Mr Mark B

I have been teaching English in secondary schools in Devon and Gloucester since 2000, with 9 years' experience as a Head of English. These include comprehensive and grammar schools and my current position in a private school. The most important thing I have learned in that time is that my specialist knowledge, however vital, is the least important part of my skill set. My role is to coach students to manage themselves as effective learners. I am experienced with GCSE, IGCSE and A Level, including English Language, English Literature and Media Studies. I have worked for OCR examining board as a coursework moderator and I currently teach Edexcel IGCSE English Language and English Literature, AQA A Level English Language and OCR A Level English Literature. I keep myself up to date with the specifications for all boards. I would welcome the chance to learn about a new student's goals and aspirations, and design a bespoke package of teaching and mentoring to help them on their journey.
