passion and drive comes from looking forward to and enjoying helping my students to reach their highest potential. All my lessons have been graded ‘Good’ and mostly ‘Outstanding’ by both Ofsted and my line managers. After teaching Childcare and Education at Further Education College for five years, I have been teaching GCSE English Language & Literature for 7 years and tutored part-time for three years. I am also a qualified Specialist Leader in Education (SLE) and I teach GCSE English language and literature to students ranging from year 7 (11yrs) to year 11 (16yrs).  In addition to teaching English full time, I have also been part of the `learning leader` team within my school which entails providing CPD (Continuing Professional Development) to all members of staff and mentoring 10-12 of these throughout the year. I have also provided support to newly qualified teachers and cover teachers as well as training to LSA staff; helping them to improve their practice in working with professional teachers and their assigned SEN students. My other role within the school has been the EAL (English as an Additional Language) coordinator which entails identifying, training and supporting staff who teach students for whom English is a second language and students who struggle with spoken and written English. My hobbies include: directing and performing Shakespearean drama, reading European and Post-colonial literature, cooking, growing my own vegetables through a hydroponic system and creating hand designed/woven rugs. Academic Qualifications: BA Hons - English and US literature Masters - English - Shakespeare PGCE - Teacher Training QTS - Fully qualified teacher Status SLE - Specialist Leader of Education

How would you describe your teaching style?

I like to model what I am teaching online in order for the student to gain greater understanding and reference point when needed for revision. I also use visual teaching methods such as informative YouTube videos and I use a step by step strategic method to approaching each of the assessment objectives (criteria) that are needed within each question on the exam paper. This way, the student knows and can provide exactly what the examiner is looking for. I always encourage the student to achieve their best potential.
