Member since 2020 Ms Heather Frances G

I’m an experienced, caring and reflective practitioner with a strong history of raising GCSE attainment in a short space of time. I’ve been teaching English Literature and Language in both state and private schools, over the last 12 years. I’ve also taught GCSE Media and A Level Literature, along with a few years of teaching KS2 English (along with a few other Humanities based subjects). I’ve also taught Dance and Drama at Key Stage 3, I’m a qualified journalist and I’ve been Key Stage 3 English Lead on three occasions in my career! I write for pleasure still, and of course actively read for pleasure! Currently I’m reading Bill Bryson’s ‘The Body’ as I love his journalistic style, having just finished ‘Notes from a Small Island’. I possess strong experience of teaching to most exam boards - WJEC, IGCSE (I’m an accredited moderator), AQA and some Edexcel (though not Literature). I’ve privately tutored throughout my career, Year 7 to GCSE students - mainly Y10s and Y11s with achieved grades double than predicted.
