My tutoring approach
I am a very calm teacher believing that the best way for anyone to achieve is to believe in their potential and to make them feel special.
I have a wealth of exam board experience and understand how numerous exam boards devise and mark their papers, therefore I know how best to answer questions to achieve the higher grades.
Tutoring experience: 15+ years
I have worked in an inner city school in the UK for the last 17 years teaching Geography, Citizenship, Leisure, Travel and Tourism at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5 and I am an examiner for 6 of the UK exam boards. I have previously been a Subject Leader Geography for 5 years and a Subject Leader Travel and Tourism for 8 years. I am now an online Head of Geography for an online school.
I mark and moderate ELC, BTEC First, GCSE and IGCSE in Geography, Travel and Tourism, and Environmental Management.
I am a coach and mentor for teachers and work for four companies as a teacher trainer. I have mentored teachers undertaking a Masters in Teaching and Learning on a 1-2-1 basis, as well as given 1-2-1 tutoring in English language to EAL KS3 pupils.

Heather is a very clear, reassuring and professional tutor. She has provided invaluable help to my daughter preparing for her GCSE geography and really goes the extra mile - she was even willing to mark any past exam questions from 630am to discuss in a lesson the morning before her GCSE! Excellent!
Heather provided excellent feedback, and useful information on exam question techniques. Very friendly, which helped put my daughter at as she was quite apprehensive about the on-line session.
